Just A Thought

Ok so, obviously that other comments thread is getting out of hand lol not that I care what ANYone who isn't directly in my life thinks, because I know how weird people on the internet are, and can be. So I know not to let any of that affect me, all the rumors and blah blah blah. That stuff is silly and very amusing to me. Sure I put my relationship "out there"... I guess. All I ever say is My girlfriend is the best and my girlfriend is awesome. I've never put a picture out or really gotten into our relationship and its dynamics, so if thats putting it out there, then... Ok cool fine lol 

 BUT! What I do have somewhat of a problem with, and where I do start to take offense is the notion, thought and idea of someone being given credit for getting me to where I am. I will not deny that Andrej did get me a lot of press after the photo shoot we did, and being friends with her has led me to meet certain people I wouldn't have met as soon as I did. But to say that my brand is what it is and where it is only after being friends with Andrej is really just... NOT true haha I was in a showroom before the photo shoot, I was in stores before the photo shoot, and I had a blog and brand following before the photo shoot. I mean my brand was on the right track even before I had ever met Andrej. It was the hard work of my mom, my team and myself that got me to where I am. I creative direct every shoot I do, I style about 90% of every lookbook that ADEEN has and I design 100% of anything ADEEN. When buyers come to the showroom in LA and e-mail us its all about our work and our product. Anyone can be given a spotlight, its what you do under that spotlight that will determine how far you go. 
 Oh and to the idiot that says being in pictures with Andrej at parties is like unlimited press and all that... what major blogs have any of those pictures been on? The only pictures those ever show up on are the fan blogs and those are the fans of Andrej... Not buyers and my customer base. Nothing against the Andrej fan blogs and saying anything negative about them, from what I've read they are very nice and supporting people of Andrej and I. Just saying, thats not real press for me and my brand. 
 But yeah thats all I wanted to say :) It doesn't even really bother me that much, because I know where I am and how I got there. The people who really matter know that as well. You silly internet weirdos can continue to have your opinions. Because at the end of the day if you aren't supporting me and my dream, then you don't really matter to me! Thanks for everyone who has been supporting me, I see it and I appreciate it, you really mean everything to me! Thanks!

I live in the UK and sure, I did hear about you and your brand ADEEN through Andrej, but I follow your blog and look out for new hat designs, accessories etc that you create because I really like your ideas and concepts! I love how your incorporate various themes from you childhood and turn them into something really cool and new.

One of my favourites is your Arale snap back.. though it'll take me quite a while to save up for it!

Anyway, I'm a big fan of your brand so.. I'll be looking forward to seeing any of your new designs :)

Much love for you and ADEEN :)

I found out about you because i am a fan of Andrej.So what? I also found out about many other great designers and hot models:) I support you and your brand. You have your own base of clients and people who are interested in your designs AND you also have all these fan girls of Andrej reading your blog who have nothing to do with ADEEN.
Keep doing your thing.

well, here are my 2 cents.. Im just some internet "weirdo" but dont forget that people on internet are basically the same than the ones you met in real life. That is, all kind of people, so dont generalize... I never called you an opportunist but what ticks me off is that you have basically done everything in the last 2 months in order for everyone to know who you dated. Unless people are totally dim, they obviously got the memo. At the cost of your gf private life maybe. Then, you play all offended when people start to get curious. Be consistent, man ! For all its worth, i followed you on twitter and tumblr before early april, still you seem to put anyone who happens to like your gf in the category "weirdo/stalker". Some people are well intentioned believe it or not, i cannot recall ever asking you or your gf anything related to your private life. And I am not the only one in this case, im sure. I like your gf a lot, its a unique and lovely little soul and if she wants her privacy, EVERYBODY should respect it. I have never seen so much prying on twitter and around than since you 2 started dating. And SHE was very careful not to talk about it. So you have obviously some blame in the matter. wish u the best despite everything. Kyl aka Mister Shinra.

Hey there, good times:)So much free relationship advice for you. All these people really think they can give advice on how you should be consistent not to hurt someone's feelings and how you shouldn't like boobs. Cray Cray

Most people are missing 1 key thing, how can those be from Andrej? andrej can't afford them kicks! Fuck is wrong with you? ;)

Dear Anon "2 cents" - you read my mind and said just about everything I have been thinking. Like previous posters, I discovered Remy through Andrej so yes, Andrey put you, Remy, in the spotlight and you should be grateful. Don't waste this opportunity. I think it's immaterial whether Remy and Andrej are dating because the rumors alone fuel public interest in Remy and his business and Remy fuels the rumors. I remember distinctly when it all started. Remy, you posted a picture of a king-size bed with Andrej's shoes next to it with a caption "OUR room at a hotel in LA." How did you expect people to interpret it? What was the purpose of that post? Andrej posted an angry post on Twitter today implying that his nasty fans are interfering in his private life. Did his fans post suggestive pictures? Nope, Remy, YOU did.

wow previous anon you take stalking to a new level! RJ,Erika and other friends of Andrej post his pictures all the time! You guys spend way too much time stalking Andrej and his friends. The fact that we are all here proves just that.But,Remy, can you blame us? Andrej is stunning!

All this negativity is putting me down man

You'r right. Remy did it. But he did the same thing ALWAYS. Posted much staff about his life.
Why do you thing if Andrej didn't do that it's right way.
You is missing that it's about TWO people, not only Andrej.

Lets go back to the original point of Remy's rant. How many of you out there think that Remy did it all by himself and that the current improvement in his fortunes has nothing to do with Andrej's support? I cannot comment since I didn't know anything about Remy two years ago, for example. My gut feeling is that whatever achievements Remy had on his own got magnified hundred-fold thanks to Andrej putting the spotlight on him.

Andrej fans are delusional as hell. Andrej is not even crazy famous. Models, unless you're Kate Moss, are only known by a small percentage of the population. You act like he's rolling with Jay Z. Rembrandt was dressing motherfuckers before he was hanging with Andrej. He made that point. I'll bet more than half of Adeen supporters don't even know who Andrej is. It's sort of supported by an entirely different demographic. Just stop already. Give it up.

it's funny how you say you don't care and it doesnt really affect you/matter to you blah blah blah.....but then heres a question.....why make this essay long blog post about it? if it REALLY didnt bother you, you'd ignore it completely.....

*inb4 "oh anon shut up, you dont know what your are talking about, blah blah blah"

You guys are sick in the head! GoonerNelly8, why are you always so mad? You can stop trolling now. We know it's you.

Is he gay?

GoonerNelly86 said...

Sorry I'm late to the party as I've just been hipped to this conversation. I'm GoonerNelly86 and I can assure you this is the first time I've ever posted on Remy's blog. I don't know why I'm being attacked here. I don't care about Remy and Andrej's relationship. Its not my business. So I have no reason to 'troll' Remy's blog. So yea, leave me out of whatever craziness going on here. I want no part of it.
