These artistic cadre have definitely made an incredible mark in the world- often regarded as unparalleled and distinct artists that have repeatedly topped music charts. Amid sexual abuse accusations and confrontations circulating around, fans and some music conglomerates unrelenting belief is that "these sui generis artists" should not be totally cancelled- whether music, whether reputation, whether album sales or concerts. Whilst some fans or past fans believe these accsusations should be taken seriously. I mean why would anyone make these sort of accusations in the first place?? and where do we draw the line between art and one's "uncanny behaivour". Fore example, if it were a regular doctor or teacher who misbehaved or exerted improper behavior they would be reprimanded and probably would be shown out the door...not that it only applies to the entertainment industry.
The thing here is that once a powerful person exerts enormous power in this planet, their "behaviour" is often overlooked. Why? Well because according to humanity they have contributed(especially profit)so much and should probably be left alone and unjudged. But who are we to really judge? The most important thing here is to hear the wailings of those strong people who have experienced such discomfort, as well as provide them with a voice to speak their truth. As mentioned earlier, people are not wholly ready to annihilate these "once seen giants" or "rather present giants". However, we need to do what is right and make this planet a safe space, where we can freely voice out our opinions- #letsdoright
