Hito has expressed a thoughtful insight into the transcendental connection of Music to virtually every aspect of human consciousness, especially to emotions, thoughts and passions.

If you haven't already, read his original Post and further illuminations of his point. (One of the most interesting recent Threads on this most interesting Board, in my opinion.)

Is it possible to embrace the Art without having to adopt the personal, political, or prejudicial convictions, views, beliefs, habits, etc. of the Artist?

Is it possible that a sudden change in the way we feel personally about the Artist might change the way we feel about the Art?

Music is so personal and powerful, delightful yet dangerous, so intimately connected to our every disposition that heartbreak, betrayal, rejection can sometimes transform the joy of a treasured tune, even 'our song' - into unbearable anger or sorrow. Aural torture.

Interesting to me is the fact that I cannot help but 'like' certain music (art) produced (created) by Artists with whom I would not associate in any other way.

There have certainly been more than a few times in my experience where such an evolution has taken place.

(Michael Jackson! OK. Name one of yours.)

Just consider a Volkswagen or a Porsche. What I mean by this is it's hard to remove the Hitler from a Carerra. Unfortunately. I lived one block away from a Volkswagen dealership and boy, I'll never do that again. People were going bananas. Flipping cars and jackknifing semis. Forget that.
