That I'm his number one fan
But its like you booing from the stands
His dad is booing him while his mom is trying to cheer him on.
Even though his mother is supportive (his #1 fan) his dad’s lack of support (booing) is taking a toll. This connects with the “why don’t you give him a chance” line because people tend to boo performers they don’t like when they get on stage often without giving them a chance to actually perform. In this case, the stage MYH is on is ‘life’ and his mom wants the dad to stop booing and give MYH a chance to succeed.
