Somehow, I'm not surprised

Honestly, staying with YG was probably her biggest mistake, all of 2NE1 should have fled.
She could even go the Hyolyn way and set up a one woman agency, she'd make money with intl fans alone and I'm pretty sure a huge part of the korean audience would back her up too

YG doesn't care about female artists, he proved that time and time again, time to pack your designer clothes and leave CL

i think YG gave CL every reason to believe that he would support her, she was his golden child after GD let's not forget. apparently this support was conditional on his control, which is something that CL discovered waaaaaaay too late.

given YG's general predatory, egotistical, narcissistic tendencies i'm sure he told himself CL wasnt worth shit without him. and while i dont like scooter he would've done wonders for her career--- of course YG West wasn't gonna let that happen.

it would be nice to see a mariah (or even namie amuro) level comeback for CL but lbr, YG is SM levels of petty and too far up his own ass to back down.

Did he really though?
No matter what he might have sold to her behind the scenes, the signs were there all along, between YG calling her ugly every chance he got, never giving 2NE1 the time a day (2NE1 wasn't even his project, it was Teddy's)... the way he treated Lee Hi and Gummy. How could she possible believe anything coming out of his mouth?

SM's petty alright but JYJ and Jessica still have a career and make tones of money
Something's fishy

what's fishy? YG is egotistical trash who doesnt have anywhere close the coin or artist roster of SM. he's like the trump of kpop, i bet CL asking for autonomy was the equivalent of high treason in his eyes. the LEAST surprising thing is him trying to destroy her.

and lbr CL got the absolute most out of 2NE1, before and after their debut. YG called minzy ugly too, but CL was the one who got those solos. given the sliding scale of "good treatment" from YG, CL never had it as bad as lee hi or gummy during the height of her career.

which is setting the bar mighty low but for all intents and purposes, YG treated her well by comparison. i can totally see her peeping what's happening around her and thinking "but it's different for me" and i cant say i'd think any differently if i were in her shoes.

so to your point, i think CL knew YG was trash but did she think his lack of sanity would lead to the sinking of her whole entire career??? i doubt it.

Then I'm sorry but that would make her one if the stupidest person in the whole industry, and I don't think she is

So the two options are:
A. CL is a blind idiot
B. Something we don't know

might be a little bit of both *sighs*

i agree that there is something happening that we dont kno about but what do you think that "something" is? have there been rumors??

I logged back in just to compliment your eloquence. So beautifully put 😭😭😭

What I understand from this is that he never really managed her at all, as YG never let him 'have control'. idek what YG wants with her at this point, let her gooooooooo it's been five years!

Start a fire in the dungeon and burn that YGe building down CL!
Like why is the Baddest Female still tolerating this disrespect? She could've started her own agency by now (like Hyolyn) and have debuted in the US on her own terms (like Tiffany).

YG really sucked the life outta CL's career, even if she leaves YG now, all the hype and interest around her have died and people just feel tired of being played.

Doesn't help that instead of empathizing with fans she told them to be patient (after being patient for years, lol). OTL

such an absolute waste of CL's time and potential

At least she gets to leave that dumpster fire.

Sounds about right for YG
jillyjellly 8th-Nov-2018 07:54 am (UTC)
so, what now for her?

i feel bad for her bc old fans are tired, new fans are all about bp

we been knew

YG promised both dara and CL a 2NE1 comeback to make them resign, but in the end it never happened, he disbanded the whole group instead. now they're stuck until their contracts expire again.
pseudo_shigure 8th-Nov-2018 02:54 pm (UTC)
yep. idk why ppl are still confuse why she's staying. they lied to her, she said that clearly in that show she did few months back

Ugh I’m so frustrated for her
