Part of it is that back then the average person wouldn't be interacting with a camera on even a monthly basis, so everyone puts on their best behavior.

Nowadays everyone is on camera every day, so it's hard to justify the same level of effort.

I posted a theory on that.

Thread: The Internet has changed women. (Madonna in 1986 versus Selena Gomez in 2015)

Just compare these songs. Madonna in 1986 and Selena Gomez in 2015. Both songs were co-written by the singers.

What have we got? Madonna is singing about how she'll improve her lover's life in all kinds of positive ways. She's offering support and advice and she's explaining why her lover should trust her, and why they'll be happy together.

Selena Gomez is singing about how she'll enhance her lover's life by allowing him to look at her. Nothing else. It's just that she's so hot, her lover should be overjoyed and blissful because he can look at her.

I think women like Selena Gomez grow up thinking that their looks are everything because the Internet teaches them that.

From their first date on, all they need to do is put a picture of themselves on Instragram or whatever, and they'll get more offers from males than they can deal with.

Before the Internet took over, women had to compete for men's attention based on their personalities as much as their looks because almost all attraction only came from face-to-face interaction.

What's the motivation for someone like Selena Gomez to develop her personality growing up? There's none because she'll get what she wants regardless of her personality.
