My Advice To CL. Stop Being Pretentious. Allkpop Article You can be an asshole. You can be ostentatious. You can be confidant. You can be humble. You can be crazy. You can be artistic. You can be a lot of things and people will love you for it. But nothing irks people more than pretentiousness. Only the most devoted find that appealing. To everyone else.... They roll their eyes or find it genuinely off-putting. It will overshadow all else you do in the perception of others if you present yourself and what you do in a pretentious light. They won't see. Won't hear it. Won't care about it. All they will see is your pretentious manner and how in their assessment you do not measure up to the height you so seek. So. CL. Drop the whole "representing Asians in America" and "opening doors in America" angle and just focus on being you and being successful for yourself and your fans. If you claim other motivations you will be taken to task for it and you'll alienate more than you would gain. Whether you succeed or not, only time will tell. Best of luck. Eman. Note: This is not a "bashing CL" thread. This is a thread offering my thoughts as to how I would advise her if I were her PR manager. I honestly hope she finds the success she seeks.
