Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda tweeted a new update about his personal life on Twitter, and said that he’s much happier nowadays.

He wrote:

“Social media has been wasting my time and making me angry for too long, so I’ve cut out a lot of it for the time being. A few minutes a day is enough. I’m much happier. 😃

Have a nice night.”

During a recent interview with Rock Antenne, he talked about current state of Linkin Park. He said:

“There’s a couple of things. One, we all thrive making and performing music, and so to not do that, I think, is hard. It definitely would be hard for me. I didn’t wanna spend the last year not doing it, and I knew that the band was not ready to do it, so I wanted to go do it myself.

Similarly, though, I know the other guys, they love to get onstage, they love to be in the studio, and so to not do that would be — I don’t know — almost unhealthy. If doing that means that we need to have some other people in the mix in order to do it and do it well, then we would do that.

And the other thing is, out of respect to the fans. I think there are many fans that want to continue to see the guys onstage and wanna continue to hear the music, and if we put a show up online, they’ll wanna come.

So as long as that connection and interest is there, I think that’s a driving force to figure it out. But, like I said before, it has to happen naturally. I’m not running out and putting up ‘vocalist wanted’ posters. I think that’s wholly inappropriate and probably a terrible idea.”
