A Rhetorical Question.... (see comments)
OK, here's a question that I haven't received an acceptable answer to: Is she extremely popular because the mass public really likes her and idolizes her OR is it because she is shoved down the public's throat by TPTB (the powers that be)? And it's not just her, it's the Jonas Brothers, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, etc etc etc. If I were a young, talented but overlooked artist in the music business and I was good (and knew it), I would be so pissed off at TPTB (remember them?) that I would seriously think about quitting. Example: as I type this, I have Shannon Wurst on Winamp right now, and if anyone out there says "who?" you make my point, and I'm going to reach through my computer and smack you upside the head. Maybe it's better this way. The artists I mostly listen to and follow are virtually unknown. I can send emails to them, tell them how much I like their music, buy their CD's personalized to me, etc. Just ask Swiftie here for a signed CD and see how far you get. I leave you now, 'cause it's time for my morning walk and maybe I'll get rid of some of this negative energy. I'll be back!
