Jessica Rose and Taryn Southern Team Up As ‘Webutantes’ - Tubefilter

Jessica tells us about her first reactions to the comments on lonelygirl15. “I was so mad at first,” she says, “web video was so new for entertainment when I first started lonelygirl that I wasn’t used to seeing bad comments about every single person.” A few years later she’s a bit more seasoned in the web’s unabashed ways. “Now I’ve come to accept that no matter who you are or no matter what you do, you’re going to have a million horrible comments about you as well as a million good ones.” So does she read them? “I occasionally do,” she admits, “but not for my own sake—not like what do they think about me. For Sorority Forever I would skim it and see what they think of the show. Sometimes there are bad comments and I even agree with them.”

  1. Digg it.


  2. Hey Jenni, Feel free to use our image, but please use the version that includes the Tubefilter watermark (http://news.tubefilter.tv/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/the-webutantes.jpg). Many thanks! -Brady @ Tubefilter

  3. Sure thing Brady...that was a quick screengrab I did but I will modify it!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. I must say, that was a wonderful article. Not like the crap you get in magazines. "Beyonce sits and sips cafe mocha skinny in her oversized louis vitton hat and sweater." Then there's a brief segment about the upcoming CD, movie, whatever so-and-so is promoting. Then "So, what do you make of rumors that you're fat? How do you feel about the controversy over your breakup with the Jonas Brothers? What are your favorite makeup brands?"

    This was nice because it wasn't just about Jess and Taryn and all the drama and gossip. It was about the essence of being a web celebrity and how they hope to change the perception of internet entertainment. That's what they wanted it to be about. And it kept me interested instead of rolling my eyes or snorting at the ridiculousness.

    Sorry, I just had to rant about that. I never realized I even felt that way about magazines.

  5. Go Jess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  6. The digg would probably have done better if it had Jessica Rose in the title/image rather than Lonelygirl. Lonelygirl tends to be treated as a thing of the past within the digg community so next time, try that spin on the digg.

  7. Great article!

    As beautiful as Taryn is, I don't think her new hair does her justice.
