Andrew WK Denies Being Manipulated By Secret Svengali
Andrew WK has posted a statement on his website in which he denies being given an "identity" by his management. In a blog posted on Andrewwk.com, the New York singer attacked critics who he said have accused him of being a "victim of mind-control" since his 2001 debut album 'I Get Wet'. "Since 2001, I have been accused of being part of a conspiracy in which I knowingly entered into a contract with creative directors called Steev Mike, who proceeded to invent a new identity for me to perform under," he wrote. "I'm here to say this is simply not true and a gross exaggeration of easily explainable and common-place music industry practices." Steev Mike appears under the title executive producer on 'I Get Wet', and has been listed on several of WK's releases since 2001. WK went on to admit that he does "work with people who choose not to include their whole names or real names in the credits" of his songs, but that "taking advice and guidance from other people doesn't mean I'm a victim of mind-control". He added that his intentions are far more simple than some people presume, saying: "Andrew WK is about partying and doing what you want! We want fun, and that really is what I am about." Thanks for the report to Nme.com.
