I realize this thread will make some "devoted" fans upset but I'm genuinely wondering. There are a lot of negative references to fat people in different songs and his book but he has been fat for a very long time. Also, he has a very fat band member. I admit I don't like fat people because ime they can't control themselves in different areas of their life just like their eating behavior. I'm not proud of my opinion. However, I stay thin because I don't like fat. I don't understand him because it seems hypocritical. Also, it's not harder to be thin as people get older. It's a myth that the metabolism slows. If a person pushes themselves very hard with exercise and counts calories they will be thin unless they have a medical problem. Why is he prejudiced in this way against others but not himself?
