Are you REALLY a fan???

  • Great job Angels! Well - great job to THOSE DEDICATED FEW that voted over & over & over again for our babe. Trey WON by almost 800 votes on Singersroom 30 under 30 poll.

    Now here comes the fussing. There is no reason why Trey won by only 800 votes. As a fan of both Trey and Lloyd, I know, just like you know that Lloyd does not have the amount of fans that Trey does. Lloyd has had poor management that kept him underrated. Nevertheless, this is not about Lloyd. Trey should have won by a landslide, but it really wasn't. Lloyd passed Trey many times.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why some fans sit back and say how wonderful Trey is but when it's time to put your hand where your mouth is, you're too lazy to pick up the phone to request a record, too lazy to vote for him, too lazy to support Angels With Heart...basically too lazy to do anything that does not directly benefit YOU. Are you in this ONLY to see what you can reap?

    I know I'm a fan that wants Trey to succeed in every avenue that he pursues. Giving of your money (buying his merchandise, albums, and concert tickets) is wonderful, but please don't forget the importance of giving of your time. Request his records, vote for his singles on 106 and Park, and vote when he is in any type of competition. Let's show him that we truly love him and support him.

    Thank you!

Trey received the AVERAGE amount of support that is given to almost any artist if you use the artist's number of TWITTER followers as a base figure for comparison of the artist's total votes. The artists that received an unusual high amount of support were Lloyd and Josh Xantus. I didn’t have Twitter figures for Josh, but it appears he did exceptionally well without having twitter (at that time). So if we agree Trey received the average amount of support given, then we did not fail him as many would think. We did our job, BUT we still need to go harder because of fan bases that are not acting average for a particular reason. Maybe it is because Lloyd and Josh are both releasing and promoting new music. I don’t know. One thing we all learned is not to be complacent esp. if Trey is ahead. Also if Trey requested fan support directly, maybe he would have obtained more votes. I never heard of Josh so it amazes me how he got so much support, but I notice he is new and his music is good. Most of the other artists only received an average support just like Trey, and in order to compete, they would have to enlarge and/or mobilize their fan bases. So my conclusion is both Lloyd and Josh are winners too in terms of SUPPORT. What this means to Trey Fans is that we have to go extra hard at all times whether Trey has new material out or not. If we don’t, Trey will only continue to work himself into Kingdom Come as we all know.

Note correction: Trey won by 860 votes almost 900 instead of only 800.

This is a rough analysis. I am not a mathematician or statistical analyst and I only included a sample of artists I thought most relevant.

PREACH!!

I agree. We only want the best for him.

@KG.Sunshine - "I guess encouraging people, instead of chastising, is a more proactive approach." I am a very uplifting and positive person - that's in my nature, but it was very frustrating to constantly tweet and encourage Angels and fans to vote. If you did everything you know you could do, why do you feel as though you are being chastised? My post was for those who KNOW they could've done more and CHOSE not to. If you did all you can, then be proud of that. I don't have a superiority-complex; I love Trey - it's as simple as that. I definitely don't feel more special than another Angel. I want him to gain everything he should in this industry.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Right the reminders do help. I'll keep bringing the AMA post to the top as much as possible.

kg.sunshine's picture

LOL @ JIMS - I completely agree. I remember I didn't even notice the AMA thing until I came on here. Sometimes everyone just needs a reminder. When I have 50,000 things on my mind, something definitely loses out. So I'm glad to have seen a reminder.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@kg.sunshine: It was no joke not have my wings. LOL I'm glad you got your wings back.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@kg.sunshine:

LOL Thanks! I just meant that if he didn’t like his newer fans I would be out of luck.

I agree there are some superiority complexes going around. I apologize if I came across as superior to anyone here because that wasn’t my intention. I truly like Trey as an artists and my desire to see him win that award was so strong that it became so disappointing to see him have low numbers and at times fall behind in the race. You are correct we should be about encouraging and not chastising. I truly understand that some people have limited access to a computer with internet service or just have more important responsibilities but all I ask is can you at least vote for the brother once?

kg.sunshine's picture

@GimmeUsual & @JIMS- my wings were also clipped for a few weeks as well, but I'm happy to be conversing again with you ladies. :)

kg.sunshine's picture

:) @ JIMS – why do you say he wouldn’t like you if he distinguished? I completely disagree w/ whatever rationale you'll come with - you're dedicated & positive.

@Numba – I understand. I sometimes just get a whiff of superiority from some people and posts, which seem a tad bit negative. That’s not a diss against @GimmeUnusual. I guess encouraging people, instead of chastising, is a more proactive approach. I think what I was trying to get across is that everyone has different circumstances. Hell, some ppl only get a certain amount of time on the net b/c they are at a library. Or ppl are going through some really tough times that they mean well, but contests get lost in the shuffle of trying to find a place to live. Also, I just wanted to say that Trey has some amazing fans & to not be discouraged b/c other artists fans vote a million times a day. We have to realize that most of their fan base are children that don’t have responsibilities.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Exactly!!!@Numba1Hon

@KG.Sunshine The number of times you voted is what is important because the poll allowed fans to vote every day. If a fan only voted once and had the ability to vote much more, than that fan was not providing the amount of support that was necessary to win comfortably. We were struggling to get him a win. As Angels and supposedly his most avid fans, we wanted him to win very badly. In a way, this contest was for us. I don't think anybody said one fan is more important than the other. I think this post points out that some fans are not supporting him like they should or could, and we are pleading with fans to show more support when and if they can.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@kg.sunshine

I don’t think we are saying that a fan is more important because they are voting a 100 times or more. To me you are important whether you voted one time or a 100 times. The thing we are saying is contest/awards like this are determined by how many times you vote for a specific person. Considering singersroom gave us the opportunity to vote daily it increases the chances of the person you like to win.

I know Trey doesn’t distinguish between his fans. Thank God for that because if he did he sure wouldn’t like me. Sadly with contests/awards like 30 under 30 they are about quantity. I’m not very trusting of polls either, but I just keep the faith and do what I have to do. Honestly, if you look at it there are people that don’t think Trey should have been nominated. Though going to concerts, purchasing music, requesting music all are beneficial to the success of an artists but receiving awards are helpful too.

kg.sunshine's picture

First, I’ll say that I voted. I always do. However, why is a fan that voted 100 times more important than the one that voted once? I get what y’all are saying about it showing support, but Trey doesn’t distinguish – he supports the fans that started w/ him yesterday & the ones from back in the day; the fan that bought one cd and the one that bought all of them. It’s quality that counts, not quantity. To be honest, I don’t trust polls and electronic voting, but I do it anyway. But some ppl distrust & dislike award shows. The most deserving ppl never receive their just due by the entertainment community. It comes from us showing support by actually patronizing an artist’s work – i.e. concerts, PAYING for downloaded music, requesting records, etc.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

I'm glad you got your A back. LOL I didn't realize I corrected the spelling.

For the AMAs he didn't post anything about the awards on Twitter but he did post something about it on FB.

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

JIMS - I had already emailed them last night & they fixed it this morning. Glad my "A" is back. And its so funny you corrected my typo "ball-headed" - after I sent it I said, "I misspelled "bald", but I didn't feel like going back in to correct because I was on my phone & it's much more complicated. LOL

@Tee - I tweeted about Singersroom & Trey's Angels retweeted me. They also posted it on TS.com. I think Trey has his team believing that his fans should do it on their own. I can't tell you what is running through Trey's had when it comes to competitions but I do believe he wants to win it because his fans believe he deserves it and nominates him, not because he pleaded and begged for the votes. That's just my take but we won't know unless Trey says why he doesn't request for us to vote.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Yes did an excellent job. :)

I didn't know they bothered his mom too. That is so tacky.

Going hard for Trey doesn't mean going crazy for him. People really need to fall back with that nutty behavior.

TEETIMME's picture

@Numba1Hon I dont know if the proxy votes blocked other votes, but Singerooms said those votes wudnt be counted. Makes me think MOST of Lloyd's votes may have been proxy??? But according to the numbers u posted he didnt win by much. Most ppl think if they cant get something out of what they do they wont do it at all! Sad, yes I know!

And I had no idea that u cud send out a mass message on twitter! SOunds complicated bc u have to download another program to do it. If Trey wanted to get the message out he wud have tweeted it, which I dont remember him doing, nor TreysAngels. So those that participated did an EXCELLENT job! *pats self on back* :)

@GimmeUnusual I do wish more wud participate!

@JIS IT made me very upset how they were treating them & his Mother! I was like "Wow, thought we were better than that!" :(

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Tricia: Many of us went without our Angel wings a few weeks ago. A scary situation. Just contact Trey's Angels membership and they should be able to clear things up for you.

I don't want you feeling like the bald headed step child.

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

I'm so sad. My membership got screwed up. My Angel logo is missing (despite my membership automatically renewing). I feel like a ball-headed step child missing my freakin "A"...not to mention that I can't read ANY of the Treys' Angels discussions. *CRIES hysterically*

CutTiGurl609's picture

lol @ mrs songz I'm innocent I tell ya! Innocent!!!! lmbo......... but I've hugged Trey and they are very tight, real hugs. Its like they say all the things he thinks about his fans like "Thank you! I care for you! I appreciate you! I love you so much you just don't know!!! lol and if you have the honor of doing a meet and greet with him when he has a lot of time and there isn't too many people, he may spend a little time wit each person and spark up conversation all the while holding your hand or hugging you close :D I hope you get that opportunity
