Is the mainstream music industry a reflection of our own society and morals?
When you look at the cause of our economic problems such as Wall Street taking bad risks in order to make a profit, people not living within their means by spending and not saving, and the lack of good policies and oversight due to our corrupt government lawmakers that are paid off by corporate lobbyists, it is easy to say that the problem is greed. When you look at modern day television, it inspires you to want wealth and luxury. Look at all the reality shows about the rich and famous and the media attention they get. Look at all the TV ads with a message saying that you are not a real successful person until you have this product or item. Many kids in America are bipolar and depressed because they are not rich and famous. Who can blame them when they are always told that being economically wealthy is a NORMAL THING. Nowadays you see this attitude in the mainstream music industry. Many popular songs on the radio are about glamor, glitter, and gold talking about bling bling and the expensive cars that they have not driven yet. I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of these pop stars talking about their money and how good they look and all the women or men they have. This creates insecurity and greed among our youth. So here is the question. Is the mainstream music industry a reflection of our own society and morals? Post a comment on this blog.
