Does Success Breed Hate?
The other day I was reading an article that I found on Facebook by inthemix. inthemix is a online publication that features new electronic dance music and news about the artists. The article talks about how Afrojack has a new song that he's promoting with Budweiser called, “10 Feet Tall”. It's a decent song, catchy, there's nothing wrong with it, but people went on to not only tear down the song, but the DJ himself. Then I started clicking around looking at all their posts about various artists. Every single one had a negative comment of some sort.
When you start gaining attention you also need to be prepared for more criticism. Criticism is a good thing, really. Sometimes you're heading in the wrong direction and feedback is necessary to figure out where to pick back up. But mindless comments aren't helpful. I guess I brought this up because I'm shocked by the anger for really no apparent reason. It's interesting to me, as someone who works in media, to understand how to help someone/a company/an artist etc, avoid negativity while still being successful.

Why do you think others tear down successful people on the internet?
