That's always a fine line. And I think it's a different call for everyone. If an artist isn't used to be an outsider, it's going to be hard for them to really go against the grain of what their audience expects.

Personally, I've got plenty of outsider experience. So nearly everything about my persona is designed to play against stereotype. It doesn't make it easier because people don't have an easy slot to put you in. But it does make you more memorable.
