What happened to pop music that used to have real meaning to it, and could make a point without trying too hard? What happened to the pop artists that had more of a gift to sing a tune and to make a meaning without relying on their image to speak for it? These days, seems like every pop song out there is about stripping off your clothes to be hot and sexy, about partying till you are drunk, and about boring sex that doesn’t have no point or meaning it. Of course you know some of those artist, so I won’t name them (cough Britney Spears, cough Christina Aguilera, cough Janet Jackson, cough Justin Timberlake, cough Jessica Simpson).
It’s getting old already, I mean don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, I love sex, but sometimes it just gets so old and annoying that there are barely any artist out there that can sing a song and just be sexy without trying. I don’t know why just taking off your clothes on stage is considered sexy, I consider it to be boring and leaving nothing to the imagination.
I consider artist like Alanis Morissette or somebody that can sing a song and happen to be very sexy without having to show their sexy underwear and their bras. I mean what about the young kids that still look up to Britney and Christina, and somehow get their new albums from somebody and think; oh I should have sex with my brother to try it out just like the song says I can! See, that’s where problem starts.
I’m not just blaming Britney and Christina of course, pretty much just the many artists who don’t seem to be original or creative enough to think of real music through their head instead of through their sexual organs. I mean c’mon, a lot of meaning and a point can be made into even a sexy song without it having to be so forced. For instance Marvin Gaye, he sung songs that were so sensual, and it was meaningful, and the lyrics were simple yet just classic. And Madonna, even her songs were simple yet just unique and simple, and there didn’t have to be so much of synthesizers and stuff to make it sound good. And at least they sung about other things besides sex.
These days, too many artist sing about sex, and it’s corrupting these little kids that don’t know anything about real sex and real love! Where’s the common sense in this world!
