    Why can’t there be any music legends / icons as there used to be such as Michael Jackson , George Michael , Freddie Mercury or Amy Winehouse or someone like that

    Why can’t there be unique styles instead of trendy and people being the same as others

    Yes of course but why can’t new legends be created with new music styles

    Because 1) pop music wasn't as old when many of the big hitters were starting out so it was arguably easier to be original, and 2) we are living in the present time, when we look back at the first twenty years of this century we probably will look at several of its artists as legends.

    Kanye West is more talented than every name you listed and will likely be one of them so there's one.
