The DJ scene isn't that different from the music scene itself. Britney Spears sells more records than singers that are WAY more talented than she is (which is pretty much anyone with vocal chords - sorry Britney fans).
So, you're probably thinking "THIS SHIT IS OBVIOUS SIGMA YOU TOOL" - and it is - so why are so many of you so celebrity obsessed?
Somewhat related - the problem with the "this is all you need to do" attitude is, you are advocating mediocrity. You're saying "it's OK to be shit, because sometimes people that are shit get paid lots" and while that is true, you're supposed to be the people that are doing this because you love music and love the artform that is DJing. So why give so much shine to people that suck? And this not only goes for DJing, but for music itself.
I've brought it up in the hip-hop section and I'll bring it up again here - but considering that hip-hop is so popular, why are there so many fucking awful hip-hop DJs? If hip-hop DJs were stacked in a pyramid with the shit ones at the bottom and the best ones at the top, the bottom of the pyramid is getting wider all the time. Why? WHY?
You might say "you're just a salty middle-aged git who's mad that things aren't like they used to be" and that is partly true, but what annoys me is that DJs now have 2 major advantages over me when I started - they have all kinds of resources when it comes to learning (including this very forum) and they have access to gear that opens all kinds of possibilities that weren't open to me when I was using just 2 turntables, a mixer and vinyl - but what are the majority of these DJs choosing to do with this info/gear? They're not showing me up as some dinosaur - which is what I want from them - they're using it to be mediocre and other DJs are saying "that's all you need to be".
