Some people hate on Simon Cowell because of his so called heartless, non caring attitude towards the modern day music industry. Just because the music he is involved with is not like ‘the classics’ or musically complex and meaningful, it doesn't mean he's pumping it out for the pure factor of money, does it?
I understand its highly likely he is, and who’s to say you wouldn't be doing the same if you were in his position? However, the pure demand for boybands, dance tunes, and simple, ‘ear worm’ songs could be purely what he is responding to. Perhaps modern day technology fraying the minds of the consumer, is whats to blame for the demand of an extensive amount of the ‘garbage’ we hear today.
Who/what is to blame?
