Be prepared to see some changes at Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer in the next few months. A friend of Daniel Taylor Esq. expressed on Twitter that it was time to “quit harping”, which is %100 up to me, of course. Here is the good news: I am starting to agree with him. I got a lot out of this blog as far as working through the psychological issues that occurred as a result of P!NKTributegate. This blog saved my life, as did the 2,500 readers from 70 countries that stopped by to hear my story…(although many stumbled in on accident).
It’s time to start letting go of the anger. I will never forget, but I will forgive. It’s a process and I am committed to it. At the end of the day, I have to remember that the people that defamed me have never met me. On some level to do their jobs correctly, they can’t afford to think of their subjects as living, breathing human beings.
Now that I feel I have laid the groundwork for my future path, which includes healing and putting my love for my craft first… I have to ask myself “How can my story be useful to others…so it doesn’t happen to others?”.There is just too much beauty and positivity in the world to stay stuck in the trauma. It’s time to let it go.
I will never stop telling my story, because educating the public is now a soul mission of mine and just part of my life path. Let’s face it though… not everyone wants to learn about the legal system, if it’s not happening to them personally. Because it can be hella dark, and sometimes hella boring. For this reason, I hope to tell my story in a way that is engaging but educational.
I’m working with a comedy writer who is going to help me tell this story in a well, less damaged tone. My story is important and everyone who lives in the United States should hear it. In addition to the book “Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer”, I am toying with the idea of writing a musical as well. My new album has a lot songs about the legal system, which is kind of weird for a pop record…lol. It occurred to me that it could translate well into a musical. I’ll be shooting some video… I may eventually do a documentary about the New York Post portion of the story… because there are some deep issues there that really need to be examined there as well. My hope is if we can see what goes on behind the scenes in the mainstream media.. we’ll learn how to stop feeding the beast.. or at least make tabloid-y media coverage that’s passed off as news less profitable.
I can’t be too mad at the New York Post because they did their job, which was to sell the story. I have worked with them before however, and know they are actually capable of delivering news without slander. My hope is that they will evolve on their coverage of the story and ditch the “Old and Ugly” headlines.
Going through the legal system for the first time is not the right time to learn about it for the first time. Proper educational tools are not really in place yet to educate the public, so let’s change that!
Anyway, I am also very open to suggestions on how “Confessions of a Bad, Ugly Singer’ can evolve and might be useful… learning my story, do YOU have questions about the legal system?
