Recently, I did something which, frankly, I have never done…I watched about an hour of the AMA awards on television. I really don’t watch this sort of stuff because who wants to watch a bunch of drugged out freaky people give themselves awards when, frankly, they already have wayyyy too much time and energy given to them for mostly mediocrity. And watching really just confirmed my view that for the most part those “entertainers” were nothing but a bunch of sold out, sold up folks who are made in the image that the music industry tells us the public wants whether it is the truth or not.
I can honestly say that after watching these folks they are not what I want to watch, emulate or have my children aspire to. Most of them sing angry sounding songs that promote ugliness, hate and bad behavior. What is up with that? Don’t people have enough of that in their lives? I mean really who wants to be brought down any lower? I just don’t get it. Why emphasize the negative when these so called “role models” could be promoting the positive. I mean these singers have all the reason in the world to be singing the praises of love, helping others and adoration because that is the life they are living. So unless they are going to help our kids, encourage them and build their confidence I would really rather that they just go home and stop wasting everyone’s time and money. If this is truly what the public wants then we are doomed.
