There's a lot of stir lately about Bryan Stars' second interview with Never Shout Never. Fans are saying Chris was being rude to Bryan, and that he's changed. That he's let fans go to his head -all kinds of stuff.
I currently have the video paused in the next tab over, and I've only got about fifteen minutes left of the video. I have to say, I seriously don't understand what fans are so worked up about. I figured he was bad mouthing Bryan or something like I've seen Jayy from Blood On The Dance Floor do.
Yes, Chris did seem to show his annoyance about the fact that Bryan was asking fun questions, not serious ones about music. Chris is a musician, and some musicians only care about the music. Some don't enjoy playing around, and being asked questions like, "What would your pornstar name be?" or "What's your girliest feature?"
Bryan has a fun style to his interviews. He does them as if its just a normal conversation with a friend. They do go off topic, and anyone knows his interviews rarely are actually about music. I love Bryan to pieces, so please do not be offended by what I'm going to say. His interviews are fun, but there are some people that just don't mesh well with goofing off.
Do I feel like he's changed a bit with the fame, but some people do. I don't feel like he's turned into an asshole, or anything. I actually really liked some of the things he said. Like everyone is strange, but yet its normal at the same time. Or how he has to take the hate to stay grounded along with the good stuff. He said a lot of meaningful things, so I don't understand why people got so worked up over it.
Now the other two were being a bit rude. You could tell they didn't want to be there, and did seem to think very little of Bryan, but that's their problem. Everyone latched onto what Chris said, and I don't get why. All he did really was be honest, and make it clear that he wanted to talk about music.
I think people just want to find something to bitch about. Quite frankly, that is how I feel. Even when he is critizing Bryan, he's not really being mean. He's just speaking his mind. He's not telling Bryan, "Oh you suck, stop doing what you're doing right this second. People like you make me sick." He's just telling him that he doesn't disagree completely with how Bryan works out.
I do understand why Chris and his bandmates don't want to do, as Chris called them, "bullshit questions", but I understand why Bryan is a bit upset over it.
A lot of bands do enjoy Bryan's style. Like Black Veil Brides, Blood On The Dance Floor, Asking Alexandria, All Time Low, ect. Others like Three Days Grace, and apparently Never Shout Never are more serious. Not everyone is the same, and people just have to accept it. Hell maybe the reason Chris didn't do another interview with Bryan for two years was because he didn't enjoy it as much as everyone thought.
Or, honestly people need to keep this in mind too, Chris was a kid the last time. Yes, he's changed, but he is not longer a kid. He was 18 at the last time, and now he's 20.
I also have one other comment. Don't get me wrong, I adore Bryan with every fiber of my being, but I feel like he was being over emotional about this. Chris wasn't really bad mouthing him, he just spoke his mind, and it wasn't what Bryan wanted to hear. It doesn't mean he needs to change his style, he just needs to keep it in mind if he ever interviews NSN again.
