I was just watching this show on VH1. I think it's horrible. not just that it's another stupid reality show, but these kids are put on this show ( some of them probably forced by their mothers) and expected to o all these performances, and then criticized by the hosts AND their parents. I think it's disgusting the amount of pressure is put on these kids, and my sister and her friend just sat there.

So I guess theres 2 things to discuss. The show itself, and what the hell's happening to our youth that lets them watch this crap like a bunch of robots.

VH1 sucks anyway, but if there likely to be child musicians.. there likely to have a nervous break down at 16... thats always hi-larious!

I hate pushy parents. There are few things in life that i truley hate, and Psuhy, Ungrateful and Selfish Parenting is one of them. Those parents should be ashamed of themselfs.

That show is hilarious. You can tell that half the kids don't give a flying f*ck. That one girl's mother is f*cking scary though. Rocky or something...THAT'S NOT EVEN A CHICK'S NAME!!! I keep expecting her to murder everyone, including her daughter.


Isn't Rocky short for Roxanne?

"reality shows" suck. these kids are just going to end up pregnant at 16 and addicted to pills or they'll kill themselves. either way I win.

its all for marketing and scouting really.. if a few of the kids on there pull in the ratings.. then record producers will jump on em like fleas and turn them into the next britney spears.

the ups.. and then the WAY down..

Are you insinuating that there is something wrong with Brittney Spears?

true, but at least he's funny. and probably right. some of these kids will get famous and probably end up just like some of the other child stars.

oddly enough, danny bonaduchi(spelling?) is one of the hosts

Did you seriously just blame an artist who just appeared in the last 6 months for a society that's been high on drugs and drinking since at least the Prohibition Era? Nobody even listens to him anymore, just another artist come and gone.

True. I wouldn't say the music is CORRUPTING them. It's really just plain annoying, and kind of sad to see that kids will listen to songs that all sound the same over and over again.

They probably think the same thing about whatever shitty music you listen to as well

This isn't an argument about music. In fact I was agreeing with you. And I'm sure they would. I was talking about music that's only lyrics are "bottles in the club" 50 times, and I never said it was shitty.

You said it all sounds the same. If you listened to metal, for instance however, a kid who loved 50 would say the same thing about your music.

Yeah I watched 5 minutes of it the other day. It almost made me sick. I just wanted to punch those parents...

Maybe when you hear it, but if you actually read the lyrics and understand them, there's more to it, whereas song a saying "I wanna **** you" is about....?
