You most likely know what’s going on with Paige Conway by now, but if you’re blind, confused, or don’t use your Twitter, here’s what’s going on.
Paige Conway (@paigeconway2 on Twitter) was featured on The Ellen Show as Justin Bieber’s Biggest Fan in February 2011. He surprised her in her bedroom, and then did an interview with her, erm, sitting on his lap. You can watch the interview here, if you haven’t already:
After this appearance, people started to act like Paige was famous. She gained thousands of followers on Twitter, and people said they were “inspired” by her. That in itself was just irritating. What in the world is inspiring about her? She had NOTHING to do with the surprise Justin gave her. She’s LUCKY, not INSPIRING. Let’s get that out there, first of all. What also annoyed me, is that she ate it up. She seemed to enjoy the “fame” and really used it to her advantage. She met tons of celebrities after Justin, including Cody Simpson, his sister, Alli, Nick Jonas, and Bella Thorne. (I’m guessing her family has a lot of money; just throwing that out there.) Now, let me get this straight – I was so happy for Paige, at first. I watched her surprise with Justin on TV, and thought that was really cool how she got to have that experience. I had no hate or jealousy towards her. (Okay, yes, I wish that was me who got surprised with flowers by Justin Bieber, but don’t we all?) But she got more and more stuck-up about it as time went on. Stalk her tweets; you can tell she enjoys the fame and attention from having met Justin. I shrugged it off, though. It’s not like she and Justin were suddenly BFF’s, right?
Well, they weren’t, and they’re still not, I don’t think… But she definitely does have connections. She MUST. Because whose wedding did Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez crash last night? Paige Conway’s cousin’s wedding. Yep. Rumor has it that Justin and Selena were on a date at the beach and heard some people singing Justin’s songs at a wedding. They rushed over to check it out. Here’s hers & Justin’s tweets about it:
A first-hand account from someone at the wedding, found here: http://brandonyano.tumblr.com/post/7722272954/i-went-to-a-wedding-last-night-in-malibu-that-got
And some pictures:
That’s the happiest I’ve seen Justin with a fan in a while, which kind of makes me think that Paige is more of a friend than a fan. Maybe she has more connections that we think? Or maybe Justin just REALLY likes her? (I’m thinking as a friend here people, nothing more. I’m not PLB, always accusing Justin of cheating. Ha. Plus, Selena was with him, so.) Also, I find it too random that Justin and Selena just decided to crash a wedding and it happened to be Paige’s. Paige MUST have been planning this, somehow. She probably has been in contact with Justin a lot more than we think she has. But, this is just proof that Justin was DEFINITELY at that wedding last night. Pictures, a firsthand account, and a tweet about it from Justin himself go beyond reasonable doubt.
So, normally, I wouldn’t be bitter about this. It’s cool that Justin took the time to go hang out with a fan even while he was with Selena (even though Paige has already met Justin….favoritism. But let’s save that for a different blog). But these next tweets from Paige are what really made me frustrated with this whole situtation, and probably why Paige Conway has been trending on Twitter for a whole day now:
Real nice, right? Paige was HATING on Justin back in January, and even said she was over him. She called him a liar and said she was “done with @justinbieber”. What most people don’t know is, Paige HAD met Justin before she was even on The Ellen Show. That was in February 2011; these tweets were in January 2011, and look at this one from December 2010 (the first time she met Justin), which is even more confusing:
What were they fighting about? Why does Paige constantly change her mind about whether or not she likes Justin? Does she enjoy the fame she gets from having “connections” with Justin? Probably. Maybe she honestly had a change of heart; I don’t know. It’s just so frustrating. Doesn’t it seem like the people who don’t deserve to get noticed are the ones who always do? (Cough -CABieberfans- cough.) I wonder if Paige’s good ol’ pal Justin Bieber has seen these tweets. Hmmm.
Moral of the story: BE GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCES YOU HAVE. If you’ve met Justin Bieber, even for five seconds, that’s five seconds longer than some people. Why would you trash talk someone who went to the trouble of going to your HOUSE and giving you FLOWERS? I don’t know what goes through some people’s heads. I’m not the type of person to hate on somebody over the internet, and I don’t hate Paige. But I do think that she should consider how some people would give everything to be in the position she’s in, and she’s taking it for granted. She doesn’t deserve the hate; nobody does. But she DID bring it upon herself.
What are your opinions on Paige? How deep do you think her connections go? Do you think she deserves all the hate and criticism? Leave a comment, please!
