Music is supposed to bring people together and is supposed to relate to emotions and experiences of the people who are listening to it, as well as express the feelings of the artist in which is making the music.
Since a very young age, I always wanted to be involved in the music industry, whether it was me being in a band, a solo artist, a producer, or even a VJ for MTV (Not even sure if thats still around anymore haha)
As I stated earlier, Music is supposed to bring people together. It is supposed to be expressive and non judgmental, and Well it seems as these days musicians are not following through with this.
What especially kills me is the fact that the music industry or I should say the entertainment industry as a whole is all about anti bullying and equality. At first I thought this was an awesome idea (And it is) but looking at many of the examples trying to spread this equality message it really seems as if its a fucking joke to me.
Bands who preach equality talking trash on other bands music. These are people who are singing to fans about being bullied meanwhile they are bullying others themselves and in the long run showing fans that bullying is ok which is completely hypocritical to the message in which they are trying to spread.
I myself have my own taste of music and prefer not to listen to certain genres of music or artists in which are not my cup of tea, But it is completely wrong when people go out of their way to call someones work and passion “Shit”. That does not only hurt the artist in which this is their passion and dedication, it hurts the artists fans whether it be 1 fan or thousands of fans.
These rivalries and this hypocrisy really needs to stop. It seriously is ruining something in which is supposed to be spreading love.
