According to Elton John Jesus loved the man gravy. Lolz. Who even thinks about stuff like that?
“I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems,” he told Parade. “On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.”
Ok even i feel weird about posting this. If Jesus was gay, so what? I have to admit i would find it kind of a great thing. I would love to see what the God hates Fags group would do. Jesus..He’s so hot right now.
Never one to keep his opinions to himself, the Rocket Man has waded into cyberspace with all guns blazing.
He claims it is destroying good music, saying: “The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff.
“Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK but it doesn’t bode well for long-term artistic vision.
“It’s just a means to an end.
“We’re talking about things that are going to change the world and change the way people listen to music and that’s not going to happen with people blogging on the internet.
“I mean, get out there — communicate.
“Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet.
“Let’s get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging.
“I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span.
“There’s too much technology available.
“I’m sure, as far as music goes, it would be much more interesting than it is today.”
MY RANT ABOUT ELTON JOHN’S STATEMENT
Does Elton John realize how much money would be lost if we even shutdown the internet for 1 week? Billions!! There would be massive suicide’s, and that’s just from one office building. I agree with Elton that music has gotten shittier but that has nothing to do with the internet. Look at hip hop, some albums in the 90′s were selling 5-10 million copies. In 2006 around.. 1 album sold 1 million copies. The 60 year old record executive now think they know music, sure young adults that has been listening to hip hop all their life really wanna go to the “Candy Shop” or “Shake they’re Laffy Taffy.” If Elton John had his way and the internet was shutdown there would be no way i could keep up with my favorite artists who i wouldn’t of found out about without the internet. And I’m not talking just about hip hop music look at soul/r&b and rock. So in closing on my little rant i would like to say TURN YOUR RADIO OFF, THE RECORD COMPANIES PAY THE DJ TO PLAY THAT SHIT! Elton said if we shut the internet down music will get better. I say if we turn the radio off the music will get better.
