The Null Device

Loss of faith in social institutions: According to a BBC survey, 34% of young people in the UK believe that pop stars don't sing on their own records. Remember the uproar when Milli Vanilli were exposed as a fake? Well, nowadays it looks like pop stars are expected to be fake, and nobody expects the pretty boys and girls strutting their stuff in the video to be real musical artists any more than they expect pro wrestlers to be real competition athletes. Yes, it's all fake; yes, everyone's cool with that.
