    Nothing was stopping My Heart Will Go On for Record of the Year in 1999, but I suspect that Madonna’s Ray of Light was second.

    Believe it or not, I read some analysis of the awards that year and Madonna was actually the frontrunner. Her song was a big hit and highly acclaimed, plus the fact that she had recently been in a hit movie and was already pretty much a music legend by that point. Too bad she didn’t win, the song is great and far better than the sappy, overly trite “My Heart Will Go On”.

    Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” is by no means one of the best songs of the past decade. I found its place at #1 on Rolling Stones’ list, and the list as a whole, as an insult to the 2010’s.

    Robyn has always been tremendously overrated. She gets what Madonna and Kylie Minogue deserve.

    Madonna already got what she deserves and some more, she’s just not cool enough for the critics anymore and even she’s at peace with that.

    Kylie Minogue is an overrated hack who made one actual great album but got scared back into mediocrity by its commercial flop. Impossible Princess really was the moment though.

    If you’re a big star with a big platform you have a duty to speak up when rights are under assault, yes.

     

    No, they’re music artists. Not political activists. I wanna hear music from them. I couldn’t care less about their political opinions.

    They don’t have to speak up about anything if they don’t want to. It’s not their job to talk about those issues.

    From a pop artist I want catchy music. That’s all they’re supposed to make. Not political messages just to be politically correct and make the trendy minority of the moment happy. Because that’s all it is. They speak up to get points with the PC crowds.

     

    I’m fed up with this generation of politically correctness. It’s just phoney for a start and we’re at a point where everyone gets offended about any stupid thing.

    You don’t defend rights with a few words in a song or an IG post. That’s easy.
    I know countless people who had the rainbow for the gay marriage thing on fb or the Je Suis Charlie pic and then they call someone a f** or attack someone for their opinions. People do these things online just to look good and they’re like sheep coping what others do to fit in.
    I never done any of that social media crap PC stuff and I respect homosexuals and people’s opinions more than those PC fans.

    This is my opinion and that’s yours. I am not gonna call you names or offend you because you have a different opinion on the matter.

    Thought I was crazy until I read this. Shit’s becoming rather annoying and cliche. Like, there’s nothing “rebellious” or new about a movement these days when these celebs and corporations back you like white on rice.

    What’s even more irritating is the few who speak their genuine opinions and refuse to pretend and be fake like the rest but get “cancelled” for it.

    Honestly, I don’t get why the hell I was ever interested in Hollywood. The Emmys were shit, couldn’t even make it halfway through. The Oscars will definitely be shit especially starting from 2024. The Grammys haven’t “pledged” anything too serious yet, so, they’re still cool in my book. Couldn’t give a fuck about Tonys. I’m just here nowadays because predicting something is oddly fun. But that I actually give a damn who wins, not anymore. I genuinely used to, but after all the wokeness in Hollywood, it’s all rotten shit now.

    I’m mixed about popular artists spewing politics.

    I dislike hactivism as much as anyone and I do think there are often too many times where money and corporate powers take over real movements or positions. Capitalism undermines a lot of true political statements that can be made. As a gay man of a certain age, I kind of found Lady Gaga to be seriously pandering when she first came out and was getting it big because of course she’ll be touting the LGBTQ community (mostly white clubby attractive men) because she was developing a devoted and loyal fanbase and that’s who her initial audiences were when she was performing “Just Dance” at the gay club scene around the country. Think Erika Jayne but not backed by a rich sugar daddy husband. I also think by 2008, it wasn’t THAT much of a risk for her to back the gays. Not like it was the 1980s or prior or at the height of the AIDS scare. But at least she stood for something.

    I also have no interest in undereducated (either formal education or real street education by roughing it as a real starving artist for years) pop singers trying to lecture me about stuff either. It’s like what do you know? But the ones that actually take the time to learn and give space to others to speak and use their platform to educate are at least trying and if it comes from a sincere place, then good for them.

    IMO, pop music is pop music. But pop music can be truly meaningful if artists actually educate themselves, become truly aware, and use their art to say something. The best art isn’t just mere entertainment but has something to say about life. Not just platitudes either.

    I also think those who really dislike it when artists use their platform to raise awareness, and I mean really dislike it, don’t actually dislike that so much as WHAT politics they are expressing. That’s what really gets their goat and I’m not about joining a choir of “shut up and sing” either.
