Did I comment on this? Well if not...I agree with this!
I have a friend who now hates pop music and thinks underground rap and rap in general is much more 'sophisticated' or whatever -__- I've listened to a few of Lady GaGa's songs and she's not a terrible singer, though I can't say I'm a fan of hers But anwyho: I don't think any music genre is better or worse then the other. I prefer genres like KPop and American pop over heavy metal or rap music. I think it's stupid for some people to hate music for those 'reasons' you listed ><
I will continue to like whatever music artist I like. I don't care what others think of my favorite groups, I don't bash on their favorite groups so why should they bash mine? I remember one of my friends made a comment saying 'The newer KPop groups are shit' and it makes me wonder if she's even tried listening to the newer groups -__-
