Singer Michelle Shocked declares ‘God hates fags’ during San Francisco show

Remaining eleven upcoming concerts cancelled as venues distance themselves from Shocked's anti-gay bigotry
Monday, March 18, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO — Folk singer Michelle Shocked stunned a San Francisco audience on Sunday night after breaking into an anti-gay rant in which she said, “God hates faggots.”

“If someone would be so gracious as to please tweet out, ‘Michelle Shocked just said from stage, God hates faggots.’ Would you do it now?”

Michelle Shocked

Shocked said she lives in fear that gays would be allowed to marry, and said that preachers would be “held at gunpoint and forced to marry the homosexuals.”

The singer’s remarks prompted a walkout by two-thirds of her audience, but even more horrified than the audience were Yoshi’s staffers, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.

The manager, assistant club manager, and sound production engineer who were on duty shut down the show immediately, turning off the lights and cutting off the microphone, said Yoshi’s representative Lisa Bautista. An apology was made to the audience and refunds were offered.

Shocked, a self-proclaimed born again Christian, told the Dallas Voice in 2008 that she believes that homosexuality is a sin, and disputed claims that she was lesbian.

Shocked followed up her performance on Sunday with a tweet that read, “Truth is leading to painful confrontation.”

Yoshi’s had promoted Shocked as “the most sophisticated hillbilly you ever met.”

Update: As of Tuesday evening, all 11 venues remaining on Shocked’s U.S. tour had cancelled her upcoming performances:

HopMonk’s Tavern in Novato, Calif., SPACE in Evanston, Ill., eTown in Boulder, Colo., the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland, Ore., Meander’s Kitchen in Seattle, Cozmic in Eugene, Ore., the Palms Playhouse in Winter, Calif., Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz, Calif., and McCabe’s in Santa Monica, Calif., have all announced or tweeted cancellations.

Update: A tenth venue, Harmony Bar in Madison, Wisc., said Tuesday that Shocked’s May 5 appearance has been canceled “by the artist.”

Update: On Tuesday afternoon, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival announced it had cancelled Shocked’s participation in the event.

A Change.org petition is now targeting international venues to cancel Shocked’s concerts overseas.

Shocked has also said she will give a lengthy radio interview within the next few days to talk about the Sunday show in San Francisco.

Editor’s note: Some quotes in this story have been expanded to reflect actual remarks based on an audio recording of the event.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:00pm
  21. Joel, she’s got a decades-strong fan base. She’s been around the block a few times, too, so this is unexpectedly Augustinian of her.

  34. What gives her the right to say anything about the gays, people didn’t pay for that , I know she better look in the mirror and hate that person, because she’s hating the wrong people, and I know because I have a gay son , and I will defend him and the LGBT any day !! I’m glad they shut down the show.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:03pm
  35. nope that will make any sales of her music go down

  44. Who?

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:04pm
  45. I wish she hadn’t done this, because now people will know who she is. It’s the same way Chik-Fil-A got that huge spike in business after coming out as homophobic, she’s going to get a ton of new fans who like her because she’s “edgy” or “ironic” or some bullshit.

    I had never heard of her before this, and I wish I could go back to that.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:04pm
  46. She should have thought twice before she spoke the words especially in San Francisco!

  51. Who? Sounds like someone is looking for relevance. Typical of this type. Its all about me, and ify ou are not paying attention to me, I’ll say something nasty that will be sure to get someones attention. My suggestion…disregard her as a has been and let her fade into history as a fool..

  62. Wrong place to voice hatred. We don’t put up with it here in San Francisco. She should’ve stayed in Utah. Cunt.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:09pm
  63. Further proof, if needed, that bigots are very stupid people.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:09pm
  66. The only possible excuse is that she was on powerful mind-altering drugs.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:09pm
  67. Well considering she played at the gay music fests etc etc and was out at one point, it’s sorta strange….

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:10pm

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm
  71. I’m glad that she got the response she got, massive walk out and the venue shut her down. That’s the end of her career, and she deserves it.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm
  72. I had no idea she was such a hater. She used to have kind of alternate like image in the 80s. Isn’t she the one who was homeless and recorded her first album in a Walkman(80s)?

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm
  73. She’s crazy.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm

  75. Alternative-like

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm
  76. She’s probably self-loathing and thinks by turning hate on her gayness and gays in general, it will put her “right with God” or some other superstitious, religious mumbo-jumbo. But man, this woman pings. And I generally consider my gaydar to be impeccable.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:11pm

  79. Some unattractive non-entity decides to rant in SF about gays…good grief

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:12pm
  80. Here’s a little info called FACT for ya Michelle, God doesn’t hate, God is LOVE. God doesn’t like hate or haters or bigotry which you clearly have displayed. Read the bible, learn the truth and speak the truth. When ppl hate or bully others, they don’t look good doing it and they definitely don’t get a good name from doing it. Having bully or hater for a name is a shame. That’s ok, if you want those names, hey you have earned them. As long as you keep hating and spreading your bigotry, I really don’t see you’re career going very far. Last thing, Don’t ever talk about our loving God that way, you obviously don’t know him well at all. Don’t involve him in you’re hate because he won’t have any part of it. Please worship the demon on your own time, obviously you think like him because he’s hateful.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:13pm
  81. and who is she? never heard of her in my life… so her opinion means absolutely nothing to me.

  84. Probably a repressed lesbian!!

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:13pm
  85. This article leaves a lot to be desired. The content boils down to “Some religious person said something offensive about gays on stage and a lot of people were offended.” That’s nice, but what else is new?

    Why not answer some of the questions the little bit of info raises, like, if she has such deep-seated anti-gay sentiments, why did she perform in San Fran? How and why did the venue book her in the first place since it doesn’t sound like her stance was a surprise, given her background? What sort of folk singer is she? And, as so many people here in the comments are asking, who is she and why should we care?

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:14pm
  86. Brickell I meant (80s)

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:14pm
  87. guess her career isn’t going very far! how illiterate of her! God, doesn’t hate anyone and anyone who thinks so doesn’t understand God..

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:14pm
  88. She definitely has some (probably) literal balls to say that in the city, but seriously, shes probably just doing this for some attention to try and revive whatever career she once had. Maybe I’m young, but I have no idea who she is :p

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:14pm
  89. She totally wants the “P”

  101. and that is the end of her singing career..what a bitch..she lives in fear that the world will be taken over by fags…she would be one that would not be converted and would be forced to live out her hateful straight life on a deserted island..chained, barefoot, and pregnant for the rest of her miserable sad existence of a life…go to hell in a basket honey..got hates haters….

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:26pm

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:27pm
  123. self-loathing, shame, stuff injected into her by a fearful non-loving milieu of so-called Christians. She will be in my prayers for healing. So sad. Such a waste.

  146. Is this an elaborate hoax by Trey Parker to promote Book of Mormon II starring Michelle “I need to resurrect my two decades of failures career” Shocked?

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:49pm
  147. Just the fact that someone thinks they have knowledge of what God likes or dislikes is a clear signal they have a scew lose. To also state that God hates is so against any religion. In this case as this person makes a living from singing she should be boycotted by anyone who belives that God does not hate. Which would be from most of the intelligent population.

  153. Sophisticated hillbilly… I’ve mer self proclaimed hillbillies that are much sophisticated then her simply based on the fact that they don’t spread hate or claim to know what god hates or doesn’t hate. For someone who is a born again Christian she sure is judgmental.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 2:57pm
  154. Every LGBTQ person in this world holds a special place in my heart, I love you all. I may not know you but I love you. People like Michelle can’t hurt us, we already stand way above her. We are stronger than her and by her saying what she said, she is showing the world that she is so weak. She knows that she is weak and she can’t handle that so she lashes out at others. Love is much more powerful than hate. Love you all. All <3 NOH8

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 3:42pm
  194. Ok, what she said was horrible. But there sure is a lot of use of the word “hate”, along with sexist and ablist words such as “bitch” and “retard” in these comments. And some of you even make attacks on her personal appearance. She may be a bigot, but some of you really need to take a step back and realize the enormous double standard you’re showing. One bigot’s actions is bringing out your own inner bigotry.

  201. Who cares what this chick says? She is second rate and has destroyed her career. now she has to go and sing at Religious outings and Jesus circles. Whatever she wants to say doesn’t matter. Sometimes a failing artist has to do something to feel valid…Look at Hank Williams Jr…he attempted to stay relevant by pandering to the tea party….This girl is a fail and is only hiding from herself….

  210. God has never said anything about not liking what he, supposedly, created which would be even more nonsensical. Actually “God” never spoke to the masses. It was always a private and personal, oneway, conversation that has always been subjective and hearsay. The Old Testament scriptures in Leviticus were written as rules to live by. These were written by/for Jews only and did not pertain to Gentiles. Plus, these rules were only for Jewish men not to have sexual relations with other men. Women were never mentioned and are, thus, exempt from the rules found in Leviticus. And, Jesus was never quoted as to having said anything that condemned homosexuality.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 4:12pm
  211. I have been a HUGE fan for a long time and have her albums and been to many concerts. Never again. I choose my gay friends over this faded star.

  224. I really don’t understand what she would have to gain from this. It got her into the media, though in a bad way. She was mildly popular decades ago. Pity that she chose this way to gain attention. And Michelle, please do not speak for God especially when you declare somthing totally wrong. When one speaks for God, one had better be right or one will be held accountable when one faces God in the aterlife. Jesus Christ died for ALL people’s sin – hatred, lying, stealing, cheating,etc. We are all loved by God. Focus on putting fantastic records like Suzanne Vega or Nanci Griffith instead, okay? And, Michelle, given that homosexuals are a minority upon earth, wouldn’t it follow that there will be more heterosexuals in hell, than LGBTs?.

  225. The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work. In the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.[1]

    The idea of the American Dream is rooted in the United States Declaration of Independence which proclaims that “all men are created equal” and that they are “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights” including “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

  281. Glad to hear she is losing gigs, people like this need to be silenced with their hate by isolating them from any media coverage. They are tiny little people with an agenda that serves no purpose. As our society becomes more enlightened with acceptance, love and tolerance they will quickly fade into obscurity.

  286. Wow. ‘hates’.??? If there is a God he surely would not hate. What a freak. This is what’s wrong with the world. She’s lucky she got out of San Francisco alive.

  289. This lady is CRAZY! I’m happy though that the managers and the audience responded they way they did! Good job. This is a prime example of “if you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all.”

  291. Always interesting for a born again ‘Christian’ to say they ‘live in fear’…I am pretty sure that God said ‘fear not’. Maybe she should revere her god by not putting words in his mouth. Anyway, don’t know who she is, won’t be looking into it, my God tells ME to LOVE all…EQUAL rights!!!! Blaming any god for YOUR hatred is pretty weak!! Blessings to ALL my LGBTQS friends and yet to be friends. :)

  295. Organized religion is just an excuse for hatred. Let’s hear from some religions that don’t alienate humans who don’t fall into their blinkered, ignorant definition of reality.

  313. well in her defense, maybe she thought she was performing at Westboro Baptist?? Poor dear, how horrible to ruin your entire career in one quick night. I am around the corner from the club where she was performing and I was wondering what drove those people out into the street so early. Michele, we are the most loyal fans in the world, ask Cher, Midler, Madonna, etc…but we also never forget….bye bye Michele

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 5:42pm
  318. I’ve never heard of her. Maybe that says something about the quality of the work she does. Maybe she should focus more on her work and less on her hate.

  319. Is she on purpose?

  321. Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 5:46pm
  322. One: This person must not be very well known. I’ve never heard of her and I love music. Second: People like her, that are pompous and pretentious, are ugly at the hear and soul. It is also people like her that use the bible as wyrd and weapon. Third: She needs to take a real good look at her bible once more because no where does it say anything about God “hating” anything or anyone. It does say: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor” “You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.” You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.” Finally: I was born gay. I didn’t just wake up one morning and make a list of things to-do (ie. Shower, Shave, Pay the bills, Turn Gay.) God made me this way and when it comes my time it is he whom will judge me.

  327. This picture of her is making my gaydar go off. She has to be a self loathing lesbian. I mean, look at her! But I never heard of her. Serves me right. Artists these days are supporting, and she’s just denying her feelings.

  333. God made ALL humans from Unconditional Love. Humans are the ones who hate them and blame “God” for this. Who thinks God created something he hates is beyond ignorat!. Let me THANK the bible for teaching how to preach hate . N O T !!! Religion is a form of a blind division that creates adiction to those who dont know what is BEING is all about. Following a “dogma” is just matter of flipping pages. Knowing you are a spiritual being is your direct true connection with God, that is what your essence is made of.

  335. There’s only so much hate and ignorance decent people will stand still for. 2/3rds got up and left, and all thos evenues closed, and probably more by now. Safe to say her career just hit a hell of a speed bump. Do not pass GO, do not collect 200 dollars. Back to square one. You say you’re Shocked? Good. Wake up call, dearie.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:33pm
  364. She was in indie queen in the 80′s. How embarrassing for her. What an asshat.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:40pm
  365. That’s awesome. I actually feel somewhat sorry for her, though. She has had some serious struggles with mental illness and I imagine that played a huge role in her tirade. This does not excuse her behavior, but I can’t totally hate her for her remarks. I think she is absolutely suffering from internalized homophobia and religious brainwashing.

    Posted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 7:40pm
  366. good hope the whole tour dumps her, it will be back to singing by campfires again,,

  369. wow I can’t believe that she would be so hateful and try to shove her shit down everyone’s throats. If she wants to be an ignorant discriminating bigot; that’s her prerogative. But she doesn’t have the right to sit there and bash people over their heads with her beliefs. It’s not acceptable for the KKK to do that about black people, it shouldn’t be acceptable for christians to do that about gay people…

Makes me wonder…
    Am glad to hear that all other venues have cancelled.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:00pm
  408. I pray for her because she is ignorant. God does not hate. God definitely does not Hate His children. God loves us all, He loves her even though she cuts her hair. That’s a sin in the Bible.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:01pm
  409. Park, for a lot of us, the Bible is NOT fake, ok?? Stop blaming real Christians for the idiocy of a few. As a real Christian, I know those idiots and this woman as well are NOT sincere Christians. If they WERE, they would not judge, they would love unconditionally and they would mind their own business. Ms. Shocked is now paying dearly for her big mouth.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:06pm
  417. She was an all-around anarcho-punk in the 80s, and this doesn’t make sense, then again, when going crazy, a new Belief System (BS) may be comforting to hang on to. I’ll stick to the TV for now, because unlike a new dogma, I can just shut it off when it becomes tiresome, and turn it down if it’s bothering anyone. Again, the peculiar obsession with other people’s love and sex lives claims another victim.

  427. Sad, she used to identify as gay in the 90′s…now she’s a born again Christian. Funny how that seems to induce memory loss & hate…and exactly where is it written “God hates Fags”?? When did he “tell” them that? It would seem to me that if you have been “given” this divine insight you might also be insightful enough to realize you just might kill whats left of your already dangling off of a cliff career by spewing your hatred. Born Again indeed.

  428. Fuck her-she’s stupid

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:19pm
  429. it’s like she just woke up one day and thought ‘today would be a good day to commit career suicide’

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:20pm
  430. Kudos to the venues who did cancel her.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:23pm
  431. Wow. what an idiot.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:23pm
  432. GOOD! I hope she’s ruined.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:23pm
  433. Michelle suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, and chooses not to take her meds…but when someone is schizophrenic, they don’t really have the cognitive ability to make that “choice”…and on top of that, she’s been attending an evangelical church…what a sad combination…

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:26pm
  434. She shot herself in the foot… serves her right.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:28pm
  435. So glad to read the venue responses.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:29pm
  436. She wanted publicity she got it XD

    Just ignore her. I never even knew the woman so she wasnt that famous

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:29pm
  437. I want to make a pun because of her last name, but… I can’t do it… the stupidity hurts…

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:30pm
  438. I wish her well in her new job as fry cook at Chick-fil-A.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:31pm
  439. It’s unfortunate that this individual refuses to take her Meds, and, even more so that she has chosen to attend a faith based hate group….We have a choice not to support her and the venues that have cancelled her appearances should , hopefully, wake her up– but, not holding my breath.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:31pm
  440. She gave herself the last name Shocked, after her release from a mental hospital where she was “treated” for paranoid-schizophrenia with shock treatments

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:32pm
  441. There is no excuse for stupid. On meds, off meds she needs to be swept into the dust bin of history. Maybe she should take up chasing parked cars!!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:33pm
  442. God hates no one. Not even your effed up ass, Ms Shocked!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:40pm
  443. Beyatch is TOAST!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:41pm
  444. Quite sad. Mental illness is a ‘tough pill’ to swallow…but it is so much harder when it takes the form of angry hatred. She needs some prayers she finds love. Being born again she should know Jesus loves all people.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:42pm
  445. I agree that the choice to cancel her at all other venues is a good one…I think her mental capacity is spiraling down and she needs medical attention…as well as being free from an evangelical church…if you’ve never suffered from mental issues or you’ve never been around anyone close to you that struggles with mental issues, it’s hard to understand…I do NOT condone what she said, but knowing now that she suffers from a mental illness puts a whole other spin on it for me…I hope she gets the help she needs and gets away from the evangelicals, so that she can be well and learn to love and accept herself…

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:45pm
  446. Idiot!!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:46pm
  447. I am very surprised at Michelle’s declaration, and I think it’s great that the 11 other venues cancelled with her.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:48pm
  448. Funny…first glance at her photo, my first thought was “she’s gay.” I find it ironic that the article says that she’s denied being a lesbian. I wonder how many times she’s been asked…never judge a book by its cover…then again, maybe Ms Shocker shouldn’t be judging the “gays.”

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:48pm
  449. Just plain stupid.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:49pm
  450. And I always thought she was a lesbian.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:49pm
  451. I thought she was a lesbian too.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:53pm
  452. I fel like a member of my family has died, I pretty much know every word, every song, I’ve seen her live @ a dozen times, once she even stod up for marriag eequality..

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:54pm
  453. She has her nerve to to that in the Gay capital! She better run!! She is toast!!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:56pm
  454. She does look like a lesbian!! But an ugly one!!!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:57pm
  455. stood

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 6:57pm
  456. well, that will teach her to spread hate and ignorance.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:00pm
  457. awesome

  458. You can twitter that one! haha

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:03pm
  459. So Sad, I’m a huge fan, at one concert I saw, she advocated for marriage equality, now this? it’s heartbreaking because so much of her music is the soundtrack of my life

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:04pm
  460. Excellent …

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:04pm
  461. Sticks and stones may break So they canceled all her showws because she gave an opinion? I dont think its right with what she said but its noot fair to those who wanted to attend the concert. Ive seen many other artists on twitter, fb and others say things like that but they havent gotten canceled. I get that the lgbt community finds it offensive, and so do I as a gay man, but there comes a time when you just gotta accept That not everyone will stand up for what you believe in. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me

  464. Uuhhhhh,, who is she again? ,,lol

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:09pm
  465. She has now been shocked by gays

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:14pm
  466. Elliot ‘ima’ Natsu what need was there to make such a statement at a music concert? She brought her personal politics into a concert when she didn’t have to all. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but when that opinion reflects a society that is willing to discriminate & disseminate messages of hate, what did she expect? Anyone with half a brain & half a heart would be disgusted at her words. I’m straight but I believe in equal rights for everyone.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:19pm
  467. What an ignorant hillbilly.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:26pm
  468. Good bigot

  469. Bravo

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:31pm
  470. This is when you say “the system actually does work!”

    it’s all about the money nowadays… and to be fair, given that there is more blowback from anti-equality messages, it makes smart business sense to do what these venues did. I doubt anyone that is or has queer friends/family would want to patronize a place that supports such hateful and bigoted people.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:35pm
  471. This is really sad news of Michelle. I’ve met her and she was so nice WAY back when apparently. To bad her mind, like so many others, has now narrowed in the name of Christianity. Dropped from my page.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:36pm
  472. good for them!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:36pm

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:37pm
  475. God hates bigotry, you cunt. Go back to the shit pile woodshed you crawled out from under. Nobody needs your commentary. You wouldn’t know From God if She was smiting you on your puddin’head. Tweet THAT.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:40pm
  476. Anybody else hear that? It’s the sound of someones career in its death throes.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:54pm
  477. I have never heard of this woman before so I looked her up on YouTube. I saw her interview another woman guitarist, she called her a ‘guitar-ista’ and a ‘she-ro’…. she kinda had the mannerisms of Melissa Ferrick! no offense Melissa, I love you! it seems to me that she might have made a pretty sexy Dyke if she wasn’t so confused ;-)

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 7:58pm
  478. WHAT?????????????????????????????????????

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:25pm
  479. I hope the Christians pay her bills because no one else will! F’ you Michelle!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:43pm
  480. Its people like her who destroy this world and make it hateful

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:48pm
  481. She is a damn closest lesbian! She needs a good shrink.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:49pm
  482. Maddona did it too, may not have been same direction or words, but was her political opinion……….some people agree some people don’t…kinda wonder if she said it because of what Maddona had done.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:56pm
  483. I wrote about this dingaling already – what the hell is wrong with her? Does she not own a mirror? Gay much? She’s a dyke butch if I ever saw one!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 8:57pm
  484. She use to be. Born again… Someone’s brainwashed her… I don’t get it.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:09pm
  485. Extremely brainwashed

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:13pm
  486. She’ll come out of it and feel stupid as hell… which I can’t say isn’t deserved right now.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:14pm
  487. Guess she will have to perform for other more specific, anti-gay audiences now, hmm?

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:16pm
  488. This c*nt will be performing for the cows.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:19pm
  489. Is no one going to defend her freedom of speech? If she had said “God loves Fags” twenty years ago the same thing would have happened to her. Boycott her shows, don’t play her music, make fun of her but defend OUR right to speak our minds.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:22pm
  490. She just outed herself and lost a bunch of money at the same time..stupid.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:23pm
  491. John Keasler, no one is saying that she does not have the freedom of speech. But patrons have the RIGHT not to reach into their pockets and pay her if they do not like what she is stupid enough to say!

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:26pm
  492. Anyone who thinks they know what “God hates” is a nut job and needs to be avoided. So if God made everything then God hates itself? WTF

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:29pm
  493. Kail, I agree that we can all tune her out and walk out on her. That is part of our freedom too.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 9:57pm
  494. Elliot “Imu” Natsu: … names will never hurt?

    … Bull-shit.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 10:23pm
  495. John Keasler: Freedom of speech only goes so far… and really, you want to whine about us “repressing” her? that’s fine… you have that right… but you do NOT have the right to chastize US for exercising the EXACT SAME RIGHT by choosing not to go to her concerts or having her play in our concert halls. if you want to call this oppression or stifling her freedom of speech, then you have to accept that every individual has the right to speak and express their OWN personal views as well… and if that means that they want to refuse her stage access at their club then that is ALSO an expression which is protected.

    It’s ironic how a lot of people whom would march and try and stifle other people’s civil rights are so quick to crow “Freedom of speech, Freedom of Expression” When they themselves feel the bitter sting of what they’ve been dealing out. They can dish it out, but sure as hell they can’t take it.

    Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from the consequences as a result OF said speech. IF you can’t handle the consequences of your freedom of speech, then save yourself the hassle and shut the fuck up.

    Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 10:29pm
  496. Exactly!

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:22am
  497. I think She’s just looking for free publicity and we all fell for it,hook,line,sinker.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:31am
  498. Scott, I find that hard to believe. And if it’s true, she must really be regretting it now that every single concert venue canceled on her.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:52am
  499. She can rebook her concerts with her bigoted church friends.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 3:07am
  500. She’ll be Nom’s headliner Martyr now!!

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 5:28am
  501. I’m sure the Westboro Bigoted Crackpots would love to see her in concert. She can book their family reunion… oops! They’re all family – never mind.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 5:28am
  502. I feel a little bad for her because her own self-hatred must be eating her up! She is totally gay! There are consequences to all our choices!

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 5:30am
  503. Looks like she pulled a Sinead O’Connor.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 5:33am
  504. Well looks like Karma found her, she needs to be careful about what she throws at others because it will go back to her just like a boomerang. Let it be a first lesson to her.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 6:32am
  505. In light of the hate-filled remarks she made, if I were running a concert venue in which she was booked, I’d cancel the show too. But also since this seems out of character for what I’ve known of her in the 80s and 90s, I think the situation calls for compassion and understanding — it suggests that she’s going through something and lashing out (albeit stupidly). Maybe it’s a cry for attention or help. Is it a combination of mental illness and religious brainwashing? Just food for thought. Peace all.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:10am
  506. Wow, didn’t see that coming. What the hell? Another testament to the wonderful nature of organized religion, or maybe a testament to unhinged personalities. She has always seemed to be close to the edge.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:19am
  507. All very wise comments, folks, but I think we’re missing the point here, especially Marcos. She really needs to be listening to Rush’s classic trio of albums, “Permanent Waves,” “Moving Pictures” and “Signals” a whole lot more. Exposure to Rush should knock her back to her senses. Living in her pool, she’s forgotten about the sea.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:22am
  508. Good. She doesn’t deserve to have people pay to here hatred spewed instead of the healing power of music. She needs therapy not an audience.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:27am
  509. Buh-Bye….!
