  • Yup, it's my right to refuse, besides, Donna Summer also never supported LGBT, so I agree with her.

    • surprisingly enough she had many gay fans and her song "I Feel Love" is actually a gay anthem...

    • Show All
    • Not true. She explained the false accusation in one of the interviews, and she said she speaks to her gay friends.

    • @MrDetermined Nah, she said that only because she wanted them to continue buying her music records & tapes... it's purely for economic reasons.

  • No.
    I'm not a fan of homosexuality but I have great respect for Elton John, Freddy Mercury and Neil Patrick Harris. So anything they release that is of good quality, I will listen to.

    Heck even for movies/tv shows, George Takei and John Barrowman are amazing actors.
    What they do off screen is irrelevant as with all over actors.

  • No, that has nothing to do with the persons talent or them as an artist. That's kind of like saying " would you refuse to listen to a certain artist if your morals didn't match up with theirs? Like for instance, the Rolling Stones because Mick Jaggar reportedly slept with 4,000 women". It's kind of the same thing, I don't have to agree with their lifestyle but their lifestyle has nothing to do with their music. So, I don't have to agree with it. If I like their music, nothings going to change that.

  • That would be a pointless idea. Yes, I would LOVE to starve myself of the enjoyment I get listening to this great band or artist just because they're different. (Sarcasm) The only way that would even affect the artist is if you got an entire rally of people to stop listening, which I highly doubt you could do unless you were in a highly narrow minded community.

  • No I wouldn't. Music is very important in my life and I love so many artists! I don't care if they are gay, straight, bisexual, transgender or heterosexual. Their sexual preference plays no part of their ability as an artist.

  • I don't disagree with homosexuality.

    I do however disagree with much older guys dating/having sex with much younger underage girls and stop listening to their music after finding out about it

    • holy crap i listen to some old songs from R Kelly right now... wot a coincidence huh?

    • Haha, and those were probably in the days he got exposed too lol. Sleeping with little kids.

    • it's basically from his 90s era... down low... half on a baby... etc... :)

  • Of course not. Their sexual preferences have no bearing on their art or talent. If I like what they are creating, I'll listen to them.

  • What does a person's sexual orientation have to do with their art? Elton John ROCKS, and he is a LEGEND!! So what if he is gay, or whatever? why do you care if you like what they create?
    How shallow, judging someone's artistic contribution, based on their sexual orientation!!

  • I will refuse. Because then I can tell people and start flame wars while avoiding music I wouldn't have enjoyed anyway.

    Except Lion King's Circle of Life. There's an exception to all rules.

  • i could care less what a person's sexual orientation is, as long as their music is good i'll listen

    seems really bizarre to not listen to something you like simply because of a person's sexual preference.

  • I don't know. I guess I probably wouldn't refuse. I didn't know Joshua Kadison was gay, but I still listen to his music. Just because I like his music doesn't mean I need to like him. And just because I like him (if I did) doesn't mean I need to like his music.

  • No because that's silly. As someone who's always been surrounded by music and everything you can possibly think of that might have anything to do with music, I have always been unbiased towards who I listen to. I listen to Natalia Kills, and her personality definitely isn't that great, so...
