So we all know about Katy Perry's hit "I Kissed a Girl". I remember a discussion about her in a thread not too long ago, but I'm gonna bring her back up for discussion. So it's nothing new that looks and money are far more important than talent in today's music industry, but it's still just frustrating to watch it happen so often while one or two skilled and devoted artists a year at the most leak through. There are a few artists that go to the open mic nights around here that can put on a downright amazing show with nothing but a guitar and their voice, but they'll probably never even get a shot at the fame people with the looks and money get to. Her voice doesn't sound natural at all, but instead like she's singing along with her own computer generated voice from the record and trying to match it. That leads me to the conclusion that she isn't dedicated to the career of her choice(singing) that she is now famous for. She's obviously having fun and doesn't look nervous at all, so her voice more than likely isn't off because of stage fright. My main point here is that she pursued a career in music without even finding her own voice. Even if your voice isn't very good, you can still find your limits and not constantly fall out of those boundaries. It pisses me off that she had her sugar daddy dump millions of dollars into something it seems she doesn't deserve. Here's one of the clips that got me onto this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDebwTnsud0&feature=related For the record no, I am not a professional musician or pursuing a career of the like. I just like to judge and still want to get under that dress^_^ If you agree, what other artists do you know like this? If you disagree, why?
