I probably won't even read it just because I know it won't be better.

Can't wait to read this when I get some down time at work today. Patrick has been getting a ton of well deserved press lately. He's such a fascinating person to read about -- probably due to his avoidance of the spotlight (no pun intended) when he was in Fall Out Boy.

You did not. Even with zero details I'm already ready to hear about it.

AP.net's interview was a lot more detailed and exhaustive, so it felt a lot more personal. I definitely enjoyed reading it more. Still, he did remain consistent. A lot of what he said in both interviews are in the same vein. I liked this in particular:

Quote:
You recently said, “Pop music is depressing because nobody takes it all the way.” Can you elaborate a little on that?
I don’t remember the context in which I said that, but I do stand by what I say about pop music because I feel like pop music itself isn’t wrong. It’s great, actually. But the fact that people are so lazy and so unimaginative about it is sad. There’s this idea of dumbing-down, that to make pop music, it has to be the same four chords and it has to be a song about girls or drinking or partying. I feel like that’s really lazy craftsmanship. When you look throughout pop music history, there are really brilliant songs with a lot more to them than that, both musically and lyrically. I wanted to make what I thought was a pop record, but one that I cared about, one I’m not ashamed to admit I wrote [Laughs].

I think now is a really good time for musicians to stand up and do pop music with some dignity. I like when I see somebody like Bruno Mars, because I honestly believe that he really stands by that music. It’s no longer the era of Lou Pearlman. You can be pop without being fabricated.

Pretty cool of him to reference Bruno Mars like that.
