In the media industry , esp. as an artist manager I've become a villain to a few people. I dont know maybe allot :) I stumbled into reading this article and this kinda encouraged me.. Happiness is letting someone make you the villain. When I was making my record , I hired a bassist. But listening back to his tracks afterwards, I decided to play bass myself instead. I’m glad I did, and love the results. But I hear he still hates me, 13 years later. A writer in LA loved CD Baby, and kept insisting I hire him as a consultant, clearly wanting the association. After his many requests and my many refusals, he threatened to tell everyone CD Baby was a scam unless I hired him. I didn’t pay, so he’s been slamming me publicly for years now. Some ex-girlfriends and ex-colleagues hate me. Some people I’ve never met write pages on their blog about how much they hate me. Funny thing is : I’m happy to be the villain they need . Some people can only feel right by making someone else wrong.
