Have no idea where this young lady's career will go. All the best to her.
I was upset about the psychology of her, and how we have seen what can happen to young stars, and that this crap was forced into every home anyway.
I didn't even know MTV still existed, haven't had cable since MTV's beginning days. Didn't like media forcing it on me at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it being worse then someone buying a pole for their bedroom.
I do think the bigger issue is that pop is no longer any form of art, at least for me. But then I was spoiled with some of the best performers, Michael Jackson excelled in all areas (regardless his personal issues he was a heck of a performer, writer, and choreographer).
I would like to see pop and not punk outrage return. Again, back to art, not outrageous. Elegance, grace and beauty included.
I still get The Sex Pistols with this, only now it is generally accepted.
My DD asked me about 15 years ago what love songs were like, what are pop songs about, what is music about. She hated the music and videos of her age. She was a young teen at 14 and wanted to hear music other than what was supplied for her age group at that time. (She had a BF for that age group, I had exposed her to all art including many kinds of music, but now she wanted copies of music and the history.) It has not improved.
I am reminded of Pu Yi, his only close ones, and the manipulation of him (and his loved ones via drugs for his close ones) throughout a lifetime so that another country can take control. The fall of a nation by insuring they are all too high on whatever it may be, ego, money, drugs, alcohol, via the young ones.
ETA: Of course her parents applaud her. She is their child. She is also their connection and $$$ bringer. When she realizes America did not choose to see her and be pervy, that her parents are the ones that chose, and her Disney Contract, she will lose it. I hope not, actually, it may be best she stays high and forgets about it. However, her current trend does not suggest that. Her current trend is blaming, but not getting to the root. MOO
