I know how much people want to idolize their favorite musicians and artists but sometimes it’s a bad idea to interact with them or meet them in person. Why? It’s because you’ll never know whether or not they’re an asshole. That’s why it’s a good idea not to meet famous people, ya know???
Not all musicians are gonna be nice ’cause there will be many musicians that will be assholes, no matter how talented they are. I’ve met plenty of local musicians and local artists that I loved and respected but they turn out to be assholes when you talk to them.
All musicians are gonna be different, they’re not all the same. Some will be really nice and some are gonna be downright arrogant pricks.
Maybe Bowie was not an asshole to people at all? Maybe that’s just a Brit way of talking to people ’cause after all Bowie was British to begin with. Maybe British people say “Fuck Off” as their way of saying “bye”??? I don’t know. British people swear a lot like that. Bowie was a Brit who lived in New York City for most of his life. I know Ozzy talked like that a lot, he says “fuck off” to people a lot, not a way to be mean just his way of saying get lost. That’s just the Brits way of talking. I don’t believe Bowie was being mean to Dave, though.
Anyhow, whether or not Bowie was a jerk, either way he was still a talented artist and I’ll always love his music.
