music is life, music is breath, music is us

Scott Stapp

I won’t make this long. The media has recently made it their mission to rake Stapp over the coals. Mental illness remains a stigma (I know personally in how I’ve been treated with my mental disorder), and this is unacceptable. Scott buddy, I’m thinking about you, my mom loved your music when I was a child and I came to enjoy it too. People are entitled to their opinion, and this is mine. To the media, I’ve always held you in low regard, but seriously, fuck off and let this man get the help he needs. Your sensationalism is an enemy to us all. We need to bring mental illness into the light of day, we cannot be ashamed nor will we stand down when victimized. Love, peace, and prayers to you Scott. Please get help.

End rant.

  1. It’s Amanda Bynes all over again. At first the story had a certain “WTF?” thing going on, and I made a joke or two at Stapp’s expense, thinking it was the booze again. However in recent weeks it’s gotten sadder and sadder, and it’s clear that the media isn’t helping one iota. They’re mocking him while trying to make it look like they’re not. But he needs to get somewhere safe, and he needs to do it quickly before he gets hurt. I’m sad that it appears there is no one in his life that can take control and get him some help. A sick man alone, that is the saddest part.

    • I just hope he doesn’t succeed with suicide this time. He has tried it before…I fear for him

      • I say it with nothing but concern for another human being: I hope someone helps him. The fact that this has been all over the news, for weeks now, and no kind benefactor has taken him inside to get help?

      • At least we both know that we’d help people in our lives if they had this happen. Kind of a weird statement but it fits.

      • Yeah. I can’t really talk too much on the subject for obvious reasons but I have been in positions many time in the past of being there for someone in a crisis moment. It’s never easy. But when somebody I care about is in need it’s hard to say no.
