I think that these programs are so time wasting, as there just there to make good television. Popstars, Soapstars, Popidol, when will this program stop?

I think it was clearly a waste of time. The promotion of pretty pretty people who need a damned good kicking continues.

Why they can't just seek someone who actually has singing, song writting, music playing talent I will never know. It just goes to show how commercialised the music industry truly is.

-don't tell anyone to shut up, ask us to shut them up if they need shutting up, its a discussion not argument board.-
I thought Popstars turned out really well.
They hit the charts to top tens. The Brunette one Mirella is insanely hot. And it showed people that anybody can make it with a lot of hard work and proper skills. It has many good sides if you look past the childhood idiocy and into actual currents of the media. -now that last line almost bordered on personal...-

Oh please! Popstars etc is the audio equivilent of SPAM, manufactured meat mass produced and sold to those of slow wit who don't know any better.

Give me something with integrity anytime. I don't care if such and such looks hot, barbie looked hot, Naomi Campbell looks hot, dosent mean I'm going to buy onto the hype and hyperbole and follow the crowd like a domesticated farm animal. These people DON'T have to put in hard work, they just have to attend a couple of auditions and look the part, then they get TV exsposure and a GUARANTEED record contract. They don't have to write thier own material, it's given to them by the record company, they never had to bust thier ars*s playing in pubs and clubs six nights a week, hauling their own gear, for sweet F A while working two jobs during the day. They never had to study music, they never had to learn to play an instrument.
Now next time put some thought into your post before you put it up junior, and watch your language too, coz it dosen't impress anyone. - if you consider the post contentious tell us about it.-

BAM

apologies for my last post, I got a little carried away and made some comments of a personal nature that I should'nt have. My only excuse is that the entire concept of "Popstars" makes me furious although this is no excuse for the post.

Once again, apologies

Yes I would like to se an ugly person sing. I have been to see partcularly non-attractive people sing because they can sing very well take Paul Weller for example. Now that dude has a distinctive original voice and he's good. The same with many of Jarvis Cocker's songs.

Who you calling a kid Jiaurtel? According to your info you're only 0 years old!  ;D

Is the same as Big Brother almost. They just went on there, did anything they wanted to, and they became INSTANT celebrities. I mean COME ON, some people have to work really, REALLY hard, study for years, and get turned down almost every tie justto get any near that.

music is a matter of taste - the kinda crap, my personal opinion on any kinda pop music is that it completely sucks, i find it offensive that its considered music, there is no talent involved (not even singing sometimes) and good evidence that the final solution should be carried out on most of humanity...

the smashing pumpkins - more like good music IMO, well actually the best ever, mmm.... incredible appreciation of harmony and some damn fine lyrics.
wish i could play guitar like tom morrelo/james iha, sing like the lead of k's choice - or failing that go to pinkpop a few years back.

I would try to explain what Popstars stands for but it would be lost on most of you so I am saving my knuckles for a good Quake game after this post.

But I will say this: Everybody has their own tastes and preferences. You cant force your own tastes on another person so dont bother.
Jehenna Pop music serves its purpose as a relaxant and easy listening when the radio is blaring at work. The problem is people centered their culture around it. Boy bands and sluts like Brtn.Sprs. are degrading our mentality and screwing our moral values completely. Back when I was a little kid strippers wore and still do wore less revealing clothes than that whore. Disagree with me? Check out the last Ed the Sock editorial. He went through half the pop culture like a hot knife through butter. It is geared towards making money and not creating art like many other branches of music. Metal and the whole dark branch of music are about self expression more than anything else and that is why they appeal to some of us more than to others. I dont know what I am leading to here but I guess the bottom line is
"Think before you speak!"
There is always more to thing than a simple glance reveals, but we usually fail to glimpse deeper because we dont care.
PS; Pumpikns do rock ;D, but I am not into the whole goth image they tend to promote :-\ I am more of a Pepper, Creed and Live fan.

i don kno.  popstars was kinda interesting on mute ;)

then again, u have to admit, for the pop culture, these boys and girls had to have been the best of the best.  they went thru the entire country and picked 5 ppl out of thousands.  and DONT ever say they dont work hard.  sure they dont write their own songs, but have u actually WATCHED some of them perform?!  i don kno aboot u guys, but i cant do that.  mebbe Jiaurtel, but i think he's the army or some such outfit.

so pop culture in ur opinion (and mine, i mite add) is a complete waste of time.  but for the screaming thousands of 12-year-olds, this is good music.  it doesnt make them stoopid, or childish.  jus ignorant of the other good bands (POD, Happy Hardcore Ravers and the like)
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Personally, I despise pop, and most of the 'musicians' associated with pop. Today's society is based a lot on looks. And you can see that with your average teenager. They'd rather watch a girl with massive breasts, in scanty clothing, than listen to something that they'd actually enjoy.  I also find that what they sing about, is quite offensive. If you just listen to a few pop songs... I mean, they're basically promoting promiscuity, and going behind other people's backs. Now where's the morality in that? I don't see any. Maybe you're average teenage female does, but I guess that's just them. Personally, I really despise people like that. So shallow and immoral, that I feel like vomitting. I'm in Jr. High, and I see this constantly.  Most people will write me off as young... but I have very good insight for merely 14 years of age.  I guess I just think shows like these are wastes of time, as is the majour music of this age.
What do you mean, 'insane'!?
...
Oh. You mean 'insane' as in running a guardian squad in to a bunch of terminators, 'insane.' Yeah. That was pretty stupid.

tch.

all shows - making popstars
               - making irish popstars
               - big brother
               - and the like
               - survivorish things

are NOT worth watching. They are CRAP... now Jiaurtel made alot of points that I agree with... but these are all just made so you can watch OTHEr people under pressure, like OK now we have to choose somebody to be kicked out (this for some reason interests them causing emotional wreck to other people... or worse, they have to discard one of their own number... ooo who has got rivalry with who?...) s'all crap. the first time you hear a person you haven't heard before, make sure you don't see them, as in music video. them music videos screw your judgement cause of afformentioned resons... now I've seen people listening to Eminem while watching a muted Britney spears music video... how odd... ;)

i jiaurtel am most definitely in with the goth image SP give, and not exactly agreeable with the seriously unethical chain stores that feed the masses their dose of pop-culture. i can assure you i do think before i speak - and its my opinion that pop-music generates nothing positive in society, it doesn't make me feel happy because i have a highly developed sense of audio appreciation and its simply painful to hear some of the stuff put out, the offensive quote from the tv show i happened to get pissed off at recently was that nirvana didn't make ppl happy and therefore did nothing for music - while i don't think many of their tracks are that great they did help bring to the concious of many the importance of individuality though unfortunately this has now been subverted by 13yr olds wearing nirvana hoodies having never listened to anything of theirs, your welcome to disagree of course.

also the msg given off in some of those songs is quite wrong i agree with whoever made the point, it wasn't me (track name i think) is offensive except that i don't think the artist seriously meant it, if it did then it would spoil my enjoyment of what is actually quite a good song, for the record i like eminem - very talented mainly in terms of lyrics.

now gotta go listen to some bad religion...
