I'm international and maybe moving there without knowing much about the place itself, but I keep getting mixed responses, most americans seem to hate the idea of living in LA, most english people seem to love the idea (but of course they have mostly never been there either)
Ask an american why he hates the idea of living in Los Angeles and youll see it not based on any real reason but just some vogue idea of the city he might have heard from other Americans who might have lived in the city for a year or two.

1) Also true for NYC maybe not as much but what is wrong with not being fat?
2) It is a big city in America. This is has a greater amount of truth in NYC.
3) It is a big city in America. This is has a greater amount of truth in NYC.
But those rent rates are not representative of the average in Los Angeles.
4) It is a big city in America. If you know where to buy food you could find it for cheap.
5) Ticket prices are high across the nation.
There is also traffic but big cities have traffic but maybe this is the only thing that
has more truth in Los Angeles.

The cost of living is really high, especially in the areas surrounding UCLA. Plus, just as a personal preference, Southern California is a desert, which means there isn't much plant life.
You could say that about any big city. I just dont understand why people are surprised that big cities have people and the side effects of a lot of people.
