Now we're both shocked

March 18, 2013 - Harry Eagar
Michelle Shocked is one of the very, very few active singer-songwriters whose CDs I collect. I am not always certain what her lyrics are about, but until now they weren't about dissing homosexuals.

Apparently, she's taken a new view on life, according to MEOW (Musicians for Equal Opportunities for Women):

"Michelle Shocked, known for living up to her surname, cleared out San Francisco club Yoshi’s last night, and shut down the venue, after she went on an anti-gay tirade, which she summed up by saying, 'You can go on Twitter and say "Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.” ' "

Hmmm. If I understand her biography aright, she's had mental illness in the past. Possibly it has come back in strange garb. For sure, an anti-homosexual attitude doesn't match the rest of her stuff, as heard in her songs.

I'm a little shocked.
