Allamorph Posted June 20, 2009 Share Posted June 20, 2009 [FONT=Arial][URL="http://tinyurl.com/laqkl8"][COLOR="Blue"]Article[/COLOR][/URL] So Simon Cowell has been criticised now for giving rough criticism and giving criticism roughly. And you know what? Reactions to him never cease to amaze me. But enough of that. The point is, do you agree with what he says? (I mean in the article, although agreeing with his criticism is also a valid angle to examine.) From my perspective, anytime you are in a situation where you're suddenly dealing with massive amounts of attention, there's going to be pressure that you're not used to. When things go great in these circumstances, the high is incredible. But the flip side of that is that the low when you mess up is gut-wrenching. I mean, I know this. I've listened to recordings of ensembles I've been in where one mistake on my part (the only one I made in that performance) sounded as bad as if I had stood up and started throwing pottery around. And it makes you sick. A situation as public as Britain's Got Talent has to be at least ten times worse. And you can't always assume people will be rational about criticism. The single biggest risk one can take as a forthright, honest critic is that the criticism you give may occasionally strike a wrong chord with someone. People don't always react well to being told they're doing things wrong.[/FONT] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
