Andy took to his Tumblr to respond to critics regarding his upcoming MTV interview. People have been up in arms since Andy described most Christian rap as being corny.
Here is Andy’s response:
Today my first major MTV interview is airing! I’m excited about it, but, I also want to share a few things w those tuning in. Those interviews are so tough. So much is running through my mind as I think through how to navigate each answer on the spot. I’m constantly pondering how to be honest, faithful, considerate of all parties watching and biblically accurate. All while knowing everything is being recorded and can and will be scrutinized by the internet. Simply put, there’s a lot of pressure and never enough time to fully explain each statement. I am not beyond making mistakes. I can and will. I definitely could have chosen my words more carefully to consider my audience better in this interview. I’m learning. My apologies go out to anyone who may be offended by some of my statements on air. I appreciate those that have taken the time to call out error in love. Pray for me as I continue to grow and learn to be an effective missionary in hip hop culture.
Love y’all. (source: andymineo.tumblr.com)
Props to Andy for coming forward and apologizing to those offended. I agree with Andy in saying that being on the spot like that is hard to choose your words carefully when things are moving fast-paced on live TV.
