Hey guys! :)
So I just heard that Rebecca Black is coming out with a new single and a five track EP.
I know a lot of people are thinking, "why do we care? We're Linkin Park fans, and her music isn't in the same league as LP." that may be true, but can you really justify your opinion?
Sure, many people would call her single "Friday" a disgrace to the music industry, but who are you to judge that? Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but to go as far to say that people want to kill Rebecca (a 13 year old girl) for her music is just ridiculous. Of course, society has a lot to blame for this.
Music should be judged by raw talent (in my opinion) but in todays music industry, its all about mainstream. Its all about who can sell the most singles and make the "best" pop song. Artists are going as far as auto-tuning their voices just to fit into the mainstream category.
In todays society, people have the need to justify their music tastes and to do that they seem to think bashing a 13 year old, (or any other music genre/artist that they dont like) does that. As I've said before, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but saying you want to harm someone for the music they make is just wrong.
By 'hating' Rebecca Black's music and bringing more attention to it, you're just making her (and any other artist/genre) more successful.
All in all, my point is that artists are people too. (Even Rebecca Black) So saying horrible things about her (like you want to kill her) isnt helping anything. I understand disliking someone's music, but you have to draw a line somewhere.
And I was just using Rebecca Black as an example because of her new EP. You can replace her name with anyone else if ya want! ;)
