I mean it already looks great but I honestly think it's kinda laughable how they market stuff: "The first time that a K-pop group takes a selfie in front of X famous building" or something ridiculous like that, I mean chill.... It's crazy how people and companies like a freaking magazine place themselves as icons. It's just a magazine.

but it is THE MAGAZINE. Perhaps there are things that you do not understand well, but within the industry there is something that is worth much more than sales, and it is prestige, which Blackpink has.

Kinda sad that in 55 years of publication, they are the third girl group to be featured on the cover.

 

I know the magazine perfectly well, I'm a pop fan after all (RS being a rock magazine is something of the part, let's not get into that), but maybe we need to start questioning how they market themselves... Which is my original point. 55 years and only 3 girl groups on the cover? Why should we regard it as "THE magazine" if they disregard hard working women (in girl groups there are lots of them). And about BLACKPINK... Prestige? That's also marketing, because I honestly don't remember songs by them besides "Like That" (I think that's the name), and I actually like them; so again, so much publicity for an elitist company and a group with low cultural impact.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the world doesn't revolve around your tastes. :unbothered_apple_chew_bite_hair_eat_chomp_red:
You may only like one song, but Blackpink has an iconic repertoire beyond being simple exponents of a genre.
Just think that as a group they have only released 21 songs in 5 years and are the most subscribed music project on YouTube. :bop_beyonce_dancing_yes_Yas_cheer_party_glasses: If that's not cultural impact in the streaming age, tell me what is. :barbie_hair_flip_hairflip_weave_proud_cocky:
There are many artists who have never been relevant to me (Example Lady Gaga) however I cannot deny that they are iconic and massive musical acts in terms of success and innovation :bedtime_britney_book_Reading:
