Marina & the Diamonds (it's just her) is definitely a pop musician but she's very precise about her music and how she works with producers. I usually prefer lyrics to music because I don't have a tuned ear, and Marina's lyrics range from critiques of the music industry, and social commentaries to more personal songs. For me, she's really given pop a lot more credibility in that it can mean something.

I admire people like this, that try and bring credibility and originality to the industry. It makes it even sadder when the majority of the pop industry disregard people like this and the household names are usually those four-chord artists.

Sometimes I wish I could jam with Beethoven.

Very true.
I think that she does bring originality to the industry but it's punctuated by that she doesn't try to be original. She does what she wants and doesn't compare herself to other people. That's an aspect of art and not commercial shit.

I know people say, "Lady Gaga's an arteeeest," and suchlike but, if people equate art to her, there is no chance of a musical renaissance, so to speak.

If Lady Gaga is an artist in the music industry, then all hope is lost forever and I will hasten my attempts to permanently take refuge in the 19th Century.

I have just heard something that reminded me of another crime that pop music often commits: chronic overuse of the Melisma. It’s like the Caps Lock of pop.

OMG I KNOW. And yeah, I know I just used the melisma of message boards, but it's the only way could express my hatred of that fucking thing. Urgh. It's like, no, sing the damn notes. Grr grr grr.

for the first time..ever really, I've started to like pop music.
mostly gaga.
well, exclusively gaga.

Once you like gaga, it's only a small step to Ke$ha.

And then the damage is truly irreversible.

Oh, come on now. Ke$ha is pretty awe$ome. Plu$, $uperfluou$ dollar $igns = epic win. I always felt the dollar $ign was underappreciated, but now I realize I can u$e it in place of an S$. Ke$ha logic = WIN.

I'm not a huge fan of any pop music, but I just can't help but shed away all of my indie cred and get up and dance when I hear Single Ladies by Beyonce or Toxic by Britney Spears. I could also jam to anything Shakira ever did before She Wolf. I don't think simplicity is bad at all, complexity can be fantastic, but simplicity can be the best thing for your song really.
But when something becomes unoriginal and boring, that's when I say fuck this.

Who made you the art police? xD This is a wholly pointless conversation - art's completely subjective, that's what's so gorgeous about it. If one person thinks someone's work is art, then it's as much art as the next person's work.
