I don’t give a flying fuck what people wear.
And I don’t think that when a woman dresses up like a prostitute that means she is a prostitute. It’s just an outfit.
And I understand, from a marketing perspective, why a musician might dress like this. You dress up wild, somebody pops a pic and it gets propagated around the internet tubes.
And I do not think the music business should aspire to put out only great works of art. There most definitely should be a healthy amount of party music.
Finally, the skin color of the folks in the pictures below is completely unconnected from the points made here. It’s about these outfits.
If the music business ever wanted to sell records to anybody except horny tweens and teens they might want to look at these outfits and save them for the aftershow party.
If the music business every thought of itself as an industry that puts out substantial music aimed at the head or the heart and not just the crotch, maybe these outfits could present a problem.
If the music business ever wanted to conduct a non-spectacle based business strategy it might be more effective in connecting with normal people who might just want to listen to some good music.
I believe that music is an art form and that it can move people and give comfort to people during difficult times. It can inspire people and be a restorative force.
But you sure as fuck can’t tell that from these pictures below:
