    So as I put in my intro. Post I love to speak to all sorts of people and get to know them. However when I speak to males that, for this situation in particular, are my age, I hit a roadblock. When I have a discussion about music, it is like I am expected to worship the ground Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj walk on! I give them total props for their claim to fame, however I do not think Nicki is this messiah for female rappers and I agreed with this one review of GaGas latest album, the songs do not make you want to press repeat when they fade out! I am not hating on them, they are simply not my cup of tea. IF you love their music, than I have no problem with you expressing your opinions of their music. But do not curse someones name when they are not die hard fans of them. Its like im expected to, as a mixed/ethnic gay male, to love Nicki and GaGa. ARGH!, do you guys ever get into these situations...

    If they dont have anything in common with you, leave them be and find other people who are.
    Theres no written rule that states you have to be friends with anybody just because theyre gay.

    My music taste varies. But I'm not a (hardcore) fan of anyone. I do have some of their CDs usually their debut album and maybe their 2 and 3rd and I only play them occasionally in the cars and rarely in the house and that will be it., I don't expend any money on their concerts or memorabilia or downloading them from an app store.

    So I will always find someone who has some of the same taste in music as I'am but not to their extended fandom.

    Each generation the names change, before me it was Liza Minelli and Barbra Striesand; then it was Cher; when I was around your age it was Madonna; then it was Kylie Minogue, etc, etc, etc...

    There were also the movies some guys thought we were supposed to see (I've heard more than once "You've never seen the Sound of Music!!!!! We're taking back your gay card" type of stuff).

    So yes I remember hearing similar things when I was young "you don't own every Madonna album, OMG!!!".

    My opinion is like the music (art, movies, tv shows, etc) you like; be who you are with your own tastes and preferences; find your own path...

    The people who are secure in themselves will accept your preferences as your own right even if your tastes don't mesh with their own (just as you can do the same with them, you've already suggested you understand some people prefer the music of GaGa or Nicki).

    Those people who are so shallow and vapid as to "curse someones name" if they have a different opinion are possibly not worth pursuing a friendship with. True friends accept you for who you are, they don't expect you to "conform" to their tastes.

    You sound like a smart and reasonable young guy (your comment that you have no problem with other people expressing their preferences suggests so) and I am sure you will find other guys who will have the same respect for your right to your own tastes as you have for theirs.

    Also, perhaps the guys who do "curse someones name" for not sharing their tastes might learn a bit from you sharing that "we don't all have to like the same stuff".

    As the saying goes: 'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.'

    Ok. I agree with Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj, but Katy Perry can stick around for a few more albums. Then she can die.


    Honestly i think Katy can survive if she just wrote songs for OTHER singers.

    I don't necessarily LOVE Lady Gaga's music (she has a few fantastic songs) but I think she's a great artist (writes her own songs, doesn't lip synch). Can't stand Nikkie Minaj, hell I never even really liked Madonna.

    Always been an alt rock guy, currently loving The Strokes new album.
