Broadway has never been my dream, so that’s understandable. I just busted my ass for so long to please Ryan Murphy, and I was constantly told by not just the media but him that I wasn’t good enough. Why do you think it took so long in between Man’s World and Never Can Say Goodbye to get a real solo?
Because Ryan is a fuck up sometimes who doesn’t pay enough attention, and he hated Quinn anyway. That’s the thing with these people—what’s commercial and sells isn’t always the status quo. Sure, Lea and Naya’s voices kick serious ass, but they sell well because their characters are featured a lot. That said, it’s not everyone’s taste. Some people like their voices, some people like Amber’s, some people think I should be silenced forever, and some people love your voice above all else—I read those Twitter feeds. This is like saying, okay—Radiohead makes an album. It fucking rocks because it’s Radiohead. But their record label says, ‘eh, we’ll hold off on giving you more studio time,’ and not everyone liked it, it wasn’t well reviewed, so they wait and wait and wait, and when their next album hits…yeah, it’s fucking awesome too, and better than before. The record execs didn’t know shit, and Radiohead still manages to chart and sell despite the change in music tastes today. You are my Radiohead. You’re fucking awesome.
