You can only please some of the people half the time…
So, earlier tonight, Adam Lambert sent this series of tweets:
Hey guys. I have gotten a few negative messages about not signing autographs. Sorry If anyone is dissapointed.
I feel bad but please understand that I try to give you guys 110% on stage. Your ticket is to see us perform! Entitlement is not sexy…
I Loooooooooove and am deeply grateful to my fans who made idol a dream come true. I feel that I express that love in my performance.Thank u
Thanks to those of you who “get it” You guys are so rad. The messages were really thoughtful. A few of you need to quit being so negative.
So, that got me thinking…what if Taylor had been that upfront with his fans? What if from the beginning, instead of being the “southern gentleman”, what if he twittered and said something like, “Save your money. I don’t need anyone to buy me wild bald eagles, or to name a star after me…just spend your money on my tour and cd’s” ?
Oh, could you even imagine the backlash?
What do you think is better? Being yourself with fans, not catering to the bullshit that inevitably happens? Or being quiet, trying to make everybody happy?
