Recently, I told myself that I need to stop listening to so much radio and engage in more quality music and I fully intend to follow that advice… However, I would just like to say how much I loathe the recent rise in complaining amongst mainstream artists.
Ashlee Simpson: I was six years old when my parents went away/I was stuck inside a broken life I couldn’t wish away… Somebody listen please/It used to be so hard being me
Lindsay Lohan: I’m tired of rumors starting/I’m sick of being followed/I’m tired of people lying/Saying what they want about me/Why can’t they back up off me/Why can’t they let me live/I’m gonna do it my way/Take this for just what it is
Good Charlotte: It’s getting hectic everywhere that I go/They won’t leave me alone/There’s things they all wanna know/I’m paranoid of all the people I meet/Why are they talking to me/And why can’t anyone see/I just wanna live/Don’t really care about the things that they say/Don’t really care about what happens to me/I just wanna live
Okay, okay… I’ll stop listening to radio. But still! Even though I’m going to refrain from mainstream, will someone please make their complaining stop?! If you’re disgustingly wealthy and tabloids and nasty rumors are all you have to put up with, please don’t whine about how annoying those paparazzi pests are and how much you wish you could live life like an “average” adolescent. You’re not average. You’re rich. So deal with it.
