Since Superbowl halftime performance, Lady Gaga music sales soar like crazy… will she keep politics out of music from now on?

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.

Brock defends Madonna’s – Superbowl Halftime performance…

During the Halftime Superbowl which had the legendary Queen of Pop, Madonna, performing with Cirque Du Soleil, feedback of the performance started filling up my news feed in facebook. Mostly negative feedback. People saying hateful things about Madonna.

No matter what you think of the Madonna performance, she didn’t get hired for the Superbowl for nothing. She had quite the legendary career. In order for a band or an artist to get the opportunity to perform the Superbowl, they must have a legendary career. That’s what Madonna has. A legendary career, so she is qualified enough to get the Superbowl gig. I think she deserves it.

I think Cirque Du Soleil was interesting. Madonna has always been well known to perform on stage with a bunch of dancers, she’s been doing that stuff for years. Even if Madonna’s performance was lip syncing for sure, of course, (pretty much all Superbowl live performances from the past were lip synced, anyway), you still have to hand it to her.

She did really good dancing up there. I was pretty impressed with her dancing skills. She still has it with the dancing. Not bad for a 53 year old woman, right? She was doing some pretty physical and technical dance moves up there. She also looked really good up there too. She did look a little nervous, but she pulled it off.

I thought she did a good job. She didn’t do anything sexual and she didn’t do any lesbian stuff or anything like that. She didn’t do anything stupid or controversial just to get media attention. She concentrated on the performance and music part of things.

She’s all done with the sexual stuff, ’cause that’s not her anymore. She maybe crazy and wild in her younger years, but she’s too old for that stuff now. No matter what you think of that performance, she still has it with the dancing. Madonna is an entertainer, and a rock & pop artist. I did like her song selections tonight too.

I’ve always respected Madonna. Even though I don’t like her current music today, I’ll always like her classic stuff more. People should give her the respect for that performance ’cause she certainly got mine. She did a great job!

Report: So Faith Hill and Jen Hudson gets slammed for lip synching at Superbowl, everyone thinks Springsteen didn’t???

Another reason to call the Springsteen performance at the Superbowl an embarrassment. This article confirms that Springsteen sang live for real, but the E Street band were fake playing their instruments.

More on it here:

Wouldn’t surprise me if all Springsteen concerts were played like this.
