"[Twitter] gives access to a bunch of retards to talk to me," Caleb said, astonishingly. "I don't really enjoy having to see somebody telling me what song I have to sing. I think at this point of the competition, I can pick and choose my own songs and represent me. I don't need 10,000 people saying, 'You should sing this, you should sing that. Listen to me!' Fortunately, guys, I'm going to listen to myself, whether you like it or not."
I feel Caleb should not have lashed out at his fans, but rather should have directed his discontent toward the show, who decided to mix it up and challenge the contestants in this way. The following paragraph is my response to the Yahoo article I read about what Caleb supposedly has said:
"Welcome to the limelight of stardom, young man; not everyone will love you. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." You, your fans, and your haters should all take stock in that phrase. Consider the source, and rise above it, rather than to sling crap, back. Have you ever heard, 'two wrongs don't make a right'."
Most hard core rock 'n rollers are somewhat aloof and uncaring about what anyone else thinks of them, or about them. It's the nature of the beast, so to speak. The hard core rockers are rebellious, by nature; that's why they are attracted to the heavier music. Personally, I feel his music verges more to heavy metal, rather than what someone my age would describe as 'rock and roll'.
