I don't expect Andrew W.K. to be a jackass about things, considering that he seems to be very zen-like in his love of partying, but if I were in his shoes I'd probably more than a little pissed about having my cultural ambassadorship revoked.
Apparently, Mr. W.K. is a better man than I.
In an interview with Salon, he tells them that he "was disappointed because we were so excited about the trip and the events they had scheduled for us," but that he feels "pretty confident, [that] friends of mine that otherwise wouldn’t have heard of Bahrain, have done so now,” concluding that “In that sense, my cultural ambassadorship has been fulfilled.”
In addition to the interview with Salon, W.K. issued a statement on his website, saying that he vows "to continue partying, and working everyday to to unite our human race through the power of positive partying."
You're a good guy, Andrew W.K. I'd party with you any day.
