You just don't see the big picture do you? Or maybe BIG is all you see? You must want to live in a society where no one pokes fun of anyone...ever. Sorry, but Jay Leno and any other person with a talk show/monologue do this for a LIVING. And you know what? Everybody knows it's just poking fun. Because someone makes a comment you don't agree with, you get bent out of shape. But, that okay. You're entitled to your opinion as I'm entitled to mine. We're all adults. There's no harm done. But there's a big difference between poking fun at someone and all out hate. Think about it. People in this country are usually ostracized for hate while others make a living out of poking fun of people. I made a comment, no hate behind it, and I didn't earn a paycheck for it.

Did you read the post on here where Gene Simmons say he likes audience bootlegs because he can hear the audience saying things like "wow, look how fat Simmons got". You don't see Gene having a nervous breakdown. You know why? Because he doesn't let it affect him. He's still loved by millions. Sure, you can joke how he's put on quite a bit of weight in the last few years, but he's still more popular, richer and famous than me. Maybe that's the only thing people can find wrong with him, Mike Reno or Ann Wilson. So, in his eyes, he wins.

If I had sold millions of albums and had a career as illustrious as Heart, I think that's kind of petty of Ann to gripe about people talking about her being overweight. To quote Paul Stanley, "it's like winning the lottery and complaining about the taxes". I'm sure she's uncomfortable about it, otherwise it wouldn't affect her. But she let it get to her. If she wants to make a change in her life, only she can do it. It didn't stop me from buying Heart albums. Hell, I'm the only person I know who loves 'Desire Walks On'.

I think that if that's all Ann has to whine about, it must be a pretty tough life. Let's see...millions of fans, millions of albums sold, a great legacy, an incredibly talented songwriter AND an incredibly respected singer who has lost NOTHING in terms of her voice after all these years...but she's overweight. Trust me, I think she'll find a way to get through life.

No harm done and no hate intended.
