I'm not trying to sound confrontational with this, I honestly want to know because tbh the reaction to this has boggled my mind. Like... to me it just seems like what he's been saying, which is that he's going to live his life, that's what he's been trying to do, find the balance between life and career. I don't know, I really don't see him thinking he's above it all or being stupid, it just seems like he doesn't want to let his career get in the way of him experiencing things. Could the timing have been better, absolutely, but it seems like one of those things where he just saw the opportunity and said you know what? I never see Corbin, we're celebrating, let's do it. If that makes sense.

ia that he is going to live his life and that's fine. i'm not opposed to that. and i'm not trying to judge the things he does privately. ofc i have feelings about some things but yk i mean, whatever at some point we all have to accept... his life, his choices and we can't impose certain ideas on him. or if we do, we have to be open to the fact that we may be wrong. i am judging how he and his team are having him represented publicly especially when in the past they have been (minus a few makeup disasters) pretty savvy about representing him.

the conflict for me is that in this round of interviews i feel like he has become more vocal about how he is smarter than his peers and whatever about partying in private. so for him to completely contradict that (and most previous behavioral patterns) at a moment when there is the highest amount of attention on him just seems odd and dumb. and i don't get it. so i'm struggling to understand and i guess talking it out is one way to do it.

fine if he wants to do this whenever, i am not judging him for anything related directly to his private behavior because i really could care less about it... he has to live his life and do his thing, i totally get that. but maybe he shouldn't say things like he's smarter about this stuff than other people, etc. that's the part where if he contradicts himself enough people i think would get tired of it and think he's acting full of himself, etc.

to me, this is only one example recently where what he's saying and what he's doing ends up being contradictory and idk, it kind of grates because what he's doing is perfectly fine in and of itself... he's just being him. like i guess i don't get why they are trying so hard to represent him as one thing when what he is, from every indication we have, is better and cooler than that?
