Brainwashing Accusations Continue

Andrew heads out on his Grand Canadian West Tour as brainwashing accusations resurface. He continues to defend his credibility in the latest edition of The Vancouver Sun.

Below is an excerpt of what Andrew had to say about conspiracy theorists linking him to groups such as the Illuminati, the Freemasons and the Church of Scientology. The full article will be published in The Vancouver Sun before his appearance at the Rickshaw on November 26, 2011.

“Yeah, well, umm, I don’t think any of the groups mentioned are bad groups. You know, the whole problem with a lot of this stuff and the reason why we’ve been trying and I’ve been trying to deal with it in different ways is that a lot of these things that people have run with were based initially on some kind of truth. And that’s what makes them harder to either completely deny or turn away. But it’s never been anything — what’s the word — ‘malevolent.’”

Andrew also slammed theories that attacked both him and Lady Gaga in a recent Spinner article.

An article titled, Andrew W.K. and the Problem of Identity, can be found on Gawker along with links from RockFeedback to Andrew’s lecture at Madame JoJo’s Club in London and his sit down interview.

Stories can be found at The Huffington Post and NPR via Carrie Brownstein’s Monitor Mix that followed, Ask Andrew W.K. Anything, an evening of questions at Santos Party House.
