Most of my enjoyment with music comes from what they remind me of so it's kinda hard for me to listen to music if they just remind me of news articles about how the artist abused his wife or something similar even if the song is catchy.
Though, I'm not suggesting that if you do listen to music made by an artist who does shitty things that you support those shitty things or are a shitty person. If you can separate the art from the artist, that's fine, just understand that I can't.

It's a difficult choice to make. I think Tim Schafer is an absolute hack who can't be trusted with $5 to grab a loaf of bread from the corner store, but Psychonauts is still one of my favourite games of all time.
