Skype Shenanigans

10 Jul

Why do people fall for the “the next 10 followers to go follow so-and-so will get Justin’s skype!”? Seriously, it’s not true, and you guys are just falling for a lame trick to help someone else get more followers. If these people had Justin’s skype, they wouldn’t need to feel special by getting more followers on Bieber fan Twitter.

These people clearly aren’t giving away Justin’s real skype, but say that they were. How is that fair to him? When people offer to just nonchalantly hand out his number, skype, and Facebook, it doesn’t benefit you, and only hurts him. You obviously don’t understand how hard it is for celebrities to maintain any kind of private life, and Justin is still a kid, why invade his privacy? He wants to be able to videochat with his friends and have a Facebook, why take that liberty from him? If you got his skype he wouldn’t talk to you, so getting all his information is pointless. Do you know how it feels to have girls call you and scream in your ear asking if it’s Justin, or to have your skype hacked, or to get hundreds of friend requests from random fans? No. So you can’t possibly understand how frustrating it is.

Similarly, it’s not fair to him to try and say that “if he loved his fans he wouldn’t bother talking to us!” That’s not true. You can appreciate your fans without having them in your private life. How would you feel if someone randomly added you on Skype and tried to videochat you, when you had no idea who they are? It’s the same premise. When girls just add his accounts, it’s just like adding someone you don’t know, and it’s pretty weird.

Bottom line: if someone’s offering you his skype to go follow someone, it’s not true. And if you cyber-stalk him to get any of his personal accounts, you’re wasting your time and energy, because all it will accomplish is frustrating a 16 year old guy who wants to maintain some kind of a private life.

    Seriously! Like I know someone who knows him Really well. and i don’t take advantage of it because he deserves his privacy and i’m not gonna go and interrupt all that. My friend (the one who knows him) and me have talked about alot of this stuff and we both agree that he deserve’s his privacy. He doesn’t deserve it at all. We may love him but every person deserve’s some privacy. He does so much more than alot of stars/singers and some people take advantage of that, more than they should.
