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.

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.
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.

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

Same with me, my mom had gotten me this fake microphone that just makes your voice louder, and I was going all the time with that. :lol:
Love this! I agree with you too. Also, anyone with vocal cords can make some amazing revolutionary songs even if they don't have the kind of voice that society generally percieves as 'good'.

It also helps to right intelligent lyrics.
