I don't think it's a big deal that they talk shit on bands like fall out boy or boys like girls. That's their opinion on them. We all have our opinions. It's whatever.
I don't think there is jealousy because these bands are bigger than them. Maybe they're just pissed because they hardly get recognition for the music they make. It's damn good music, too. They all have talent flowing through them, go to one of their shows.
I don't get what the big deal about Jeffree either. They aren't saying anything about loving Jeffree's music. They're friends with him, so what?
there's a difference between not liking fall out boy, and flat out saying they don't sing/play on their albums. i would not care if they just said something about fob sucking or something to that effect. wouldn't agree, but i'd respect their opinion. however, when you flat out lie about them, not cool.
and whether there really is any jealousy, i have no clue. really, there probably isn't. doesn't change the fact that the answer makes it seem like there is jealousy. whenever you pick out specific bands that are pretty successful, it looks that way.
and the jeffree star thing is a big deal b/c they have no room to start talking smack on at least decent, semi successful bands when they are "friends" with one of the worst people to come to music. that's like saying, oh they are ok with one of the worst acts in music today, but fall out boy is bullshit. do you really not see what's wrong there?
i understand that you love this band, and therefore will find any excuse you can find that will make it seem like that wasn't an asshole answer. but face the facts. it was a stupid answer. doesn't mean you can't still like the band.
honestly, they just should have left out specific names, talked about bands that don't write their own stuff or whatever, and their answer probably would have been praised on here.
