Oh, man, I super know that! I haven’t cared much about that in a long time. I love myself perhaps a bit too much. I don’t so much care what the media thinks so much as where audiences’ tastes are swaying. Hopefully I’ll always be able to find an audience somewhere that likes whatever I’m doing. That’s really my goal.
The media is nothing more than a vicious cycle of sales. Make people hate themselves and then sell them snake oil to make it better. When it fails to work, offer the new and improved snake oil. Forget that mess. You, and anyone else, can do ANYTHING and for every negative voice there's another one cheering. Sadly, the detractors are very good at making the most noise. Hopefully that changes someday. Until then, keep being awesome, and we'll all try to clap louder.
