30 Day Challenge: Day 5/6?

Day 5: Things you want to say to an ex *blushes* I'm passing this one
Day 6: Your views on mainstream music
I'm slightly confused on what mainstream music is. When I was in school "pop" music was Spice Girls, 5ive, Nsync, Backstreet Boys. Pop stands for popular music but now pop is almost anything! Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, Adele, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, NDubz just to name a few. But these artists make or have made grime music, hip hop, r & b and pop. I think mainstream music can be from any genre these days and that is great because it means a variety of music is now acceptable and available to all. Hmm, I do have a positive view on mainstream music but I do think a lot of it is marketing and being moulded by record companies to appeal to mass audiences. I do listen to mainstream music, I am a huge Beyonce fan not so much of Lady Gaga but they are both talented nonetheless. Videos and lyrics are certainly pushing boundaries these days, more so then I was younger. The more controversial, the more sales? Hmm.
