I'm speculating but for someone to make such a U-turn and to be giving off "I don't want to be here" vibes might suggest something a little sinister. It wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility for a celebrity to be caught up in a "honeypot" entrapment situation to secure their cooperation. Or he could be a typical two-faced opportunist like most of these jumped up harlequins in the entertainment industries who people are drawn to idolising as gods. Who knows.
Heard of this guy but never listened to his songs. I'm assuming there's a Canadian link (moose)? Anyway, he looks utterly miserable in that picture at the press conference, almost dejected. Wonder if he's being coerced to do this? 🤔
