Can you separate the art from the artist?

Sure. Except for Jacko. He's not an artist...

That is unless you consider sleeping with 12 year old boys to be an art form.

Of course, art exists by itself. An anonymous painting is still art. But giving credit to the creator of the artform would be nice.

No, because I don't know art.

But what in the hell is there a picture of Michael for?

Yes, but i have the opinion that art should look like the object thats painted. I cant stand all that abstract nonsense

i think so

Sure, but I don't always agree with societies idea of 'art.'

I wonder what would happen if Michael got punched in the face.

^ His nose may very well fall off.

I think what this question is really trying to ask is "Would you still buy Michael Jackson's records even though he is a pedophile?"

I wopuldn't buy a Jacko album, I'd find a way to get it for free. No royalties for you, child molester. Off the Wall, Thriller and some Jackson 5 stuff are classics, though.

Absolutely - good music is good music, no matter who made it. I don't have to support the artist to support the music.

thats the only way i can hold on to music because you know that your favorite band will end up disappointing you somehow in the long run

There are a number of movie stars who's lifestyle I detest, but who's acting I admire.

I'm having a little trouble seperating Mel Gibbson from his acting, however. Probably because his "Passion of Christ" movie is relativly new. I'll have to watch Braveheart again, I suppose, to get the ultra-conservative right-wing Christian taste out of my mouth.

One of my favorite songs to sing at weddings (Schubbert's "Ave Maria") is by a guy who slept around with both men and women. It was outlawed in the church for quite some time. I guess if people hadn't learned to seperate art from the artist, then I wouldn't get to sing it.

Yes, Woody Allen is good example, I personally to care for his lifestyle, but love his movies. :)

In some cases, yes.
