My name is Risa. I'm 25 years old and live in Boca Raton, Florida. I have battled with my weight since I was about 6 years old, and for the last couple years, I was finally winning the fight. But I slipped, gaining back more than I'd prefer from my lowest weight in ages. Now I'm buckling down again to shed the weight so I can look on the outside the way I feel on the inside. But the road isn't always straight and smooth. For more information on my life-long weight loss journey, please view my first post here. This blog exists for me, to keep me on track and motivated. If you don't like personal posts or personal opinions, you took the wrong fork at Albuquerque!

It’s called Redirection.

what she do???

Yea what she do now?

She a had homeless young man accept her award as the camera panned to her and her fake crying in the audience…. The young man spoke about the homeless situation, especially in LA…. Not to take away from that issue, but she (or her publicist) knew exactly what they were doing…. With all that is going on in the world, let alone the country, THIS is number one. Yeeeeaaaa.

Yea I just saw it. I was confused as hell watching that. Also, supposedly MTV cut the people in Ferguson interview out the show. They trying to change the focus so much

RIGHT?! Homelessness is a huge problem but really? Bringing awareness to that?! The young man she put on stage CHOSE to be homeless and comes from an upper-middle class family from Oregon! He CHOSE tone homeless when his parents stopped paying his college tuition. Fuck that. I ain’t supporting your fake shit.

I heard it was her cousin lmao

Yeah. Because it&#8217;s not like there are 610,042 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States.
And it&#8217;s not like, of that number, 222,197 are people in families, and 387,845 are individuals.
And it&#8217;s not even like ~18% of the homeless population (109,132) are considered &#8220;chronically homeless.&#8221;
And, hey, screw the fact that about 50,000 youths in the U.S. sleep on the street for six months or more.

I&#8217;m sure the fact that she did what she did at the VMAs totally won&#8217;t have any impact on how her fans respond to homelessness. And it&#8217;s totally selfish of her to talk about it. No form of suffering should be discussed unless it&#8217;s the specific kind that you find most treacherous, right? Okay then.
There&#8217;s a lot of bad shit going on in the world. I have posted a shit ton about Ferguson on my main blog and a light amount on here. I stay involved in that and try to make sure people I know are informed and take action to help the side of justice (i.e. Mike Brown, to be clear). But as impassioned as I am about it, I do realize IT&#8217;S NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM IN THE COUNTRY OR THE WORLD. OTHER SHIT IS GOING ON SIMULTANEOUSLY.
But you refuse to acknowledge that she tried to do SOMETHING good when no one else did. All you want to do is rip her to shreds because it wasn&#8217;t to your liking. Even if 10 people volunteer at shelters or bring food to local homeless or whatever because of what she did, it&#8217;s more than what would have happened from her going up and talking about how grateful she is for her makeup artist and her costume designer or whatever the fuck celebs normally talk about in their speeches.
So all of you can go eat a big back of gonorrhea-coated scrotum because I am so fucking sick how nothing certain people do is EVER good enough for some pricks.

I made a boob cake. Red velvet with white chocolate cream cheese frosting. Took TWO DAYS. But I think it’s one of the best cake’s I’ve ever made. And I don’t even like red velvet. Or didn’t? I don’t know. I’m proud. It was all worth it for my friends’ birthdays. Two lovely ladies. (Not pictured.) They’re so damn wonderful. <3
