Corey Feldman returns to Today to perform Take a Stand

‘It hasn’t been done before,’ Feldman says of his style

Posted on

Corey Feldman is back on TODAY.

The Goonies actor returned to the NBC morning show on Thursday to perform the message song “Take a Stand” from his new album Angelic 2 the Core.

“This song, by the way, is for America,” Feldman, who was dressed in white and gold, told host Tamron Hall before performing. “We’re at a time right now when the world needs to focus, really, on peace and love and tolerance, especially with all the bullying. So, this is about the government. This is about the race. This is about the United States.”

Feldman also addressed the backlash to his “Go For It” performance on Today last month and said the kind words he received from Pink, Kesha, Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson, and his friends helped him deal with the “bullies.”

“I’m not letting the bullies get to us,” he said, explaining why he returned to TODAY. “A lot of people get hate in the beginning because we’re doing something new — it hasn’t been done before. But, it’s all about innovation and being an artist, and we can’t be afraid to share our art.”
