The Italian tenor has told the Associated Press that its reporting about Placido Domingo is ‘absurd’.
‘I am still appalled at what happened to this incredible artist,’ he said ‘I don’t understand this. Tomorrow a lady can just come up and say Andrea Bocelli molested me 10 years ago, and from that day on, no one wants to sing with me anymore; the opera houses won’t call me anymore. This is absurd.’
Bocelli said there are two kinds of judgement for an artist: ‘One is the moral one, which must be dealt with in courts and here on Earth and by our good Lord up in the skies. Then there is an artistic judgment, which is subjective, and up to each one of us.’
