WAINAO N°25 - THE ARTIST AND THE SHADOW
WHY NOW? BECAUSE ELTON JOHN AND EMINEM DIDN'T KNOW EACH OTHER AT THAT POINT, AND ELTON PUT HIS CREDIBILITY, THE FIGHT OF HIS LIFE, ON THE LINE ..JUST BASED ON WHAT HE HEARD FROM EMINEM'S ART. it was a great performance and an even greater symbol . Many felt offended and didn't understand that elton could share the scene with someone who was accused at the time of homophobia. But artists have a different level of consciousness.
Elton had seen something in em's music behind explicit lyrics .art has no location, or social class....and they're still friends today.
“ Have you ever loved an artist so much that you end up considering the person he is, when he’s not performing as a simple ghost attached to him…that’s what happens in ART ! The man becomes the shadow .”
" i don't care if you love or hate these lyrics.........i don't care about your opinion unless you heard the all song ! "
