    Does anyone else get pissed off as I am about these actions by Scott Rose about Anna Netrebko? Why the h*ll should she have to clarify anything to anyone, especially to Mr. Rose?!?! Why should he feel himself entitled to demand anything of her?

    Yes, she is a singer, not a politician, and should keep her views (whatever they are) separate from her art, just like we do here on Opera Lively where politics is a banned topic.

    Yes, that's the article.
