I prefer email interviews.
Because I have seen so many journalists misquote me.
Some because they have genuinely misunderstood. Some because they have an agenda – they want to portray famous people as evil and manipulative, either to get more readership (a cynical option) or because they are just jealous or plain mean.
I suffer very little but I realize what major celebrities go through. Is that why they become so closed, sometimes even weird, seeking publicity as part of their job and yet fearful, even disdainful, of media.
Will that happen to me? Will I wear those dark glasses.
