    Default Janelle Monae/ Pet peeves

    This is really a pet peeve but it's driving me nuts. Despite not really having a particularly successful single or album Janelle Monae is everywhere. Nominated for awards, in Sonos commercial, cover girl spokeswomen. I don't get it. I assuming somebody it putting significant money behind her with not much return.


    Share you personal peeves or please someone explain how such an charisma-less person remains plastered in the public eye.

    My pet peeves for this was Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.. or however you spell that. They were famous just for being daughters of rich people. Not even famous rich people. Just rich. (Everyone knows the Hiltons as a hotel chain.. but if you were to stand in line at the coffee shop in front of the dude that owns them, he'd probably just be some business dude for most people.. If you stand in line with Paris Hilton though, you'd at least suspect it to be her.)

    I dislike the "Famous for being famous" gig. No talent needed, no work required, no need to get started or struggle.. just be famous because someone around you is famous and rich, and you use that to maaybe sneak a few controversial spot lights and BAM! Famous.

    If you see her perform, she has an enormous amount of charisma and the music is pretty good.

    This video for example. I think it has quite a few elements that should be exciting but none of them are really innovative, any not done with enough charisma to make the lack of uniqueness irrelevant.

    I'm not really trying to argue that she's bad. Just that her ubiquitousness doesn't quite match up with the fact that she's never really had a hit single or album.

    I don't think this matters so much anymore.

    You think it's just an image thing. Edgy but to too edgy. Famous but not famous enough that people really have an opinion on her?

    I don't think hit singles and albums are an adequate measure of a musical artist's popularity anymore. The Internet has changed all of this.
