i didn’t fully watch the oprah special with harry and meghan.
i saw highlights,
and ( x wrote an entry about my thoughts ).
i came to my own preconceived notions about who i thought they were.
it didn’t help i had people in my ear and view who didn’t care for her.
my “all things royals” stanning friend pressured me to watch the netflix doc,
harry & meghan,
i was left with…
A change of heart and became a lightweight supporter.
i’m not gonna be tuning into everything they do but i get them.
i loved the mother and it seems harry isn’t that far off from that tree.
i felt a lot of meghan not fitting in and feeling different as a kid.
i get her reliving it once she married prince harry.
watching it made me realize something else tho:
All these people out here,
trying to get their time in the spotlight since social media made it easy,
couldn’t handle what really comes with fame and celebrity.
it made me grateful that i never wanted that life.
i’m a polite person who speaks to everyone.
to be told i can’t speak to reporters because “it looks bad” is so wild to me.
that would be fuckin’ up my groove.
not only that:
Tabloids (and not IG tabloids) trying to get the scoop from your past.
People (including family) getting paid to spill your tea for their come-up.
Being photographed EVERYWHERE you go would be annoying.
You can’t even depend on filters cause they’ll snap you looking crazy.
If you can’t even have a bad day it can be used against you.
The moment you aren’t poppin’,
people are praying for your downfall.
and not only that:
Racism hits harder for black celebs within white spaces.
Crab in the barrel hits harder amongst your own in black spaces.
i see why beyoncé is here today and gone tomorrow.
that isn’t a life to aspire to.
so when i see these male attentionistos upset cause of gay attention,
or these d list “shade room” attentionistos getting mad over comments,
we should realize:
These aren’t real stars.
they would never be able to handle the life of meghan markle.
turn us off,
or take their own lives.
i’ll be tuned in for part 2:
