- Gain had a lot of controversy because of that too although most people defended her saying it was art. I guess popularity does make a huge difference
- Well Gain at least had some information as to why the sexual concept was necessary..
- I have to agree that this is true. I feel like both of their concepts are just as sexual as each other’s but Gain’s just more popular..
- Gain has her career and most people give her more leniency because she uses her solo albums to be a bit more experimental and expressive.
