Well, here we go again, the magazines using the stars to make money,do musicians have to behave according to the madia standards? Besides what is "pathetic" for them? Are they using the concept correctly? Here's the meaning found in the Oxford dictionary:
• adjective 1 arousing pity. 2 informal miserably inadequate. 3 (archaic) relating to the emotions.
— DERIVATIVES pathetically adverb.
— ORIGIN Greek pathetikos ‘sensitive’, from pathos ‘suffering’.
So subjective appreciations again in the media, a magazine in this case, as Freddie would say:"The things you have to do for money"...
Best wishes, peace and whole lotta love!
"If we are alive, we're gonna play.We're musicians.That's what we do". Brian May
