Steve Angello on haters: "It's pretty funny stuff"
Wed 11th Apr, 2012 Newsin
From getting in a fight with Paris Hilton’s bodyguard to his online scuffles with DJ Sneak, Steve Angello has never been one to stifle his opinions. One topic he often returns to is the culture of ‘haters’ online: for example, the fans who tore into him after his performance at Dance Valley last year. Now Angello has taken to his Facebook page to vent some frustrations/offer some life advice. His gripe? Internet lurkers who tell him he’s sold out.
“It’s funny how people can tell what you love or not,” he wrote. “I find it strange since I’m the only one that actually know what I feel or love! Unless it’s some magic internet thing where everyone knows what’s going on in your head…No one is forcing you or holding a gun to your head telling you to go places or do things, it’s up to each and every one of us individually to make a choice based on what’s best for us, if we are controlled based on what other people think we can stop living! You do what’s best for you.”
But hey, it’s not just dance music, says Steve. “Sometimes when I’m bored I read reviews of restaurants, movies or anything else I cross paths with and all comments always end up in a fight about people telling other people that what they actually like is shit…it’s hilarious…take any site that has a ‘comments’ section and give it a 20 minute read. It’s pretty funny stuff!”
Well, inthemix has a ‘comments’ section, so we guess you should have a trawl around here if you’re in need of a laugh.
