Ronnie Radke is an infamous name, or so it seems. Some love him, some hate him, and some really just do not care.
I personally, don't know what to think of him lately. I feel like he thinks he's all that and I don't like that. Falling In Reverse is a great band, but its Falling In Reverse, not Ronnie Radke. He seems to act as if he thinks its all about him, and nobody else matters. I don't know if he really thinks that, as I don't know the guy, but that's how he sometimes comes across.
I also feel like he's beginning to take the hatred he gets out on his fans, even though he also seems to like the hate. He recently said in an interview with Alternative Press that he was just glad people cared enough to hate him or to like him. Some recent lyrics from "Alone", and now his new solo song, "The Fairweather Fans" lead me to believe such a thing.
Saying "I'm sick of these fans." as the first long of your first solo song, that was released out of no where, I might add, is not a good way to show your appreciate your fans at all. You're not sick of your fans, you're sick of the hate. If you're really sick of the hate, how about you stop acknowledging it? You can ignore the hate, and just focus on your fans, but Ronnie seems to do the opposite. To me, it appears as though he is focusing on the haters more than the fans, and that sincerely is not how to approach things.
He's talented, he knows he's talented, but I really think he needs a serious reality check. I'm hoping becoming a dad will help him get the reality check he needs, but at the same time, I do question how good of a father he will be. Guess we'll find out. It honestly is promising that he wanted to drop off touring for his girlfriend (Wife? That's another rumor.) so he can be there when the baby comes.
I used to defend Ronnie completely, but anymore...I find it hard to defend him. Its just how I currently see things. I don't mean to offend anyone, and I am by far not saying this is how Ronnie is. I'm just saying, lately he'a been coming across as a bit of a coincided, cocky, asshole.
