Entertainers entertaining

There are a number of entertainers whose professional efforts I often enjoy but whose political views I distain. One such is Cher...

Somebody, somewhere, turns off the lights
Somebody all alone faces the night
You've got to be strong when you're out on your own
Cause sooner or later, we all sleep alone

Nobody, nowhere, holds the key to your heart
When love's a possession, it'll tear you apart
You may have lovers wherever you roam
But sooner or later, ooh, we all sleep alone

Oh, the young and the young at heart wait
But the wait never ends in the soul
When you feel love is all gone away
Independence has come
And into the night I go

Don't make no promises that I can't keep
I won't be no prisoner of somebody's needs
You may have lovers wherever you roam
But sooner or later, ooh, we all sleep alone
Ooh, we all sleep alone

Yeah, yeah, we all sleep alone, yeah
And I know, And I know how you feel
Like I've taken what you're saying to me
Cause we all sleep alone
Yes, we all sleep alone

*****
And there are others.

Yours?

I grandfathered in Rosanne Cash because she is not real noisy about her views and I have been listening to her since the early 80s. Willie Nelson, OTOH, can FOAD for his part in the sit in to prevent a guy named Horowitz from using his own property. Piss on that old socialist druggie.

I don't really give a hoot about a performers (or anyone's) personal or political opinions.  They are free to think whatever they want.  I'm free to say, "meh.", and walk away.

It's the ones that get psycho or violent when you share your opinions that should just go and protest on the interstate.  Or be helped onto the interstate.

We once heckled Nugent for going off the deep end during a show.

Cher, meh.

Roseanne was one of the greatest unrealized talents of our generation.

For entertainment, though, I still like this:

 

Hey gwahlchmai have you ever watched an old movie titled The Great Race? Great comedy that has the lovely Natalie running around in her skivvies in the midst of a pie fight.

Streisand is one of those too IMHO.
