"Scandal's" Columbus Short: “I’m In A Perfect Place To Write Great Music”
He’s been accused of threatening his estranged wife with a murder-suicide and slapped with a restraining order, but that’s not keeping Columbus Short down.
While plugging his new single “Gave You” at Hollywood’s Couture Lounge last night (April 17), the “Scandal” star told People he’s in a good place.
“To be honest with you, I'm feeling raw, focused, vulnerable and in a perfect place to write great music. God's been preparing me for a long time to deal with this season of my life. Being able to have thick skin is something that is needed."
In fact, Columbus doesn’t get into the media circus, especially if it’s about him. "You want to know the truth? I don't read anything. I don't read the good stuff and I don't read the bad stuff, because if I read the good stuff, I've got to read the bad stuff. I don't allow myself to make agreements with nonsense so I just don't take it in."
"I block it and I make sure my team knows, don't even show me stuff – because unless it's real, I don't even want to see it, I don't even want to talk about it, because you never know where stuff is coming from and you make an agreement with a lie."
