This is considered "music"?
This surprises you?
Everyone in the media was paid to say this and then a shit ton of people, including a large portion of /mu/, lapped it up and parroted it as truth.
At best she is a cheap imitation
I can't fucking stand autistic manchildren who judge pop stars as if they were indie rock musicians or some bullshit. Why does their makeup or outfit invalidate their music? They don't write their own songs or play their own instruments? Of course they fucking don't, they're performers. Do you not get pop music or something? Do you feel insecure liking something that is more femenine or appealing to the mainstream?
You don't have to like the music but not everything in the world needs to be sullen men emoting about first world problems over melancholy strumming.
But op, it's pop music. It's supposed to sound like shit, it's created to keep you complacent.
if popstars were judged just as that, popstars, by mainstream media, there would be no problem. the fact that they're hailed as the saviors of music and put on such a high pedestal by those who aren't musically informed is obviously going to make a bunch of hipster neckbeads on a tibetan goat husbandry fansite upset.
>Still using pentatonic runs to try to sound black
Barely better than pop
who are those pop music apologists? are you a fucking 13 y/o grill? if not why do you support this whack as garbage? we alredy have a generation of retards and attention whores growing, do you want people to become even dumber? keep pushing this shit bitch ass fool
where the fuck did you get that from?
i'm saying shitty pop is something i've expected most 16+ year olds would already have accepted and ignored by now, but this thread makes sense as her music has been defended here, and it's good arguments against it are being made
those posts were like "who carezzzz??" but it makes sense to get pissed when this is a board meant to discuss music
Pop music doesn't make people dumber. Whateve shit you listen to is marketed just as aggressively to a different crowd that gets off on feeling "alternative" and "different" from their peers. How do you think Pitchfork and its billion close sites support themselves? By NOT having The War on Drugs on each of their year-end lists?
Face it, you get angry splitting hairs over petty lowbrow culture bullshit because you don't know any better and feel the need to hinge your identity on listening to this kind of pop or that kind of pop. People with taste don't feel the need to belitte Ariana fucking Grande.
>le nazi pic just to confirm you're underaged
>Not at least feeling satisfied having delveloped a unique music taste.
Nobody honestly cares about music anymore. modern Western pop music is ambiance for decadence. because Western society itself is decadent.
why do people so hate this truth bomb
>pop music doesnt make people dumber
not only pop many thing do, consumerist culture, commercials, news, books, newspapers....you dont need to be a hipster neckbeard on taiwanese monkey dance off music producer site to realize this...everything around us is designed to make us stupid, pop music is one of the strongest of those things (for lots of reasons, i can tell em if you want to know) pop music is the strongest medium of the dumbization of the world. its real man
ps nazi pic is just random, i thought the thin guy is cute
I can't fucking stand pathetic whiteknights who judge pop stars based on how sexy they are and how hyped they are by the media and record companies. Why doesn't the fact that these artists are considered by so many as the second coming of Christ bother you at least a little bit? Do you like to slurp up everything you're fed or something? Do you feel secure liking something that everyone else likes and you are told is the greatest thing ever and that you mostly find appealing because you fall so hard and easy for a good looking woman who prances around in sexy music videos and makes your pee-pee get big and feel funny?
You don't have to hate the music but there is something to be said for calling out the idiots who vastly overrate certain things and telling them to tone the bullshit down in favor of music that is objectively superior and doesn't resort to using sex, drugs, alcohol, partying, promiscuity, and other detrimental themes in order to sell more records and influence misguided shit-for-parents youth.
Aww, does it bother you when people modify your own comment and use it against you?
Okay anon, but why do you teem with resentment? Why can't you let go of that calcified teen angst and finally accept that other people don't necessarily agree with your music taste?
>"stop critiquing my favorite pop musicians!!! pop musicians are immune from critique because they're pop musicians!!!"
>It's pop music so it's alright if it's shit
I swear to god it's just terrible lyricists speaking over sampled techno at this point. You can't justify this.
It's not about agreeing. It's about turning the mind control machines the government and corporations have installed in our culture off, and helping people find real world experiences.
it's in this way pop music is among the worst manifestation of capitalist degeneracy. It cuts us off from the music of the people around us and tunes us into the pocketbooks of the wealthy.
My daughter likes this girl and listens to her shit all the time.
No matter how much chvrches/lauren hill/death grips/broods/swv/digable planets/st vincent/ariel pink etc I load on her ipod, she always ends up listening to what other girls at school thinks is cool.
>'Cause if you want to keep me, you gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, got to love me harder
>And if you really need me, you gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, got to love me harder

>Harder, harder, harder

I hope your daughter is at least 18 anon, otherwise you're a shit father for allowing her to listen to such music.
i don't know what to call this. you're like the dad that shows his kids REAL MUSIC (pink floyd, the beatles, etc) at a young age and they grow up to be dadrocking fucks. you're doing the opposite and showing your kid p4kcore. what does this mean the kid is called? indiebabby? avant toddler?
dunno about real blacks, but its the small things like using the word "mayne" "ya hurd" "ya dig" etc. etc. just small details that make me uncover a fake black person, i think afribot is a fake black person, i have a variety of proofs for it
>bobby "OOGA BOOGA ME BOBBY BITCH" shmurda will go to jail in your lifetime
yeah this THIS. its those short phrases he types out, i cam easily imagine a mexican/caucasian person sitting in his dormroom with a joint on the side and the synth on the other side, he just sits there with his 2000 dollar laptop and types a bunch of nonsense, he never gets upset or makes any mistake, he is too smart and calculated. he probably is in UNI

Heavens, won't somebody think of the children?
