At the end of the day it’s the fans who make you who you are.
Everyone has a breaking point, turning point, stress point, the game is permeated with it. The fans don’t see it because we make it look so efficient. But internally, for a guy to be successful, you have to be like a clock spring, wound but not loose at the same time.
With all my fans I got a family again.
Keep your private life private. Be open to suggestions from different people. And just be nice. I have heard stories about people who are just plain rude to the press or fans.
Most people who end up being successful have good grades, but it’s orthogonal – there’s no extra information than if they put together a website and have bunch of fans who love coming and seeing what they’re doing.
My fans are my critics, and I respect their feedback and constructive criticism, but they should not try to own me. Don’t they experiment with their looks, too? If they are my real fans, then they will accept me how I am
