Michael Jackson, unfortunately, has been gone for almost seven years and people just spit all over his legacy and everything he stood for. Not long ago, the word on the street was that a European actor was going to play Michael Jackson in an upcoming movie. The fans were furious, as they should have been. Michael Jackson had self-esteem issues I’m sure, but I’m pretty sure Michael Jackson was proud of his heritage. Do you really believe Michael Jackson deserves to have a European guy play him? How come we never have black actors playing famous white people? This is industry is such a sad joke.
However, this isn’t what bothered me the most. What bothered me was that according to internet reports such as the Vanity Fair, Rihanna has now surpassed Michael Jackson in terms of making the Billboard charts and I was so DONE. How on earth did such a non- talented, slutty, and attitudinal chick like Rihanna surpass a MULTI-TALENTED, LEGEND like Michael Jackson??? It just doesn’t make sense to me folks! I’m having a problem with this. I can’t grasp it. I already hate 99% of this mainstream garbage on the radio because the majority of it is just trap garbage with a bunch of morons screaming ghetto sayings that most sane people don’t understand. Am I wrong?
I’m sorry, but Rihanna is NO legend! Rihanna, Beyonce, Chris Brown, Tyga, Future, Drake, Fetty Wap, Nicki Minaj, and so many others make what I call THOT music. It’s not real music. It’s just NOISE for the times and then it blows with the wind and becomes forgettable. It’s not timeless like the music of the 50s to the early 2000s. It’s just straight trash with a catchy beat. It doesn’t inspire you to be anything or become anything. It inspires you to be a drug addicted, loose, twerking, ignorant loser. Now maybe I’m being too harsh, but when is the last time you’ve heard a song of this era that inspires you to be anything? Yes we have talented artists like John Legend and Neyo, but they are few and far in between. They are a very small minority.
Not too long ago they were comparing Adele, who is also an average singer to me, to Whitney Houston. OK, yes Whitney had drug issues and was a hot mess sometimes, but Whitney had one of the greatest voices ever in music. Period. Adele should never be mentioned in the same sentence with Whitney. Just like Rihanna shouldn’t be put on a pedestal with Michael Jackson. For one thing, neither women have been out long enough to surpass these late legends. It’s just very offensive to those of us out here who love real music and especially real soul music. This thot, trap garbage blows with the wind. It has INFECTED almost every music genre, which is why most of what you hear now all sounds the same. Do you really think 30 years from now people will be reminiscing about this era of music and songs like Work and Call Me On My Cell Phone? LOL! I bet we’ll be hearing the O’Jays, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, SWV, Aaliyah, Tupac, Nas, DMX, New Edition, Patti Labelle, and etc. though!
Then people wonder why the ratings for these award shows and televised events relating to entertainment are dropping every year. It’s because the industry has a HUGE void of actual talent! The entertainment industry needs to get it together and stop giving out awards to people who don’t deserve it! They need to stop playing garbage on the radio and paying dust to the real, hard working singers who struggle to put out real music!
That’s not it either. They need to stop putting out horrible movies and casting the same old, mediocre, tired actors to play in them. Hollywood, the music industry, the sports industry, and the fashion industry all need more diversity! The 1990s had ALL those things so why do the 2010s suck so bad? Do you think social media has had a huge impact on what’s popular now?
