Rachel doesn’t get any sympathy from me because she brought it all on herself. She did everything she could to get in Nyada, to turn around and dump it for Broadway. She got her dream role, a role we have been hearing about since season 1, and she got bored after a few weeks, and dumped it for a TV show. They in turn dumped her.
She is a 20 year old living the life in NY. It’s unrealistic because New York is crawling with talented people. They didn’t show her struggle at all. She got everything handed to her since she is a special snowflake. Also why would anyone want to do a TV show about a girl who was only doing Broadway for a couple of weeks? That’s unrealistic.
Mercedes deserved her success. She was never utilized enough in Glee Club. She never got featured in competition until the TroubleTones. Sam uploaded her video to YouTube and someone discovered her and wanted her to sing backup. That is not uncommon. Many recording artist get their start from singing backup, for example: Mariah Carey.
Then she got a chance to record her own album, but they dropped her for having morals. Then she sold her album out of the trunk of her car. It ended up on the right hands. Again this is not uncommon. Many musician got their start because their mix tape ended up in the right hands. She negotiated like the boss she is, and became a song writer, who was able to put out an album after she wrote a required number of songs.Neyo and Keri Hilson are examples of songwriters who turned recording artist.
Now she is promoting her album by doing a mall tour. Many upcoming Artist do these.
Mercedes storyline and success is because she never gave up. Her dream stayed consistent. She is on the right path to getting her Grammy.
Rachel doesn’t know what she wants. I think she just wants to be in the spotlight, not caring how she got there.
So she gets no sympathy from me!
