Was talking with some buds yesterday about the whole thing of whether or not we should seperate art from their artists, specifically thinking about artists who are or were terrible people or did terrible things. The more I think about it, the less I think we should. Anytime we support the artists (not just monetarily), we in some way contribute to this culture that turns a blind-eye to injustice and to the suffering of others. Yes it’s possible to enjoy a song and still advocate against paedophilia, domestic violence, racism, etc. but the person is still associated to that thing we like. And I could be wrong, but it feels like at least subconsciously that makes us a little less critical of artists and their actions.
