2. SOUNDBITE (English) Bebe Rexha, recording artist - on separating art from artist:
"I'm a very big fan of Kanye West so I try not to -- and I know that everybody has their own issues and everybody has their own demons. It's just sometimes, like, I think, I think separating the artist from the musician, the person has to do on what your morals are. So certain... you know, the things that R. Kelly that I've seen so far, you know, I can't, I just can't listen to him ever again. The stuff with Michael is harder for me, because I'm like, I can't believe it, but if this is the truth, I just can't. Yeah, it's really hard."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) AJ McLean, recording artist (Backstreet Boys) - on separating art from artist:
"I personally don't want to watch the Michael documentary because I have my own views on him and I, and I, and I want to keep it the way that I see him. And he will forever be the King of Pop."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Maren Morris, recording artist - on separating art from artist:
"For me, it's not possible. And that's my personal preference as a music fan. I can't really listen to those artists without thinking about those documentaries. So for me, it's very hard to separate the man from the art."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Kacey Musgraves, recording artist - on separating art from artist:
"I personally don't choose to listen to somebody's music because I completely agree with everything that they stand for. That being said, I don't stand for things that hurt other people. So it's a tricky question."
7. Wide shot Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood talk with reporter
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks, recording artists - on separating art from artist:
Brooks: "Yeah, I think once the music is played, it becomes yours. So if I'm a, if I'm a James Taylor fan, once his music comes to me, it becomes mine, right? So if James gets into some kind of trouble, it's James' world. But that music still means what it means to me. So for those people who love those artists who find, who find that trouble's coming, do not be ashamed to play their music for you because it mean something totally different for you."
