I remember when I put out a demo CD in 2006 and started to play a lot of gigs for it, I’ve gotten so many haters, critics and bullies for sure. I’ve gotten so many haters online and offline. This Joy Villa woman who wore the “MAGA” dress at the Grammy’s gives you advice on how to stay above your haters and critics. As music artists, we’re all gonna get ’em. Every artist have their own share of haters, it’s not only me. You just have to learn to stay above ’em.
I almost gave up performing live only because I’ve had too many people negatively criticize me which I should never have. If I want to perform live shows, I can do that as much as I please even if people don’t like it. I love performing live in front of an audience. I haven’t done that in a long time and want to do it again. Yeah, if I ever get back out in the Capital Region music scene performing gigs and open mics again, I’ll probably continue to get a lot of haters but that’s okay. I’ll just learn to stay above ’em and brush ’em off. That’s what this lady said in this video, “Brush ’em off like they’re nothing”. You’re in control of your own life, do what you wanna do and fuck everybody’s feelings.
I’ve had so many people doubt my goals and dreams. I’ve had a lot of people in my life who didn’t support my music much including some friends and family members. Yeah when you want to become a performing artist, you’re going to get a lot of haters. Just ignore them.
I continue to get a lot of haters now. I have other musicians that hates me but that’s okay. I get all kinds of anonymous attacks online but I’m good at ignoring that stuff these days. I just delete and block the trolls.
I’m a musician, singer, guitar player and songwriter. It’s what I do. I will never give it up just because people tell me I can’t do it.
Do I want to get rich and famous off of what I do? No not really but I do want to become the best musician I can possibly be. That’s my goal and if it bothers people, that’s tough. They might think I’m arrogant and egotistical about it sure but there’s nothing wrong with feeling that you are a good musician.
Do whatcha wanna do in your life. Some of your dreams and goals whatever they are might hurt other people but who cares. There are other goals I have other than music like I want to get my license and car one of these days is one of them and have other goals too.
Whenever you want to have a goal there will always be someone who will call you delusional and say you can’t get there. For example, in fitness people criticize me that all the time too. They said I can’t get big and muscular, be in the best shape of my life well look at me now. Still have a lot of work to do in bodybuilding & fitness but I like what I have now.
Once again, do whatcha wanna do and fuck everyone’s feelings. Only you are in control of your life.
