    That's the appeal for sure, but I highly doubt the music is representative of anything real. I could be wrong for sure, but I honestly think it's no different from early Taylor Swift/Justin Beiber in terms of the effect, where it's overly dramatic/sappy which teens love. Is that great writing then? Absolutely. But that also makes it formulaic. Every "young teen with the world against them" put themselves in the place of the character in Taylor Swift's Romeo and Juliet song, so its not at all surprising the next generation will put themselves in the shoes of a close equivalent, the characters in depressed/edgy Billie Eilish songs, just like how people put themselves in the shoes of a movie character, if its written well. I know I definitely did that with the Secret Life of Walter Mitty XD. Nothing wrong with that, it's just not what I look for when I listen to music I guess?

    Decision makers are not a staple of the industry. They only specify policies.

    The industry is composed of qualified professionals whose aim is to produce the best quality goods. But unfortunately, there is no such situation in music.

    Anyone with any level of knowledge can produce a product and call it music. There is no standard for its quality either. In many industries, this is not possible and people are not allowed to work in those industries until they have acquired the necessary expertise.

    We all know your stance with regards to the music industry, but may I ask respectfully if you have ever worked in the business? You have a very well formed view, but is it shaped from personal experience from inside the music business in any form or are all of your opinions those of a consumer?

    anyone want to collaborate on a BE remix where we generously sample Sun Ra, Tom Jones, and Merzbow? Maybe a little Dread Zep and Skynard. Im from Alabama.

    There's millions of better-looking junkie girls out there, instead of this petulant, whining, cross-eyed chubber.

    "The industry is composed of qualified professionals whose aim is to produce the best quality goods"

    The industry is made up of skilled professionals whose aim is to "produce goods that are as consumable as possible" - take the first light bulbs as an example, they were puncture-proof and not profitable....any consumable product already has a "set" lifespan so that the cycle is constant....
    Yes, anyone, regardless of their level of knowledge, can make a product and call it music, but to get to the "industrial grail" you have to go through professionals, professionalism is for good or evil! a "professional" provides his skills and you pay him in kind.

    To be fair there's not much to go off of when this thing stems from the cringy mess that is pop music. Pop music capitalizes on cringe, it's their specialty.

    To bring the masses down to the shit they put out and get worse by every generation like stupidity is a business. Oh wait that's exactly what it is. Just a genre that builds shit piles made from stupid, by stupid & packaged for the stupid.

    Always is replaced with even more stupid.

    The absolute stench of single uncle B.O. basements in here. Sexist big boys with nothing to look forward to, zero plans and semen-stained oven gloves.

    She is just a spokesman of the moods of her generation (15-17 y.o.)

    The same was Britney back in the 90s, wasn't she?

    And then I'd like to show all the things wider...
    for example, there is a person in the music industry,
    who's in the charts, tabloids, etc for several decades, so what?
    Once Mick Jagger said about her: "She's a voiceless fool!"
    And more, they said about her: " Her career is based on 80% marketing and 20% on the talent"

    Who's that? Madonna!

    Next: One historian and filmmaker said:

    “The dumbest provincial fool-wench is a thousand times more cunning than the smartest Nobel laureate man”

    (and the original, who those, who knows Russian:
    “Cамая тупая провинциальная дурочка в тысячу раз хитрее самого умного нобелевского лауреата”
    /Евгений Понасенков/

    Ok, but how the stated above relates with Madonna's career?
    As a whole it's very simple:
    she turned her private life, all those romances, marriages, divorces into the big marketing plan...
    this isn't just about the music, this is about pop culture and making money from it.

    billy is pretty. pretty unashamed of being fat. if people wanna be fat, that's their business though. it's like blackface. there's nothing wrong with black skin is there? nothing wrong with being a tranny or whatever. but usually the number one people who are offended by black skin or fat trannies are usually gay incel atheists. nothing wrong with gay incel atheists other than that they are offended by everything. so long story short, if thine eye offends you, knock it off and quit being such a crybaby. nothing wrong with crybabies, you're not anti-crybaby are you?
