I was in shock when I read this this morning on Facebook. She was a truly talented artist. Did you all like Amy's music?

I think you're missing the point. Also, if you think of this on a scale the rates things we can relate to easily... what happened in Norway is something that we often think "won't happen here." It's something foreign to us -- something that is inconceivable and impossible to relate to. It's an event we can do little with aside from gasping "oh my god" until further information regarding motives and possible explanations are provided. This does not mean that it is not incredibly important and that it shouldn't be commented on or assessed or learned from, but it is, undoubtedly, something few people can relate to.
There is nothing here to prove. There is no social injustice going on in this thread. It's simply a thread to commemorate the (interesting) life of a very talented woman who made great music. Because we support her music doesn't mean we supported her choices. People will grieve over the loss of anyone who has somehow impacted them regardless of whatever current events are happening. This high and mightiness around here has gots to stop.
Society itself doesn't care about the issues that are occurring until they actually occur. From my studies, the mind doesn't become stimulated on societal events until it reaches a particular majority or popular vote aka entertainment news, newspapers, etc. One can be said on how we are sitting here finding out ways to make our blogs or whatever better... but totally ignoring the fact that we have other blog websites that are structured to make a mockery of human conditions. I don't need to explain anymore why I posted the discussion. I thought people who may have liked her music would have liked to know.
but again, to each their own and every opinion is welcomed.
She was so incredibly talented. Back to Black is a constant go-to album on my itunes. Heartbreaking...
