“I simply thought, ‘You know what? Whoever I was, whatever I was, I simply want to put it all behind me and start again. And I want to be myself for a second.’ A 100% me. Being honest with my audience and just letting them know who I am.”

While he recognizes the difficult life of an artist, Jackson Wang said that there will always be fans and detractors, but he believes that everyone who supports him on his musical journey is supporting the “true Jackson.”

“You know, I may not be flawless. Not everyone will like me. But, at the very least, if you like me and support me, you are supporting the genuine Jackson.”
