It's became a nuisance to my ears and eyes. Everywhere I turn, there is some stupid J-Pop group starring back at me. It's either effeminate men trying to get me to drink light beer or wear eye liner. To disgustingly cute females who have the IQ of Arnie from 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?'.
You think I'm kidding don't you?
I've came to the conclusion that these 'artists' exist for the same corporate reasons pop stars exist back in the US. To make money beyond music. The companies must own the rights to these people because their faces are on every stupid item you could buy.
I guess maybe my biggest complaint is the lack of poppiness and catchiness some of these bands have. Most notably the girl groups. They all have the same limited vocal range, in the same key, no harmonies, rarely any solos, duets, etc... Multiple parts hardly exist either. It's hard for me to listen to.
The entire group reminds me of 'the guitar army' from Idiocracy.
Such a stupid concept.
