Corey Feldman is moving forward with his music—whether you like it or not. A month ago, Corey visited the Today Show to perform the first single off of his album, Angelic 2 the Core, “Go 4 It” & received a great deal of backlash. His performance was- different- to say the least. Corey returned to Today to redeem himself & stand up to bullies, performing an all too fitting song, “Take a Stand.” “We’re doing something new that hasn’t been done before,” Goonies actor told NBC’s Tamron Hall. “But it’s all about innovation and being an artist, and we can’t be afraid to share our art. This song by the way is for America. We are at a time right now where the world needs to focus really on peace and love and tolerance.” The 45 year old actor turned singer delivered that exact message as he passionately performed the track, shedding his jacket and letting his hair down in the process while frequently holding up the peace sign. A day before the performance, the star also wrote an essay for Today, explaining how his critics have affected him.
“As an artist, I’ve been bullied, I’ve been picked on strictly because I spread a message of love. As an artist, I take chances by creating new dances, and I risk it all while trying not “2” fall,” he explained. “As an artist, if I fail and make mistakes, that’s when my critics have a field day. However, the most painful part is when you get it all right, and remember all the parts, yet you open your computer, and read comments that would tear a hole through any commoners’ hearts.”
