Akon has to be the greatest artist ever....

Seriously, this guy has about 4 songs on the radio. I just love how his rap/singing is always echo'd. It's like they producer really wants his voice to stick in your mind for hours and hours and hours after you hear the song.....

Or maybe it's just that radio plays every one of his songs a couple of times each hour.

I made the mistake of forgetting my iPod when driving around, so I decided to give the radio a try *shudder*. This "artist" must be the hot thing right now. I can't wait till he's over with.

While you’re at it, can someone please explain the Pussy Cat Dolls to me as well, please? Anyone?

They're strippers, I get that, and only one can actually sing (and I use that term lightly) and it's all about "female empowerment" or whatever but I mean really...

Is this what popular music has come to?

I'm so glad I'm not a teenager anymore, that would suck big time...

He really adds something to Gwen Stefani's "Sweet Escape"

"Ooooh ooh, ooooh ooh"

I like them too.

I don't need all of my music to be amazing and profound. Sometimes, I just wanna drive around and crank something fun.

I love my pop music, like BC said it doesn't need to be profound or amazing for me to enjoy it but I have to say the PCD are awful.
I've been to a lot of cheesy concerts but theirs was the worst I have been to. They really were tragic.

i can understand not needing to listen to everything profound...but theres a line crossed when the only words a guy sings is "i wanna you" over and over again

Would you rather go to my place and just kick it like Tae Bo?

Sugarbabes and Girls Aloud are my fun music

Though their cover of Walk This Way for Comic Relief is horrendous

The arrangement is so messy and icky.

Akon makes me skin crawl.

So far none of my friends like Akon or The Pussycat Dolls. I have great friends.
