    Hey Angels,

    There has been some things that have been weighing on my heart for some time now when it comes to our beloved Trey Songz. I've been rocking with Trey since Student Center on BET and the issue regarding being a groupie didnt come up until, the Social Media Campaign took off. I have had multiple people unfollow me on twitter and people direct message me regarding my post, saying that I  sound like a groupie. To be honest with you, when did promoting an album, or posting links about voting for an artist video become groupieish? Is it just me, or do other angels get response or feedback like this from friends as well? I admit that I'm on treysongz.com everyday, I play the cd's everyday, and post items on facebook and twitter everyday from the Social Media Campaigm. Does this make you or I a groupie? I want your feedback.

Well I haven't been called a groupie or anything like that (of course everybody i'm friends with from those sites actually know me personally) but I have discussed this with my cousin.

I think a groupie is someone that follows stars with the intent to just sleep with them, whether they know there music or are really fans of that star. They are really looking for ways to build there own status. Also with groupies its not just one star, its whoever they can get they hands on.

From what u said u are a fan. Like me we take time to support Trey in anyway we can whether we've met him personally or not. Don't think about the haters, their just judgemental and chances are they're the ones with the groupie tendancies. lol

i know how you feel my friend stopped talkin to me b/c she said i was acting like a groupie in the end i think she was just jealous tht i was passionate about somethin tht didnt revolve around her and her whack ass bf lets jus say we're not friends anymore but other ppl just say tht i'm a hardcore fan and its good tht someone can make me this passionate about them. But regardless of tht I LOVE TREY SONGZ and anything i love i go hard for whether its trey or my baby sister...

ps most ofthe ppl who call us groupies r really haters who wish they had something they loved this much

xoxo
TREYS ANGEL 4EVER!!!!!!!!!

Girl please...my friends think I am TWO kinds of crazy for goin hard for Trey like I do! But, I tell you one thing, it's because of me that they all bought the PPP album and they are sweating it right about now! Like I wrote on my Twitter profile....What other people think about me is none of my damn business!!! I am a Trey's Angel for life, and whoever don't like it can simply UNFOLLOW or DELETE! Trey said he made this fan club for his die hard fans, the ones that do exactly as you're doing...could you really call yourself his Angel if you behaved otherwise?

its so bad sad but true, i mean even my family and baby father says am a groupie and that when it comes to trey i dont have any controll ugh they just need to leaves us alone. i mean i feel like we are just fans ( no ANGELS) that love trey and support his music. its to the point that i dont even say anything about trey around my family i cant even enjoy his music or video's around my family any more ugh its crazy but i love trey and i will keep rocking with trey because i am a angel and u do the same luv they can call us wht they want trey knows wht wew are we are HIS ANGELS thats all that matters

No... you're not a groupie.. It's called word of mouth.. When people like something they tell someone about it, whether it's music or a new product..etc.. I bet the same people calling
you a groupie listen to Trey's music more than you do.. And I know this because Trey is the TRUTH (in my Fantasia singing voice)

But, it's funny how the media perceives the fan's love for an artist. And it seems to vary from artist to artist... I think the media portrays Trey supporters as "groupies" because Tremaine is so handsome. The bloggers/media write all their stories as if all Trey has going for himself is his looks and body... WHICH MAKES ME SICK. And the only reason females like him is because they want to sleep with him.. Honestly, I wish the bloggers would lay off, especially the urban media.. And let us have our AMERICAN IDOL.. Stop hating on Gods blessings to another.. Give him is props as a very talented business man and musician..

And my closing argument: Who else is doing ishh like this for their fans? NAME ONE.. You can't.. Trust.. we've all seen a lot of websites and blogs AND not one other artist is giving to their fans like Trey has and continues to do... And.. Trey's Blog Seefurtherthaniam.. OMG.. has helped me look at relationships in a different point of view.. I've actually learned a lot from Tremaine and I will always support him.. Just like Trey told one reporter "I'm winning right now.. GO CRITIQUE THAT" So.. if you like doing what you're doing for Trey.. Keep doing you..

I agree angels and I have said this to my followers on twitter too. We definitely need to take a stand as Angels!!

Your definitely not a groupie honey. Just a true fan. Groupies throw themselves out there tryna get attention an will give their goodies up to a nigga soon they meet them in person. They fail to realize that if u throwing it to a nigga they gon take it. Once thats over they toss u to the side and move on to the next city. Females need to have respect for themselves. But as long as you know who u are inside screw what people say or think about you.

Your not a groupie. Your a loyal fan. A groupie hangs out in the back of the arena with a hole in a condom ready to get it in with this man and have his baby for the child support check. Your a fan...so pay them people NO ATTENTION.

No. This definitely DOES NOT make you or me a groupie. Why tell him that we support him if we aren't gonna show him that we do? I've been called a Trey Songz groupie soo many times that it's ridiculous lmao. He's all over my Facebook & Twitter profiles. It's been that way for a while. My ex boyfriend used to get soo jealous. It was hilarious. He never referred to Trey as Trey Songz, he always called him "that nigga" LOL! It was funny but anyways, that didn't stop me. As Trey says, "Hate will get you nowhere." I have blocked & reported people as spam and cussed people out for telling me to stop posting things about Trey. It all comes with being a loyal fan of his and I wouldn't trade it for anything =) .

I believe that being a groupie is involving yourself sexually with a artist or someone who is in the artist's entourage to get close to the artist. There is nothing wrong with posting links and listening to the cds..because obviously your a passionate fan. Some people are just haters and thats what it is my fellow angel.

Simple and staright to the point @ JesusIsMySavior i agree

I have been pegged a groupie for the same reasons. I started listening to Trey's music when I was having problems in my life and he has some songs that really pulled me through. And I have been going hard for Trey every since. Do you and let people hate. A groupie is someone who do favors for a star to get status with them. I know your are not but if you were a groupie that is choise . I will forever be a fan of Treys Songz

JesusIsMySavior's picture

From what you are saying you aren't a groupie. I wouldn't concern myself with what others think.

I've read all the comments and of course your post and let me tell you this...I am a 42 year old, married, mother of 2. I am a huge supporter of Trey Songz and have been since 2005. Does that make me a groupie..HELL NO! I also look at the website daily and play his music non stop. I think if you truly believe in someone and what they stand for then you want to share that with everyone. I talk constantly about Trey and how I think he is one of the best R&B singers we have out there right now. I get the other type of comments...why you listening to someone so young, you're too old for that music, etc. I call BULLSHIT! Don't let the haters out there discourage you...Karma is a fickle bitch and you my dear will reap the good benefits from her by doing what you do...going all out for Mr. Tremaine Neverson a.k.a Trey Songz! When the haters come at you, just remember, there are a whole lot of us Angels out there who have your back!

@ Angel87...you know it's sad when people can appreciate someone's passion for someone or something else. My friends have called me a stalker, groupie, & told me I need counseling. I ignore them. I have never went this hard for ANYONE. The only other artist that I loved as much as Trey was Michael Jackson; however, no one called me a groupie when it came to him. See...that's why we just need to get rid of all our friends & just befriend each other. They just don't understand!!! LMAO

Bre'AunaShanti's picture

No it does not however ppl can be so close minded sometimes. My friends ride me all the time for goin hard for Trey but I could care less. I mean he go hard for us so y not return the favor?? I try not to sweat it but it really irritates me. So don't sweat it girl cuz I think we all catch heat for our dedication but we know what we are and y we do what we do so forget whoeva got a problem with it.

No I dont think youre a groupie! youre a fan! Just as any of us are! its a shame when people try to put you down over something that you obviously enjoy or what you like but if it was vice versa you cant tell them anything. Keep supporting Trey! Hes doing great things & its only gonna get better for him as he continues to fly high! :)

Ariel @COOGIdown's picture

the difference between a groupie and a fan:
Fan: supports the artist. a fan plays his music, buys their CD, tells their friends of this artist, attends their concerts and/or M&G's... things like that. In summary... a fan doesnt want to reap any benefits from the artist.
Groupie: WANTS something FROM the artist. whether it be sex, money, fame, a shout out... etc. a groupie is only a "fan" for their own benefit.

I hate when people say dat bullshit! If ur a real fan of ANYTHING an artist, model, sports team, etc ur gonna support whateva or whoever it is! So do you girl! Ur a fan/supporter! Not a groupie! Love u Trey!

Linz84's picture

I don't consider you as a groupie! I think your a real fan who is supporting Trey. I thought a groupie is someone who do everything in their power to sleep with a certain celebrity?? Wow at people unfollowing you!! It's not that serious for people to send you DM on twitter calling you a groupie. Some people are really stupid!

There is nothing groupieish about supporting Trey Songz. We believe in him so we support him. If people don't like it deuces & keep it moving.
