I feel like music in America on the pop culture side is more of a machine than ever before. I mean look what they are doing to Carrie Underwood. I don’t even like country music but she was surrounded by dancers doing some weird fusion between hip hop and line dancing. She is currently fully controlled by the machine. I feel bad for her, she probably can’t even control it. She didn’t even look that excited at the end of her performance. To me her face said, this is just what I have to do.
Unfortunately in the American music industry, the music and the craft is not the focus, it is the incredible over production and pyrotechnics that is the focus. Take J Lo’s performance. Anybody could have done that, she is just a face and a celebrity that executives can stick in the machine and make money.
The over sexualization and sensuality is so unoriginal and uncreative aside from what it is doing to us in terms of the erosion of morals and modesty in our nation. It’s incredibly non artistic and non creative. Its just white noise filler for uncreative producers who obviously have no original thoughts.
I appreciate artists who are actually talented and creative. I like production when it’s original and creative and not just some pyrotechnics and scantily clad women and flashing lights.
We need an overhaul of mainstream American music and I doubt it will ever come. The silver lining here is that the stage has never been set better for the church to be the most creative place on the planet.
