David Bowie was the first HGATR so there was so precedent for scoring. And I think I said at the time that despite everything he meant too much to me to not give him a 5, despite what he had done. It was true, at the time… but since then I’ve definitely felt more detached and less interested in his work, to the point where I’d give him a much lower score if the thread had taken place now.
Eventually an artists’ actions will drive a wedge between you and their art, but, it doesn’t always happen overnight. Sometimes it takes years to disentangle yourself.
