“I try to read my Twitter feed every day. I love the technology and the opportunity to actually interact and hear my fans one-on-one, so yeah, I’m on the there! All the stuff you see, all the mistakes I make, that’s me.”
You’re not selling out if you believe in the brand you’re using to promote your music.
