What's happened lately!

Hello everyone, Charlotte posting here, and it seems as though this is my first post!!

I just really wanted to talk about what has happened with things Mary not being online, opinions on the shoots and cover of Mel, Tyler quitting… all that jazz.

So, you all know that Mary has not been able to get online because of her internet going down – nothing she can help at all, we will just have to wait for her internet to be fixed. To the people that are saying all these things, about how Mel is not being portrayed as herself, I’d like to say that I think that magazines aren't really meant to represent the model, but as they are the magazines muse they should represent what the magazine wants them to since aren’t models meant to change for whatever product they are advertising? It’s sort of the same for this… just my opinion. I wasn't in the E chat when Mel was online with Mary and the other members of the team, so I don't even know the full extent of what was said or whatever, it wasn't anything bad and Tyler wasn't being manipulative, neither did they have to fight to get her to agree to the shoots and cover. Mel thought that fur was ''ghetto'' so she didn't really want to go through with the faux fur concept, but after Mary said it was all about luxury, and when Dora showed her a picture of Naomi Campbell nude wearing a fur jacket she agreed, so we just went from that.

I’d also like to comment on Tyler quitting. Tyler - I know that you won't really be here this week due to school, but; I think it would have been a bit nicer if you vould have waited until Mary got back to quit, and if you couldn't have done it publicly... whatever thought, your choice. :)

That’s all I have to really say for now… x

I never really thought there was anything wrong with the shoots, as nothing was ever actually shown. Mel was covered up to a certain extent. :)

The models must represent what the magazine wants,only if they want to.Models decide what they want to do and then they do it.Mel didn't agree with this,so She had not to do it.

I have to agree with Charlotte, its the models job to adapt to whatever the magazine requires, this has to be true to both the real world, and Stardoll magazines.

Fur is "ghetto"? Couldn't you at least use another world, Mel? I'm not black, but I still find this word rather offensive.

When I first saw the mag, (I hadn't seen C's post yet) I thought that the shoot was beautiful! And then I saw C's post, I was confused on why someone would have such a big opinion on a stardoll mag! And like everyone here is saying, the model must do what the mag wants it too!

You are right. The model does change to be whoever the magazine wants her to be.

BUT MEL IS NOT A MODEL FOR THE MAGAZINE.SHE IS THE COVERGIRL.
ITS A HUGE DIFFERENCE. IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE ABOUT WHO SHE IS AS A PERSON.
AND THE E TEAM MADE HER LOOK LIKE A 30 YEAR OLD PROSTITUTE AND WHORE.

Do you get it now?

I agree to a certain extent that models are to be used as they have said they are to be portrayed, as well as the fact that they have to agree on the circumstances. But if they are not 100% clear on them, it is either the model's fault or the magazines, or even both. It is not up to me to decide, nor do I want to be a mediator, but I think in this case it is both.
