Narrow minded stans

Gaga and Ariana fans from my experience aren’t the most open-minded, they’re as zealous as any other stan but I get the weird feeling that they can be really ignorant of what’s really popular or relevant elsewhere. OPM musicians like Regina Velasquez and Sarah Geronimo may not be globally successful but they’re very good examples of pop musicians who are commercially successful without being sexualised.

Similar things can be said of the more lyrically sophisticated likes of Natali, Mylene Farmer and Mina Mazzini even if the very last one doesn’t write her own lyrics. They do have loud, mean and defensive stans every now and then but the bigger one is that they’re probably as good or as interesting as Gaga and Ariana fans make their idols out to be. They’re not without flaws but are good examples outside of those two or three if you include Adele.
