Disappointed in Trey

  • Disappointed in Trey
    March 13, 2012

    I can honestly say that I have always been extremely proud of Trey Songz but yesterday he truly and deeply hurt me.

    He took a DM that someone sent to him about how upset they were about not getting acknowledged after the poster they made for him, and he tweeted it out and included "#Entitlement" to that tweet. I did not send him that DM...I repeat...I DID NOT SEND HIM THAT DM; however, I know the person who did. She is an extremely sweet person, and she goes soooooo hard for Trey. She was in tears all day after Trey outted her and then unfollowed her. On top of that, she was receiving nasty tweets from it.

    I DM'd Trey to tell him that she didn't mean any harm, that she loves him, that we all do, and to please give her another chance. I guess Trey didn't appreciate me DM'ing him about her - guess he was really pissed at her, so he unfollowed me too.

    Now I know it's just a follow - it doesn't pay my bills on anything like that, but it was special. It meant a lot to me. The fact that I was the 800 & something person that he followed back in 2010 was extremely special. I was in his top 1000 people that he followed. Additionally, I worked hard for that follow. I stood from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in stillettos getting emails from people so we can send them emails to become a Trey's Angel. I can never get that back...soley because I wanted to help another Angel.

    I went from being hurt to angry with Trey. Angry because he didn't DM me back and say, "Stay out of it." Instead he just unfollowed me...with no explanation. The other thing that bothered me is that this was a fan that was upset about something, rather he agreed or not, she was still a fan...rocking w/ him since 2005 and taking the time to create a poster for him. She loved him and he made her cry all day on her birthday. He should've DM'd her about it...not put it on Twitter to have other Angels attacking her. Then to not be receptive to criticism (which is what she supplied in her DM) was just wrong. If you can't take criticism from the ones who love you...who can you take it from? Then to unfollow me...an Angel with a HEART...was so disappointing. I solely wanted to help another Angel & let him know she meant no harm. Why was my punishment an unfollow that I worked so hard for. I don't understand and I am extremely hurt by Trey. I am still a fan, I will always be and I convinced her to forgive him as well. I'm in the situation so it's a lot more sensitive to me...maybe I'm wrong. What do you think?

As for what I said about his fans being expendabe to him, I don't thhink that we should be. I'm not talking about those who don't give a damn whether Trey is on top or not. I was talking about those who do care, Angels or non Angels. No celebrity can say that the people who love and support them and go hard for them are expendable. Let the haters be expendable. And just because you disagree with someone you love, it doesn't mean you're a hater.
I can say that I don't like what Trey did, and I still love him the same. I just don't want to feel like I have to walk on egg shells for him just because he's a celebrity and I'm his fan. If he ever follows me on twitter, I don't want him to unfollow me just because I may say somethhing to him that he doesn't like. He doesn't apologize for his actions, so he should be able to take it when someone else is just expressing themselves in a non threatening way.

@Tricia Thank you, because all I have been saying is what you said - he made you feel special by following you, then he hurt you by unollowing you. Whatever his reasons were, they were his, but I still don't understand them. I probably never will, but you forgive him, and that's what's important because it happened to you. I still admire you for that. I hope that I'm able to forgive him if he ever does something that hurts me personally.
I really do love Trey and I respect him. I can see how he loves his fans and he appreciates them, but that's why I got so confused and I expressed my opinions about this subject. Because he is who he is and he knows he has so much power, I don't think it's right to say something or do something to sweep you off of your feet, then because you make the mistake of being yourself around him, you have to pay with such dire consequences.
To everyone who thinks that I was saying mean or negative things about Trey, I'm sorry you feel that way. I just don't want to start looking at him like he's the type of person who switches up on you, depending on his mood. I'm sensitive and I tend to back away from people who throw shade my way. Others have the right to be who they are, but I don't have to stand around and take their shit.
As for him being a celebrity, he started all the "letting us into his world" stuff. he spoiled us to a point and we want what he's been giving us. I understand he's only human, but as a fellow human, he should understand that our mistakes should be forgiven too.
Oh and I never said that only his Angels are his true fans. I mentioned the word fans more times than I said Angels because I was referring to EVERYBODY who enjoys Trey, whether it's for his music, looks or whatever. BUT, he did give the impression that we - the ANGELS - are supposed to be a little bit more special. All I was saying is that he shouldn't have unfollowed an Angel, especially since she wasn't being malicious toward him.

As far as Trey being a grown man and free to follow & unfollow whoever he wants, that's a mute point...we all know that. We all know he is able to do whatever he wants *starts singing Bobby Brown's it's my prerogative...I can do what I wanna do...* LOL But even though he can...doesn't mean he always should. Unfollowing fans for something which in essence is extremely small (upset about not being acknowledged) is not something that should happen; however, it is very forgivable. I am truly much better than I was when I originally posted this thread. With time the sting becomes almost unnoticeable. She is in a better place as well. I know Trey does his very best and crap just happens. This is a, "shit just happens" type of thing.

Thanks SexySagLuvSongz my fellow Sag sis!!! I am doing absolutely fine. My HEALTHY love for Trey is unconditional. And I emphasize healthy because someone mentioned loving Trey to death. Anyone that really knows me know that my hubby 24/7 is Lance Gross. That is the man of my millennium...me love him! I love and support Trey for his music...understanding that he is human and things are bound to irritate him to the point that he makes choices that not everyone agrees with.

At no time was I ever defending her DM. I equally thought it was wrong and demanded too much of him. But knowing her - I know her heart, which is why all I said to him was that she meant no harm. She loves you, we all do. Please give her another chance. That was my DM to him. I don't see that as a reason to unfollow but that is my opinion as my Sis @PrittBrowniiz has said. We are all entitled to our own opinions. In my opinion the unfollow of me was too harsh. Him unfollowing her is another story. He may feel justified...I can't fault him for that. She hurt his feelings. I get that, but I still believe he could have handled it better.

@Essence I'm not offended by anything you have said and I certainly want you to feel free to express whatever you are feeling. I certainly agree with you, but I do feel as though Trey values us as fans. I just think his anger got the best of him which is why I would love to talk to him more about it. I want him to personally know from me that I know he goes above & beyond for his fans and to know that I appreciate what he does.

Many ppl have been saying that fans have high demands...yes, the lady who DM'd him had too high of demands for him. Some do, but not all. Some of us realize he is only one man and we appreciate what he does. Its just like those that keep telling Trey to UStream...the man needs a break. So many of us are guilty for wanting a lot of him. It's natural but Trey knows how to say NO...he does, and he will.
