It’s no secret I’m a huge Corey Feldman fan. He’s passion for music and fearless nature to share it with the world is beyond impressive and proof that you can chase your dreams at any age. The 45-year-old former child star turned musician received serious backlash last month when he performed “Go 4 It” on the morning sow, driving him to tears from the massive amount of online hate following the appearance.
However it wasn’t long before Corey bounced back with an impromptu performance in LA covering Pink Floyd’s TKTK, letting the world know he’s not going away anytime soon.
Now, Corey has returned to Today with a performance of his song “Take A Stand.” Talking to Tamron Hall in a white and gold hoodie, Corey compared himself to Eminem and Nirvana, and the hate they suffered when first starting out. “When KISS first started, when Eminem first started, when Nirvana first started, they all got hate. People were turning them off at the radio stations, people walking off the dance floor at the clubs, because it didn’t make sense to them at that time. But those all became amazing legends. So just think of it that way.”
While I liked his “Go 4 It” performance a little bit more, it’s super cool to see Corey pushing forward with his music. “I must keep moving forward, no matter what. Baring my heart through my song. But just like the rest of you, I only strive to belong,” he said. “We’re doing something new that hasn’t been done before, but it’s all about innovation and being an artist, and we can’t be afraid to share our art. … This song is for America. “I’m not letting the bullies get to us.”
