It's just sad how much she fell off the crazy train. That's ridiculous.

Cue the, "My First Amendment rights are being trampled upon!"

When you turned into a religion-infused bigot, don't be surprised when people react a certain way.

I didn't care about her last week, why should I care about her now that she opened her flap?
/Which one doesn't matter...
//I still believe she's more butch than most boys anyways...

Michellely, I'm shocked.

People who like your "product" are free to buy it.  People who do not like your "product" are free to not buy it. If you are dependent on people buying your product or paying admission to your shows you must think about the ramifications of your actions and words.  Welcome to capitalism.

Keep it going Shocked. All you're doing is making the homophobes look like crazed loons, which is hilarious and awesome.

She and Nuge should go on tour

So she sounds like a normal homophobe?

Oh I really hope that strange mask was something to protect her voice and not a further sign of complete lunacy. Someone get her her meds, please!

Ohh yea, but at least she's making the headlines as one.

She clearly failed to realize that the majority of her audience are not right wing christian bigots.

Now if someone like Kid Rock made this statement, there would be no "controversy" because it's exactly what we would expect from him.

So I wanted to actually see if Kid Rock weighed in on the issue. Turns out he did:

"I'm supporting Mitt Romney, but as much as I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, let gay people get married if they want... That's not the farking issue. And I think a woman should have a right to choose if she wants to have an abortion or not -- that's not up to anybody else.

Well to be fair, his music sucks so I hate him. But the point wasn't that he didn't say something but that he could.

Camera phone footage of someone playing guitar with face covered, onscreen for 10 seconds...
is proof of anything how?
 
2013-03-29 02:06:34 PM
well, at least she had the good sense to show up wearing a full body condom.

You know, until this whole thing started I don't think I'd even thought about Michelle Shocked for years.
So in a sense, it's a winning strategy...

Yep.  Become an entertainer, have your career peak, and then start to fade into obscurity.  Join a cult, become increasingly crazy, get your name back in the headlines.  Worked for Prince, Isaac Hayes, and Mel Gibson.

Michelle, stating your opinion has consequences. That's why the founding fathers wanted people with unpopular opinions to cultivate land they could live off of. They knew that concentrations of capital naturally breed fascism.
p.s. you are wrong so don't blame anyone but yourself this time.

i don't know about her politics (or care, really) but you'd think somebody involved in music as long as she has would have taken a guitar lesson or two.

Jesus, Michelle. You said some stupid shiat, and people decided they didn't want to listen to you anymore. You weren't arrested. You weren't fined. You weren't caned. Some of the venues you were scheduled to perform at canceled your shows because it would have been bad business. Stop crying about how your First Amendment rights have been violated.

There are just some people who don't quite understand that the freedom of speech does not come with the freedom from consequences for said speech.

When you go off on an anti-gay rant, make sure you are in Independence, Kansas, not San Francisco, California.  It matters.

I'm hoping she never forgets the moment her career died as she drives from Holiday Inn to Holiday Inn to do buffet shows in flyover country.

It was a "Sinead O'Connor ripping up a picture of the pope on live TV" moment.  The only difference is O'Connor had a career while Michelle Shocked had an indie career with a small but dedicated fan base.  And now that fan base is melting away at a brisk pace.  Who wants to pay $20 to hear someone rant about "the evils of homosexuality" and Jesus except for bible beaters?

I expect to hear about her being interviewed on "The 700 Club" real soon.

But she's still too weird to be embraced by the fundies. If Lady Gaga came out as an anti-Semite the National Alliance wouldn't rush to embrace her, she'd just loose a lot of her fan base.

Well, that and Sinead O'Connor had a legitimate reason. Granted, she communicated it very poorly and without any indication of her reason, but she was attempting to highlight actual abuse and the fact that she was a genuine victim. It wasn't until years later when she went amusingly off the rails and publicly advertised to find a man who wasn't afraid of the "difficult brown."

It's not quite the same as showing up out of nowhere to declare your bigotry. Had O'Connor torn the pope's picture while wearing an orange sash and playing a flute, then they would be equivalent.

No, the difference is that O'Connor felt she had a legitimate beef with the Catholic church and all of the killing that has happened in Ireland.

Count me as one who always thought she had a very legitimate beef. People freaked out at the wrong person.

As she has the right to express herself, so does everyone else. No biggie.

She has free speech.  No one is required to listen to her mindless rants, though.
