In light of all that has happened over the past week, Steve Angello posted a serious comment acknowledging how the fans affect young artists without even knowing it.
Artists are always engaging in beef with each other but when the rivalry becomes public, fans begin chiming in their thoughts which only intensifies the situation. This is even more so for up and coming younger artists who may try to use this opportunity to increase their fanbase. Younger inexperienced artists are more easily pressured by fans and may act violently in hopes of pleasing their fans without realizing the consequences of their actions. Steve Angello comments on this serious dilemma in a recent Instagram post.
While it is all fun and games in the perspective of fans, we often forget that artists are humans too. Angello states that we as fans actually have a huge impact on the attitude of artists. While we may never know what truly drove the shooters who murder xxxtentacion to commit the crime, let it be an example of just how young artists are clearly affected by violence. Fans have pointed their fingers at Soldier Kid for X’s murder and this is exactly what Angello meant by the spread of violence through fans. Max Vangeli‘s melt down last week stirred up quite a bit of buzz in the EDM world last week as well. Whether it was a stunt for publicity or he genuinely felt the need to call out his peers, fans engaged in his Twitter outbreak and began ridiculing him for his wild comments.
Angello would then get personal by sharing about the devastation he felt when he lost his father and how he couldn’t possibly imagine losing a child of his own. This personal comparison is meant to show fans the reality of it all and how artists are nothing more than any other human who encounter these situations. Check out his post full post below and just mindful of how your words can affect the lives of others.
