Admittedly Lady Gaga did keep politics out of music at her Superbowl performance for the most part even though she managed to sneak a few things in, I’ll admit that she did do a good job keeping politics out of music. Will Gaga keep politics out of music from now on, now that her music sales are soaring like crazy?
I think it’s a possibility she will. You see in music, when you want to have a fan base you can’t divide your fan base to liberal vs. conservative if you know what I mean. We can’t have music like that. You need to attract music fans of all types regardless of political views so in order for a music artist to attract a lot of fans (all types of fans), you must keep politics out of music.
Who knows though, sooner or later Gaga keeping politics out of music won’t last and she could get back into her liberal bullshit soon enough, don’t be surprised. If Gaga wants respect as an artist she should keep politics out of music. Hear that Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young??? Yeah, I’m talking to both of you guys.
I’m even thinking about doing the same. Should I quit talking politics and focus on music? Might be a good idea and I almost thought about doing that in the past. You can’t attract listeners if you’re going to keep up the political bullshit. I probably won’t give up politics for good but I’ll try to simmer it down some. Not sure. Too many local bands and artists around the Albany area are pretty horrible with their liberal politics and I wish all of them would knock it the fuck off. Music is no place for politics.
I stopped supporting many famous bands ’cause they won’t cut their left-wing political garbage: Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Springsteen, Neil Young, etc. Bands and artists that I used to love and admire. Not anymore, though.
I guess Gaga did make the point that artists should shut up and sing. If she can continue to keep politics out of music for good then she might win my respect back. I think she possibly will keep politics out of music now that her music sales are going sky high. Other music artists should take note. If you want to attract more listeners and more fans then stop the political bullshit. I’m kind of thinking about doing the same.
