1. "Hell, while I was writing this, Pharrell texted me, “You are a writer with a voice that will move people.” Do you think I care about what a critic thinks? All I’m trying to do is make art that inspires others and you should only exert energy on whatever it is that you’re trying to do. Fuck a hater, even if they used to be your homie. Instill that attitude within yourself and you’ll always come out on top. Repeat after me: I will not lose ever. Fucker."
