Deb, ‘Music With Haters Is Worth Keeping’

debby-guitar


Debby Ryan Myspace blog: Have you ever met someone who wanted so badly to be like someone else? If it’s not organic to them, it doesn’t work. Maybe you’ve seen someone who tries really hard to be different. They don’t listen to who they actually are; they just want to be different.

Conforming to nonconformity is equal conformity; don’t mess with any of it. Music is the same way. Artists that TRY to be mainstream are called ‘rip-offs’. Artists that TRY super hard to be different are ‘posers’. No matter how eccentric or nonsensical or mainstream a piece of music is, there’s always going to be someone who likes it and someone who hates it.

All we can do is genuinely create an audible manifestation of our souls. Know yourself, know the music in your soul and then put it together out loud, lyrics, instruments, tempo, in the combination that feels like it matches it most honestly. That’s my definition of good music.

‘Honey’ -The Hush Sound, ‘Pump It Up’ -Elvis Costello, ‘At Least I’m Not As Sad’ -Fun, ‘On The Radio’ -Regina Spektor, ‘Cousins’ -Vampire Weekend, ‘O’ Sailor’ -Fiona Apple

    This may shock you, but some people are actually good at writing and don’t have to copy/paste to make sense.

    Stop what? She makes WAAAAY more sense than any of the other Disney stars.

  • Jessie//

    I think what she said was very wise actually

  • Anonyymous

    Agreed! She’s trying waaaaay too hard to like, stand out or something? Why do I have a feeling this girl is lecturing us?

  • Cheers

    Does anyone else think that she really should have began the blog entry with “Dearest Diary” and ended with “love the uber-perfect Debbs”. Maybe then it wouldn’t seem so stupid; I’d just think someone hacked her diary or something. And yeah she defineately was trying to sound smart(emphasis on trying). Also take your own advice hun, STOP TRYING SO HARD!

  • Anonymous

    she cant even sing that good so why is she talking like shes something she aint. debby stop. your just embarrasing yourself.

  • Jess

    So now everyone can sing??
    I mean, I love Selena and all, & I also love her song I won’t apologize, but to be honest, some ppl can sing it better than her, cuz they’re genuinely good. Miley, no comment, her dad’s a singer so it’s pretty obvious that’s what she’s gonna be; Demi, I thought she can really sing but after listening to her live, I kinda changed my mind a bit; Selena, nothing else to say, singing is not for her; Emily, I know she can sing but it’s hard to compare her with Jordan Pruitt or Pixie, there’s a huge different between their vocals; Mitchel Musso or something, I don’t even know why, I thought guys wouldn’t do those kinds of stuff to get attention. All in all, I just wanna say that Disney stars can sing, but they can never be truly amazing singers / artists.

  • Jess

    I forgot to say, & plz don’t feel offended by this but I hate Debby already, god plz don’t make me hate her even more!!! Here’s a piece of advice for you: stick to your acting classes & stay away from the studio Debby!!! Plz!!!!

    “No matter how eccentric or nonsensical or mainstream a piece of music is, there’s always going to be someone who likes it and someone who hates it. ”

    ain’t that the truth, ruth?

  • Chelsea

    she makes a decent point.
    i used to hate her cuz i thought she was trying to replace selena ( i love selena) but then i saw her utube videos. when you actually see her personality upfront like that…how can you not like her? she’s so silly and nice.
    good luck debby.

  • Anonymous

    I completely agree with her. You all don’t know her personally. She’s a genuine person, and she won’t care about any of your comments anyway. There will be people who love and hate. She accepts, and apparently many people on this page don’t.

  • Anonymous

    Did anyone actually READ what she said or do you guys post stupid comments because her “pose in the picture is annoying”???

    Like her or not, what she said is true and smarter than anything I’ve heard from other Disney stars.

  • ,georgia

    True u-ù

  • supercalifragilisticoespialidoso

    eeeeh, who cares what she thinks? not being mean but.. xD and yes, i love fiona apple and pump it up (:

    is debbie a singer?

  • Anonymous7654

    I don’t think so…

  • idkMyBFFjill

    Wow that was really well-spoken. I used to think she was trying to be different for the sake of being different, but now i’m not so sure…

  • Anonymous

    The people who call her annoying just because of the way she looks are the ones who are truly annoying. She sounds like a very real and grounded person.

  • Anna Cathe

    I HATE THIS GIRL she needs to stop with the pouty lip thing its so annoying!!

  • Anonymous

    wow the creepy doll is trying for wisdom and transcendence…too bad she’s too unintelligent to bumble her way through a logical thought: “Conforming to nonconformity is equal conformity”?. Was conformity the SAT word of the day or something? By definition you CAN’T assimilate to the refusal to conform, that would be an independent thought or action and thus you are unable to conform because of the independent initiative. Better try next time CONFUSED-ious.

    Agreed! Debby sees like a really smart, mature girl. And anyone who like Vampire Weekend is good in my book =)

  • CupcakezLover

    Just pleeeease don’t come out with an album.
