“But there’s going to come a point where they’re going to turn on me. I don’t know what it’s going to be, I don’t know why. I’m not trying to manifest it either. But I just inevitably say it’s what happens,” he continued. “I see sparks of it like any great artist sees. But all the people who defend me will turn against me. And now I have a good feeling that they are going to turn around.”
