It's really none of our business. There are multiple sides to every story. The situation is sad in that two dear friends aren't speaking to one another, and there are clearly hard feelings on at least one side. But taking sides and getting all worked up about who said or didn't say this or that interviews seems out of line. Let go of the past, wish them both well and wait for the next installment of their creative offerings.

There were three levels of pain. Relating to the death of your mother, to not being able to feel passionate about your music, and to seeing people come to your show and …

… and treat me like a piece of shit, yeah. And the pain of seeing them not as human. That’s also a painful thing. Because there is nothing I want more than to be a part of something. One thing I loved about music or art in general is that it can connect you to other people. But this connection got lost.

 

Now Omar is agitated, fired up. He pushes back into the sofa, leans forward again, takes a small sip of his water and adjusts his glasses.

 

Did the death of your mother also keep you from being creative?

Yeah. Even then it was like … [pauses] No. This is a good example. During the death of my mother – it is weird to say that loud – I had to be creative. When she died, I felt so many intense things that words constantly came to me. Like words that I knew but never used. It seemed like the first line in a very beautiful book, and they constantly came to me as if they were a way of expressing the pain. It took a lot of energy for me to go like: I am not gonna write them down. I felt that I could have done some really great writing at that time, but I felt it was more important to honor the moment and to honor my mother.
