Kim Kardashian Does Music..
It amazes me when I turn on the radio and hear the trash playing nowadays -which is why I rarely listen to the radio. People have sold out and the industry is, as I've said it many times, about big boobies, big butts, big hair, and no talent. While there are some artists that I semi-like and respect, I don't understand why they so often use their looks 90% of the time and their actual, real talent 10% of the time but that's what people seem to want.
As my film teacher says, "If you keep going to the movies and paying for the crap that's playing in the theaters, they're going to keep producing the same junk," (something along those lines) -and I believe the same applies to music.
It also amazes me how every beautiful person out there assumes that just because he or she is drop dead gorgeous, they can automatically sing and act. AGH! I don't know about the rest of America, but I personally am more interested in a person's voice than how they look. Today, music is just taken over by 1) looks or 2) Auto-tune "singing." With the right machines, ANYONE can sing..
Ok, so why does this make me so mad? Because I've been singing and writing for years. I'm not going to go out there and say, "OMG I'm the best singer songwriter in the world" because obviously, I know I'm not. However, I do work really hard on my music and respect those with a passion for music as well. What I DON'T like is the fact that good music is being screwed over by a bunch of no talent bimbos.
Also, I'm not even saying everyone who's famous is talentless. Again, I'm saying that I wish they'd use more talent as opposed to sex. For instance, I do somewhat like Beyonce. I think she's mad talented and really knows how to put on a performance. But sometimes, I feel like it's more about her booty and big hair than her music. Another example: Lady Gaga. I've seen her older videos and I've thought, "WOW! That girl can sing!!" I don't even particularly like her music but I can't say that she's not talented because she truly is -BUT, she seems to be more focused in trying to be unique with her strange costumes than anything else.
Oh but there are some ladies (of today's music scene) that I absolutely love.. even if they do "sex it up" just a bit: Pink, Colbie Caillat, Mary J. Blige, and Christina Aguilera (even with all her recent troubles).
And then we get to the "rap music" of today. It makes me want to pound my head against the wall. WTF happened to good hip hop ..nowadays, people are blasting Lil' Wayne and Drake. Smh.. If you like Lil' Wayne, I'm sorry for offending you. But in the words of one of my classmates, "He's no Pac." I miss you 80's-90's hip hop.
The only thing that I think is semi-ok on the radio today is maybe country music. And I don't even like country.
I guess this turned into another rant. Oh boy! Let me know your thoughts.. Again, this post really isn't meant to offend anyone at all. I just wanted to express my own, personal thoughts on today's music.
