This young man/little boy really, was so poor growing up that I bet he imagined having riches beyond his wildest dream! Now he has them, and as most who do not work for the fabulous wealth, or whose talent is only one to entertain; he feels entitled to his wealth. He believes that it is the reward for all the suffering HE endured during his young. But what of his single mother, who lived in the projects of Startford ON, who worked low paying jobs to keep body and soul together? She is the truly talented one.
He assumes now that he has made it he can forget his hours spent on the steps of the Thomas Patterson Theater playing his little cheap guitar and singing covers of popular songs for what ever change people would throw into his case. His past he has created as myth, something that he has made mythical the makes him even more entitled to all his wealth.
What I wonder about is what will happen when this young man’s fame fades, as it will, and he is not as popular or he can not change to suit the new music taste, or he will not mature? What will happen if his “nearest and dearest” are not honest and steal from him, use him for their own gain and sell tell all about the boy. How will that effect him? Not well.
