You understand what I mean about the amount of time he spent discussing it, right? Him dropping one sentence about Vanessa is not comparable to dedicating well over half of the interview to a strip club.

Also note that much of what he says about V (since I know that is what you're saying) is prefaced by - but I don't want to say much about it - and followed by vagueness. And it doesn't diverge from the exact kinds of activities he has said many times (including during this promo) that he doesn't enjoy doing. I'm not saying (and this is an important note, because for some reason this keeps getting lost in translation) that strip clubs are something he doesn't enjoy; I'm saying that he has said he doesn't enjoy purposefully drawing notoriety for personal life things.

And this is where I find your point kind of a non-entity: him saying "Vanessa and I like movies, at which I eat Sour Patch" is far from notorious. None of that stuff is going to make it out of his interviews and into headlines. In fact, the only two V related headlines I've seen before this out of any of his interviews were a. that he doesn't want to get married asap and b. the "incredibly hot" thing. But neither was circulated anywhere near this extent. So, in terms of sheer PR, it doesn't compute.

Agreed. Him dropping a sentence here or there, when asked is completely, completely different than going into this long elaborate explanation like he did on JK.

And just to say it again, I'm also not judging him based on the strip club. I really don't care. I'm judging him because it was o.o.c as least as promo-Zac is concerned. Which is demonstrated by his response when he was asked the very same thing again this morning. He had a completely different attitude, demeanor, whatever.

And, I agree that we don't really truly know how he acts. And the JK version may be much closer to reality, and if so, that's fine. That's where the hypocrite part comes in. Be consistent. Don't sing a completely different tune.

One other thing, I want to be clear that I don't think this makes me a bad fan at all. I think it's okay to judge him every once in a while. He's not perfect, and we don't have to act like we love every single thing he says in order to be a true fan.

:) Absolutely. Blind faith doesn't help anyone.

ia. like i think we all want the best for him and believe the best of him. we only talk about this because we are concerned. it's ok if people don't agree... we are all ok people and fans and whatever.

You summed up my thoughts perfectly.
