      I fail to understand social media stars

      My seventeen year old daughter watches two different "Youtube stars". One is a gay man in Southern California, the other is a college student in Arizona. While I understand I am not their target market, I fail to understand why anyone would watch them. My kid listens to music I do not like really like, but at least I can understand the appeal on some level. With these there is nothing of interest. 

       

      She was home for lunch today so I watched a ten minute clip of the girl in Arizona. The video was made up of ten to twenty second clips of her daily life. It's like "this is me putting on make up, this me eating a bagel, this is me driving to school listening to rap music pretending to be ghetto, this is me in class, this is me eating lunch, this is me in class, this is me driving to dinner, this me in the gym, this is me with a face mask on getting ready for bed". There was nothing of interest for anyone (except for the twenty second clip of her working out). 

       

      I could understand there is a certain amount of interest in people's lives and their daily routines, but this girl had nothing of substance. A typical segment was "We are at the cafe eating lunch, (shows video of cafe two seconds), I'm with my friend Sara (pans to Sara for three seconds), Sara is eating a pizza (shows pizza), I'm eating a salad (shows salad), I'm on a diet and Sara is not (shows Sara waving). It's not even good footage either - really choppy. 

       

      And she has millions of followers.

      Oh for sure... my kid has his youtube stars that he follows and none of them are able to hold my interest for more than 15 seconds. And yet so many of them have 6 and 7 digit followers and most of them talk about gaming. I think some of them are still teenagers and make hundreds of thousands of dollars.

      People watch porn because they are horny. 

       

      There is no reason to watch someone doing nothing at all. I could understand it if they did something remotely interesting every now and then...

      C'mon Roc, Parenting! You aren't getting parenting?  Of course you don't get it, you're not supposed to get it.  You are Mayor McCheese in a small northern Calif town where everybody knows your name, with a facebook page that has at least 2,000 followers that idolize you and give you free extra large pepperoni pizza's on the weekends.

       

      Note to all, did any of your parents dig or were into what you were into as a teenager?  NO!  Generation after generation it's the same shit, the square pegs didn't dig the long hairs so they burnt down a portion of the Forest.

       

      Just make certain your children are God fearing and respectful as they move forward, especially coming out of the most confusing time of their young lives.  And remember the great legend himself, Ed Sullivan, wouldn't allow the camera's to film Elvis Presley lower than his torso in 1957, he was appealing to the parents, not the children.

      Facebook group is almost up to 4k now. 

       

      I disagree. As a parent, there are some things I cannot get into. Somethings I pretend to be into - such as when I went to see LaLa Land in the movies. (Okay, it was cute.) I am not into some of the music my kid is into, but I can understand this. I understand that somewhere there is some kind of artistic quality to it. But not with these YouTube stars. There is nothing there. Nothing at all.
