I watched the Grammys a couple of nights ago for the first time in years, simply because my husband was busy doing office work and my daughter was facetiming her posy in her bedroom which left me alone with the remote control on the couch..i should have picked up my book and put the stereo on instead when I think about it now, but I cant help myself from watching television train wrecks..its kinda of a problem that leads me to laughter, which I guess is in the end is great therapy..
while I believe it is wonderful that music industry pays credit to its “music” and its musicians and we applaud and buy into the rise of a star being born and contribute to their fortune treating them like gods but if find myself asking…………WHY..i can still remember clearly when the world got milli vanillied..seriously, without the engineers that actually create the artist to be who they are, I realized a lot of them are just average if not below joe singers being supersized by a team of specialists who in actuality really deserve the Grammy more so for their incredible disguise work..
it got me to think about all the people in general we ignorantly elevate out of consumer creative misconception who truly don’t really deserve the recognition and platform that they perch from.. there are far more talented people overlooked and purposely unnoticed because of the real magic that exudes from them that is electric while not fitting the ideology that society deems important and also not buyable..
i can only imagine the fear behind the mediocre people that have been molded into super beings that are one drop away from being found out about..i mean come on, you can only fake it so much before you start to show bits and pieces of the real you underneath all the get up and disguises the CFO who owns you makes you wear purposely..i just cant wrap my head around it, even though I have somehow subscribed to it by playing and going along with it all unknowingly knowing at the same time..
why do we make, push and turn people into what they are not supposed to be, and more importantly why do people sell their souls for the dollar high club..how many times have you met someone and then assumed a criteria and expectation for them, that had massive strings attached creating a puppet master relationship when it wasn’t even who they were from the first place..i mean, I can admit I think I have been on both sides being the puppet too afraid to cut strings, and then have been the puppeteer abusing the power of control trying to create someone into something that they aren’t and never will be..
I mean, I see a lot of parents representing their children to be something that in essence is who they will never be because it fits the ego and the status they the parents wish to be present in..its easy to manipulate and suggest to our kids ideas and strategies to serve your selfish purpose, whitewashing for all matters and scrubbing the authenticity while reprogramming them to believe something farthest from the truth..and then scratching your head wonder why they are so fucked up…hmmm
I remember the day I found out milli vanilli wasn’t who they appeared to be, and I was dumbfounded and fucking pissed that they actually pulled it off for that long..i had actually felt a slight sense of compassion about their situation I mean, can you imagine the feeling and need to lie that LARGE in order pull off one of the greatest stunts in music history in order to achieve the greatness they desired but couldn’t perfect with high powered industry liars and producers supporting the ionic bullshit role..not to mention the daily egg shells of sadness and despair they walked upon not knowing when the collapse of their secrets was going to shatter them..and it did, BIG TIME..
so I ask myself, why do we give out so much empty credit to people who are really just like you and me and what encompasses the it factor in the making of a star..why are there so many whose talents are not even evident when playing live and how is it even possible when its not even natural god given talent..its like a surgeon performing a surgery to find out they are simply just mediocre and couldn’t do it without a staff of true professions to actually perform guide alter and get them through the procedure without falling flat and short..would you continue to pay for that service, just to support the doctors welfare of mansion, fancy cars and extreme vacations..?
im so over all the industries to be honest with you that have a wizard of fucking oz persona pretending to do shit they cant really do while we pay for it..im sick of people not being who they are, and trying to pull the wool over every body’s eyes for another dollar..so cheers and love to the authentic who are honest, open, raw, vulnerable, have integrity admirable and are decent human beings..continue to spread your love and light abundantly, we the world desperately need others like you..peace love faith hope
