Who doesn’t love a musician with his or her own sense of style? One that not only exhibits this idea of “cool” but in reality…is cool. I mean, we see this Gwen Stefani, we see it in Fergie, we see it Adam Levine (random shout out, I know)–but who actually carries this demeanor naturally?
Cool defined (which you will see below, from a screen shot via Google) states it perfectly, that of which is “the quality of being fashionably attractive or impressive”. A trait all musicians WOULD LIKE to carry, because most of them don’t—unfortunately (or maybe some are just too cool for me to realize this, I just don’t know). But they all seem to be a product by the industry that created them.
But today, cool runs along the same ideas as “bizarre”, “original”, “one-of-a-kind”.
It’s the year 2013, and in a world where everyone is shooting for the high dreams of Hollywood, staying bizarre seems just as important as being “cool”—or is bizarre actually “cool”. Wait a second, is bizarre the new cool?
Confusing, I know.
Where do you stand on the idea of being cool? Is it an attitude that is carried naturally? Is it presented through our style just as much as our way of being? Or is it “a state of being” created and molded by Hollywood?
