Gabe Saporta Covers 'Paper' Beautiful People Issue

Gabe Saporta rocks a red shirt and jacket on the cover of Paper magazine’s 15th annual Beautiful People Issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Cobra Starship frontman had to share:

On the music business: “I never wanted music to be a business, but it is. Part of that business is putting in appearances, and not just on the music channels and talk shows.”

On the importance of female fans: “My manager always says that if there aren’t girls in the crowd, you know the band’s never going to last. Dudes want to get out some angst, but after that angst is gone, they’re over it. Girls want to learn the lyrics, sing along forever. They love it in a different way. They nurture it.”

On the importance of ignoring the critics: “People tear [our music] apart, but I try to ignore it as much as possible. If I do a song and it’s super commercial, someone’s going to say, ‘You’re a sell-out,’ but you’ve got to back yourself. If you can’t back yourself, it doesn’t matter who backs you or doesn’t back you – you’ll fall apart.”
