Well it looks like somebody put her in her place.............she changed her tune..............


2nd Update: Thursday night, Crystal apologizes via twitter, “Despite my gratitude and disgruntledness, I apologize 4a lack of prfessionlism ytrdy. Big girls d’t cry, right? They thrw kicks and pnches.”

***

Update: After re-tweeting a flurry of her followers’ anti-major label messages last night, Crystal calmed down a bit and tweeted,

“just frustrated with the politics of the industry. not just jive just disappointing how the industry has changed. every1s hands are tied.”

Finally, with the frustration seemingly out of her system, one last tweet,

“thanks for all of the support, guys. i have more freedom than most signed artists, so imma stop complaining. i love what i do. i am blessed”

Someone had to tell her how it is......and she shouldn't have gone on Twitter to voice her opinion.

Well, I just read at another board (no idea what the real truth is) that even though they just started dating she has known him longer than a few months.

I don't know - but at a time of trying to get your first CD recorded and promoted and traveling for gigs - just doesn't seem like the best time to take on the commitment of marriage. Especially to a man you only recently started dating. Talk about complicating your life!

Or naive or doesn't get that she isn't important on the music scene yet and shouldn't butt heads with the label and on and on.....

I had read she's known him for a few years. The story is still very much developing so who knows what's true and what's not. Still I think she's got a few screws loose or something because she has been making lots of mistakes lately especially with the label. If she keeps going like this well there won't be much to celebrate will there?

I read the story that she was engaged last night and I was like WTF? She broke up with her boyfriend just after idol and now she could be hooked up to be married. Sheesh three guys now and two have not worked out. Crystal worries me for sure.

Oh forgot to mention that it is being said that Crystal has known this guy Brian for years. I guess she is saying Brian gave her the name Mamasox after her son was born.

Oy Crystal has lost her mind I think. She had a twitter party last night and here are things she said:

She called American Idol a Circus,(Yeah Crystal go ahead and diss the show, so not smart)

She said that she is really in love and that she will be getting married in October. She said the guy has been in her life like forever and it was like bad timing with the two but now the time is here for them.

For her cd she said there may be a compromise between Black Friday and the New Year. WTF kind of answer is this. She wants spring evidently but she will go with jive on earlier but this is a huge thing. Black Friday get the holiday sales after the New Year you get sales like Allison got.

The girl needs to sit down and gather her wits and just cool the attitude and make her cd.

It always rubs me the wrong way when people use the show to further their career and than act like they are too cool for it afterward. Blake did that and it really turned me off to him.

Crystal wants it both ways. She wants the total freedom that being an independent artist gives you but she also wants the promotion, opportunities and money that you can get with a major label. The problem is if you are signed to a major label, you lose a lot of autonomy. Even the biggest stars have to tow the line to a certain extent.

It's like the scene in "The Extras Christmas Special" where Andy Millman is complaining to his agent about his career. (He's just quit his very popular series which has made him a star because it was too low brow and he wasn't getting the kind of respect he wanted.)

Anyway, the agent tells him: (Paraphrasing) "Some entertainers get to be rich and famous as well as respected. You're never going to be one of them. Pick the one you want to be."

That's where Crystal is at. She's got to pick whether she wants freedom to do as she wants artistically or does she want the financial security that being with a major label could afford her.

Very well stated and 100% true. Kelly Clarkson couldn't even get things her way and she was HUGE when she was fighting for it and won multiple Grammys!

This is going to be interesting to say the least.

Or for an even more glaring example: From what I understand Lady Gaga wanted another song released as a single instead of "Alejandro." She's probably the biggest pop star in the world today. Guess who didn't get her way?

It is goes two ways for me. If the show is good to you like they have been with Crystal then they need to shut up but if they do what they have done to Josh Gracin, Diana Degarmo,(she got her first appearance on the idol stage since her season during this last finale and that she wasn't even really invited it was if you are an idol alumni in the audience you will be singing), and others I really do not blame them one bit for saying something it they did because for some like them it is like American Idol threw them away and wanted nothing to do with them :(

Crystal Bowersox: 'Just Imagine"

Quote:
Bullying is not acceptable at any age, for any reason. To my adolescent mind, the reasons why my peers treated me poorly were cruel and insignificant; and mostly for reasons that were completely out of my hands. I experienced what seemed like constant emotional bruises and jabs, repetitive negative verbiage, name calling, and harassment not only within the walls of my home, but also in the halls of my school. I understand that growing up is tough for everyone. It's not an easy task for pliable minds to weave through the labyrinth known as puberty. But there are lines in this human experience that are not meant to be crossed so furiously and frequently.

I was often picked on for being poor. My brothers and I were part of the low-income school lunch programs, so our lunches were free. My clothes were never name brand or new, and usually rust stained due to hard water. I remember feeling so proud of myself for making the junior high school swim team, then hassled for attending meets wearing a used Goodwill suit because we couldn't afford the team ones and gear. In the winter season, I smelled like a camp fire and kerosene because our mother would use anything to heat the house, i.e. kerosene heaters -pluming smoke into the middle of the living room, or old shoes or garbage to stoke the wood-burning stove in the kitchen. My home life was beyond humble. At school, I was punished for it. I was also taunted by a few students for being diabetic. I was diagnosed at the age of 6, so these taunts started early on and were usually based upon fear and/or curiosity. Literally, students used the word, "Diabetic!!" as an insult among sneering and scoffing when I would eat something in class. I later learned to manipulate my health to miss school, because I dreaded being there so, and the hospital felt safer than home.

There are a few incidents that I remember quite vividly. I've managed to let go and block out a lot of things, but this one has stayed in my mind. School had just let out. I was headed to the bus, when I was suddenly pelted with ice. A few of the Varsity jackets had taken snowballs dipped them in water, which then turned into baseball-sized hail, and began stoning me. In pain, I tried to throw the ice-snowballs back, to no avail. I went home that night with my body and my spirit, black and blue.

There are far too many incidents to relive and write, but I will tell you this: the abuse that I encountered while attending public school drove me mad. I remember feeling suicidal all of the time, between dealing with a brawling, unkempt home life and the bullying at school. A pivotal moment for me was when I had learned to tie a slip knot, and spent a few hours staring at a noose. I had hung the rope over a rafter in the barn. I just stared at it, wanting to slip it over my head with almost every fiber of my being, but couldn't bring myself to do it. I felt that I had no place in the world, or even in the cafeteria until I was invited to sit with the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) kids. There I was accepted, straight, poor, diabetic, and all. I saw and heard some of the most demeaning things from other students directed at these kids. Immediately through association, I was branded and sent to slaughter, as well.

I left public school in what was supposed to be my junior year. My grades had fallen so much that I was held back. I had been playing gigs and shows around town through all of this, and music and writing was my only passion, love or friend. I was approached by a teacher who was working at the Toledo School For the Arts, a Charter school that was in its first experimental year. My father and I jumped at the idea of attending a school where kids played guitar in the halls before class, or were graded on their level of creativity and inventiveness. Not only did TSA offer me a place I could fit in, it offered me hope.

Even at TSA, it was hard to do well due to stress at home and illness, but I was a much happier and hopeful. Music and art were my saviors, and my parents and teachers knew it. And despite some lingering behavior issues, I excelled at the classes I was most interested in. When I was about 17 1/2, a light bulb came on above my head. I realized that when you turn 18, the only person you have to answer to is yourself. Bullies are no longer bullies; they can be legally punished for harassment and assault. Your parents can no longer tell you to go to your room if you chose to be independent and live elsewhere. When you act out of frustration and participate in self-destructiveness, you are the only person being defeated. I moved to Chicago, where the streets made me even more aware of how much bigger the world is than high school, and of all the limitless, positive, and productive possibilities in life just waiting to be seized.

If you, or your child is being bullied, I encourage you to take the battered mind and spirits, and lift them up. In light of the recent youth suicides, I beg for parents, teachers, and students to take responsibility and open your ears and eyes, and your hearts. It is imperative that a child or adolescent's cry for help be heard, no matter how silent it may be. Empathy and sympathy are characteristics that one embodies early in life and they begin in the home. We can only hope that the lessons we give to our young ones will be carried on throughout their days and years. Apathy and antagonism, unfortunately, are also sprouted from the very same seeds. Our children need to understand how their actions, inactions, and reactions will affect the chain of life's events not only on a local level, but also in a global way. There are adults who still do not understand how it's all connected. .

In this life, we are only victims if we allow ourselves to be. You may say I'm a dreamer, but dreams can become reality if we project love, acceptance, tolerance, kindness: if only EVERYONE did this -

Just imagine…

-Crystal Bowersox
