I was kind of hoping someone would explain things to Lewis Capaldi, but I guess there is no functioning music industry in the whole of England anymore. It’s one thing to act the clown and get people to listen to you because they don’t know if you’re going to collapse in a heap of your own barf, but, Jeez, dude.
You don’t have to demean yourself to get attention.
You don’t have to make yourself the butt of every joke.
You don’t have to put boxes on your limbs and pretend like you don’t have issues.
You can get up in front of people and sing songs and have fun. I think that’s the most reasonable explanation that is available. Let your songs be your calling card. Be friendly and happy if that’s your thing. You don’t have to be savage and moody and you don’t have to be one of those infighting Gallagher brothers.
Does Capaldi have management? Have they given up?
