I’m a singer-songwriter, and when my grandparents were visiting recently I was really excited to tell my grandpa that I had managed to weasel my way into meeting one of my favorite musicians, that we had started emailing material back and forth, and that he was helping me develop my songs more. My grandpa’s response was simply “yeah and once he sleeps with you, you’ll never hear from him again.” I didn’t even have a response. I just had to walk away. There has never been even an ounce of unprofessionalism between us. And other than meeting once, we’ve only communicated through email whenever I have a new song. I would never be naive enough to risk my career on something so stupid. I’m pretty good at judging when someone has ulterior motives, and I don’t put myself in those kind of situations. I work too hard for that bullshit. I couldn’t believe my grandpa would say something so incredibly disrespectful and sexist.
