" a lot of her stuff is better than rap or screamo" - Is that really saying much though? Also, Zeppelin was better than Elvis. Nirvana was better than Whitesnake. Music historically always out does what came before it. We're in an era where for the first time the majority of the new stuff is WORSE than the old.
It's an opinion to my nana music started going backwards. It's just what happens. I love led zeppelin and Nirvana and the new generation does have some great and unique bands such as saint motel and the revivalist. Just seems that people chose someone I don't enjoy as much.
"What does it say about humanity when a young girl can’t be happy and enjoy her awards because people insult her for it?" - It says society know when an artist is full of shit and knows she's winning awards because her brother is an actor and her parents have connections in the industry. You want to explain to me how she was signed to a record label before having a single song finished? Have you not seen footage of her concerts where she goes on stage and practically talks and complains through her songs while forgetting lyrics even though she's "singing" to a backing vocal track?I take it you also haven't heard her songs and noticed how bland they are? It's literally her whispering into a computer while her brother writes all the songs.
Yes I have heard her songs, and although I don’t like some of them I do like others. But I also know better than to shame someone for the awards they have won, because I’m not a shitty human being. And so what if her parents have connections? There are plenty of other artists that have connections that helped them get where they are, I’m not sure how that relates to any of this? She isn’t her brother, she isn’t actor, so I don’t quite get what you were trying to do with that. It’s really not that hard to respect another human being, even if you don’t like their work. It doesn’t kill you to show a bit of kindness to others man. You’re old enough to know that.
And I’ve seen her concerts, my best friends have been to her concerts. Just because you’ve seen a few bad videos doesn’t mean it happens at every concert, she’s actually a really lovely girl. But people want to bring her down because they don’t like her music. She’s still a kid dude. You’re a grown man.
So I'm not allowed to say music sucks because the artist is a teenager? I'm a nobody who works a 9-5 and plays guitar in his bedroom, I and most of my friends who are also nobodies are better musicians than her. I'm not allowed to say that? When I was 18 I was a trash ass guitarist and all those recordings are trash. I wouldn't DARE take any of that to a record label. Look up videos about her. She admits this herself and has practically admitted that her brother gave her all the throw-away songs from his own band and just had her mumble bullshit into a mic which he fixed up later on with vocal effects. She sounds decent at concerts sometimes because she sings to BACKING TRACKS, anyone with an ear for music can hear it. I mention her brother because her brother is an actor but he used to be in a band that never took off. He took the bands songs which HE WROTE and had her sing over them.
I never said that you weren’t allowed to have an opinion, I just said what is the point in being rude about it? You can dislike something without insulting it. Dude, I don’t need to look up videos of her. I have a lot of her songs downloaded because I like them, not all of them are mumbling either. Like I said, I don’t like all of her songs but I’m not going to insult her or make a post about how the music industry ruined because of a few songs I don’t like, that’s just a bit dramatic.Again, your point being? The majority of celebrities don’t write their own songs, most artists claim songs that were written for other artists that didn’t like them. It’s how the industry works. I’m still failing to understand what point you’re trying to prove? That she has a brother in the industry and she sang his songs?
"The majority of celebrities don’t write their own songs, most artists claim songs that were written for other artists that didn’t like them" - Then why is the media making her out to be this huge hero for girls who "do it on their own"? She didn't do shit on her own. As if she's the first women in history to be a successful musician or win a grammy? You forget Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey (real singers) have won grammys?I'm not saying the music industry is destroyed because of her. The music industry has gone to hell for years. The problem with last night's grammys is that they literally gave the two most important awards of the night to a soundcloud/youtube artist that posts generic music. Why on EARTH would they give her Best Alternative Rock awards at the AMAs? ROCK? Are you kidding me?
"This is exactly why she didn’t want to win anymore Grammys" - Think about it. Why would she already be nervous about winning Grammys to the point she didn't want anymore? Could it be that she knew she deserves the criticism?
I’ll say it one last time because this isn’t going anywhere. People like you are why she didn’t want to win. The exact comments that you are making is why she didn’t want to win. You don’t like her music? That’s fine, nobody says you have to. But was this post really necessary?
My favourite artist lost to Billie Eilish and didn’t win any other awards, I’m not making any posts slamming her for it though. I’m happy for her, even if I don’t agree with the fact she won against certain others. I’m still happy for her but I’m also sad that she can’t enjoy her awards without people making her feel like she doesn’t deserve them. Because she does, she wouldn’t have won them otherwise. Not everyone is going to like the same type of music, but a lot of people love her music. She and Whitney can’t even be compared because they sing two completely different types of styles. It’s like comparing opera to rap. You can’t. There are different styles and different people. Don’t be so bitter, move on, there’s other things to worry about than a teenager winning a few grammy’s.
Bitter about what? I'm shitposting on a website.. You're legit MAD. Billie Eillish beat out nothing but garbage. The other nominees were trash. I'm not angry, had any of the new song and best album nominees won I'd still be here talking shit. The industry is reaching the point where youtube and soundcloud trolls are winning grammys and that's weird. The USA has a very strong musical history, now we're in a sort of dark age for decent music. I'm not comparing BIllie to WHitney Houston, do you know how to read? I'm saying people need to stop making Billie Eillish into some feminist girl power hero because she wrote some songs - MANY WOMEN HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL ARTISTS IN THE PAST. Are you able to understand that?
