Let’s talk famous boy bands. I think it’s crazy that boy bands never get old. Throughout every generation there have been a set of boys that the crowd would go wild over. This makes it almost impossible for regular guys to have a fair go in the program. That’s what you get for making boy bands popular. And then there’s the poor solo boys that have to try and make it on their own. I remember when JLS first became famous. It really is a whole culture in its own right. Some people are just blessed with being the center of attention. I actually hate being the center of attention but this isn’t about me. I always used to be in awe of those girls (some of them my friends) that would camp outside the concert arena for days beforehand to try and catch a glimpse of somebody famous. I have a kind of aversion to famous people. Like someone who I know is famous, I’ll go out of my way to not give them attention. It’s not that I come across famous people but I just think, if you know that you’re cool why do you need me to reinforce it for you? I’m not stroking that ego that’s been touched by millions before me. You’re fine.
Either way JLS had this color scheme thing going so that you could support each one of them. It was pretty cute actually. There were four of them and each one had their own color so if you were in the crowd you could wear something that was the color of the one that you had a crush on or hold a colored sign and they would know you had a crush on them. It was smart because they played into it with their merch so that you could show that you supported particular one. I knew a girl in school who couldn’t pick which JLS guy she liked so she bought every hoodie. That’s why the music industry is a money-making business. Because it just sucks you in to show your insane support of boy bands to the point that it’s ridiculous. And this is after McFly. People went crazy for them. They even starred in a movie. That’s what I don’t get about singers. How come one inevitably leads to another? Who’s to say that just because you can sing and might have a good stage presence, that now you can act. I just don’t get how the two are intrinsically combined. It happens to be that there are several different paths you could take to the acting industry but I just don’t understand how a music career is intrinsically one of those paths. It blows my mind every time.
Don’t even get me started on One Direction. They just think they’re so cool it makes me physically averted. I’ll admit that their music is okay but seeing as Harry Styles is constantly seen as a restaurant in London that I often go to, I find it difficult to show him the respect he seemingly deserves.
