When I went on wordpress this morning, the first thing I saw was a headline that said: Kristen Stewart: Leading by Example? Now I can honestly say, that the title intrigued me. “Finally!” I thought. So, I clicked on the link to read the article. To my great dismay, once again, it was another article with basically nothing nice to say and all kinds of advice about how she should handle herself in the public light.
Not only was the girl hobbling up to the microphone, but she was also sporting bruises and a mane that looked like it hadn’t been brushed in about a week (seriously…can’t you afford a stylist to fix your hair?!). I really could have sworn she had just come out of her slumber in her coffin and downed a handle of vodka right before arriving at the awards ceremony. The monotone actress matched her physical appearance with her facial expression (notice I say it singularly) and tone of voice as she read off the nominees……
While Stewart had an excuse for her hobbling, I believe that the injury does not negate her appearance, nor her overall attitude. I mean, come on now, you are being seen by BILLIONS of people at this very moment, and you know it. Put a genuine smile on your face and look your best given the circumstances. And for heaven’s sake, you have the money to order your stylist to make you look fabulous!!!!
Kristen is a shining example of what NOT to do. Whether you are looking for a job/promotion or searching for a relationship, you should always make sure to go through the following mental checklist (which she apparently could have used last night):…..
This “expert” goes on to give advice including:
- Make sure your makeup is on point (check)
- Wear something professional (I suppose in this case she should have said appropriate for the situation) (check)
- Comb your hair (check)–Kristen has a stylist that does her hair–do you honestly think that Kristen does her own hair?
- Check your teeth for stray food (check)
- Use your resources (check)
ccady2012 also suggests that Kristen could have “easily asked someone to cover for her and avoided all of the scrutiny.” ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????????????????
Please feel free to comment on this person’s “insightful” (sarcasm intended) article at: http://multiviewblogs.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/kristen-stewart-leading-by-example/
I hate to use Us Weekly as a source, but at least this time they actually used credited quotes.
“She had sliced her foot and everyone was worrying about would she wear heels or flats or one heel, crutches or no crutches,” manicurist Ashlie Johnson told Us. “She tried so many options, she was really a trouper.”
“Kristen was nervous about her crutches so having her friends around playing music was just what she needed,” hairstylist Danilo said. “We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”
I love Kristen Stewart. I love that she is one of the most amazing young women of our time. She marches to the beat of her own drum—ignoring the fact that there are so many who speak against her. She is beautiful. She is intelligent. She is kind. She doesn’t say ugly things about other people. She’s kind to animals. She is a NICE person! She does her job despite the fact that she may have a physical injury. She shows up, despite the fact that she doesn’t know what will greet her. She shows up in spite of the fact that she does knows what she will endure even under the best of circumstances.
Last night was a perfect example of a young woman doing what is expected of her—not because she wanted to for publicity, not because she was feeling the need to get out and be seen, and certainly not because she was feeling her best physically. She showed up and let them yell at her and scream at her to turn this way or that, smile, and all the other things that the photographers scream to get a starlet’s attention. (And these are the reputable ones.) Kristen is really not the starlet that wants to get out and promote herself. She is introverted and would probably rather have a tooth pulled than to show up at these functions. She can’t go anywhere or do anything without being photographed and discussed. She was in pain because of her injury…but she showed up. She didn’t bow out and say she couldn’t do it. She lived up to a commitment she had made! This young lady is in the middle of a nightmare. It seems there is absolutely NOTHING she can do to please the haters. If she had called and said she couldn’t come because of her foot, then there would have been a firestorm about how she was using it as an excuse to not appear in public. She shows up to do her job and she gets insults for using (and not using) her crutches and accused of using her injury for PR. She didn’t smile, she didn’t fix her hair, she talks in a monotone—all complaints that have been voiced about her appearance last night.
Do you notice, however, that all of the people that are out there saying all of these ugly things, were not up there presenting an Oscar? They are not the ones that are in the spotlight? They are not the ones put in the bulls eye for every asshole that wants to take a pot shot. It is easy for them to sit in their offices in their cozy little chairs and moan and groan–complain and give advice. But the fact of the matter is, they don’t know “sh*t” about what is going on in the life of this young woman. Who are they to sit in judgement? Who died and left them with the title of “Critic of the Day”? What leads them to think that they have ANY right to say anything about what this young woman should or shouldn’t have done?
In the case of ccady2012 above, I suspect that her company has a blog and that everyone in the company is supposed to write an article as part of their job description. Well, she wrote her blog and made a complete ass out of herself. If she had just given suggestions as to how to prepare to go to a job interview or to meet someone for the first time, then she would have had a legitimate article. But, to attempt to link to Kristen Stewart and to have the audacity to offer advice to her is outrageous.
Now the truth of the matter is, that there will be very few people that see the article this ccady2012 woman wrote. But there are a lot of other people out there taking the same kind of aim at Kristen, with no more insight or legitimate right than she had.
Is Kristen Stewart leading by example? Hell, yes she is! An admirable, hold your head high and let them eat shit kind of example. I’m proud of her! And more power to her!
There is an old saying, “If you don’t have something nice to say about someone, don’t say anything at all.”
There is another saying that says, “People who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones.”
So unless you have NO faults and have NOTHING you could do better, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!!
