    This is true, but I don't think he's lost his audience yet - he seems to be growing with his demographic.

    I'll give him some slack on the assumption that he'll grow out of his rebellious stage as most young men do.


    Ah...John?

    That's very liberal thinking.

    I can't think of one song by him that I know of.. But then again I'm 46, so? My daughter 9 doesn't like him, says he's too girly.

    Youre just defending him because he's a Canuck, like you.

    Oh and you read minds too!

    I know John, he is one of the last people in here who would blindly defend something for "patriotic" reasons.......then again you are not aware that in Canada "patriotism" is considered unseemly

    Actually, it's Canadian conservative thinking - not too judgmental about the private lives of other people, celebrities included.

    No, I'm defending him because I'm a Canuck - we try not to be overly judgmental. If you can find a comment of mine where I've criticized the private life of an American, or someone of another nationality, you're point may be valid - but I bet you won't find one.
