(O'Shea Jackson, better known as Ice Cube)
When I feel like I’m coming under fire, it’s best for me to keep my emotions under wraps.
In other words:
When I want to disarm my adversary, it is best to stay dispassionate.
I respond by first saying, “that’s interesting.” This passive voice suggests that I feel nothing.
“From my perspective” is also a useful phrase introducing subjectivity, without being attacking.
When making art, and dealing with the art world, cooler on the outside is always better.
Take that motherfucker.
