Facebook likes, Twitter followers, and YouTube subscriber counts have absolutely nothing to do with talent. Don’t focus on them too much. Focus on improving your musical skill set. - words of wisdom for all my musical friends, fame and talent are two separate things.
So nowadays I live in London, I love it here BUT…..I’m so sick of people constantly going on about artists turning “commercial/mainstream” because they’re successful. then people going on to say they don’t listen to them because everyone else does!? if you support an artist WHY wouldn’t you want them to do well? and who are we to say who can listen to particular music, or decide wether they like it as much as WE do?? like, I wouldn’t stop drinking coffee because everyone else is, and I’m not gonna stop wearing clothes because everyone else does (within reason). people should stop labelling and just enjoy the music! music is music. needed to get that out of my head.
