It seems to me the music industry doesn't create legends or superstars like it did in the past. Oddly, Billie Eilish might be the only act born this century to actually be a superstar and legend. I really think people don't like music the way we grew up on it. Most people are more private and anti-social /would rather work from home. It dawned on me... last decades' girl groups were either Little Mix or Fifth Harmony. None of them would go down as legends or icons. Maybe Little Mix in the UK, but that's it. Hell, even Danity Kane and PCD weren't iconic. USA Today did an article on 20 years after The Spice Girls debuted and the state of girl groups are near extinction. They dubbed Danity Kane and the PCD as the plastic era and nothing about them spelled legends or reunions needed. Case in point: Both Danity Kane and PCD reunited. While in the UK and Ireland PCD is sold out but postponed. Word on the street is a US tour is unlikely because the girls are much bigger outside the US. They never got the chance to step outside the opening act in the US. Their biggest tour in the US was opening for Britney Spears but sadly it was also the end of the group as we know it. For Danity Kane, that group never got the chance and they can only do club dates to where only a few people come, but let's be real... we don't have any act that can be like Janet Jackson , Beyonce, Madonna or even Mariah Carey. Most of today's acts seems to not wanna dedicate that much to the music. It seems once it all gets too much they give up, and in most cases are more comfortable as a studio artist than being a superstar. Zayn, Ariana Grande, they hate promoting and touring. They only want to record music and just put it out there. Rest in Peace to a former type pop star. The Global domination brand version. It did end due to mental health taking a more importance now then it did 20-80 years ago. Most artists aren't viewed anymore as a money making revenue. All are seem as human beings now. Thoughts?
