Default Re: My rant on today's pop music

I think there is a parallel between today's music and other forms of entertainment. A huge percentage of today's TV shows are now reality shows (which aren't real at all). No scripts, no character development - just stick people in a room and film them doing stupid, outrageous and dangerous (i.e. Jackass) things. Movies rely on violence, sex, computer wizardry, and things blowing up for excitement. Comedians rely on cultural and ethnic stereotypes and foul language.

IMO - all forms of entertainment have regressed significantly over the last decade or so.
