Forget Katy Perry or Gaga, Kesha is 2017's real pop queen

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/artists/pop-industry-awash-authenticity-kesha-has-triumphed-presenting/   Changing direction is a risk for pop stars – and you can double that risk if you happen to be a pop star who is also a woman in a world where men still dominate the charts. So it’s no small feat for Katy Perry to have discovered politics and minimalist R'n'B; for Lady Gaga to have gone soft-rock or Britney Spears to release an album that was actually good.   

Decent reviews didn’t help Gaga’s Joanneor Spears’s Glory make much impact on the UK Top 40 either. Going by chart figures, Bradley Walsh is a bigger pop star than Britney right now.

Spears at least managed to sidestep the one major trend currently blighting pop music: the search for “authenticity”, which too often translates to lecturing us on being “woke” (or socially conscious) or using more acoustic guitar than is really ever necessary.

Good read. Tbh

Honestly I will say this though. Artists know what they want when they first start. I do think the industry is shady beyond belief but a lot of artists know what they have to do to make money and fame. 

It is annoying when artists trash their pasts because let's be real they would be unknown if not for that. Which I think they know and it makes them bitter. Not directly at Kesha but it does relate to her as well. 

Im happy they admit Glory is good. With that there is a separation in the world right now. It's clear as day.

Not Glory starting to become the little sister of Work Bitch. No one paid attention when it was released, but after a year everyone' starting to say that is iconic. :brit:

p.s. Glory is good, indeed, and that was an interesting read!
