Scotty Vanity – I Like Your Style

You might not have heard of Scotty Vanity, songster and fun-guy of MySpace and MySpaceTV fame with his hit Internet single I Like Your Hair, and that's a shame. Scotty is upbeat and fun, and his music is undeniably catchy - pshyeah.

Scotty may not be the next Justin Timberlake (yet, anyway) but he has a talent for making music and being himself in a way that is at once refreshing and amusing. He makes you laugh and sing-a-long. while you secretly wish he could become your new shopping buddy. He's down-to-earth and approachable while still being absolutely fabulous.

That's my take anyway, and there's no denying his legion of fans feel the same. Scotty is loved and adored, and even supported, by a small army of Internet fans. That's a beautiful thing.

On the other end of the spectrum, however, things are not so beautiful; in fact, they are terrifyingly ugly. For as many people that respect Scotty's individuality and funky sense of fun, there are just as many that hate him, revolt against him, and, according to their posturing safely behind a computer screen, claim to want him dead.

Pshyeah.

Why the hate? One has to believe it's because Scotty chooses to be himself - in a world that still, even after all the advances we've made, believes boys shouldn't love fashion and hot pink stilettos, or enjoy singing about the woes of clumpy mascara. If said boy does choose such ideals to be a part of his personal sense of style, woe to him.

Seriously, when Scotty Vanity chose to step out and share himself with the world - style and all - he was belittled as much as he was lauded. You'd think he was the anti-Christ with the pack of hounds circling his profiles and calling for his crucifixion.

I want to take a moment to share with you some of the pure venom and hate, some of the horrible, negative, evil things people are saying to this sixteen year-old boy on his MySpace profile. It takes a real, big person to sit and spew vitriol behind a computer screen, don't you think? (God-awful spelling, grade-school grammar, and general massacring of the English language by these highly intelligent beings left as found)

God Damn ur such a Fucking fag, i fucking hate fag ass emo pussies. i wanna do girls not their fucking make-up. i fucking hate guys who look like girls what the fuck r u trying to be? a drag queen.? - Supreme Vampiric Evil {*}

Highly comical, isn't it? Someone calling themselves "Supreme Vampiric Evil" bitching about someone else being "emo". No critique of Scotty's video or music, notice - just a random rant about SVE's hate of "fag ass emo pussies".

umm...can i have the last 3 minutes of my life back?? really gay - Jill Unit

Jill's reason for not liking Scotty's music? It's "really gay". Whether Scotty is or isn't (he's sixteen - let's not go there), it's not a reason to dislike his music. It's fun - but apparently if you're snooty or have no sense of humor, it's just "gay" and, therefore, stupid. What a bigot.

wow your the BIGGEST fag i have ever seen you fucking fag...get a life wow suck a cock you fucking emo peice of shit - !~ChUcK~!

Interesting words coming from a man who puts little squiggly lines and doodads around his name, eh? You know what they say about those who "hate" something so intensely...

It's terrible, really. It's not that they aren't entitled to their opinions - as hateful as they may be - they are. But to write such horrible things to this young man, for no reason other than he's being himself...am I the only one upset by this?

fucking homo dont even come and put shit like this for society to veiw... - Wesley Gasper

Just...wow. This goes beyond not liking the music. This is hate, pure hate, for a group of people that they perceive Scotty to be a part of (gays, in this instance). It's hate for no other reason than fear and ignorance...but the venom with which it is brought forth is just sad.

woww you are the bigest homo ive ever seennn go have a parade or something, poop pusher - Mike.

I know, you can't take anyone with grammar that bad seriously. I just added this one for the laugh factor.

Ummm two things...... Get a job, and stop being a filthy degenerate. I see wierdos like you all day asking for change - Zach

Again, someone assuming - and then making all kinds of ridiculous, biased assumptions - because Scotty wears make-up and sings about dancing. So gay people (and again, I'm not saying Scotty Vanity is gay, but that is what these asshats are assuming) are "filthy degenerates" who become homeless beggars...wow. Who knew? Guess I better go tell all my gay friends they got it all wrong by being successful and providing for themselves!

Then there are the ones bringing his parents - and their either expected disapproval or their obvious bad parenting skills - into it...

i hope u kill urself or ur parents die from the pathetic excuss of a kid - Big Fuzzy-PANDA GOD OF PANDATOPIA

and

if i was ur dad i would cut your fuckin homo face off and feed it to the dogs. then i would leave you muther. - IF IT JAMS...FORCE IT

Charming. I have a feeling Scotty's parents are right proud of their son. At sixteen, he's not afraid to be himself and is already in the beginnings of a successful career. One wonders what the prodigies who left these bright comments are doing with themselves.

WTF is THIS! god did not want men to be this way you crazy confused ....... homo whyyyyyyyyyy yyyyyyyyyyyy yyy - Andrew™†

This kid has trademarked the cross, meaning, of course, that he knows what God intended for the world and what He doesn't like. Scary thought, isn't it?

This is far from all of the hate and cruelty spewed on Scotty's pages; it's just a sampling. Why even share it? Just to show that there is still a lot of work to be done in spreading love, tolerance, and acceptance in this world. Scotty Vanity should not be chastised because of who he is; it's just that simple. At the end of the day, he's more centered, happy, and confident in self than every one telling him he's "wrong", "going to burn in hell", and a "degenerate".

Scotty Vanity is daring to be himself in a world that prefers, and often demands, conformity. For that, I simply adore him - and also because I just can not get "I like your hair..." out of my head. As I said in my comment, "keep being fun, beautiful you, Scotty."

Pshyeah.

    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!

    I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that's both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    head prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!
