Tori Vega Was The WORST 'Victorious' Character, Change My Mind

We were definitely brainwashed to believe Tori was the best character just because she was the star of the show.

Tori Vega Was The WORST 'Victorious' Character, Change My Mind

"Victorious" was the epitome of our tween years, and now that it's on Netflix, we have the chance to relive those sweet, sweet memories.

I was a bit biased to watching the show in the first place, especially since I share the same last name as the main character, Vega. I had the best time in middle school making everyone believe the show was based on my family, but that couldn't be farther from the truth.

I admired the show, my sister and I constantly belting song after song at the most random times. One thing, though -- we were definitely brainwashed to believe Tori was the best character just because she was the star of the show.

She was almost constantly annoying, getting into Jade, Cat, and everyone else's relationship business. We can't forget the time she kissed Beck in front of his girlfriend and their entire class.

Instead of fueling the fire into her and Jade's rivalry, she should have taken things into a more private setting. Yeah, maybe Jade did pour coffee on her, but being the bigger person can sometimes be the best thing to do, rather than egging on the bad situation.


Tori was also really narcissistic, always placing herself in the center of everyone's lives. She kept forcing her friends to give her birthday gift ideas for Trina, even yelling at Cat at a point for not being helpful.

In this episode, "The Birthweek Song," I just wanted to scream, "She's YOUR sister, Tori! Maybe that says something about you!"

Aside from this, she was the one who got Beck kicked off the movie he had a minor role in. This may not have been the biggest deal, but for a high school student, I'm sure it felt like the start of his professional acting career.

She was advised by her friends, who, for some reason, knew way more about Hollywood than she did, to keep quiet and do as the movie crew said.

Of course, she did not abide by this and embarrassingly, Beck, and her own self were demanded to leave. If she had kept her mouth shut, maybe the Victorious gang would be more recognizable and considerable for movie roles.

Let's not forget about how often the rest of the cast outshone Tori and her talent. Yes, she did have a great voice, but there were better ones in the cast, like Cat and Jade.

They absolutely killed every performance they put on and took on challenging songs with super high notes. Cat may have been slightly off her rocker, but she made up for this with her extreme singing talent.

Jade was almost a completely different person on stage than her character leads people to believe. Andre also had a very underrated voice and instrumental talent, a sure prodigy in the viewer's eyes.

Mind you, Tori couldn't handle learning the piccolo or the French Horn.

Basically, Tori wasn't as great as we all thought she was in our tween years.

Watching the show now is kinda hard, TBH, because she can be so annoying.

Luckily, the other characters and their immense talents surely make up for it.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
