Top Ten Reasons Why Girls Like Pop Music

The Top Ten

1 They Wanna Marry One Direction

This list is ridiculous. So you're saying ALL girls like pop? And that it's the only thing they like? I'm a dude and an extreme metal fan, and I've known girls who were into some meal bands not even I could withstand. Like, black metal and stuff. And I've known girls who were into rap. I don't like rap, but these people were girls, the liked rap, and they hated pop music. So NO - not every girl ha a crush on One Direction or Bieber. A lot of preteen girls like pop music because it's what they're exposed to. Once they get older, they learn what real music is and completely and finally disregard Harry Styles and His Circus of Failed Abortions. My point? Saying that all girls like pop music is like saying all Southerners like country. This list is just dumb. Goodbye. - ThatStrangeKid42

I actually think this list is stupid, you don't seem to realize every single person has different music taste. Like say a female from the 90's, you think all of them liked pop when in specific periods, male dominated genres were popular like Grunge, Electronic, Nu Metal, Glam Rock, you really think no girls liked some of those genres. So not all women like pop just like not all boys like rock, in fact some boys do like pop as well. - DJSchollen

I don't like this list, not all girls like pop, that is judgemental. I am a girl and I am more into rock than what I am into pop, plus, I hate One Direction, and plenty of other girls I know hate them too. I don't even think any of the members are hot and their music sucks, I hate the fact that they try to sing to girls and impress them, stupid. I listen to bands like Blink-182 and Green Day, bands that don't sing all about impressing girls and tries to make them fall in love with them. - AnimeDrawer

This list is stereotyoical - venomouskillingmachine

2 They Have Bad Taste In Music

Ok I have been looking at a lot of pop music lists and I can honestly say that this is one of the few that is very mean and in fact this whole list is very mean and should be removed. I'm 19 years old girl and I loved pop music from the day I was exposed to it and will continue to love it. The reason why I say this list is very mean is because different people have different taste in music and to create a list saying that they have bad taste and stuff just because they don't like what you like is very rude. Like my mom loves gentle and soft song and I tried to like them but it just didn't work out for me like I couldn't stand it at all and kept wanting the soft song to end. Like I gave rock a chance also but the same thing happened. Like in order for me to like songs and download it it has to pop songs because I really love them. But just because I don't like metal or rock I'm not going to post it in a list that offends some people who likes them. And that should go for other people ...more

This is sexist...

I'm a girl who loves blink-182 and Green Day and I'm very offended that you think their music is in bad taste

So it's bad for them to have an opinion..? - Cartoonfan202

3 They Love How They Look

Not true for some girls. I'm a girl and I listen mostly to female voices, I love powerful songs. I don't listen to one direction because all they sing about is loving a girl and blah blah blah blah... boring. (They don't even look good to me) I don't listen to male voices just because I find the singers attractive, I listen to them because I find the music attractive.

Um, I count more on music than looks, I don't find Billie Joe Armstrong attractive, but I love his music, the same is with a lot of the singers I like. I am fine with the singer being ugly just as long as they make good music. - AnimeDrawer

This only applies to guy musicians. So many Beliebers that are 13 years old because they like his look. They like boy bands even though they suck. I'm not saying this is all girls, but yeah

Unfortunately, there are many young girls who only like the artists for their looks. I like the artists for their music and voices. - Cartoonfan202

4 They Have All The Posters In Their Room

I don't have a single poster in my room, mainly what I have is old toys I don't play with anymore, art supplies all over the table and sketchbooks rather than posters of 5 Seconds Of Summer or Justin Bieber. - AnimeDrawer

I love pop music. But how is it that none of the items say "they like the songs? " I don't have posters, all male pop stars are jerks and who wears perfume? - AnonymousChick

Besides the obvious sexist deteriorates going on here. I think one likes the music before the buying of the posters

I don't have a poster in my room :P - ChatNoirFan18

5 They're Scared of Rock and Metal

I know a girl in my school who likes pop music and is scared of rock music. What? Some rock music is not even scary at all, I am not even scared of death metal, it is actually dope. What is so scary about rock music? Not all rock songs are harsh and involve screaming, plus, it's better than weak pop music that is too soft. - AnimeDrawer

Are you sure this isn't for Christians? Note I am Christian but still

My fears *note I am girl* : of blurring right and wrong so much I become a sociopath, of not being able to amount to something even if it's selfish to think I'm worth more than others. Nope. Metal music not on the list. I checked twice.

I like Rock. - Cartoonfan202

6 They Like To Dance To Their Songs

This is the only one that makes sense to me.

Even if you approve of this list you can't tell me that this makes any kind of sense

I like to dance to all my favorite songs, no matter which genre it is. - AnimeDrawer

Why is this bad? - Cartoonfan202

7 They Like The Male Popstars

This list is ridiculous. Not every girl likes pop music because of the guys. - Swellow

I like male rock singers more, thank you very much. - AnimeDrawer

I also like the male singers and producers because of the music, voice, and talent. Not the looks. - waraypiso

I no way like male pop artists that are only famous for their looks. - AnimeDrawer

8 They Go To Pop Concerts

Wait, what's wrong with this? Do you not go to rock and metal concerts?

I've actually never been to a concert yet. - Cartoonfan202

Girls wanna twerk like Nicki Minaj

9 They Get There Perfume

Ah yes. I was gonna get into metal but then I saw pop had perfume. I only choose the genre of music I like by whether or not they have perfume.

Nah. To be honest, I hate perfumes, especially, the vanilla one (vanilla is only good for foods and beverages, but they are awful for perfume). The only perfume I like is Jasmine Flower. - ChatNoirFan18

I do not like perfume, it smells too strong, the normal smell is the best in my opinion. I do not even care for artist's perfume I just think of it as "whatever". - AnimeDrawer

I don't wear their perfume. In the stores, I see that Britney Spears and Katy Perry and all them have their own perfumes. - Cartoonfan202

10 They're Simpleminded

Boys totally love pop music and are just embarrassed in front of girls. My dad who is 46 likes Justin Bieber

They'll listen to anything the mainstream feeds them

Its not true! There are sooo many Female metalheads/rockfans its not like only boys like rock/metal and girls like pop! Boys too listen to pop trash! - Stoplookingatmyname

This is sexist, stereotypical, and incorrect. I don't even know how to respond

The Contenders

11 Pop is More Marketed Than Any Other Genre

The unfortunate truth however this goes along with one of the higher rated reasons which is sex sells. So the companies invest in artists with sex appeal first talent second. Then they pay off the radio stations and magazines to advertise/play their music. It's not played often cause it's popular it's played often to make it popular. Then in order to keep up with demand for their artificially produce product(singer) they are forced to right songs in a time that is in humanly possible, so songs are written by multiple producers and songs are made simple and bland.

The one percent vote makes the most sense. Which is still like no sense at all but...

That is true. I do not understand how is it modern pop is everywhere I go. - waraypiso

12 They Enjoy the Songs

Fair enough

13 They Look At Popstar Magazines

Magazines? I don't even read magazines, just to look at pictures of One Direction, Ross Lynch, and Justin Bieber, no thank you, I don't like that garbage. I much rather read books like The Outsiders or any good graphic books than to read magazines about girly boys that are called "hot",. - AnimeDrawer

Nah. I never read popstar magazines. Most magazines I read are for kids. - ChatNoirFan18

I do it just to write complaint notes about it. Like this one!

Girly girls in the UK often read mags like "Girl Talk" or "Go-Girl" about celebs like Justin Bieber and Little Mix.Some of them have way to much cheesy gossip - pineliek

14 They Only Like Soft Music

This is especially true for me. My sister will listen to Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj day in and day out and it drives me insane!

It just goes to show you that girls (and anybody) will listen to whatever piece of crap you bring out to them.

Soft music is boring, I like loud music with screaming and fun fast paced beats, that is way more fun. But sometimes I listen to soft music depending on the song. - AnimeDrawer

Soft music? Really? Boring, I like my music loud and fast paced, as well as energetic, not a song to sleep to. - AnimeDrawer

Nope. I like loud musics. - ChatNoirFan18

15 Guys Sings To Girls About Love

And not the reverse? I am a young 13 year old girl and I don't like pop. not all girls do.

I'm the same age and a girl too. Every pop song is always about love. *sigh*

This is why I don't like stuff like 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Direction. - AnimeDrawer

Young 13-year-old girls like pop.

16 They are Weak

This is just a stereotype. - waraypiso

Sexist. - ChatNoirFan18

17 They Wanna Meet The Male Popstars

Not me, I want to meet good and talented musicians, so they can talk to me about how they play their instruments or who had they been influenced by, not some stupid cute boys that are only popular for their looks. - AnimeDrawer

They wanna have sex with Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, and Adam Levine

Please stop bashing girls! Only brainwashed girls like them! There are so many girls who like other genres. - Stoplookingatmyname

I'm a guy and I wanna meet my favorite female celebrity... - Zplatter360

HEY! NO FAIR! DYNASTI IS TOO AUTISTIC TO BE TRUE BITCH!

18 They Are Intrigued by The Catchy Beats

Yeah, some pop music has catchy beats but the ones that don't have catchy beats, there are still people who drool over it - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I'm a girl and I love the tune of pop music. It makes me want to dance!

Yeah like Nicky minaj's sirens and cusswords are to die for.

Admittedly, I do like some songs for their catchyness, but some catchy songs are bad though. - AnimeDrawer

20 Good Production Value

Just pointing it out, not in favor of pop music or anything, but usually Autotune is used to correct pitches subtly. Autotune doesn't necessarily mean that the s/he is a bad singer. It can also be used to give the human voice something that isn't that human (haha, if that makes sense), which can make things more emotional, or some other feeling. One thing though...it can't really fix a singer is really bad to begin with.

Sorry for the wordiness.

Even the crappiest songs have some great production; can't argue with that.

The record label makes pop "singers" use auto-tune
