Because actually taking the time to learn how to sing is overrated. Seriously guys. ;D

I've been seeing these commercials for T-Pain, Bratz, insert other brand here auto-tuning microphones aimed at children. If you ask me, it sounds like they're discouraging children from using their actual vocals because the only way to become a good singer nowadays is to auto-tune your voice.

I mean, isn't it MORE rewarding to learn how to sing with your own voice through hard work and determination? Or is it more rewarding to do what so many musicians do in these days; don't learn to sing and auto-tune it? I don't get why you would even want to take the easy way out on something like singing. It's almost like our dependancy on technology is making us lazier and lazier on everything we do, including singing. Which can be done just as well without technology. I guess all the "mainstream" music industry cares about now is you look attractive, your voice has nothing to do with it.

Our society disgusts me.

Hmm...I don't know,a lot of people I know hate my real voice(even when I was a little kid and still now) I really did try singing to my relatives but they either said they hated it or they pretended that they like it :/ I even tried choir practice,it didn't work,everyone hated my singing,maybe my talent isn't singing.

And thus, why I hate Vocaloid, Miley Cyrus and countless other artists.

My friend likes Miley's music but not her. He linked me to a video and said "Wow, listen to her! She sounds fantastic live!" or something along the lines of that.

I grudgingly watched the whole video to see what he was going on about.
Turns out she sounds like absolute SHIT. Sounds fantastic, my ass. I don't think she deserves all the credit and popularity she gets. She's a horny, perverted and immature young woman who wanted to get a popularity boost, but went about it the wrong way. Slut. And that's not only an insult. She actually made sex tapes to get attention as wellKiara annoying 

And don't even get me STARTED on vocaloid. Overused, overrated crap that makes my ears bleed (that actually happened the first time I heard them).Prince Hans My face was like Uhhhh......OOOOOOWWWWW MY EARS HOLY SHIT TURN IT OFF[EXO] Baekhyun Emoticon 

Well said my friend.

I don't think it should matter if Miley can sing live, it's that her lyrics are so, so bad.

Wait, she has sex tapes? I had no idea... I am so not with the times anymore.

Yeah, I mean I can appreciate the programming gone into creating Vocaloid, it would take a lot of work and they should be proud of what they created, but too many people have access to it.

Exactly. I don't hate on artists that sound bad live but have good lyrics, I'm just saying I don't understand how some people enjoy hearing that thing live or auto tuned :T Strange these days
Yeah, and she was bragging about it like it was a good thing. Facepalm1 

Definitely, it's such a great program :D But yes, the overwhelming crap that's made with it... Saddens me

Luckily there are plenty of other sounds I can enjoy in this big world of ours that we live in besides just music, like relaxing white noise.

I love the sounds of marshes and grasslands, it's really relaxing for me.

People say I suck at singing but I don't care!
Singing with your voice actually improves stamina

Yeah, and practice makes perfect. You gotta start somewhere before you hone your skills. c:

They only say I suck because my voice is high.
