THIS IS ONE THING I TRULY DO NOT UNDERSTAND
I can certainly wrap my head around why pop music is so contagious and somewhat healthily brainwashable since most pop songs have a degree of really good writing in a twisted and authentically artistic sense, but one major player of pop music has me completely and utterly confused.
Aside from the fact that he's seriously one of the ugliest creatures that has ever walked the earth, he can't sing. Yeah, yeah, I know that's his "thing" or whatever, but I'm not here to give you another blogosphere diatribe on AutoTune (it's here to stay -- shut up or get the fuck out).
Seriously though, what good is someone in the pop lexicon if they 1. are fucking disgusting and 2. can't sing a note without the assistance of a Mac?
If you really think about it, Lil Wayne hacked pop music. His mass appeal is on the ranks of strange phenomena like Dancing With The Stars. Or pet rocks. For whatever reason, it just works. It just fucking works.
I don't know whether to infinitely hate or love this guy.
