Looking at how some of these entries are written (hello, Music section), does having singing ability instantly make this trope averted? Just because singing ability may not be the main reason an idol singer is famous, doesn't mean they cannot sing at all. Being an idol singer is more in the imagery being played up than the actual skill/talent level of the idol, isn't it?

I found this response to an entry I wrote.

  • That's not quite fair to america. Pretty much all of our pop stars are created a similar way to what is done in japan. Albeit not as "YOU SHALL NOT PREFORM PAST 25!" but Americans do the same thing. And it's still going on.

I never said anything to imply the opposite. What is this adding? I just find it redundant.

Yeah, I pulled it. It's natter, it's a third level indent, it's poorly written, and it's responding (not repairing).

Your entry could potentially use a rewrite to make it clear that other examples exist in America, though. You didn't imply otherwise, but it's pretty easy to interpret the fact that you don't mention it to mean it doesn't exist. So a couple words for clarity might be worth it.

Any suggestions for how to rewrite it?

I just took a shot at it.

Very nice. Thanks.

I find the whole tone of the intro needlessly disdainful... I may rewrite it.

It really is. Especially since there are plenty of idealistic portrayals of idol life.

Are all Idol Singers ruthlessly discarded necessarily?
