Godsmack frontman Sully Erna does not like when musicians make political statements. In an interview with Milwaukee's 102.9 The Hog (great name!) he basically tells celebrities to shut up and entertain.
Before we get to the quote, I just want to remind you that this is the same Sully Erna that shared that COVID-19 is not a global killer and some wacky conspiracy theories about Joe Biden and COVID. So, is Sully telling himself to shutup?
Well, let's read this quote of his…
“I get paid to be an entertainer. That’s the position I’ve chosen. So I’ll focus on entertaining, making people smile, healing people through music. And anybody else that’s out there in a celebrity status that’s pushing people one way or the other when you have no experience as a medical expert or a politician, my advice is shut up and let people live their lives because you don’t know the consequences when you push them one way or the other. So why don’t you just do what you’re great at and entertain, because that’s what you are. That’s the position I’ve taken and that’s the position I’m gonna stand with. I’m gonna write my music, I’m gonna put on great live shows, and I’m gonna help people escape a lot of their daily problems, hopefully, that they have to face regardless.”
Maybe past-Sully should take current-Sully's advice?
