.... Well not exactly, but this article by The Guardian gives a great insight into the mind of La Roux's Elly Jackson. I really like this paragraph:

Aware that her outspokenness is proving increasingly polarising, Jackson draws a distinction between the artist and their art. "I'm still going to listen to Gary Glitter's records even though he's a kiddie-fiddler," she says. "Don't let his problems ruin your life. You're not buying their personality, you're buying their music. Of course it's never nice when you're into an artist and you discover they're horrible, and, yes, it would be disappointing if I suddenly found out that Annie Lennox was racist. But you'd still love the music. It wouldn't matter what I heard about Michael Jackson or Prince – you can't just stop liking a song."
Check out the full article here.
