Lorde is the best idol singer for children
Debate Rounds (3)
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room (Royals)" This one stanza includes drug use in the first part of it and partying in the second part of it. I would definitely not want to hear any kid repeat that stanza. Also, she has publicly dissed many celebrities, setting another bad example for kids.
She wanted to say that now everybody sing about the popstar"s money, their hotel rooms or their love life. But we don"t care about it, we don"t want to know it.
I think she is the best, because she doesn"t parading herself like a whore. She is something different. Pop-music artists always flash tits and crotch and the most kids are actually smart enough to be sick of it.
https://en.wikipedia.org...) Heroine means the female hero, not the drug.
You said that she critized a lot of models, artists, singers. Yes, it"s true. But she only critized people, who are parading themself like a slut, and they showed the worst example for children. (I"m not saying that Selena Gomez isn't hard working or talented. I used to love her and I was a big fan of her until she began to behave like a bitch.) Or she critized them, because they always sing about how rich they are, or about their luxury. And that"s why I say that she is a very good ideal. Children usually can"t find differences between the good and the bad things so if nobody critizes the artists like Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus, they may follow them. (In this case I mean the behaviour like a whore is the bad thing.)
But let"s go back to the album. If you saw her album cover, you can see that it is very minimalist. Why? Because she wanted to avoid the image that is similar to the other popstars (I mean the kitschy, luxurious image). She wanted to show that she is an ordinary girl. That"s why she always sings about thought-provoking and real things. In her songs, she critized other artists. She is brave, isn"t she? She must be very brave and self-confident if she can quirk to the biggest popstars. And at the end, I think her voice is also really cool. :)
It seems to me that Lorde is very respectable, because she represents something in all of us. A truth that wants to be heard.
This is my last round, so thank you for debate with me. :)
To sum up what I've been trying to say, Lorde is a good role model compared to most singers these days. She doesn't sing about drugs, sex, or show off her body inappropriately at all. However, she has talked bad about countless celebrities, some of which were "bad", but some of which were "good." This doesn't make her a bad role model, but it doesn't make her the best like you claimed. This is noticeable when comparing her to Kelley Clarkson, whom I consider a much better role model than Lorde. Unlike Lorde, she has never bad-mouthed anyone, even the people that said "Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers?"(Bumble.com) She has also donated to 22 charities v.s Lorde's one, (looktothestars.org) and her songs and personality are definitely things that you want a kid to be inspired by. Lorde's a great person and I love her songs, but she's not the absolute best idol singer.
Thanks creating the debate, Good luck!
