I think it takes a lot of trickery to keep up with the media and its perception of you. I don't know if I have it in me most of the time to care. The music is made first, and the interviews or photos to keep it alive come later as a necessary evil, I suppose.
A lot of the evil in the world is actually not intentional. A lot of people in the financial system did a lot of damage without intending to.

Pope Benedict XVI
Martin Luther King, Jr.
