  1. Yeah - just to clarify I’m not saying she does, just referencing that post! I have no clue what her body image issues are (if she has any)

  2. No I was agreeing with you! It was another poster who used the term body dysmorphia.

    If only this forum had some sort of... moderators?

    Look, Jesy is beautiful and all that, but that’s not how issues like this work. She was at a stage where her mental health was suffering and she took the decision to walk away and be able to manage it on her own terms.

    If you’re able to acknowledge that she was struggling, you’re able to understand that this isn’t “of her own doing” at all - it’s effectively a mental health issue caused by years of toxic messaging about women’s bodies and the fact that, frankly, her body didn’t look like the other three’s when the band came out, and she did get a lot of stick for it.

    That trumps your frustration that your favourite girl group couldn’t hit an arbitrary milestone of longevity, I’m afraid.

    Please temper your posts on this subject and try and have more compassion for Jesy’s position.
     
  4. As someone rightfully pointed out, this is exactly what Demi Lovato has been struggling to cope with in the public eye for over a decade. And to be frank Jesy has made TWO public statements regarding her departure, not that it needs justifying.

  5. Just reading fans are going into meltdown on Twitter because Jesy is on a blocking rampage with the fans... good! I don’t get why they feel the need to bombard her with hate over all of this. It’s getting out of hand! The drama is too much, it’s release week we should all be excited about Confetti!!!

    I feel like the hot take of ignoring the article because Confetti just dropped is... a lot? Hate in either direction is ridiculous, but if a group that shared a united front together for ten years disbands and both parties are on the promo circuit talking about it, fans are going to comment on it.

    Just watched the Say You'll Be There video and it suddenly hit me how they're walking scene at the end of Shout Out reminded me of that. Wonder if it was on purpose?
     
  8. The Confetti video is close to 10 million views in a week… compare that with the Break Up Song video which has 16 million over 11 months. I know the videos are drastically different in terms of quality/replay value and pandemic restrictions but still, quite impressive.
     
  9. Confetti will be platinum. I can feel it!

  10. I've watched Confetti 20 times already. Not sure I finished my one Break Up Song watch (I love love the song though!).

  11. Also 'it was just a job'...well it got to the part where the job wasn't being done (promo with crying members, Sweet Melody video going out unfinished, missing members on big projects), so that spelled trouble for both the members not okay with the work and the ones who liked the work.

    They will be fine, all four of them.

  12. I don’t understand why they didn’t just combine unused footage from the vertical video a la four way split screen.

  13. For anyone in the US
     
  14. Confetti is an absolute Bop.
     
  15. The only Break Up Song I acknowledge is the full screen version on Vimeo with the lighting and spinning podium. I’ve erased the quarantine version from my mind.
     
  16. 3 part youtube series from Since September on BBC Youtube little cameo from Jade in this first episode also. They sing one of there new songs towards the end !

  19. I feel like if they're going to win Best Group, they will almost certainly perform in some capacity. Otherwise probably not, especially with Leigh being quite heavily pregnant.

  20. Ugh their red carpet pictures with Leigh pregnant will be such an iconic full circle moment, especially if they have a Best Group Award in their hands afterwards.

    Also if she chooses to perform it'll be iconic too.
