    Really… really? I mean, she’s getting a documetnary made about her? She’s done nothing to really warrant a documentary except make disposable pop music and she’s getting a documentary made of her? God, it’s like people don’t even need to try anymore.

      Oki, we are going to have some words here. Katy Perry is a really hard-working artist. She struggled to get to the top, she struggles to keep herself on top — why shouldn’t she get a documentary?

      She has fans that probably want to see what goes on behind the scenes. She has earned her right, so why the hell should she not get a documentary?

      • Camiele says:

        @Julyssa Diaz, Firstly, it’s not as if she’s the only artist who has to struggle to get where they are. That doesn’t mean that a few years at the top (or wherever they end up) warrants an in-depth look into her life.

        Secondly, yeah, fans always want to see their favourite anything behind the scenes. They have concert DVDs and behind the scenes specials on television for that. Again, that doesn’t warrant an all-inclusive, in-depth investigation into their lives.

        As far as I’m concerend, and obviously you disagree, there’s not a single thing that she’s actually contributed to pop cultulre that’s a) not already there, b) hasn’t been done before (and better) or a combination of the two.

        Granted, she may have had to “work hard” to get where she is. But any artist worth his/her salt should have had to work hard to get where they are. You don’t see every single person with a semblence of a story getting documentaries chronicaling their lives from birth to where they are now, not after about 5 or 6 years in the business.

        Get back to me when she’s done something of any great importance.

          So you are pretty much saying that she isn’t worthy of it. That’s a pity you see it that way.

          What you list is all very true, there are many aspects of how the business works that can be discussed here. And I am sure this is a just a new way to get the fans to pay up, as how Beiber did with his “documentary”. But if a subject is interesting enough, if there is a demand, then it isn’t that surprising that a documentary is produced.

          Sure, there are many far better musicians that live in the shadows, whose stories are far more interesting and should be shared with the world. Now Katy Perry is getting one, why? Well because she’s popular enough but I am certain that it also has much to do with her. She might be a pop artist that is riding high on commercial pop, but I believe that she’s genuine in what she does. That is why I like her and that is why I don’t mind the documentary. I am sure it will be the first of many :P

    @Julyssa Diaz, Whether or not she’s “worthy” of it is yet to be seen. I suppose I could say she hasn’t done anything in my mind to warrant something as prominent as a documentary about her with the likes of Ron Howard at the helm. Again, there are tons of artists who are genuine in what they do and who do it better and who have managed to do something worthy of note in, not only pop music, but music in general. Katy’s not one of them. People who like her, like her and that’s fine and that’s good and people should like who they like. But this reeks of a way to just get money on a big name. Nothing more.

      @Camiele, well… Bieber has his docu. LOL I have nothing to say there… xD

      • Camiele says:

        @amy, HAHAHAHA!!!! AAAAAAANNNNNNNDDDDDD Amy just proves my point!

        • amy says:

          @Camiele, I don’t really hate on Bieber or Katy Perry, but I hate how people act as if they are the second coming. Same with Lady Gaga. Like in Spain when they were describing JYJ, and they said something along the lines of “have the hair of Justin Bieber” or something. Comments like that are what irk me.

          So I guess my negative views are aimed at the press who know jack about shit. LOL Specially the press on our side of the world who have no idea what’s going on over there. At least the press over there have respect for everything we throw at them…

  3. Camiele says:

    @amy, Well… I wouldn’t say that. It’s pretty much the same on both sides: an artist gets compared to something real popular (and rather Anglo-Saxon) and suddenly they’re the shit. Yeah, heard the Justin Bieber comment and I was like… ummm…? First of all, these are three GROWN ASS MEN. Secondly, what?! HaHA. I was pretty vitriolic when I saw that. I was like, why can’t they be three grown men making grown men music? Anyway…

    I don’t so much “hate” on Katy or Biebs. I just a) don’t see the appeal, and b) don’t get the hype. I certainly don’t see how either one of them managed get a documentary made of them. They’ve been on the scene for about five or six (solid) years. It took 40 years for a group of musicians who have more number one hits than the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Elvis combined to get a documentary made of them (The Funk Brothers wrote and created all the music for Motown in its heyday). It’s the desire to already sort of canonize these two kids when they haven’t at all proven anything more than they can sell lots of records — big deal, a lot of the same stuff in the music industry sells lots of records.

    Anyway, I suppose I should stop my rant. I still think it’s ridiculous and I’m pretty sure I may be in the minority about it, I guess. But, that’s how I feel.

      @Camiele, RANT OVER. xD

      How about the JYJ docu, then? Thoughts on that?

      • Camiele says:

        @amy, Still premature; however, how much what they did affected an entire wave of music (though, because of “circumstances” all of that’s not something that’s pointed out in the JYJ doc) and all of the stuff that surrounded them actually becoming a group, I can almost give that a pass… ALMOST, but not really. I think for it to be effective or even necessary it would have to be all five of them together because all five of them make up that history and that history is pretty thick, and they’ve all been around for almost a decade — actively making music, performing, etc. All five of them have created a pretty indelible mark on at least one part of music history — which, relatively speaking, is a big part of pop culture. At least in Korea and Japan, the impact that DBSK had on the music world is pretty substantial and worthy of a great deal of recognition, especially as regards those who follow in their footsteps.

        However, without all five of them, I don’t find the necessity for a documentary except, as with the whole argument with KP’s docu, to allow fans to see more into their lives. Maybe as another means to reach the Korean market without officially being able to perform music there (though, I think that’s pretty much sorting itself out), but, really, not a necessary documentary — at least, with just the three of them or just the two of TVXQ.

        That’s my piece on that. Sorry about my rant. I don’t even know how a trailer managed to get such hardcore discussion going… HaHa.
