mf doom about the imposters
from rolling stone.......???I tell you one thing: when you come to a Doom show, come expecting to hear music, don???t come expecting to see. You never know who you might see. It has nothing to do with a visual thing. Use your mind and think. I might be there. Next time I do a show, I might tell everybody to close they eyes. Use your own mind???s eye. That???s better than a camera phone, know what I???m sayin??????? ???The Doom live experience caused controversy in 2007, when the highly acclaimed lyricist behind Madvillainy and The Mouse and the Mask allegedly sent an impostor to perform several of his dates in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Furious crowds booed and took their rage to the Internet, reporting that the impostor lip-synced to MF Doom???s songs. Self-proclaimed super-villain Doom posted no response to his fan???s rage until now, when he tells Rolling Stone that he couldn???t care less.???Everything that we do is villain style,??? Doom says. ???Everybody has the right to get it or not get it. Once I throw it out, it???s there for interpretation. It might???ve seemed like it didn???t go well, but how do we know that wasn???t just pre-orchestrated so that we???re talking about it now? I tell you one thing: People are asking more now for live shows and I???m charging more, so it must???ve worked somewhere.???
