BEAUTIFUL GALS, BEAUTIFUL SINGERS?
If beautiful and hot girls are in the limelight, it is probably because they’re talented. I think it is shallow to attribute only looks to success. Looking great is a huge bonus, but it cannot work on its own. It has to be coupled with talent - perhaps in singing, marketing the product or being a great businessman with your music. At the end of the day, each of these is a talent.
I don’t think every singer needs to sex things up in a song to compete with the demanding times.
