Well, itâ€™s become more of a digital world and you have these different social networking sites where your fans can approach youâ€¦ Does all that change how you approach your music? Is it important for you to have a connection with your fans on these sites? Or is it more important to just be an artist and be creative and to make great music for people? I always reach out to me fans. When I first came out, I had my own website and I would do an update. A lot of people werenâ€™t doing that. Some were, but not a whole lot. It was more like posting a paragraph about whatâ€™s going on. And now with Twitter and everything, itâ€™s just like a constant influx of information from everyone, you know? I do have a Twitter account and I definitely do use it.
How do you deal with fans who get mad or insulted if you donâ€™t hit them back on Twitter? I know it has to be hard to read and respond to everyone. Usually what I do is, I respond back to my fans through direct message. But again, because I feel like everyone doesnâ€™t need to know. I donâ€™t need the world to know. I think in this time of social media, there definitely needs to be an unwritten new look at etiquette. Like when somebody is in the studio with someone else and theyâ€™re like â€œWeâ€™re just chilling. Weâ€™re just taking shots of some drink.â€ Maybe that artist doesnâ€™t want everybody to know that sheâ€™s in the studio taking a bunch of shots. Did you ask her before you told everybody?
