I'm Tired of Politics Overtaking Award Shows

For me, music is the great escape. There is so much bad news in the world as it is, I don’t want my music getting mixed with that. When I turn my music on, it is usually to block out everything else, and relax.

I do understand that it is also a form of expression so sometimes people use it to say what they are thinking, feeling, or trying to change. But I wish somehow we could keep politics out of it on a grand scale.

If you want politically charged music, you can find it, but let’s not force it on the masses.

Last night watching the Grammy’s I felt like politics were being pushed on me. There were issues I believed in, some I disagreed with, and others I didn’t care about at all. I just wish we could have let the music do the talking on a night that was really intended to celebrate just that.

I am not saying I will boycott the Grammy’s or anything like that, I am simply asking that when it comes to the music we all love, we can just enjoy it without all the noise reminding us of bad news.

Off my soapbox…
