Peek-a-boo. I see you behind the curtains at Sam Bradley’s show. Can you pass along this message to your buddy for me? Thanks xo.
I’m giving you mad props for riding your new-found fame the right way. 85% of the girls at your shows are there because you’re Rob’s bud, and they hope to see Rob. I think you know that, but you’re not bitter.
You’re not sitting around feeling sorry for yourself that your boy is the big hot star and you are riding in his shadow. No- you’re taking ADVANTAGE of your friend’s fame and using it to help YOUR career. And I respect that. I shouldn’t- I should tell you it’s selling out and it’s using Rob and it’s lame because you and Rob have no real connection other than your friendship and a song you wrote together (that is actually two separate songs but you got confused and/or drunk) that made it on a hit soundtrack. But I’m not going to tell you that because I think you’re a legit guy, and I hope that someday you and I become bff’s. And I don’t just hope that because I want to meet Rob at your next birthday party (well, 15% of me doesn’t hope for that reason).
I say keep running with what you got. Play tons of shows, hint that Rob might show up, and sell LOTS of CDs and merch to the suckas who come just to hear Rob. But as a gal with a music business degree who was a kickin’ artist management intern in ’04, I have to offer this advice: find yourself an audience other than Rob Pattinson fans. Because the minute you and Robbie fight over something lame like who put a hole in Rob’s shiteous blue sweater from his HP days, or who was the first to kiss Shelly Smith during spin the bottle in 9th grade or you rag on Rob for actually getting down and dirty with KStew last year and your friendship ends, there goes 85% of your fanbase.
Looking forward to seeing you when you play Philly (I promise only 72% of me will be hoping Rob decides to show),
(Um, did I just write a post that was mostly nice and barely snarky? I feel weird. I’m sorry… let me fix that: Uh, your music isn’t that great. That’s not really true. I kinda like it. Damn, I got nothing. Enjoy this moment.. it rarely happens.)
First letter we wrote to Sam (and Sam left us a comment- Sorry I was kinda mean in response… uh.. i’ll be nicer this time, promise)
We usually keep Rob letters on just LTR, but today LTT has some Rob-related shizz
