What a year for the Red Phoenix legion of fans! First they get to see me in a music video that hit #1. And now they, along with hundreds of millions of others, get to see me at the 2012 Olympic Games. My brand has truly gone world wide.
Thank you all for your help. I could have done it without you, but you all came along for the ride. And I appreciate that.
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.
