The Meaning Behind FOCUS
“The first line of focus is: ‘I know what I came to do and that aint gonna change’. What I came here to do in this world is not only to entertain but to love, to share, to listen, to improve, to learn, to share music, to share experience, to share feelings, to make people feel happy and empowered. To make people feel like they’re not alone. Without using my voice to do those things I would feel empty. When I say ‘focus on me’ I’m not asking to be the centre of attention. I’m not asking you to focus on my face or my clothes or my body or my singing voice. By ‘focus on me’ I literally mean focus on me. Focus on what I’m all about and what I believe in. The more we focus on eachother as people and not on what we look like, what we’re wearing, our gender, our hairstyle, our sexuality, the colour of our skin. But focus on eachother on a soul level. The more we realize how much we have in common, the more we listen to eachother, the more one we become. You judge because you don’t focus on me, you don’t focus on eachother. You judge because you focus on appearance, on clothes. You focus on what you want from me, what you want from people. How you want them to wear their hair. You judge me, you wanna see me dressed a certain way, how you wanna see their make-up, their eyebrows. You focus on what you think people should be like for you. But when you stop and you actually focus on someone, you’ll see the light in them. When you focus on me, you see the light in me. When we focus on eachother we see the light in eachother. And even if you don’t, this is who we are. What are we making fun of? What’s there to make fun of? We should apologize for that.”
