I still think some of you are overly harsh. He's such a "horrible person" because he handles social media different than you (say you) would had you been a celebrity? That's all it takes to be "horrible"?
And MIKE is the one that blows stuff out of proportion? At the very least, it's his career. Anyone here doing this for a living?
Look, Stadler, you're acting as if you knew MP personnally. There's no need to be up for him every single time somebody makes a negative comment. Plus, as Rumby said, it's only music we're talking about. Granted, some of the comments may seem harsh, but MP's trying to control everything is calling for that. Making music for a living may induce him to react like that, I don't know, but from a PR point of view, it's a catastrophe because I feel he's pushing some fans away from him. Given Bosk's words, apparently, he couldn't care less, but we'll see once the project is up.
For the record I don't know him personally. And actually sometimes I feel like I DO have to say something. No, not every single time, but I think respectfully, you're grossly over-simplifying the comments. There was a whole line of discussion - which prompted the thought that I shuld say something - that was along the lines of "I can't deal with this guy; I can't be a fan, I can't listen to the music, who would WORK with this guy, yadda yadda yadda", and I have to say, the record doesn't support that at all. With only a handful of exceptions, it seems like most people WOULD work with him, and some again and again. Right now, it appears there are only FOUR people that won't work with him again. And actually, two of those haven't entirely ruled that out.
I frankly don't disagree with your point on the PR side of things - I get that - but I politely disagree that it is 'about the music'. There's no music to be discussed; we're discussing HIM, and some of the comments HAVE been harsh. I've already noted some of them above, so I won't repeat them, but... I just don't agree that "he asked for it". That's playground stuff.
