Thread Name: BS: Shania Twain
Subject: RE: BS: Shania Twain
Twain is a pop artist and writes pop songs. Pop songs are pop songs,and therefore are usually on the vapid side. So she goes to Nashville, with her voice and her looks to try to make a living in the music industry, she pulls it off, hitching up with Mutt and eventually getting to perform her own tunes. And, yeah, the "industry" does it all up in diva fashion to make money. Well that's what any industry DOES, make money. Hey, listen, I don't see me running out to buy her cd's, but I'll tell ya, there's alot worse out there than some nice looking woman singing some catchy pop love songs. Sure there's tons of folks out there who write better songs than Shania, but the mass market is too stupid and lazy to ever give em that kind of success, with some notable exceptions along the way. I mean alot, if not most cd buyers aren't really looking for thoughtful, witty, etc, when they're looking for music. So she's making a nice living off of it. Who can blame her? sb
