************READ THE DESCRIPTION!!!!!!!!*****************
So today I googled myself. I typed in DAHVIE VANITY and just curiously browsed through what people would normally discover on the internet. What I had come to suspect was indeed true. My name was dragged through the mud covered in lies and slander all to paint me out to be the villian. But like every story in life there are two sides. I never claimed to be a saint but I am sure as fuck ain't no devil. As I explored further through my "GOOGLIN" I uncovered malicious fictional tales about me that were spiraled into webs of deception filled with injustice and defamation. I can only imagine how many people everyday get pumped with so much bullshit in their heads. How I deal with it is simply ignoring it. They are invisible to me unless I give them the power to be.
People have said some pretty awful things about me, none of which are true. When people feel like you're not paying them enough, or ask for royalties on things they're not entitled to, or people don't get along with us and we have personality differences, or someone isn't doing their job on the road, and other reasons…well, people don't like getting let go, people start to make things up, bad things, out of anger and spite. Sure, there have been underage people on our bus, with their mother's or father's with them. If you know BOTDF, you know that you've never paid to "meet" the band and if you wanted to meet us, you could meet us. Our fans are mainly girls aged 12 – 17, so yes, I spend time with my fans, and no, nothing has ever happened beyond that. My real fans know me, they know my heart, and they know what I'm about and that all of these slanderous comments are lies. I don't let any of it affect me coming off of the best year of our lives, Jayy and I can say that 2013 is going to be insane and we can't wait to share with our fans and the SGTC what we're doing next.
I am human, just like you, I make mistakes, I fuck up, so do you. I yelled at a girl on stage the other night and said nothing less crazy than the rest of the things we say. Nothing happened beyond that, but looking back, I feel bad as I would never be violent or disrespectful toward a girl and I definitely was not bullying her. If you know our band you know how we advocate against bullying, we're actually launching the Love Conquers All foundation with It Gets Better next year to fight bullying and work with kids to stop this awful thing going on in our schools and in our society, that is what the Rise and Shine movement was about.
I know myself better than anyone else. And knowing that cracks a smile on my face every single day when I wake up . Deep inside I know I am not any of these disgusting and horrible things some people make me out to be. I am a righteous, stubborn, fussy, intelligent, compassionate, loyal, modest, shy, overcritical, insecure, hard working human being who just wants to be loved just like anybody else . I get a lot of amount of hate sometimes and I will admit it hurts my feelings but the overwhelming love and joy my fans bring me everyday outweighs all the negativity ever expressed against me. I make music for the SGTC and not the critics nor the ignorant haters. My fans are the heart thats beats inside of me. The blood in my veins that keeps me going and fighting. The true and real SGTC and fans know who I truly am. If you have lost respect for me I still wish you all the best. I don't live for the approval of others and I assure you I don't base my worth or value on what other people think about me. No one is perfect and if you sit here and believe that you are than you are lying to yourself and not staying true to who you are.
Everything the SGTC has given me this year and having an amazing 2012 makes me so grateful that nobody that hates on me could possibly stop me. 2013 is going to be a STELLAR year. With all my heart, thank you to my loyalist and proud supporters. I send my deepest gratitude to you. I would be nothing without you.
THANK YOU. // <3
