fucked up artists
    #4389500 - 07/10/05 12:34 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Weird, how certain artists have been so influential and seem to be so genious.... yet they are capable of such fucked up things:

Allen Ginsberg: One of the greatest modern poets/writers, yet a staunch supporter of NAMBLA, which supports pedophelia (did I spell that right?)

Jimi Hendrix: Awesome music, peace supporter, yet was known to beat up women who chose to hook up with his band mates over him

Genesis P. Orridge, member of Throbbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions got breast implants (he's a man). Their early performance art was also fucked up; consisting of live pornographic material. One of their works consisted solely of soiled diapers and tampons.. mmmm mmm mmm

I guess you're looking for normal musicians that have fucked-up things about them, whereas this whole band was always pretty fucked up :smirk:

There is a fine line between genius and insanity, many cross back and forth over said line.

And how can we forget people like Van Gogh, who cut off his own ear and gave it to a prostitute, seemingly out of some frustration with Gauguin...and ManRay, who took nude pictures of pre-teen girls...and Michael Jackson! I don't even have to say anything else about him.

I don't call beating a chick's face in witha brick (hendrix) and advocating sex with 5 year old boys (ginsberg) a tiny imperfection... I call those chemical imbalances.

The "better" musicians in my opinion, have these problems because... the "odd" brain chemistry that enables them to create is also responsible for the negative things and problems they endure.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

there are many people who are fucked up in this world. some just happened to become very accomplished artists. insanity does not create a genius.

a difference would be that the fucked up geniuses tend to be more socially accepted for such things.

Dude that shit about Ginsberg supporting nambla isn't true.

What happened was he wrote something supporting some of their free speech rights or something. He was not a member, and did not defend their views. Don't spread those lies around.

Artists are fucked up for the exact same reason they are brilliant. Their genius is inseperable from their insanity. No good artist is perfectly sane.

You better let Wikipedia know that, then.

Allen Ginsberg was also a member of the North American Man/Boy Love Association, a group that seeks the social acceptance of pederasty and the abolishment of Age of Consent legislation. In 1994 the International Lesbian and Gay Association successfully banished all connections to the group in order to gain consultative status in the United Nations. Despite opposition from Ginsberg himself and modern gay rights founder Harry Hay, ILGA refused the group membership. Ginsberg said he supported NAMBLA's right to free speech because the hysteria over pederasty reminded him of the hysteria over gayness itself while he was growing up. When accused of supporting child molestation by a group of college students, Ginsberg defended his membership proclaiming "Attacks on NAMBLA stink of politics, witchhunting for profit, humorlessness, vanity, anger and ignorance - I'm a member of NAMBLA because I love boys too -- everybody does, who has a little humanity." In later interviews shortly before his death, he announced he would no longer attend gay pride events unless NAMBLA was allowed to march.

I got no problem with freedom of speech. JOining and supporting NAMBLA for me is the same as saying, "fuck it... we should be allowed to molest little kids who don't know anything about sex".

As for what darkstar said. Genius, is a line seldomly crossed back over. My2sense. Always liked EBTG. A very out of place male, and a into place female making music. He for some part was having her sing his lyrics over his music. Point being. Chaaahh!.
Hooray for Nadja for letting her really express a point.
