You probably know him from starring roles in ’80s movies like “The Goonies,” “Gremlins” and “Stand By Me,” but more recently, actor and musician Corey Feldman has been making waves in the world of music.
After giving a wild, out-of-the-box performance of his new song “Go 4 It” on “Today” in September, Corey received an outlandish amount of internet bullying. But, instead of shutting down and quitting his craft, the 45-year-old decided to make a triumphant return to the show, not only to perform, but also to speak out against the culture of hate.
“We’re doing something new that hasn’t been done before,” he told Tamron Hall. “But it’s all about innovation and being an artist, and we can’t be afraid to share our art.”
Corey and his band then went on to give an exciting, passionate performance of their song “Take a Stand,” a tune they say is “for America.”
During the interview, Corey also revealed that, even though he’s received a lot of hate from the public, fellow-artists like P!nk, Kesha, Miley Cyrus and Paris Jackson have reached out to the band, saying that they love what they’re doing.
“I was talking to my friend… And he said, ‘Look at it this way,'” he said. “‘When Kiss first started, when Eminem first stared, when Nirvana first started, they all got hate. People were turning them off at the radio stations, people were walking off the dance floor at the clubs because it didn’t make sense to them at that time, but they all became amazing legends.'”
So, let’s take a look back at the performance that started it all, shall we?
