I hope I'm not starting a ****storm, but I'm really curious about this subject. I've found over the years that artists I used to like, I now cannot stand after I hear some of the bile that pours out of their mouths regarding issues of the day. Music that I used to love, I now shun or delete from the old iPod just because I get so sick of hearing these people. It makes me wonder how actors, musicians, and pretty much anyone else who makes their living from public opinion can say and do such idiotic things. You're going to alienate at least some of your current and potentially future audiences. Am I off base here?
