Why do people hate pop music?
I dont get it. Pop = Popular.
I mean if it sounds good and still has a message then I don't see why we should hate.
Dreary music doesn't have to equate to good music. I hate that rap fans always think that way.
People like me hate "POP" music because of this reason:
80-90% of human beings aren't able to form their own opinions.
They are "robots," "sheep," whatever you want to call them.
These are the people that resort to pop music.
"Hey, I have no opinion on music... I don't know what songs are poppin', so let me just go with whatever everybody else listens to! Then I can dance with them in the club! Then I can accumulate 'swag points' and people will think I'm cool! And then we can be all cool together
Why do you think little wayne sells 2-3 million copies?
Why do you think Kanye West sells 2-3 million copies?
Because tasteless robots/sheep buy their music.
Why would a person buy a J. Cole album and put in extra effort to listen to the music, only to realize that they're not gonna be as socially accepted (because less people listen to J. Cole) when they could just buy the gimmick of a rapper who told them "I'm the best rapper alive!" ? By buying this person's album, their "swag point count" will go through the roof because all the other sheep will give them *daps* and now they can all be socially accepted and do dances together.
Why buy a J. Cole album when you could buy a Kanye West album and be more socially accepted because his fan club is huge because he told people to drop out of college?
Another reason: People that listen to "POP" music don't know %*#$. They'll crown an artist as "a great rapper" when he's not even a rapper, he's a pop artist. And this is all because he told them to drop out of college.
