Teens and Pop Music

30 Jun

What has happened to pop music and where does this come from?

Well, I had time to think about this over the course of a few days. And here and there, music conversations would come up. Now, I am just finally over the age of the “teenagers” and my generation is growing up from that stage (20).  And as I grow up, I’m still a bit in tuned with what is popular today.

I come from Generation Next. I realized our generation was the one’s who ruined music forever. Though we did not produce it, or make it, or sing it when bad music first began, we were the ones who supported it and asked for more. How did I finally come to this conclusion?

Well, after constantly reviewing rants on youtube, I’ve been examining the several generations. The one before us was a part of a generation known as “Libras”. They were the generation that had “relationship problems” and they are the generation that hate the world and hate prejudice, racism, inequality, and their rants are mostly on that—though they occasionally rant on music.

Generation Next mostly rants about the bad television nowadays, which we supported good movies and television for children. However, when it comes to music…it ends.

Our generation was born mid-way in 1983, but mostly 1984 to midway 1995, mostly 1994. That is the end of our generation. We are called “Scorpio” generation. We have issues related to sex, violence, and the occult. Also we like sci-fi….Our generation, was the first generation to receive music specifically designed for teens.

Though there had been many teen/kid acts in the ’70s like the Jackson 5, The Osmonds, and other famous acts…most of them were group acts. And when there are group acts…well, they tend to range from many different ages, so the music becomes more universal, and more “family oriented”. Especially because they were all different ages. They had to had songs that related to kids, teens, and adults.

Even with Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys, it had to be more universal. The youngest in their groups were around 18. But there were plenty of ages, making them not a “teen/kid” act completely. The songs also had to relate to all people within the group.

But then the “teeny bopper” solo act came out. Britney Spears. She was the first teen solo act to ever make it that big…and why? Well, because our generation was “tweens” and for some reason, instead of playing with dolls at age 10, we bought CDs…..Even channels like Disney Channel and Nickelodeon promoted pop sensations and pop music.

Now look at what we destroyed. We destroyed music. We let the less experienced, less intelligent, “tweens” run the music industry, who is more concerned about how a person looks rather than actual talent. Sad isn’t it?

This is the result:

    What we’re now seeing is a mish-mash of absolute crap in the world pop music. It’s manufactured bubble gum diatribe for the mentally challenged !

    Real music out now is coming from the very gifted and truly talented.

    Alicia Keys fits the bill as to what I’m talking about in terms of being gifted and extremely talented as an artist.

      Absolutely agree with you! This world of pop music is just completely crap!

      But Alicia Keys has the talent.

        Keys has more than talent as she’s class personified. I mean Britney Spears and Miley “I’m Give Got Horse Teeth” Cyrus ? God-damn talk about crap or what ? Never mind the likes of Gaga and Katie Perry ! I’ve kissed a girl as well and I liked it ! And I’ve had sex with women and I liked it …… need I say anymore on the matter ?

        LOL Definitely. The others are obviously trying to get attention. They basically had to exploit themselves to get some fame. Alicia gets fame through pure talent.

    And now you the tweens’ favorite Miley Cyrus revamping herself as a adult oriented pop star. How long before the porn video comes out so that she can then attain a further 15 minutes of fame ?
