Its a little saddening to see so much hatred towards someone just because they made the choice to use drugs. That was her business...yeah, she was in
the spotlight and daaaaared to make a song about it...but she was a human being, with genuine wants, desires and needs. Let he who is without
sin...yadda yadda yadda. Hell...Americans just had a cokehead pres serve two terms, lol. You are not job, you are not your car, you are not your
possessions...and you are not the substances you ingest. You are just a lifeform living out its existence through a series of choices. And every thing
isnt for every one. the important thing is to respect others, and ourselves enough to not judge too harshly. People like to use "Rehab" as a tool
to judge her and yet forget very important lines from the song....
"didnt get a lot in class, but I know it dont come in a shot glass..."
"I dont ever want to drink again. I just..I just need a friend"
She knew damn well what she was doing and why. We cope with our demons in different ways and she wasnt putting herself out there so that she could be
judged...she was putting herself out there because she had music in her soul and other than the substances, I bet it did a LOT to soothe her torment.
Its not about whether you liked her music either...there are plenty of so-called greats I think are trash, so? I still respect music as an artform and
as an extension of that, can appreciate them as artists. They make efforts to keep a beautiful thing alive...music. Some voices carry for a long time,
some are short lived but make a huge impact...and now there is one less note in a collective song. Even if we know another will take its place its
okay to enjoy it for what it was...warts and all.
