This is amusing...
I once read an interview with Too $hort where he was asked about not getting proper recognition for everything he's done, and his response was one of the more beautiful things I've ever heard. To paraphrase, he said that after you create something, it's not yours anymore. You're giving it to the world. You can't control what happens from there so you just have to take everything as a blessing and keep working.
Nevertheless... really, dude?
