Quotes[edit | edit source]

"So, here's whats been on my chest:

I don't feel like I have my own name as an individual anymore. I have been noticing this for a while, but especially within the past two/three months. I felt that my individuality of me being "Christina Marie" or "BeautyChickee" is an image that has been overlooked... due to my relationship.

I feel that I have only been classified as "Corbyn's Girlfriend" lately as if that is the only thing that makes me the person I am. What I mean by this, is that people don't realize that there is more to me than just being a musicians girlfriend. I am a YouTuber (I have been since 2011), I create weekly videos about fashion and beauty, I am a face on social media as my own person.

I haven't seen anyone classifying him as only "chirstina's boyfriend." its always just been the other way around. And if he isn't being classified as only my boyfriend, and is classified as his own individual person (which he completely should be), then I don't see why I only have to be classified as "corbyn's girlfriend instead of my own individual person.

I feel that all the hard work I put into my social media and into my YouTube channel and videos is being neglected due to this. For example, when I do younow broadcasts, the only thing I've seen is people wanting me to call corbyn, FaceTime corbyn, guest corbyn, text corbyn, tell corbyn this, tell corbyn that, etc. etc.

I broadcast on younow because it is one of the best forms of social media connection with my chickees that is fast and efficient. I go live to talk about all sorts of things, and yes I do talk about my relationship sometimes which is completely fine! However, when I go live, and the only thing i see in the comments is about wanting to talk to my boyfriend over me, it hurts me a bit. It makes me feel as if my boyfriend is the only reason people are watching me, so they can try to get a closer look into his life, and that people aren't watching me for actually wanting to watch me talk about other topics or teach how to do a certain makeup look.

I built the image that I am today and that lots of people still do recognize me as; beautychickee. But all the time I spent growing and building myself on YouTube and social platforms, just in the end to be known more as a girlfriend than my own image, is upsetting to me :/

My intentions of writing this post and discussing this issue is not to bash on my own boyfriend or our relationship, it is not to call anybody out on anything, but more just something I feel should be informed to you chickees, since I love you all very much, and if there is something like this that happens to be a bug on my shoulder, I feel a need to share it.

I don't want anybody to get the wrong idea of maybe I am saying this because I don't love my boyfriend as much as I claim to, or maybe Id rather hide our relationship from the public, or maybe even that I am not proud to be his girlfriend. I am here to inform you that all those are completely false.

I love my boyfriend with all my heart, he means the absolute world to me. I share our relationship with you all on my social media because, hey, what girl doesn't love showing their relationship off? lastly, I am BEYOND proud to be his girlfriend, and I truly mean that. I already spoke to him about the issue last night, and he was not offended at all (as I didn't believe he would be) and was extremely understanding and knew exactly where I was coming from, and agrees with my views on things.

Long story short, I am proudly Corbyn's girlfriend (of course), but I am also my own person, and I like to be seen as my own person. I am Christina Marie, I am BeautyChickee. And I thank you guys for taking the time to read this entire thing (if you even made it to the end). I love you all so much, thank you![8]
