An asshole or a wanker because you’re all, “Hey, you’re just doing what you like”. You could be a “wanker” but if you’re a “wanker” you should be doing something because you might not be doing it by yourself. If you’re doing something yourself, then you’re doing something.
If you’ve got something to say why wouldn’t you? If you’ve got something to say why wouldn’t you?
If you don’t know the right thing to say, say it. If you don’t have any opinion on something but you’re certain that the right way to say it is “I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about” do it.
If you’re really desperate and you’re willing to make some noise in order to get this other side of yourself (your creative side) out there, go out and get your friends and family, talk to people, do anything. If this is not your style, you shouldn’t be asking people to give you the time of day.
If you’re actually passionate about something go out there and let life put the music in your head.
There is no right way to do things. There is no right way to write some stuff or write certain kinds of music.
Whatever you want to call yourself, there is no right or wrong way. So do what you want and do it for your art without anyone knowing or liking.
I’ve had conversations with people where I’ve said, “Oh, you’re not doing this because of money,” people are like, “You’re doing this for the love of it,” so go do it.
And I’m like:
“Well, then do it.”
It’s not about getting anyone to like you, it’s about doing your best, making sure you’re the best version of who you are, being open to having someone tell you what they think you need to do, so when you try something you’re making the best of things.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
