REM’s Michael Stipe Endorses Bernie Sanders For His ‘Honesty And Realness’

first_imgFrom Red Hot Chili Peppers to Jon Fishman, musicians continue to expound their support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Most recently, R.E.M. frontman, Michael Stipe, told Rolling Stone why his vote would go to the Democratic candidate. “In art and in music, I seek out and listen for honesty and realness. That’s why I’m backing Bernie Sanders for President of the United States. In politics, he is the person who is offering me the most honesty and the most realness.” Well said, Mr. Stipe, well said.He further explains himself off-camera:“I’m a feminist. I’ve marched, supported and fought for black rights, privacy rights and LGBTQ rights. I’m deeply concerned about the environment. I’m completely freaked out by fracking. Sanders takes positions on all of these issues that have [outshone] any other candidate that I’ve seen — and I have looked, believe me. I identify with him. I’m a proud liberal, but I also lean more center when it comes to policy. I get it that there are people who don’t see things exactly the way I do.“I’ve been around long enough to see when a politician is waffling or dodging hard questions, or trying to alter or rewrite the positions they have taken. Sanders is refreshingly not that. Listen, politics is not easy, and America is so vast — there are lots of different viewpoints out there. It’s refreshing to have a candidate who speaks his mind, who makes sense, who isn’t demagogic. His appeal and his honesty — once people see who he is and what he stands for — is perfect for now. It’s very 21st century. It is idealistic, but also realistic.”You can read more about his political opinion in this interview, or watch Stipe’s endorsement below:[via Rolling Stone]last_img read more

Guardiola could quit Man City in the summer, says Burton

first_img Loading… “Fran [Soriano] has come out as chief executive and said he doesn’t see that being the case, he sees him being part of the plans, it’s ongoing and he doesn’t see him leaving. “His whole body language changed recently regarding what he’s achieved, when he’s hit his goals, and it just looks like he will be heading away from that. “Mikel Arteta was probably in line to take over from Pep Guardiola so he will have been asking that question: If Pep Guardiola leaves am I going to be that person? Obviously the answers weren’t warm enough for him to have gone to Arsenal. “I think that’s the case because he wouldn’t have gone, he would have stayed there at Manchester City and waited his turn – whether that was in the summer or further or slightly after that for him to take over. “The noises obviously weren’t enough for him and it was too good an opportunity for him not to take.” Guardiola has admitted to being in no rush to discuss fresh terms at City and has history when it comes to leaving prominent posts when at the peak of his powers.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Pep Guardiola could walk away from Manchester City this summer, says Michael Brown, with the Blues seemingly planning for the future after allowing Mikel Arteta to head for Arsenal. The City manager is ready to see out his contract A Spaniard who had been filling an assistant role at the Etihad Stadium was expected to step up into a top job once a change in the dugout was made. Guardiola is only tied to a contract through to 2021 and is yet to commit to an extended stay. Arteta will not be filling his shoes whenever the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss decides to depart, with a new position taken up at Emirates Stadium. Former City midfielder Brown believes that move was made as alternative options are being considered by the Blues. The reigning Premier League champions insist that no new boss will be required any time soon, but that decision may be taken out of their hands if Guardiola decides to step down. “Personally I think he’s going at the end of the season,” Brown told Radio 5 Live.Advertisementcenter_img Promoted ContentTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time7 Truly Incredible Facts About Black HolesThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
