I've been thinking a lot about this issue of reconciling the artist with the art itself -- where do you draw the line? In the case of t.A.T.u., I don't appreciate their history of obnoxious behaviour, but that doesn't stop me from loving and sharing their music. When it comes to Chris Brown, though, as much as I really, really like both of his newest singles, I would feel mighty uncomfortable promoting them here. Is it possible to look at the art on its own merit and appreciate it, no matter who created it? Food for thought.
Lena and Yulia's version:
And the original Smiths. Morrissey rocks some AWESOME moves you guys.
