Tyler Perry: Follow Your Heart, Not the Money

January 27, 2009 12:09 PM

Don't chase the money. That's a tenet actor-writer-producer Tyler Perry has held on to during his television and playwriting career, he said during a keynote interview at NATPE in Las Vegas this morning.

"The minute you start chasing money, you're in trouble," Mr. Perry said. "The most important thing is to stay true to what you feel inside. I have never wanted to compromise what I've done, and that's been a tremendous blessing every time I said no and walked away because there was a greater deal at the other end."

What a crock! After his efforts to stiff the writers on his steaming-pile-of-shaving cream sitcoms, who would take a word of this seriously?
