If you become a fan of Rush Limbaugh because he is hardcore conservative, but then he suddenly, arbitrarily becomes a Marxist, would you remain a fan of him?

If you aren't aware that researchers at universities in America do study pop culture, then you lot aren't too well versed on where your tax pennies get sent to.

Interesting research I saw recently concluded Jon Stewart is our generation's biggest public intellectual, or something to that extent. You can find this stuff in Journals if your school has a good breadth of subscription.

Culture studies classes are also ever prevalent at universities. It's mostly going to depend what programs your school offers, however.

idk.

im used to my favourite artists changing styles, doing multiple things for fans.
some fans like, some don't.

changing the style doesn't change the quality of the music itself.

for example, snsd did a innocent girl concept, then cute, etc, but the quality of each song, despite all being different, ballad, pop, dance, is exactly the same.

in fact in time despite changes, artists will always improve.



edit: i will learn about pop culture in japan when i start uni, as i will be taking a masters in japanese (maybe masters in linguistics too) and in my year in japan i will be surrounded in it.
i think it would be nice to have pop culture taught in schools, maybe not called "pop culture" but maybe a more specific media class separate from music/history about history of radio, tv, fashion and how its developed over time rather than listening to radio in class.

i hate the radio

I think they were good around their beginning.
But surely, one of the reasons that they actually started gaining fans was because of their style. If they change their style they could possibly become more popular or less popular. This sort of thinking should be discussed in classes all around the world, I think that it will surely change the way human kind act; for the better or worse, I don't know.

It is relatively straightforward, Reborn. Listen to any mainstream artist's music before, then after they gain popularity. There is a striking difference, and it is because the artist is pressured into what the fandom wants. And if you do not know the effects of something, why would you implement it in something like education?
