Trent Reznor Announces His Best Is Ahead, Slams Emo

Nine Inch Nail mastermind Trent Reznor gets as giddy as a goth can get when discussing the upcoming April release of his new album reportedly called Year Zero. “With Teeth was me kind of wondering if I could still even do this,” he said in a revealing recent interview. “I’ve got my confidence back. I feel stronger about what I have to say as an artist and I feel a lot less concerned about what people think about it — my best work’s ahead of me.” After tiring of patting his own back, Reznor went on to pontificate on another of his recent epiphanies: “Emo screamo!” he ranted in an oddly Dr. Seussian style. “If I happen to accidentally turn the radio on, I literally can’t tell the difference between one of 20 bands,” said a clearly exasperated icon. “Either I’m getting old, which is a fact, or I’m turning into my dad! I wonder about the person that’s in a band, the young kid who just got signed or is trying to get signed – why is he doing it? Is he trying to change the world and do something different and express himself — or is it because they want to fuck Paris Hilton and be photographed outside trendy restaurants?” Either option sounds artistically fulfilling. Which do you think is the reality?
