    Here's a TLDR because ya'll are lazy

    So basically, that interview that everyone was posting isn't an actual interview, but mistranslated snippets of his past interviews

    What the photo book translation said
    My dream is to gain recognition for my music in the US, the land of black music, and hopefully, around the world. I want to do music that shows who I am as a singer and music that is acknowledged for both its artistic quality and public appeal.

    I dont know. Was this news posted in the articles like the Wiz Khalifa one? If it was valid they would've posted but they didn't (or I missed it?), so their translators probably saw that it was bogus.

    Uhm..... I completely missed that there even was a racist interview in the first place. That's good though, I guess.

    Whatever, parent trying to sound cool.

    Why was he even talking about black people and not just Americans or other races?
