Re: “Cee-Lo v. John Lennon: To "religion" or not to "religion"

Once you start telling artists when it is acceptable to take liberties with pop songs. you take away the very thing that makes American art what it is, not to mention turn everything Lennon's generation stood for on its head. I mean there are some things that I don't want to see changed, yet, as a participant in a society that aspires toward modernism and democracy, I respect that they can say it, just not in my house. I for one, am glad to see someone resisting the overbearing"customer is always right" aesthetic that has turned a lot of live performances into karaoke. To quote Frank Zappa's anti censorship speech to Congress in '85: "The $8.98 purchase price does not entitle you to a kiss on the foot from the composer or performer in exchange." I can understand how hard it is, after a life lived resisting and questioning authority to realize that you have become the establishment (I'm 50 and teach middle school - tell ME about it). But the hypocrisy I hear from a lot of the people outside this thread is amazing. I mean, I'm running into people who supported Sinead O'Connor through her "fight the real enemy" purgatory that are absolutely incensed about this. which side of the Looking Glass are we on here?
