Lady Gaga is a good singer and I appreciate her music just because she isn't like most artists today that use autotune and make the voice sound less crappy than the crap that actually is. She is one of the only "popular" music artists I like. the only thing that i dont like about Lady Gaga is that she tries to be so controversial and attention-getting (with meatdress and everything) but she doesn't need that because she is a good artist. people hate her because of that, not because the her music.
Its The same deal with Justin Bieber. people think that he's so horrible just because he's crazy popular with teenyboppers. People just see what he looks like and automatically think he is "stupid" they dont actually take the time to really appreciate the music. I'm not saying I'm a huge Justin Bieber fan ( Unlike most people my age) but he just seems like he is a good guy. He does have a nice voice, I just don't appreciate his trying to rap, when in reality, he is a 17 year old white boy from Canada. (not that Canada is bad or anything. I go there for a month every summer because we have a lake house, and it's pretty awsome there).
As said before, it's almost like how the Beatles got popular. They were first really popular with girls or teenyboppers because if their looks, and guys thought that they were stupid and girly.
I wonder if Justin Bieber will (in the future) be like the Beatles, in that he wilI start taking drugs and then start writing different styles of music, and gain a wider votary of fans. If you think about it once the beatles sang more folk or classic rock music, their fans went from girls (or teenyboppers) to guys and artsy folk music fans. all the people I know now in real life who are really big Beatles fans are guys. And I know I'm going to get a lot of crap for this but will Justin Bieber eventually become the next Beatles? I don't really think it will happen, but only time will tell.
I'm a side note (because I had so much to say) I recorded this with my iPods Dragon dictation app it actually works quite well so it's free you should try it. If some of my sentences have weird grammar structure ( run on sentences) or missing capitalized letters, I'm sorry.

Your post came out well Mrs. McCarrison.
Personally i think Justin will slowly disappear as his audience grows up. He certainly cant act if his appearances in CSI are anything to go by.

I agree with both of those statements: that was a good post and Justil will eventually disappear.
I guess I feel like the Beatles sort of "invented" their own "look", but so many of the people who are famous nowadays are just fitting into a template of a "look", and they are still appreciated. I admire artists who do their own thing. I tire of seeing the same thing over and over again: a rapper, another rapper, ANOTHER rapper, someone who makes a generic dance beat, someone who makes ANOTHER dance beat…..and so on.

I also aggree with that. He probably will fade out, but you never know. I'm not saying I want Justin bieber to be te next Beatles, it's just an interesting thing to think about. And JET! I completely get what your saying. Artists are just beter when they do their own thing, and not try and fit into the mold that society has made for them.

There have been hundreds of acts labelled as 'the next beatles' and none have have anywhere close to being able to see the beatles dim headlights in the way-off distance. Its more a way of hyping the artist/band that being a statement of fact.
The same goes whether its the 'new' Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Freddie Mercury, Spice Girls etc, which have all been designated to up and coming acts, most you never hear of again.

Bieber will fade, although when I was forced to listen to a snippet of his Christmas album (was watching football and a clip was played on the station), they aren't that bad. Nothing I'd ever buy, god no, but not bad. But, I think who says "Band X are the Next Beatles" matters. Because, a TMZ reporter saying it? Couldn't Care Less. Tom Powers on CBC Radio Two Drive a couple of months back? I'm more inclined to entertain the theory because of who says it. And the fact he said Arcade Fire was (well, said they could be Canada's Beatles) made me agree. It depends of the source.

I agree that it's unfair that people think so bad about Lady Gaga…. I think she is a great musician. She shows at every live performance that she has a great voice and that she is a real artist. I was at a concert once and I didn't regret it. I think people should give her a chance. Just because she likes to wear eccentric outfits to catch attention, it doesn't mean that she couldn't be a great artist. It just shows that the society judges her without listening to the actual music.

Meh, I haven't heard enough of her music to judge. She's not that bad, although we do pick on her a little in my family:
[Polythene Dan and JoJo playing "Harry Potter"]
Polythene Dan [robotic voice]: 1 + 2 = 7. The sky is yellow. Lady Gaga's outfits are both modest and tasteful.
As you can see, it's just the outfits. We don't really rip on anything else.
(Side note: I'd say that out of the "popular" artists, Adele's my favorite.)
