Rise up Ben

by Anonymousreply 337December 3, 2021 11:47 PM

You're a fucking retard.

by Anonymousreply 1November 21, 2021 2:50 PM

Since I just saw those obviously bullshit studio exec emails on Deuxmoi that end with a list of who needs a new manager to make a comeback, I think Ben should be on that list too. Either its an agent/manager issue or he’s just completely lost focus on acting with this silly music promo stuff. Even with the pandemic it’s kinda shocking he’s only shot one episode of something in 2 years. If he thought papwalks and emojis with JH would help his career he clearly thought wrong.

by Anonymousreply 2November 24, 2021 6:28 AM

R3 I mean I think it’s obvious the music thing was something Ben really wanted to do so I’m not surprised it probably took up most of his time

by Anonymousreply 3November 24, 2021 12:05 PM

R3 Yes I think Benny really did sit there (after realising there were no more imminent papwalks with the Ho) in April last year, contemplating his navel and thinking ‘do I want to be 80 and not have released - sorry, shared - *my music*?’

Might even have realised that HoFace was using him at that point*. He actually used the word ‘pining’ in that latest (but recorded a while back?) interview which is, I think, the first time I heard that word from him. Seems maybe he does read DL and various other sites as we all called him out on that!

* not that it stopped him going back for more of course.

Maybe his brother or mother actually talked some sense to him during his birthday stay in London. Because afterwards he started to distance himself from her.

R5 really? This theory again? What on earth makes you think his family is any different from him or presumes to tell him who to be friends with? That is NOT A 14-year old!

R6 Sorry I just can’t imagine Julianne Hough rejecting him… And yes he isn’t 14 and all family’s are different but I know mine would definitely talk shit and bother me about having a fling with a..woman like her…at 40. They want grandkids!

by Anonymousreply 7November 24, 2021 1:31 PM

He did took his distance in august/September. Maybe it the fact that he was back home and way from her with his loved ones that made him think a bit. Maybe he finally opened his eyes about how toxic she was but something must have happened for him to distance himself like that and especially talking about the « claptrap »

R9 yeah that’s my theory too. Like it can’t be only the distance because she was in Europe for an entire month and they still play their emojis game but a month in uk and he took his distance from her. We’ll never know what happened, unless her niece wants to spill some tea

I think it’s pretty clear Rise Up is about her from what he said the inspiration was and the timeline and the emojigate activity while he was filming that music video. And 11:11 might be about her based on the other emojigate clues plus it fits him trying and failing to be with her. I don’t think all 5 songs are about her though

I’ve actually been really surprised at how open Andrew has been about the loss of his mom after basically becoming a recluse after spider man fame. It’s like he’s been broken open again in a wonderful way and his new movie on Netflix is definitely worth a watch.

Ben has claimed that this music release has made him more open but I actually think it’s the opposite. His interviews used to be interesting to watch and all slightly different even if he was promoting the same thing but his latest interviews on his music have been so incredibly boring and similar it’s like he has nothing left to talk about and is only open about one singular topic

Well Ben’said “Wear a Mask” in Comic Con Stuttgart’s story - not enough in my opinion. Hope they’ve got more restrictions in place than that and maybe just not telling the fans about them! London Comic Con didn’t tell anyone about the screens at the autograph tables (just the photo ops) so I wouldn’t put it past them. And now we seemingly have yet another worrying Covid variant from SA. I think they’re crazy for doing these cons in wintertime.

And if I were ben? I’d start feeding her fake information to see how quickly it got out. Every time there’s a convention or a chance for a meeting, she acts like she’s so much *closer* to ben after it and that she’s so much more important to him than anyone else. It’s nauseating.

R72 Oh I’m afraid our German friend will be the same highly irritating person she’s always been - her and her ‘special relationship’ with Ben, lmfao.

We all knew she’d be ramping it up during this con. I find it all really sad to be honest. That she feels like she has to brag and boast and act like she’s got a special connection with him - she’s delusional. Maybe feels sidelined because of all the new S&B fans he’s got. No-one believes a word she says in any case. However I don’t think she’d take it as far as stalking him. Or is that due to circumstances rather than choice as she doesn’t live in the US?!!

He probably told her he’s got an actual Xmas single coming out or something, you know the collab with stories which we all know about anyway 🥱. Anyone do lip-reading? So that when she finally releases her Secret Video we can work out what he’s telling her?!!

R88 Correct, it was another fan - who is also there at the con - so look out for more of the same BS from her! But we shouldn’t be naming (only shaming). I think it’s acceptable to heap criticism on someone if they’re being ridiculous or delusional which these two are, and we’re also short of Ben content, so….. We just won’t be saying names this time around.

R79 It’s better than not having a screen but he shouldn’t really have any contact with them IMO.

R94 Jessie is a fool. Yes I think it’s down to the individual guest… glad to see Benny’s been more sensible.

R95 R98 For all the newbies here who weren't around for Montanagate, I will remind the internet. Ben knows how to appear to do the right things about Covid when in public. But of course, when he thinks no one's watching in his private life, he's a very different animal that doesn't follow the rules At. All. He knows he's being watched while in public at this con. He's going to do everything properly to be safe while out in public today and tomorrow. Cause he's a good boy. But if you think there's even the slightest chance he's not going to privately hang out and hug n' kiss with his plexiglass-less hugging favorite costars of all time You. Are. Delusional.

People acting like we all already knew about Omicron more than 48 hours ago when they probably all had to make these decisions about plexiglass a couple weeks ago. It’s a very hot commodity and not easy to obtain more of in 24 hours if they all suddenly decided they needed it. Requiring that everyone be vaccinated for entrance and photo ops probably seemed like enough a few weeks ago and boosters are approved for everyone 18 and up nationwide in the US and have been accessible to everyone for several weeks now even before the official announcement came from Biden so it’s highly likely he’s been boosted and is more confident about it than even when he was at the London con. The reason why it’s gotten so bad in Austria and Germany is because of the people refusing to get vaccinated and honestly good riddance to all of them we shouldn’t care about those people at all anymore if that’s the decision they are going to make except for the strain it’s putting on the healthcare system so that’s why lockdowns are being used again for the sake of easing the burden on hospitals. It doesn’t mean healthy young vaccinated people are suddenly not safe especially the boosted ones.

R126 R127 R128 Speaking in generalities, whether anyone likes it not, women, through no fault of their own, literally do have an expiration date. Women will start to age and show it, therefore no longer be considered attractive enough to date, and then will undergo menopause which literally renders them useless in society. And whether anyone likes it or not, men, entirely by their own choosing, remain incredibly immature WELL into adulthood. Society does not truly ever require them to grow up, wise up, expand their knowledge and thinking, talents, anything really. Thankfully there are men who do grow up by and after 40, it's not in fact impossible. The problem being discussed here is when a man finally comes into his own at 40ish and actually becomes a desirable potential partner for his peers among women, those same 40ish women are now too old to date and largely out of luck. Unless of course, those women go for the much less desirable immature ones that are desperate enough to date an older woman.

To R127, dating much older men when you were young led to great sex and relationships for you, and therefore you approve of them. And I say with sincerity that I have no problem or judgment with your actions/viewpoint there. Experience recommends a man and I completely understand. But I do ask you to consider the larger context I attempted to outline above and consider that maybe the new generation isn't being too puritanical, closeminded or online when they complain about May/December relationships. Perhaps how connected and online they are allows them to see that larger context, and that every time a young woman agrees to date a much older man, she literally chooses to continue the endless cycle that confirms a woman's expiration date, and allows men to languish in immaturity for most of their lives. Personally, I also don't judge them at all if they want to break that cycle.

Well, as a woman 40+ I cannot at all confirm the above as my experience. Quite the contrary. I know plenty of couples where the man is younger. I also see no trouble for mothers finding new partners. The attraction of success and money and experience goes for everybody. It is only now that there are enough women with such attributes around. It used to be only Madonna and Cher, but that has drastically changed. I used to like to date guys in their mid thirties when I was twenty. I still want to date them now that I am over forty. Funnily enough, nowadays, more of them want to date me then ever before. So run with it, everybody. Love is love!

And what is his new obsession with varying shades of beige?? He keeps doubling down on his various beige disasters. His merch is basically the same color.. WHY?? Maybe it's just Ben being honest? No false advertising folks, he is literally as bland and boring as the colors he chooses to wear.

Also, I cannot fucking stand the oversized white sneaker trend. Specifically with him, they cut off his legs and make him look shorter than he is. A ridiculous look. Does he think he can't look attractive anymore just because he's 40? Cause he's making nothing but unbelievably ugly choices lately.

He likes the attention lol if I were him I would probably think it was fun to fuck with the Darklinas too especially if he has seen the season 2 scripts and knows it’s going to get darker and less redeemable soon so he’s milking this era

I know we’ve been commenting about how the Darklinas are ridiculous for IRL shipping Ben and JML (still true) but can we take a moment to appreciate the absolute insanity at the other end of this fandom that they seem to battle daily ….WHO THE HELL says “if you turn 40 that’s basically pushing 50” and therefore Ben is now double JML’s age 😂😂 what kinda of silly mental gymnastics is this you can’t just age Ben by a decade when he still looks 30 and is still painfully trying to figure out his sneaker game while dabbling with the full spectrum of neutral color palates

R238 I personably doesn’t see anything more than a friendly hug. Another account reposted it and someone said it was after she got emotional during her q&a so could be because of that?

by Anonymousreply 247November 30, 2021 8:58 AM

You must understand that many darklinas come from very different cultures. There is so much projection. Any adult sees co-workers who get along well.

by Anonymousreply 248November 30, 2021 12:36 PM

R247 R248 Totally agree, and makes even more sense if she was feeling emotional. They’re just so *desperate* to have their characters and the actors together in real life. It’s getting tedious.

R243 R244 They look like the vintage hi tops he wore when he dressed up as Marty McFly for a fancy dress party. Maybe he’s recycled them?!! 😆 I agree they make even his long legs look shorter - don’t mind the other white sneakers so much.

R251 Points to them for finding it, but no points for the (still!!!) crap picture, but I guess beggars can't be choosers and all.. Though this does give evidence to the 40th birthday present theory for our little Leo. Now you just have to wonder who it was from that knows and celebrates that he's a Leo and would willingly spend well over $200 on a birthday present. . . .

Wow. I came back for the first time in what feels like months and all we have to talk about is the darklina children's conspiracy theories and Ben's sneakers. Can one of his old flings come out of the woodwork again to stir up discussion because I'm not sure I can survive being a fan anymore with zero gossip.

by Anonymousreply 256November 30, 2021 6:26 PM

R255 And you know this how? Because the first time we noticed it was when he was in London? Granted, it is absolutely impossible it was gifted to him literally just before he left since no one in LA would see him again till LONG after his birthday. No you're right, it obviously had to be bought in London, there's no other possible explanation!

by Anonymousreply 257November 30, 2021 6:27 PM

R257 and what you know for sure she bought for him? Because nobody else could have buy it for him?

by Anonymousreply 258November 30, 2021 6:36 PM

R258 I didn't affirmatively say she bought it for him, I wondered if she might have. That's called speculation. You on the other hand affirmatively said she didn't buy it for him and affirmatively claimed it was bought in London. So feel free to share your evidence for your alleged "facts."

by Anonymousreply 259November 30, 2021 6:45 PM

R259 The company that makes the necklace is located in the UK so it does seem likely that it was purchased there.

by Anonymousreply 260November 30, 2021 6:49 PM

R259 « it’s from the fairy of course, same price of her necklace (that we don’t even know it’s from her or it was hers because she’s obsessed with that shit) » maybe make it more clear you’re making a speculation . When he got the necklace we all speculated he got it when he was in uk for his bday. They do deliver but it’s a uk brand seems. We’re free from JH so why need to bring her. Whatever

by Anonymousreply 261November 30, 2021 6:49 PM

R261 That quote wasn't me. I was speculating when I said, "Now you just have to wonder who it was from. . . " The rest of the sentence makes the implication of who clear, but that's only because the context is very real (and months ago VERY active) and everything with him can so easily tie back to her. That still hasn't ended, and that still pisses me off. I don't know where/when/from whom he got the damn thing and unless anyone here is a spy for Ben, none of us do. Given that he was wearing it before his birthday, did one of his UK friends buy him an early $200 gift? Or did he wander into a random jewelry shop one day and ask if they had any lion necklaces, despite previously emphasizing that he "doesn't believe in all that claptrap?" Or if you're going to bother to buy such a special (expensive) gift, would you make it even more special by buying it from the person's original home. Like Ben has said in all his recent interviews, it's the little extra touches that make things special.

We don't know, we can only gather up potential maybes here. So saying anything definitely is or definitely is not is foolish.

by Anonymousreply 262November 30, 2021 7:47 PM

The jewellery company is based in London and the necklace made its first appearance on his IG story on 30 Aug when he was flying to Toronto from London. It’s based on a character from Dante which ‘has the courage to take risks’. He’d just announced his music release. I’d say the evidence points to it either being a present from one of his family members or he bought it for himself. We don’t know for sure of course but I think the only things he and the Ho were swapping at that point were ‘secret’ emojis.

Well I don't have Spotify to check this myself, but here's some unintentional trolling.. 11:11 was the first single released and now has over 2 million listens on Spotify. Cool. Except wasn't Rise up the second single released? Before the rest of the album? And yet it has the same (approximate) 10% listen rate as the whole rest of the album??

by Anonymousreply 283December 1, 2021 1:20 AM

Just a reminder she posted a fairy + lion with a 40 on the nose on his bday, it’s not a complete stretch of the imagination she accompanied that with a local delivery lion necklace from a UK company on the announcement of his music/his 40th bday. Especially after he MAY have given her an 11:11 necklace marking the occasion for inspiring at least one of his songs. Besides his astrology sign, you don’t exactly have to be an academic genius to see the link between a lion and courage, particularly since she seems like a wizard of oz fan, even if she missed the specific reference of this necklace. It could also be from his mom or someone else, just saying it’s not completely beyond the stretch of the imagination that it’s JH related considering the bday/album/emojigate context. You don’t have to be physically in the same country as someone to give them a gift from that country lol but I hope that person trying to make that argument discovers e-commerce soon…it really is a blessing,
