I think SOME of us would not have enjoy his music as much had his sexuality been declared.
Luther sang love songs. And when we hear such songs, we think/fantasize of amore between a MAN and a WOMAN. So some of us would have found it difficult to reconcile his music from his sexual preference.
We can argue whether some of us SHOULD feel that way. But THAT's another matter.
And Luther might have found it difficult to concentrate on his art if he had to constantly field questions, concerns and innuendo about his sexuality, male lovers, HIV status, etc.
Some people can handle THAT kind of stuff. But perhaps Luther could not.
I recall seeing Luther on VH1 interview a few years ago. It was a very amicable discussion UNTIL the rumors of his sexuality came up. He then INSTANTLY became hostile and he even cursed a couple of times.
I don't think Luther really wanted to share with the world whom/what he did in his bed. And, when you REALLY think about it, he was EVERYBIT within his rights to think/act as he did.
