Artist had album dropping today. Has done constant media for the last week and a half, expressing “who he is,” the fact that he’s young and now being forced to grow up in front of America and will do whatever it takes to ‘keep it real’ unlike his other male R&B counterparts. He also has requested that his beef with Trey Songz not be discussed, just his album—and anything else, like the weather.
What should’ve happened?
1. Should he ‘keep it real’ yet look like an ass to all of his fans?
2. Deflect the question and handle it like a pro?
3. Should the media be held to any standards for not honoring his wishes?
4. What do people really want to discuss? His music or his beef?
