Artists have this great ability to express and evoke emotion through visual or audio sensations. They spend so much time looking for meaning in art, more ways to evoke and express the deepest of emotions, they spend a lot of time contemplating beautiful self destruction.
If you don't know what that is, look around you at the biggest hits. Stay High by Tove Lo is a song about how this girl destroys herself morning the break up of her and her past lover. A theme like this, getting drunk and high to forget a certain pain is a beautiful reason to want to destroy yourself; this song shows a purely human reaction to hardships. But with the new flourishing love for music and art built around self destruction, it's translated more to 'LETS GET DRUNK BECAUSE WE'RE YOUNG WILD AND FREE' Not something I'd call art, but more of our generations interpretations of beauty.
