So I guess the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder and, Marvin's impact on the industry is irrelevant because the musicians who have been influenced by them are crap? plsee.....
That logic is awful. I let it slide that you didn't give any example of them stating they were influenced by Michael Jackson (I kind of have a hard time believing he did much for Wu Tang) but with the exception Wu Tang, who are really just a good rap group but nothing special EVERYTHING you listed is garbage. I was going to go on and list by list tear these people apart but I got bored. It's all generic pop trash that is nothing special in its genre and alot of cases they're just sacred cows of their crappy spoon fed to the masses mediocre shi
t so no one is willing to bash them. Madonna is, was and always will be trash, she's just given her trash a new face everytime some corporate big wig thinks it'll sell records. Theres nothing clever or talented about having Warner Bros and spawns of Samhita give you a new face so everyone can make a buck, that's all her music is and thats all the music you listed is. Music made to make a dollar, a product not an art form.
