His words below…
The creative choices are dropping all the ambiance of the room out. To me, it just feels like a musical. If they would’ve left the ambiance of the room — have music playing from the stereo, and had the guy rap, like you would hear me rapping live in this room right now — you would still stay present in the room. When you take all of the sound out, and it just sounds like a recording playing through there? It’s like a musical, that’s the only other time we’ve seen it that way. So we directly associate that with that kind of project like ‘Glee.’
His remarks come after he accused ‘Empire’s producers of stealing ideas from his project to create their own, accusing them of biting his marketing plan with:
It is what it is. They took it, they copied it, and it’s because they were targeting the same audience that ‘Power’ had for that show — and it worked. And I’m happy the project worked because I have friends [Timbaland, Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr.] working on that project.
Do you agree?
