Kacey Musgraves, the country music songwriter-singer sensation is saying all the 'right' things for her music fans. The talented Texan was recently talking about her album "Pageant Material" and the song by the same name in an interview published by Yahoo Music in which she revealed an endearing aspect of her personality.
The song "Pageant Material" talks about how women in the music industry are expected to be "Behaviourally Perfect" which is similar to the expectations that are placed upon those women who compete in beauty pageants. She notes in the interview how she enjoyed poking fun at this image and herself for not being a "complete role model all of the time", a disclosure that actually has helped her connect with fans (Yahoo Music - July 14).
Kacey Musgraves is successful, beautiful and has a great personality and this reality and image can make it difficult for fans to relate to the performer or want to maintain a connection with the entertainer because she seems 'too perfect'. Thus the disclosure from Kacey Musgraves that despite the music industry's desire to create an image for entertainers such as herself as being "complete role models" the reality is that she makes mistakes and she is not the perfect role model.
The 'perfect' woman can for fans, female and male, be boring or seen as an unattainable standard to relate to and often results in some people commonly known as social media 'trolls' trying to find flaws in them. Kacey Musgraves has shrewdly slowed this search for her mistakes by providing advance notice that she is not the 'perfect' role model even though she is not trying to be 'bad'.
A country music singer who is hitting all the right notes with her fans by revealing that she is not perfect and actually has 'flaws' is the talented and attractive Kacey Musgraves.
