-I love rap and my favorite singer is Eminem.
-Really? What's your favorite thing about him?
-I just like the fact he acts the way he wants and says whatever he feels like in his lyrics. He is not worried about putting on a front, you know? Most people in the music industry are fake and that bothers me a lot. I'm just trying to say he's authentic.
-Wow wow! You have a really strong opinion on that guy. You must really like him a lot.

-I heard about James' father's fatal accident. Have you heard from him since then and how he's been?
-I only saw him at the funeral and oddly enough I have to admit he didn't show any sign of grief over his father's death and I'm not the only one saying this.
-Well, I had the best impression of their relationship and it seemed they got along pretty well. I'm sure he's just putting up a front.
