MORE The Latest / POSTED BY: KINGSOFAR

Social media has created an addiction of wanting to fit in. It’s terrifying to be the one who is the outcast.

The establishment culture shares the same latest trending news. They post the same thoughts. Type the same things. Share the same feelings. Last week it’s Britney. Now it’s Simone Biles. She’s flooded in LIKES, RETWEETS and FOLLOWERS from singers, actors, rappers, models, activists, athletes, and politicians. Nobody will leave this poor girl alone. It’s not like they care about her. No..No. The media and the establishment simpletons just want to ride on her coattails.

Birds of a feather flock together. Who wants to be a social outcast?

I get it. Fitting in is comfortable. It’s the path of least resistance. It’s more gratifying to open your unfollow app and view 2 new follows than 10 lost followers. Even if you’re lying to yourself, it’s still easier than social conflict.

But if you’re a NEW artist wanting to fit in, consider yourself invisible. We have fewer household names, and even less cult figures. Open your social media app and you’ve entered into a world of “sameness”. It’s easy to fit in, to blend in, and hide. Don’t tell me you’re going to embrace your individuality by posting a photo along with the latest trending hashtag.

The moment you open the app you’re looking for acceptance and validation. It’s very hard to create original art under those circumstances.

Michaelengo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. But he wasn’t looking for approval. But the artist who overly obsesses with need of acceptance will never produce anything of the ages.

If you’re trying to write songs that appeal to the masses you’ll never be your true self because you’ll be always trying to shape yourself to the preferences of the people around you.

People never make history by fitting in. Ask yourself. How am I going to change entertainment? Or political discourse?

Social media created a monoculture monster. The platforms despise originality. If you’re an artist, take note. It’s time to face the monster and fight against the establishment culture.
