Big Time LushApparently I pissed a few people off today— What’s new?

Big Time Rush fans, in NO way did I intend to disrespect the guys. My explanation was rushed (teehee) and worded wrong in the final iteration of the interview.

To clarify, BTR’s reps asked to do a version of No Idea, which we were totally cool with, and that version of the song ended up on their newest record. (They even credited me. Aww.)

When I compared them to The Monkees, I was merely attempting to explain how and why they ended up with an alternate version of our song on their album in the first place— certain aspects of their band are determined by the powers over at Nickelodeon, and their TV show, which the band was formed around, (as was their music, respectively.) That’s just fact. No denying it.

However, what defines a “real band” is subjective, and taken out of context, my comment definitely came off as condescending, which was never my intention.

Those guys are homies, and they’re doing what they do very well— I certainly wasn’t tryna hate.

Did anyone read the Entertainment Weekly piece on them? It LITERALLY said the idea for Big Time Rush was to do a modern take of what the Monkees did.

And its the same thing as the monkees. Tv network puts together a band along with a goofy tv show for kids and record catchy songs in a modern style.
