    I understand them tbh, being popular has cons. - You feel that your new friends or GF like you just because of what you do and not who you are - You have reporters and paparazzi harrassing you everywhere you go - People asking for selfies and authographs after a while they become annoying You basically don't live like a normal person anymore

    @1:45 This announcer needs to learn how to READ WORDS! The first review did NOT say the music was "daft punky trash" you can clearly see in the video it was called "daft punky tHrash." There is a distinct "H" in that word that gives it a completely different meaning and inverted. Daft Punk is a lot of things but trash is NOT one of them! They are amazing! The band DID NOT reconsider the direction they were going after that review because the word THRASH is a positive word and not what was implied. So this announcer is both clueless AND can't read. Making up crap that did not happen. Double shame.

    @vinyl rewind you sir, are a non trendy idiot. Your whole 60s style twilight zone "theme" thing you are trying to push on people is really cringy but my main point is at 1:46 you yourself didn't even do the homework correctly, if you are gonna try and cover a topic or a group/artist maybe try to know what your talking about if your gonna attempt to record something and put it out there before even checking it you just called them trash. 🤦awkward... the magazine didn't. Jeez that hurts.
