Home-schooled as a child, Bethany entered public school in junior high but decided it wasn’t for her after a devastating bout of cyber-bullying in 2009.

A haul video is a video recording, posted to the Internet, which displays items recently purchased, including product details or even the price. The posting of haul videos (or hauls) has been a growing trend, during 2007–2010.

Bethany Mota is a SCAM artist. She lures in viewers through giveaways and end sup not giving the winners their prizes (just type “bethany mota giveaway scandal” on google and you’ll see). Also, her clothes are OVERPRICED. You can find her room collection on ebay or amazon for half the price. She’s just another scamming a**hole who found a gullible teen fanbase to make her $$$. Also: Cameron needs to stop being a pouty little b-tch. Girls only like him for his supposed good looks. Tyler on the other hand, works so hard and has done so much for the lgbt community and has hilarious videos. Tyler was invited to the White House, met President Obama, and was nominated for a Young Hollywood award. Cameron only has 10 videos and had internet fame for only ONE YEAR. Tyler has been here for 3+ years. I don’t care if the awards were rigged, Cameron should be GRATEFUL he at least got an award which he didn’t deserve (Jacks or Lele STILL vine and are creative unlike Cameron who gave up)., in the end, Cameron Dallas is an talentless scumbag. Who can forget his SEXIST video against girls. That does NOT make you an internet star.

I think Bethany Mota is a great inspiration for loads of young girls who haven’t find their own style yet. It’s normal that she is so famous because of her peronality and style wich are ‘ideal’ for most of teenagers who dream to be like her. And to be like her doesn’t mean to wear the same clothes as her or buy the same as her, it means to find a place and things to do that you like and make you happy. She deserves all she has achieved and lots of people are proud of her and lovess her.
Anyways is your opinion , I respect it :)
