I felt like people would be like, ‘Y’all are doing all these festivals, y’all are just doing it for money.’ And I felt like a sell-out, honestly. So I was like, if I’m in on the joke, I’ll feel cool about it.
Interesting quotes from Andre 3000 in a new interview with Pitchfork, where he most notably admitted he felt like a sell-out in going back on tour with Big Boi in the 2014 Festival Season. The end of the quote above is in reference to the highly entertaining fashion statements he varied with each show, now on display during this week’s Art Basel in Miami.
Another interesting quote:
We hadn’t performed in 10 years. It was old songs. I’m like, How am I gonna present these songs? I don’t have nothing new to say. So I was like, maybe I can start saying new stuff while doing these old songs. It became a theme where I was more excited about this than the actual show. This is fun, running out in these.
