Pop Stars | Pop Music
A pop star is the word that describes a musician who writes and performs pop music. Pop music emerged in the 1950s in the UK and the US and is often associated with the emergence of youth culture. It often follows a formula; it is typified by a simple rhythm, catchy lyrics, and usually a bright, upbeat tone. Pop music produces the most hit songs, meaning that it is the genre that makes the most money. It is often considered mainstream and as the most popular form of music. There are pop groups like One Direction and Little Mix, and also individual pop stars, like Taylor Swift and Rihanna.
