Don’t Blame the Artist

Don’t Blame the Artist

“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.” –
—  Martin Luther King Jr.

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” –
—  Martin Luther King Jr.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” –
—  Martin Luther King Jr.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” –
—  Martin Luther King Jr.

It has come to our attention that some people are now boycotting Michael’s music because of the difficulties he reportedly experienced during the time that he left Sony  and at the time of the release of his last album Invincible.

This campaign does not support the boycotting of Michael’s music.

Why blame the artist for the difficulties he experienced at the time.

As far as we are aware Michael never said that people should boycott his music. He in fact promoted what was his last studio album by attending personal signings of the CD which we understand was rare, and by discussing his intentions for Invincible ie short films in the GetMusic radio show.

Michael stated which tracks where his favourite and further said that Speechless would be one of three songs that he would sing is he was limited in the future to only singing just 3 songs.

If you did not boycott Michael’s music prior to 2009 or any Michael Jackson products why would you do so now.

It is the 10th Anniversary of his last album, its 100% Michael Jackson, an album he from many accounts fought for its success, an album he himself pushed for absolute perfection and spent years producing it, getting the best people to contribute to it.

Surely we should celebrate a beautiful album that was underrated by the music press and now shunned by some of his fans.

Don’t Blame the Artist.
