And I’d be remiss not to mention all of Katy Perry’s songs about teenage sex. And for the past seven years, Taylor Swift has mostly released singles about boys (You Belong With Me, Love Story, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, I Knew You Were Trouble).
I'll give you this: I am baffled as well by the continued success of Pink. All the other artists you list have some clear reason why they remain hugely popular - Perry's looks (not saying that's the only reason, but probably a major one), Gaga's ability to write a giant hook into basically anything she touches, Swift's grasp on teenage/early twenties everyday problems/concerns. Pink, on the other hand, just seems like a tepidly risque stage presence and an unremarkable vocalist who regurgitates the same song over and over again.

Want to know why Avril is over? She has to compete with this.

P!nk - Try - YouTube

Don't get me wrong - I am looking forward to her HK show - it'll be fun and full of singalongs and shit. But is she relevant? Not since 2004 and not unless you are a 14 year old girl.

Remember the good times.

These artists bore me. Now when the Nazis play Hong Kong I might sit up and pay attention.

Translation: there are two huge reasons why Perry remains majorly popular.

Would they be able to sell out arenas, though?

HBK, I gotta give you props for at least admitting that you're an Avril fan. If you enjoy her music, people shouldn't be giving you shit about it. When she was popular back in 2002, I dug a couple of her songs. I figured she might have some staying power, (she reminded me of Alanis-Lite) but as the years progressed, she faded from the pop scene. Meanwhile, other artists from that era were able to stick around like Britney, Pink and Beyoncé. Britney is a piece of ass and despite going mad in 2007, her and her army of producers have been able to march on. Pink is an amazing artist who has evolved as time has gone by. She is a good singer and it was her soulful voice that got her foot in the door. She has earned the right to do whatever she likes in concerts, songs or videos. Plus, she could probably kick all of our asses. Beyoncé is Beyoncé and married to the Jigga Man. No need to further explain. If it's any consolation, Ashanti probably should have achieved greater success from that era too, but didn't reach the heights that many other female artists from that era have.

The problem with this argument regarding Pink is the simple ignorance to the fact that she hasn't released a "bad-ass look at me" song in years.

I don't have the ass to pull it off.

That's the common denominator here.

You gotta have a great ass.

Have you ever listened to Pink?

She's a rock star.

She's got her rock moves.

And she's gonna show all you tonight.

She's alright.

And you're a tool.

Blow Me (One Last Kiss)- I think that qualifies.
