i don't know how all you guys think about it but i'm really sick and tired of all these: "she copied her" or "she was inspired by her". everything in pop music, is already done. there isn't a taboo left that isn't already broken. why can't you guys just stop? is it really so important to say who made what? because when you say that one artist made this, you can always say that a person did it before, and a person before this person. what is the point? i'm angry about getting on twitter or atrl and seeing all these people bitching around who's more original and creative. as long as their work, which is most important: music - is good, everything's ok. enjoy & discuss but i just wanna know what's the point of all these comparisons? what's your opinion?

This is what people need to get into their heads.

It only becomes a problem when popular artists are similar to one another. When Lady Gaga releases
videos like "Alejandro" or songs like "Born This Way," she's asking to be compared to Madonna.
When Nicki Minaj wears ridiculous costumes or has a theology-themed performance at
the Grammy's, she's asking to be compared to Lady Gaga and Madonna. The
responsibility lies with the artist to be original, like Spears, for example.

and effortlessly make an entire fan base want to slit their wrists. Such a legend. -- Icing
Copying is more shameless in nature. An example is changing your genre, acquiring the producer of a specific successful singer in that genre, and hiring her old creative director in the hopes that your shock performances will give you attention or commercial success.
