Hi...<br><br>
I wanted to ask you, what do you think when an actor / actress, singer, painter, or anyone "artistic" wears clothes of animal skin ... Do you lose interest in their work?<br><br>
I recently saw this photo<br><a href="http://www.maliciousglee.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/joanna-newsom.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.maliciousglee.com/site/wp...nna-newsom.jpg</a><br>
this girl is a singer, her name is Joanna Newsom ... And I was so sad that I deleted all her music from my computer ...<br><br>
Did this happen to you before?<br><br>
I love her music, but when I hear it I just remember that sad picture ...<br><br>
Do you think it's right?<br>
what would you do?<br>
Ignore what you saw because her work is one thing, and what you saw is another?<br>
Or is it something that should be completely reprimanded?

I get kind of grossed out by it... like Lady Gaga's meat dress... blegh!<br><br>
I guess I don't let it get to me though, because I pretty much assume that most people eat meat unless I hear otherwise, and wearing leather and stuff isn't all that different (furs, on the other hand, are a whole new level of icky, especially in that pic where you could almost see its face <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> )

i feel like what she's wearing is more gross than say leather EWWWWWWWW.<br><br>
even tho leather is CLEARLY animal skin so me saying it's not as gross is kinda hypocritical (not like i wear either though... obviously)<br>
but that is like BAM!!!!!!!!! DEAD ANIMAL IN YOUR FACE!

Depends on how much I like them.<br><br>
If it's someone I kind of like, then I abandon them, or say bad things about them.<br><br>
If someone I'm totally smitten with ends up doing that, I usually just get over it.

If it something that's an everyday common cultural norm for omni's like eating meat or wearing leather, I don't necessarily lose interest because I would have to lose interest in everyone to be consistant, but if someone does something as blatantly disconnected from animal cruelty as wearing that hideous monstrosity on her head, then yes, if I had any interest in Newsom to start with I would lose it rapidly.

Fur really rubs me the wrong way. I was always disgusted by it even as a young kid. I'm confident that even if I'd lived in a time when fur was completely socially acceptable it would still bother me. To me a coyote, wolf, fox, etc is no different than a dog. I REALLY don't understand how some people can look at a fox and think, "That would look good on me!" and then look at a dog and think about how much you'd like to cuddle and play with it. It just makes absolutely no sense. It may be irrational of me, but I disapprove of fur MUCH more so than wearing leather because the hypocrisy is just so much more blatant.<br><br>
As for what I would do if an artist I liked wore fur...I'm not too sure. I don't think I would <i>absolutely refuse</i> to watch a movie just because some idiot who wears fur off-screen was in it. Although I probably wouldn't go out of my way to watch the movie. As for music, if I really liked the jerk's music that much, I'd probably just find a way to download it illegally. (which isn't something that I do...though I would be severely tempted in this case) Although I guess to get my point across it would make more sense to write a letter or e-mail explaining that the artist wouldn't be getting any of my money and why.

I don't. Usually thats because I don't bother looking up the musicians I'm listening to...and on the few occasions when I have seen photos of them, they aren't wearing fur. Leather....I dunno. I assume most people wear shoes that are made with animals in some way. So although I don't condone it, you have to actually research/care in order to wear vegan shoes. And I don't think omni's would bother

<p>Personally, I think it's gross.   I mean, just knowing the process of making a fur coat is disturbing enough, but to have  the actual extremities of the poor animal hanging by your face is just very disgusting to me.</p>
<p>If I were a fan from the beginning, I couldn't look at her the same way. The little girlie voice and the harp  do not go with the image of this person with the dead animal hanging off of her head. I just don't "get it"!  Looks kind of sinister to me!</p>

Well one thing I don't have to do is delete Lady Gagas music because I never could stand her even before that detestable garb! Some people desperately need attention- good musicians should get by with just their talent sans the gimmicks and shock value.-really..how gross does she look?
