I had been under the impression that women could get to the top in the music business if they were good, and that this has been the case for some time. One of the top selling stars of all time must surely be Dame Nellie Melba, and although not all the others have sold as many records as she did, there have been many who have done well from recording.
Hmm, really sounds like she knows what she's talking about don't it?
I think-i am
It would certainly help if all these people airing opinions about oppression, discrimination etc would actually give some kind of indication of what the problem actually is.......... but then again, if it comes to print, not even the media are interested in knowing if its legit or not.
I think Jay-Lo, Beyonce, Madonna, Carey, Jackson and many many more prove its absolutely possible to make it big in the music industry........... and there are countless examples of men who didn't make it either.
How can this lady "get to the top" if she does not release any material at all?
I never realised all the famous female pop stars have apparently been men in drag.
