Last time we checked in with Corey Feldman, he was reeling from the negative feedback of his “Go 4 It” performance on the Today show. The cruel ridicule that followed drove him to tears and prompted him to express his upset.
“I don’t care if you’re hiding behind a computer or a keyboard — it’s not an excuse. It’s not acceptable,” the 45-year-old told Us Weekly. “The somebody that you’re talking about is a real person with real feelings and real emotions. And I’ll tell you what, if I hadn’t been through this one thousand times, I might’ve taken my life over it. And then how would everybody feel?”
Now with the backlash a couple weeks behind him, Corey came back with a vengeance Sept. 28 at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood by performing a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Money.” A patron in attendance told Us Weekly, Corey was “having a lot of fun,” and in his “natural element.” “He was having a blast … he seemed very lively and spent the night dancing around the stage.”
Corey is also seeing the benefit of the mixed reaction to his Today performance. “We have gotten a lot of interest,” he says. “When they see you pulling in these kinds of numbers, like 10 million views on a video in two days, that’s really unheard of. Nobody expected this. But whether you love it or you hate it, you can’t stop watching it. And that sells tickets. At the end of the day it’s success. We have succeeded.” Way to go Corey!
