Today is the birthday of both Elvis Presley and David Bowie. Funny enough I’ve been picking up art is coming back, real art, not this void of entitled, gimmicky, fame hungry, clickbait shit. I’m talking the super stardom few here are carrying on their backs. The rising stars have been working and guided by the greats, but we’re still in a cleansing period for new things to grow and come forward. Enjoy the influence while you have it, many will be weeded out. Thank god.
Never forget 1983 David Bowie using his interview as a means to call out MTV for not playing black artists. See how he wasn’t being personally affected, but cares about equity and equality like a true legend. He didn’t need a movement and he wasn’t faking it. The days of the self serving, not here to change the world are numbered. Which icon do you resonate with more? Via: Music Monkeys
