    The needless cries for diversity are doing more damage than they are doing any good. This isn’t the Emmys section, but there were a lot of far more deserving talents probably snubbed at the hands of the Television Academy trying to achieve “diversity,” although this is just my speculation as well the speculation of many others.

    But look at this: When people ignorantly chant “lack of diversity,” what are they actually implying? They’re indirectly advocating for quotas on the basis of race alone, which should have no business when rewarding the arts. I don’t know when common sense escaped society, I don’t know when the needless lie that “diversity makes things better” rose its head in society, but there’s no scientific fact proving so and it simply is a baseless claim.

    I still love Michelle . She was really underrated as a Vocalist. Listening to her sing live had me surprised.

    Explaining the flops of older artists (in detail) is and always will be pointless. Every artist in the history of the music business has declined over the years/decades. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Celine Dion, Eminem, Britney Spears,… everyone is called a flop at some time. Some had a huge initial debut and are measured up to this standard the rest of their careers, being called flop left and right. Artists tried everything to prevent this: promotion, marketing, new sounds, new formula, new genre, collabs,… but in the end NOTHING stops the decline. Also radio choose to play young and fresh artists over the older ones at a certain point. Record labels invest more money in promoting new talent instead of the old rooster.

    So yeah, i’ve read many essays about huge artists 20+ years in the business and why their new project failed in sales/streams/on the charts. But the explanation is simple, every artist declines.

    Is it the same for Rock bands? I mean, Metallica and a lot of mainstay rock bands could drop an album in the next few minutes and it would top the charts. A lot of rock bands have serious cult following.

    I think this decline is greatly suffered by majorly pop artists, especially the ones who rely too much on sex appeal.

    Yes also rock bands. They sold Millions and Millions of albums not just after the initial hype, but also very well over the next months after release. Now there is just the initial hype the cult following creates, selling overall way less than they did in previous decades. Not sure when the last rock band had a 5 Million seller, it‘s been a while.

    thank u next (album) should have won the album of the year Grammy. Such a fantastic pop record. So beautifully autobiographical. I don’t know if Ari will ever top this. I hope she does.

    Hello no. It was Billie vs. Lana from the days nominations were announced. Great album but tough competition.

    Maybe. Radiohead were widely regarded as overdue and In Rainbows did very well critically and commercially. In Rainbows definitely would’ve been my pick for AOTY that year.
