Super Sad Emo Boy Runs Away
Not quite the 'goodbye cruel world' post that many were expecting and not necessarily a pathetic reason to give up, but still one of the most indulgent things an erstwhile emo pop star ever wrote on his personal blog? Yes. Absolutely.
Patrick Stump should have gotten mad and started putting together a follow-up album when the butter knives came out. Instead, he has crawled inside of his own misery and he has let the haters win. Perhaps it's me, but I tend to prefer artists who don't care what their kid-like fanbase thinks. An artist travels a pretty difficult road. Those who stay with you on that road are the ones worth playing to.
