People change, people grow, but few accept this as well as you.

If your own family or circle of friends has faced a similar situation, then you know how difficult it can be for even a close-knit group of people to accept with grace and dignity that one of their own has chosen to pursue an alternative lifestyle. Yet that's exactly what the Commodores managed to do when they finally came to terms with Lionel Richie's true musical orientation. Oh sure, the road to acceptance probably passed through all the usual stages, from denial ("But what about Brick House, Lionel? You love that song!"), to anger ("Damn, Lionel, you're a Commodore, not a Carpenter!") to bargaining ("Well, what if you went and worked with Kenny Rogers for a bit? Would that help you get it out your system?"). But a period of adjustment was to be expected from a band that started out with booty-shakers like Machine Gun and Slippery When Wet only to see their leader gravitate toward tearjerkers like Three Times A Lady, Sail On, and Still. The important thing is that in the end, the Commodores encouraged Lionel Richie to go out and pursue his awesome dream of Whitebread superstardom with their blessing, and though their own career never quite recovered from it, your Birthstar's loss was Reaganrock's gain. Love that does not judge or waver -- isn't that what we're all looking for? It's certainly what you've got to offer, if you can bring yourself fully in touch with your popstrological potential.
