I can understand all formats of music, including hip-hop and rap. I had my rock ’n’ roll back in the ’50s and ’60s — my parents, among others, called it demonic. Before that, there was the Big Band era, which I guess nobody seemed to argue about.
Even today’s country music is as close to rock as you can get. It’s aimed at the 18-to-34 demographic, well produced with fine-looking artists.
The genres of the decades just seem to pass into another art form of music, but what I can’t understand is the trashy performers such as Miley Cyrus, with her tongue hanging out, using an expletive in her Billboard Music Awards acceptance speech May 18, and host Ludacris using the word “ass” instead of “ask.”
It seems like it’s the thing to do for many of today’s performers.
I guess I’m an old fuddy-duddy, but come on. Our children and grandchildren are watching this trash.
I really admire Carrie Underwood, and even she got a little out of her style with the Miranda Lambert duet.
