Scissor Sisters: We get hate mail in the U.S.
February 16 2005 1:00 AM ET
While the mostly gay rock band Scissor Sisters are the toast of the United Kingdom--they took home three Brit Awards last week--they get hate mail in the United States, according to out lead singer Jake Shears, who told Channel Four News that he suspects the negative feedback at home is due to homophobia. "People in the U.K., more so than in the United States, realize that music transcends sexuality," said Shears. The group's self-titled debut album has sold 1.6 million copies in the United Kingdom, as opposed to about 150,000 in the U.S.
