I will never say that I’m not a fan of Grace or that I don’t support her career or endeavors, but I’m definitely not nearly as impressed or invested as I used to be. The change of the new channel brought a drastic change in content and above all, quality of that content. Bottom line: I don’t feel that obligated to watch Grace’s videos as much because she for some reason does not feel that obligated to make them. I thought that even cutting back to 3 days a week would make it easier for her, but it’s turned into just another cop-out to escape any kind of orginality or effort in being creative. Think about it, she only really has 1 day of the week now (wednesday) that allows her to just be herself and post a video of actual substance (should she even choose to do so).
The week of it’s Grace breakdown (as I see it)
Monday: Awkward and unoriginal podcast day, where we take a project from another medium (itunes), dress it up, and regurgitate it on the channel - usually accompanied by a youtuber game that we have literally seen by every youtuber on every channel in the free fucking world.
Wednesday: Watch me show you my stuff in a haul video/review a Taylor Swift song/ Buy my merchandise day. It’s basically her showing us shit that she has bought, or shit that she wants US to buy.
and finally, Friday: aka “the life and times of me and my boyfriend” day. Ya know, the day where she takes her travel cam to show you how many times her and chester are in a cab or an airplane together. Because let’s face it, that’s what a comedy channel is all about…getting you excited about a possible relationship as so you don’t pay attention to the fact that this isn’t a comedy channel anymore.
This may come across harsh, but I’ve been sitting on these thoughts for a LONG time. It’s sad and disappointing that now, with total creative control over her content that THIS is the direction she has chosen to go in. I remember when I used to refer to Grace as a comedian, but now, she really is just another youtuber.
Don’t bother filling up my inbox with hate, because I won’t respond to any of it. If you have something intelligent to say, I’m all ears and totally open to an ADULT discussion about this. I’m interested to hear what some of the older fans have to say regarding the topic, as they can probably remember what it all USED to be like, and how ridiculous it has come to be in such a short amount of time.
explanation for my absence.
Pretty much how i feel too.
I wouldn’t phrase it as harshly, but yes.
I hate to say it but this is too damn true
I really really hate to say it but I agree with most of this. Also, did I somehow make this up or did Grace say she would go back to doing 5 videos a week after HeyUSA? Idk, around the start of this year I found myself saying that I miss the “old” Grace videos more and more and I’m glad that I’m not the only one that feels this way :(
Edit: This has nothing to do with how I feel about Grace as a person, just her content/channel!
