This week, I had a classmate conversation with Ana Gomez. Ana is a second year and is majoring in psychology. She was born in Whittier and raised in Maywood. She is currently a server at a Mexican restaurant called La Barca Jalisco. She is taking this class to fulfill her G.E. requirement. Ana is “super fascinated” by fan art because she says it’s all different due to each artist having their own art style. She said she felt like Demi overreacted to the whole situation. Ana explained how the artist drew her as his own portrayal of her through his eyes and that the portrayal wasn’t so off of how Demi actually looks. Ana also mentioned how Demi has always been public about her insecurities and her eating disorder so maybe that’s what caused her to react the way she did. Ana also agreed with me that Demi could have thanked the artist for taking the time to draw her.
