Q: What's your take on TV shows such as American Idol and The Voice?
A: I think they are stupid but harmless. I mean, the music on those shows is trite, over produced, and just generally lame. But, it's not like those shows stop people from making good music. If people enjoy watching it, what do I care?
Someone once argued that the shows are harmful because they create a false view of how to be successful in the music industry. But, my opinion is that if you are foolish enough to think that you can actually become a superstar by appearing on american idol, the music world isn't missing much by having your "career" stunted by such goofy show.
I like Nicki Minaj, though. She's cool.
