"People don't like me," he contends. "The industry doesn't like me. I have that sort of shit that follows me around. While some people definitely respect me in the home country, I'm treated with caution in the music industry. Australia's a funny country. There's a lot of shame. The things I talk about have never been talked about. They've been swept under the carpet. I stand up for some sticky issues because that's what I do; it's part of my thing. And that threatens people."

So maybe Rudd's existence isn't quite as charmed as it appears on the surface, but he's learning to make it better.

"You can't do everything, and I don't force myself to," he explains. "I let things flow, and the right things come at the right time. I can't sort of fully help everything all the time. And I think that's what I was doing. I was burning the candle at both ends doing a lot for country and culture. So indirectly, I was suffering, and what I realized was that I can't handle everything. There's been a lot of change in my life, and I'm focused now on doing one thing at a time."
