Oh I Miss Willam's Beatdown: The Shade Of It All
There used to be this webisode on a YouTube channel called The Stylish featuring the infamous contestant of Ru Paul's Drag Race Season 4, Willam Belli. Basically Willam used to breakdown and criticize Youtube videos that range from being vastly popular to unknown. Some of the Youtube videos featured popular make up artists like Michelle Phan, Gregory Gorgeous, Grav3yardgirl, JuicyStar07, and MacBarbie07. These people have gained a lot of popularity through doing simple makeup tutorials that are not as well done or as innovative as maybe a real makeup artists would do. I believe the point of the show is to basically throw shade at the rookie make up artists who have received more recognition than seasoned professionals. And Willam Belli has a sharp tongue and makes deceiving comments about these youtubers. In the end, he is hilarious and he points out that most of those people don't have real jobs and they are getting away with putting useless videos on the internet. Willam says what we think out loud. And after 19 webisodes, the show had been cancelled. Willam still continues to promote himself as a web personality on his own You Tube channel with his music videos and own tutorials. To be honest, his videos are far more interesting than some of these kids who find nothing better to do with themselves.
Whenever I am feeling down, I go on Youtube and watch his videos because he complains more than anyone I know and makes people look worse than himself. It's like bullying except your'e the innocent bystander.
Check out some of Willam's videos:
He's my Best Friend in my head. I love you, Willam!
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
I do custom garments for any occasion. Please email me at Designsbykika@gmail.com for any requests or inquiries.
