Does Taylor Swift make Britney Spears look like a great artist?
I like Taylor Swift as a person and I find her music very relaxing (much like elevator music) but recently I listened to some of her music then I listened to some Britney Spears songs and it struck me that Britney Spears' music is infinitely more creative both artistically and musically than Taylor Swift's music. Has anyone else noticed that? What does that say about American culture?

Kanye West's comments about Taylor Swift winning an MTV award are right on the money, imho:

“When you do things like what happened last year, it’s disrespectful to everyone who’s creative,” West in relation to Swift winning the award. “It’s a slap in the face to everyone who tries to do something real.”

In my mind's eye I see the march towards a future like in the movie "Idiocracy" everywhere, it's scary.

Neither one can really sing - I guess these days all that counts is that you are cute and blond - wish I'd figured that out when I was twenty.

Well, for one they perform two different styles of music. Secondly, Brittney Spears is manufactured pop star who plays no instruments and doesn't write her own songs-- it's all composed and produced by studio people and she just dances and lip syncs on stage. Taylor Swift is an actual musician who writes and plays her own music.

I don't really care for either of them, personally.

She does not know how to put on makeup, Look at pics of her next time, tons of eyeliner probaly false eyelashes and her skin is very white white, and her neck and arms a different shade, its like shes trying to look as white as a clown just her face, and red lipstick. really weird

Numero uno in makeup for women is keeping your face same skin tone, but she doesnt.

Swift looks like she weighs about 50 lbs, she is so skinny, and looks like she's about 16 years old. Not a slam, she made the big time young.

George Bush doesn't agree with you apparently:

Thread: Bush = racist reaction gives us insight into the mindset of the "ruling class"

Such was the sentiment aired by former United States President George W. Bush on his set-to-be-released memoir, explaining his actions during the Hurricane Katrina relief operations in 2005 against criticisms hurled towards him that he was a racist, particularly the one made by rapper Kanye West on national television. "George Bush doesn't care about black people," an emotional and frustrated West revealed during a fund-raising program for the Hurricane Katrina victims, much to the surprise of fellow hosts Mike Myers and Chris Rock. Bush tagged the said incident as "the worst moment of my presidency" in his memoir entitled "Decision Points," set to be released on Tuesday next week.
