    Fandom Culture in 2016: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    Our own Tee is quoted in this article:

    "One of Carrie Underwood's biggest fan accounts, @NY4Carrie, sees the CareBears as having nothing but "pure and good" intentions when it comes to the proposed ownership mentality. She writes, "We get so passionately invested in wanting her to win and succeed that sometimes we forget that it is her career, not ours. We genuinely want nothing but the best for Carrie. I think we just sometimes have bigger dreams for Carrie than perhaps Carrie has for herself? I admit that I am guilty of that sometimes. Another example is in radio single choices that her team disagrees with or is unaware of, etc. As fans, I think we all wish we could have a bigger say in that."

    That's awesome! Way to go Tee! Did they take that from CF? Seems like an awfully long quote for Twitter, lol.

    Thanks, I finally went and read it, it was really long! Now I realize that they asked for those statements from different fans.

    The article's written by Jason Scott, who used to be a member here (his board name was gaycarebear). He's been promising an article on the "fandom" phenomenon for some time. Some of the respondents are people I follow. Vickye Fisher is a knowledgeable UK music fan, who used to run the "For the Country Record" blog. NYMirandaJunkE (JoJo) is a very active Roots fan - I thought her comment on Brandy Clark was particularly interesting.

    Its definitely cool to see all the different fan bases out there. I still think we are the best. And i think we handle everything quite well - i still see Taylor fans attacking Carrie on her videos.
