Ike says “it’s water under the bridge. I have no regrets of my life.”

But the Angry Black Woman blogs:

I am tired of people using the “But he was a great artist” line whenever someone who is, otherwise, a despicable human being, writes a song or a book or a poem that they like. I hate to break Godwin’s Law here, but even Hitler wrote some nice poetry and drew some pretty pictures (and he was nice to animals).

    ouch. that hits close to home. i was just remarking to a friend that i found some of jackson browne’s work worthwhile, and was sad that he had been violently abusive in his relationships with women – i don’t pay much attention to the tabloids these days but i have no idea whether he has made any kind of amends for his behavior.

    so, he’s perhaps not a complete waste of protoplasm, but do i throw my vinyl copy of “saturate before using” in the trash can?

    ike turner, well, i have less patience for him, as he never seemed to be sincerely remorseful for his treatment of tina. and she was about a thousand times the artist he was anyway.

    after seeing the film “camille claudel” i can’t stand to look at rodin’s sculptures any more – i know it’s stupid to be so emotionally swayed by a movie’s depiction of a figure from history, but i just couldn’t help it. the guy came off like such a creep, the kind of creep i’ve met all too often in life, and claudel’s story was so tragically unfair, now every time i see “the thinker” or “the lovers” it’s like looking at the scene of a crime.

    and as for hitler – i heard he was teh suXX0rz as a painter and as a poet. i mean, how bad do you have to be to have your application to art school rejected twice?
