Default Should artists be separated from their work?

This has honestly been a question that I've pondered for a very long time, and one that I've never really come to a conclusion on. As an example, take Kanye West. He can be extraordinarily thick headed, idiotic, inconsiderate, and just downright rude (see: his social media posts and the 2009 MTV Music video Awards). However, his music is legitimately pretty good. Maybe you don't share the same belief as me, which is fine, but he's also the most awarded artist from the 21st century, which definitely says something. But the point is, should we as consumers of art, music, and whatever else disregard the artists personal details entirely and consume the art as it is, or should we take into account the life of the artist and his or her prior actions before consuming the art? Or should it be a mix of a both?
