He only answered a question among many more in a long interview. His fans basically know his political views. And when you watch that part, you can clearly see, that he was very carefully choosing his words.
Yeah it is not as if he is the only pop or rock star to be political. Still he is an easy target I guess.
I don’t think, I would call him an „easy target“. In this interview he was actually very diplomatic. And that’s how he usually reacts to political questions in interviews.
Compared to Brian Adam is very cautious, when he‘s talking about politics.
(Apart from one or two „outbreaks“ on social media, when he got really angry about something.)
I am guessing JLP meant my posts about him. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think so.
AL getting political again and my saying some of his fans won't like or be hsppy about it, well it's true,I think you said it yourself when he spoke about gun control he lost a few fans. . Personally, I used to toll my eyes when Bono from U2 used to get political and "preach" at times. Really, Bono has been quite overbearing and dare I say pushy in his views sometimes.
Yes, I know AL isn't the only one to speak about politics, but we are discussing AL in here. Want me to bring up other artists political views and stances in here? Brian, Bono, Elton John, anyone?
I think AL handled the question very well. I almost wish he would do more of this than the silly advice he gave for dating ot was it relationships in the Glamour piece recently. That was just fluff, no substance.
I'm more annoyed with Brian for getting political and his major rant a few weeks back than anything AL said about Trump etc. And yes, I posted comments about Brian's rant too in case there are any doubts about that.
( Seems like I'm the easy target here on QOL lately, and it's gone beyond simple disagreements
