Discussions: Chris Richards and David Malitz on the most influential pop stars of the decade.
Pundits have dubbed the dwindling Aughties “the decade without authority,” and from one look into our souls (i.e. iPods), they might be right. This decade saw the slow-motion collapse of the record industry and with it, the splintering of our collective musical taste.
But did all that chaos actually make our biggest pop celebrities more powerful? Did we need super-duper-stars to glom onto as our notions of “pop music” crumbled like so many stale breakfast scones? And if so, who were the most influential figures in pop? Brit-Brit? Yeezy? Hov? Bey? And why did we have to invent cute nicknames for all of them?
David Malitz and I will discuss pop's most influential music figures of the decade -- as well as the vision for our new music blog, Click Track -- today at 2 p.m. We hope you’ll join us.
Meantime, vote for the most influential pop artist of the decade, below.
