Reminder: Some Musicians Are Delightfully Nice and Others Are Bullies, Just Like Everyone Else

I like reading about people being nice whether they are famous or just a, "Regular person." Sometimes fame and wealth seem to be a corrupting influence that amplifies a person's worth personality features, and other times it doesn't impact their being pleasant one bit. More and more stories have emerged lately of Post Malone being just a really nice dude, and that's good to hear. Post Malone has some songs I enjoy and others I hate, but overall his stuff is at least listenable. Plus, any news story I read about him discusses how he's really friendly and fun. One recent story is about him chatting with a fan who was celebrating their 21st birthday and who happened to have autism. Malone seems to always come across as delightful and humble.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is picking fights with plenty of other rappers and proving herself to be a bully. I have written here before about how I've never been a fan of Minaj and if I had the option of listening to her music or Cardi B, Doja Cat, Latto, Saweetie, or any other popular female rap artist I would pick them anytime over her. I just don't like Nicki's songs or how she seems to treat others. Reading that she harassed the woman who accused her husband of sexual assault just is disgusting. At least by all accounts some of my favorite music artists (Big Boi and Andre 3000 of OutKast, Kendrick Lamar) are cool and not jerks.
