  1. That's absolutely disgusting. None of the victims have claimed to not know Matt, they all have had real experiences with him. I don't know what kind of "evidence" you want that hasn't already been shown (emails, leaked DMs, him being dropped by Warner and his management). Look, it's fine if you want to continue to support Matt and listen to his music; no one's saying that you can't. It's not fine however, to belittle the victims like this. It's callous and unnecessary. I seriously hope that you think about why you're so reluctant to believe that even one of these stories could be

  2. I wanted to wait until Matt had made a substantive public post about all of this before I chimed in publicly (because I do believe that everyone should have a chance to defend themselves before being publicly judged/having their persona executed), but since you're echoing a common comment that many people have already shared, I guess now is as good a time as any to share some thoughts I've had in private. If I can, I'd like to start a discussion around several things that include our perceptions around following: 1- People with mental illness and our understanding of specific kinds

  3. From everything I've read it sounds like Matt has some psychological issues that go beyond his bipolar disorder, rooted in a narcissistic victim complex. Sometimes people are victims to things outside their control, but that's different than having a victim complex, where a person blames all of their own failures on factors beyond their control, which is convenient way to avoid taking personal responsibility for anything. I'm sure MG is probably still blaming all of this on his bipolarity to protect the ego from having to admit fault. Add all of the manipulation, lying, and cheat

  4. Why do people feel the need to come on here and goad everyone? Just stop. Everyone on here has their own storey and their own opinion. We all are or once were huge fans. Some of us will continue supporting his music going forward and some of us won't. Maybe be thankful that you actually have ZERO idea of what it's really like on the other end. And maybe try and have some empathy and compassion for people that have been through something, big or small its theirs and has affected them negatively. Just because it didnt happen to you or you dont know someone who was doesn't mean it's

  5. That's not how this works, dude. You don't have the authority to be judge and jury, draw a conclusion, and claim that you're right and we all just have to accept it. As has been pointed out over and over again, every person here will make their own judgement. Their judgement is no more or less valid than yours.

  6. I think this is the most informative and thoughtful post in here. Thanks for taking the time to write it.

  7. This. This is how I feel. Thanks Daniel! What I said earlier (and deleted) just sounded bad.

  8. Long time lurker, first time poster and I have a few points I'd like to make 1) Matthew's music has always held enormous meaning to me. It's gotten me through horrible times. Up until recently he was my favourite musical artist full stop. 2) This doesn't suddenly make his music horribly irredeemable or terrible. 3) This doesn't mean others can't still choose to listen to his old music. Nor does it means others cannot listen to whatever he puts out in the future. In fact, I haven't seen a single person who believes Hayley saying that we have to stop listeni

  9. I think that ultimately, any discussion about belief or ‘proof’ will just end up going in circles. For some, the amount of proof that they would need to morally condemn MG would be so extreme that it would border on impossible to acquire, and even if impossible proof was put in front of them, I suspect some would still think he didn’t do anything wrong. At the same time, I do think that there is another group that uncritically accepts anything online without reflection, and just assumes that since MG might not be the saint that they imagined him to be, instead they should destroy him and his r

  10. I think you can have a lot of personal demons and still be able to comment on some social justice stuff, like in Blue Skies Over Bad Lands. However, She's In It For The Money probably doesn't hold up too good.

  11. Dude. Just no. I highly doubt any pics that Rae or Hayley put up were done so with mg’s fan base in mind. There is nothing wrong with women being comfortable in their own skin and showing it. FFS. Do y’all not understand how hard this shit is for women? To come out and speak against him? With Hayley’s post, they have been empowered to do so. Whether anything illegal happened or not, a lot of this is flat out disturbing and there is a pattern to it.

  12. Dudes have been going around with their tits hanging out since the dawn of time with pride. You ever been too a beach? Some dudes even will be their with their big ol’ titties hanging out, no bra. Some even be there with women with smaller breasts than the man has. You don’t see a lot of moral outrage when that happens. Ain’t nobody crying “save the children!” It’s almost as if this double standard on breasts is some result of men knowing they like to think with their dicks deciding the only way that men can not think with their dicks is to lay that burden on women to not make us think with ou

  13. Don't worry... the people 'cancelling' MG were never MG fans in the first place.

  15. I’ve been reading over the screen captures of peoples experience with Matthew. There are 4 stories in total not 25, so I’m not sure who these abused women are. Of the 4 stories 2 are believable and only 1 of the stories is “bad” but its from 2002 when he was still bi polar and undiagnosed. So we have a trend of bad relationships, he cheats on his wife(s). Matthew is not first person to do this and will not be the last. The problem is he is being labelled as abusive toward women. The news article is published as if he a predator which he is not. Based on the experiences published he
