‘Completely Abandoned’: Greyson Chance Is Finally Ready to Talk About Ellen

He went viral at 12 and shot to fame with the help of Ellen DeGeneres. Now 25, the singer opens up for the first time about how he's “never met someone more manipulative, more self-centered, and more blatantly opportunistic" than her

....‘THIS IS THE first time I’ve been honest about her, and this is the last time I want to talk about it.”

Greyson Chance and I are sitting in the Hollywood Hills home of producer Brett McLaughlin on a warm August morning. The quaint spot is where Chance — the 25-year-old musician who got his start on The Ellen Show as a tween — stays when he visits L.A. from Oklahoma, where he owns a home. The place is typically filled with the boisterous energy of the artists McLaughlin works with. (RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Ginger Minj was recording a song here the other day. “‘Give me more @#$%&!’” Chance remembers, with a chuckle, hearing from McLaughlin’s studio.)

But today, the room is still, filled only with the palpable nervous energy of a musician unsure of how to start a conversation he’s been wanting to have for more than five years. “I figured we could start with this,” Chance says, cueing up the emotional video for his latest single, “My Dying Spirit.” “I’m barely on my feet, mama,” he sings over haunting piano. “I’m barely holding on by a thread.” It’s the only visual he’s dropping for Palladium, his recently released new album.

The piano chords rang loudly as a sixth-grader’s prepubescent voice echoed in the Oklahoma middle school gym. A shaky videographer captured a then-12-year-old Greyson Chance performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” in front of his schoolmates in early 2010, marking the first time that Greyson sang in front of a crowd. The boy could never have imagined that that local performance would change his life.

It took about a week after the video was posted online for Chance’s mom to receive a call from Los Angeles: Ellen DeGeneres wanted her son on the show the next day. “We just couldn’t believe what was happening,” Chance says. “We were so unsure of what we were getting into, and the person that helped cure all of that skepticism and chaotic energy was Ellen.”......

this is the original......Rolling Stone article.........?!


I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Wait, you mean there is anyone alive today who isn’t ‘manipulative, self-centered and blatantly opportunistic’?
