I've noticed that in the popular musical industry, performing females tend to fall into two categories: 1. The Crooner: Women who write and play their own music. This music tends to consist of slow ballads and weepy lyrics on guitar and piano (See 2 AM ((Breathe)) by Anna Nalick or pretty much anything Kelly Clarkson for classic examples). They're listenable, but nothing special, and don't have too much of an edge to them. 2. The Spooner: Women who only succeed cause they have a voice, and apparent sex appeal (Hence the name Spooner). They don't write anything or play anything, just dance, get surgery, and put out pre-programmed lyrics in a never-ending battle to see who can garner the most media attention and idolation while still being a total slut. (See: Christina Aguilera, Pink, Britney Spears...oh geez, the list goes on and on.) What I see a glaring deficency of, though, is the woman who can write bad-@$$ lyrics and music and play her own guitar and whatnot. We have too much Britney and not enough Joan Jett (Who is, by the way, insanely awesome.) Do you think this opinion is accurate, or no? If not, can you give some examples (And hopefully link us to their music)? If you agree, what do you think the reason behind this hard-rock-woman deficiency is? Does it have to do with unfair gender treatment, or just that you think men are, plain and simple, more born to rock? Also, are there any famous female musicians you hate or like? DISCUSS!
