myspace revolutionized the way the internet was used, it was the very first social media platform to become widely used because it connected people in such a unique way. you can upload literally any file but a gif to myspace, meaning that people could put anything and everything about themselves right on their profile without any kind of external hosting. suddenly there was this huge focus on social media that there hadn’t been before, and anyone who could get enough attention on myspace by being pretty and having good music added on their profile could become famous, even for just a few weeks. so the drama began with everyone trying to claw their way to the top. scene is a fashion centered around being as glamorous and dramatic as possible; the fashion evolved from early 2000s celebrity looks, when it was fashionable to look like you just cried your eyes out in a mcdonalds at 5am and then put in a few more hairclips and threw on some glitter to cover it up. it’s a very tricky look to achieve because it LOOKS a bit trashy and low effort, but as soon as you start trying to do your scene hair you find out very quickly it takes a huge amount of effort and money, especially overall. the makeup is expensive, the hair extensions and products and styling tools are expensive, the clothes and six inch stilettos are VERY expensive. but the fashion barely even scrapes the surface. it’s about week long drinking binges covered in glitter at clint catalyst’s house because you’re a teenager who’s rich as hell and you don’t have anything better to do, as long as you take pictures the whole time and keep all your makeup on and upload the whole thing to myspace, people will love you and think you’re interesting and admire you. it’s about being uncomfortably inappropriate and making sexual innuendos and who fucked who last night, so artists like botdf and medic droid and jeffree star can upload all their songs they made with garageband about fucking and partying with their glamorous scene selfies and people loved it, absolutely ate it up. being scene was completely centered around the glamour of myspace fame. it is extremely performative, dramatic, highly sexual, and very, very immature. nothing like it could possibly happen ever again because there will never be a sudden social media revolution the way there was with myspace.
I've seen you mention an idol au a few times in your art, but I haven't seen an actual description of what it is. Mind elaborating?
