    The Bee Gees were indeed badass. As for their involvement in the disco scene, it was accidental at best.

    That ain't no jive talkin... The BeeGees were badazz

    However speaking as someone who was a teenager in the late 70s and early 80s, After Saturday night fever right or wrong the Bee Gees were considered the standard for what constituted disco.

    Accordingly trying to portray the popular perception of disco as being black music or gay music is misguided. By the time of the backlash it was teenybopper music.

    Actually, they likely extended the life of Disco. They also wrote a number of songs performed by other artists who were involved in the Disco scene, including Yvonne Elliman.

    Great song, though "How Deep Is Your Love?" may be my favorite song from their catalog.

    Sure, but they had a career before disco, wrote disco songs reluctantly when the disco fad was already on its way out, and quickly went back to their roots once it had run its course.

    Biebers real problem is that he's beginning to notice that the groupies throwing their underwear at him are age inappropriate. If he wants grown up panties sailing at him, then he has to become a grown up.

    See the reason I asked and didn't bother looking it up is because I assumed it was a baseball player and I have no desire to wikipedia baseball players.

    It would seem it's not.

    I'm on Facebook and Twitter and I check BBC News and the Guardians News website periodically throughout the day and this is the first time I've heard of this "controversy."

    To be frank, meh, I'm of the opinion he meant well enough and I'm not getting why it's getting the traction that you've implied J. I guess when this happened, it was a slow news day.

    Oh and this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5RxNzeJn_s

    I don't want you to keep your mouth shut per se, but I do want you to realize what the real intent was behind the event in question.:vulcan:

    What makes you think that Bieber hasn't figured that one out yet, or anything else regarding a future career? If you want to figure that one out, I suggest that you listen to his album My World 2.0 (shocking and hard as that sounds to you) and see if he's progressing lyrically (from what I've seen of the song 'Where Are You Now', it seems that he is doing so.)

    So, just to clarify, does this mean that the people who hate country music are all black nationalists or something?

    Ha bloody ha, as usual from you. :lol:

    I'm not even going to dignify that with a reply, seeing as you don't seem to get what I've posted previously.:vulcan:

    Even people who hate country are racist, apparently. Ever hear of Charley Pride? ;)

    The only great music ever composed is classical, disco, Frank Sinatra, Barry White's ''Love Theme'' and the Crash Test Dummies. Case closed, end of story, you may close the thread.:cool:

    I can't help it if you missed it. As I also get news feeds from those organizations, I saw it just fine. :shrug:

    Even if unintentional, to say he hopes someone killed for her religious-ethnicity would have idolized him (using pretty religious terms although in jest) is at best inappropriate.
