Publicists and PR People
These retarded PR people grovel towards mainstream media. Doing this, gives more power to mainstream media who are only interested in making that artist a commodity while showing a complete disrespect for the artist at the same time.
The best way for an artist (a talented one) is to independently manage themselves without listening to the bad advice of PR people.
Essentially, having a PR person manage an artist's publicity is like throwing away whatever last hope that artist ever had for any real publicity. Thus the word “publicist” is an incorrect word. The correct word for a publicist is Ignoramus.
