I guess dance moves and hair extensions are just as important though.



There, I feel better now.




Great Point, I totally agree. I never understood why they took the Grammy. Atleast give it to the people who actually sang. That whole thing really showed how the music industry is all about image, nothing else. If that groups music was the best out of any new artist that year, give them the Grammy. But that whole ordeal was surreal.

About Vanilla Ice, I can't believe how people totally dis him now. I mean these same people were jumping up and down singing his praises when he first came out. I can dis him for that movie and later releases, but "Ice, Ice, Baby" was...too cold. I admit it right here and now. I liked "Ice, Ice Baby". Actually the remix for "Play that Funky Music" was cool. That was about it for his songs that I liked, but I can still enjoy those songs now.

You mean apart from the fact that she's the musical equivalent of Stephanie McMahon? By which I mean over emotive whiner with a voice that makes fingernails on a chalkboard sound good!

I have to agree with rte here. Who cares about the artist, it's the art that matters. If I stopped listening to everyone whose lifestyle/image bothered me that would eliminate 95% of what I listen to!

NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

I agree there completely. While I half-heartedly try to keep up SORTA with pop culture, and who's going what, I never let it stop me from listening to their music. I know I dropped a joke about Nick Carter being arrested a few weeks ago - but I roll my eyes when I hear fans say "I don't believe in nothin' no more because of him". Of course teenagers seem to be the most prone to this, but that doesn't let everyone off the hook.

I don't think I've ever found myself caring much about any news item - simply because I don't care enough about any artist to be upset. That's me though - I'd venture to say I'm in the minority and alot of people out there would be unbelievably hurt if their favorite artist did something they disapprove of.

Good points, but would you guys stop listening to good music if the artist did something so heinous that it would be hard to ignore? There have been some cases recently in the news where peadophilia is involved (I'm thinking Gary Glitter and Jonathan King {although not my taste in the first place the point bears out} and that one other guy with the suspect/unproven case I probably shouldn't mention by name in case I'm libelling him, I'm sure you know who it is). Good music or not, and yes the crime doesn't affect the music, there's no way I'd put money in the pockets of those scumbags, or want to listen to anything they'd produced. Fair enough, drugs crimes or lesser charges shouldn't factor in here, but surely there is a point where the artist and the music are irrevocably linked and attitude to one should affect the other.

I don't know how I would react if someone whose art I enjoyed did something like the things you describe. I do know that you still hear "Rock and Roll Part 2" at lots of arenas and the like these days though. I have a feeling I would still purchase such albums, and rationalize it in my head with the thought that really the artist only makes about a buck or so off my purchase anyhow.



There, I feel better now.

    >It's one thing to be an "act" like the Ramones or Marilyn Manson or Alice Cooper or GWAR where you're putting on a show and the audience KNOWS you're not what you "claim" you are -- all the members of The Ramones REALLY didn't share the same last name -- but they go along with it for the sheer entertainment of it all(hence your Dudleyville reference).


What do you mean Marilyn Manson isn't what he "claims" to be??? ;)

Because the world NEEDED a "hardstyle" Roxette remake - who's BUYING this crap?! ...oh. Say no more. Geez, you'd think Madonna would have enough savvy to just remake it HERSELF.
