God Fathers of Art…Its all Crap

What makes a mainstream artist?  Talent, skill, originality, or creativity?  I don’t think so.  These 3 brothers are on top of the world right now selling their hit songs and albums.  There fan base is enormous but there music can only be described by one word, “crap.”  They have flashy hair styles and big contracts with Nickelodeon and Disney, but do they deserve to be called musicians.  They play guitars and they sing, but their music is just a continuous representation of the previous.  On a more literal side, we see Duchamp’s art titled “Fountain.”  It is a famous piece of work but it is nothing more than a toilet.  No more, no less.  Just because art can sell records or become famous, it does not mean the content of their work is worthy.  Why do we as a society, allow for these types of talentless products become the popular social norm?

    actually i think it takes more talent to display a urinal as a serious piece of artwork and actually receive praise for it instead of criticism.

    Duchamp is a fucking genius for getting famous on something so simple.

    Cause the media told us that they are good, so we decide to believe them. Most mainstream artists have a similar sound so big record labels are certain that they will make more money rather than taking a chance on music that isnt considered mainstream. Its weird though when a record label decides to sign an underground artist because their music is popular but tells them to change their sound so it will fit with the mainstream.
    I cannot see the significance of a picture of a toilet but because its so simple and weird, its gotta be good

    I think the answer to this is maybe that people listen to music for social reasons. if they hear that something is popular they want to go with the majority so they would feel more apart of the group.
    The other reason is that many people aren’t musicians so they have a hard time knowing what is “crap”.

    Well Art is just Entertainment anyway, as long as people are happy listening to Jonas Brothers are there any complaint?

    BUT THERE IS! there is because by people buying the Jonas Brothers records its driving away the real Artists away, because that would lower the real artist’s record sales.
    Many true music fans will be lost, which means many true musicians wouldn’t emerge.

    The Jonas Brothers are famous because they’re products of the Disney machine, and their entire fanbase is comprised of pre-pubescent school girls and undersexed house wives.

  5. Uh, I’m not an under-sexed housewife, and last I checked I passed puberty (still waiting on some body parts though)… and you know what, I enjoy the Jonas Brothers. I don’t like MOST of their music, but some songs are decent.

    I think people bag on the Jonas Brothers a lot because they’re easy targets to hit. Having a little sister myself, I’m happy she likes this type of music. Sure, it’s not for the demo of this blog, but they’re mighty awesome role models for children. They advocate strong values, and I think they’re DECENT musicians and songwriters.

    If I was a parent I’d be counting my blessings to have a group like the Jonas Brothers around for my children to enjoy.

  6. CORRECTION ASTRANGERWITHCANDY!!!

  7. The machine? the jonas brothers are just a part of that corporate machine, like many and most other popular musicians today. How can we as a culture put an end to fame and fortune for these crap entertainers?
