I started posting at my bands myspace and started attracting "friends" that were also fans. Well it seemed this artist was commenting all my friends but he never did comment me. This made all my friends feel special.
I took it like he didn't like me personally and it really ruined it for me listening to his music. To this day I can't.
Looking back now I find it strange that he commented ALL my friends(all average fans like me)
So..how did I manage to end up having so many of his *pets* for friends?
this is what I figured out. They saw he wasn't commenting me and decided to befriend me in order to brag and rub it in my face and feel special.
When I realized what was happening I emailed the artist and let him know not to do that..that the people he is commenting are contacting the people he is not commenting and making them feel bad.
Personally it is not in my nature to brag about stuff except to a small group of offline friends who are not fans of the artist. If I am given special attention I generally keep it to myself.
