The only thing more interesting than what happens on stage is what happens off of it.
For the most part, we the fans are not privy to what goes down behind the scenes. Some artists share BTS videos, but many of them are edited into oblivion, anyway. That’s why candid off-stage videos of artists are so, so precious.
Check them out below.
