Video: how to create a pop star

A graphic illustration of how little musical talent is required to become the next Brittney Spears.

Want to know how to take any good looking teen, with no musical talent, and produce a new Brittney Spears? Using nothing but a poor vocal sample, a 45yr old man who actually has a sense of music, and a pitch correcting computer? This shows how incredibly talent-free pop music is. By which I mean no disrespect to the singer - she knows she’s not a good singer. That was the point.

The sad thing is this generic ‘produce by formula’ crap out-sells real music more often than not.
