Its an unfair comparison. Tove Lo won't probably have that same drive, energy and passion after 36 years of career. You're comparing a new artist that has that hunger for success, for making it and achieving her dreams with an artist who's 36 years after her debut.Westen wrote:Now look at my other fave Tove Lo, she released song called Disco Tits, payed for amazing video, she released visuals for every single song from her last album (Lady Wood), she payed for it without label's support (and they are barely even getting views outside her fans), she's touring as opening act and writing for others because she has to bring money (since she's working for Max Martin, probably as a ghostwriter too), but in return she gets to release music that she wants to without pressure of making it big. Blue Lips (Lady Wood Phase II) didn't even have physical release, but she released 2nd part of the album (Lady Wood), like she wanted to. Her music is not even being sent to radios, she's writing it all by herself and producing it with the help of her friends. It's raw and passionate.
Madonna also had that same drive Tove Lo is having when she was starting, she would do anything and in fact most artists start that way, they don't give 100% but 200% when they're in their first years and then after they achieve their dreams or become millionaires their drive and passion gradually start to fade, I can guarantee you that Tove Lo won't be that way forever.
If anything we couldn't be more thankful for Madonna, that high 200% giving drive and hunger that new artists have Madonna had it for the first 10 albums of her career in a span of 23 years. Right now she is just lazy because it wasn't simply going to last forever.
