    was asked this yesterday.. and thought to myself, well actually.. yeah, i do this quite often!- so i'm going to ask it here

    does anyone else relate to music artists- to the point where they feel that the artist is singing about them, or for them?. like they are born just to sing about your situation

    I've never thought a song was about me but it's easy to relate. I find songs by Pink, and the music videos that go with them, especially relatable as she sings a lot about body image, emotional wellbeing, etc. She seems quite dedicated to the cause and I respect her for that.

    What bugs me is when artists like Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera do "love yourself" type songs - like "Firework" and "Beautiful." I like the message but, unlike Pink, it's just a song to them - their other songs give an opposite message (Aguilera's "Dirty," and Perry's video to "Last Friday Night." ) Pink truly seems to mean.

    and i caught the edit!:)

    when i read it in my emails that part wasn't their:)

    it's funny you should mention pink- because i used to think... ah, well, she's just 1 of those trashy little pop stars- probably won't like her

    but more recently, i've been paying more attention to what she sings about.. and i now actually love her- you could say, i've gone from someone who wouldn't listen to any of her stuff, to someone with at least 3 of her albums

    same went for katy perry actually- never used to like her at all but now i love her too

    lol I always remember to add something when it's already posted. And then I get a bit OCD about the word ordering...

    I do enjoy Katy Perry songs, but sometimes it seems like she tries to hard to pretend she cares. There's no consistency.

    I cannot say that I have, but then again I do not listen to much music that is in a language I can understand or that has lyrics at all.
