Quotes - Musicians Talk Fans
You know how you feel about your faves like *NSYNC, Britney and BSB - but do you ever wonder what they might think about having fans? Here's some opinions from a few well known singers.
"It is weird sometimes, but it's a good feeling to know that you've worked so hard and people appreciate your music, sing the words to your songs. It's overwhelming. It's really the best feeling in the world."
~ Britney Spears.
"Touring is a big part of what we do to us because we get to, you know, bring our music to our fans in a live sense. You know, they get to actually see it rather than just listen to it."
~ Justin Timberlake of *NSYNC.
"There are a few fans across the country who have gotten 98 Degrees tattoos - it's a little scary. It's a great sign of dedication from a fan, but at the same time it was tough for Jeff and I to make the decision to get a tattoo on our bodies, so for a fan to do it really surprised us. That said, we have some of the greatest fans in the world and any sign of devotion is great, as long as their parents don't mind." ~ Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees.
"It's just nice that we can be who we are and people appreciate the music we're making, and we don't have to change who we are or what we do to get fans. It's really nice."
~ Drew Lachey of 98 Degrees.
"We just like writing good songs with good melodies that you'll sing at our shows and remember when you walk away."
~ Ryan Peake of Nickelback.
"At first, I was a little nervous of how they would perceive it, but at the same time, you've got to look at what's best for you." ~ BSB's Brian Littrell on the fans' reaction to his marriage.
"I can't cater to people that never want us to change and want us to stay stuck. That wasn't why they liked us the first time around. I think people already know if they like us or they don't by now. We have a lot of fans, and they're really great people, so we're happy with that."
~ Dexter Holland of The Offspring.
