Are we really that invested in Taylor's success?

It's kind of boring actually. Basic, blonde pop star who appeals to everyone sells another 800k-1M copies in a week. Yay? Isn't that what we expected? 

 

I'm biased, but Gaga's music story has been a lot more interesting to follow and talk about. The so-called floppage of ARTPOP, her rise then fall then rise again. It's a "success" I can invest in because of the ups and downs. Taylor's story on the other hand...

 

Thoughts?

Lady Gaga is also a blonde pop star so I don’t get your point.

Well we are invested in her music because it speaks to us. Some people also follow charts but that's always an addition. If I wanted to see someone go through ups and downs, I'd watch a sad movie instead.

lolol this made me laugh.

Gaga's story isn't that interesting imo - chromatica wasn't actually new for her.

That said - i think all of us here, me included, could learn about not being overly invested in any of our fave's success. They be rich with or without us. enjoy the music you enjoy

Lady Gaga is as much as a basic blonde pop star than Taylor Swift but I get your point and I do agree with you.

Shes appeals. Like Adele. Gaga doesn't, for obvious reasons. Just accept it. You cant stan an artist that's become polarising and then be surprised when they flop every now and then. It is what it is. No need to focus on those that will always appeal to a wide demographic and make yourself needlessly angry on someone else's behalf.

nobody really cares about gaga except for you and a few other people in here so you might be alone here.

 

ask yourself maybe why you’re in the minority!

I can see why rationalizing things like that would make you feel better, but I personally find Taylor’s success ten times more interesting than Gaga’s

Maybe I'm trying to get at something deeper here. Like, why are people more likely to support someone who always wins, and more likely to root for the failure of someone who has fought hard to win?

And I can personally relate more to consistent winning and success. It all depends on the person :cm:

 

Don't get the purpose of the thread tho 

 

Anyways, I personally find Gaga more safe and boring than Taylor but that's me!!

Interesting. 

 

Perhaps this is because you've "always won" in your life.

I think I'm getting to the root of why we do this in the first place. :cm:
