We all have music artists that we love nearly unconditionally but through a long career there are a lot of twist and turns the artist will take. If you follow them you will see a ton of different artistic decisions they will take! Artist not only create who they are musically but also in their image and every decision they make that is accessible to the public. Sometimes these are nearly indefensible and you just end up rubbing your forehead, shake your head and say "Why?" when the artist you respect do something so bizarre it leaves you babbling like an idiot when you would like to defend it out of loyalty to the artist! :****: I'll leave out the easy ones like Kanye West and everything he says or does in public :****: but my best example comes from my favorite example is from my second favorite artist, Tori Amos! I bought her Boys For Pele c.d. and it grew on me until I was enamored and had to buy everything I could obtain that she made! But it also had this photo:

:omg:

:wtf:

I saw this and made the mistake of letting my friend check out the booklet. This was in high school so I had even less verbal skills to defend it as "art"! I mean, seriously, it's a PIG SUCKING ON A ******! Still try to block that move out of my head. Everything else this eccentric queen of my music love affair has done has been perfect IMO but this is my WTF moment with her. To make matters worse my friend exposed the picture to my family so anythie I would use Tori as an example about what's right with music they would go "Isn't that the girl with a pig on her ***?" Really, what can someone say to that? :****:

What are your examples?

Queen had been on a roll. News Of The World, Jazz, Live Killers, and The Game were all good albums.

Did you at least appreciate Under Pressure?

Or Peter Gabriel

Was it embarrassing when Peter Gabriel did it?

Dammit Lynch I was just about to point at my avatar! :heheh:

Although you do have a point S&S, wearing women's clothing isn't out of the ordinary as far as progressive rock goes, therefore it isn't embarrasing for them :D

Although on the other hand, the same man's flower costume always cracks me up!
