The most popular music heard on the radio, tv, etc. would be considered "mainstream" and I have noticed a trend of "music fans" who seem to stray away from these artists because they think they are "over rated". I know everyone has their own opinions, but how may someone overlook the fact of good music because of popularity? Let's take Lady Gaga for example. She dropped out of college. There has to be some reason she is so famous today. And that reason is because she is talented. Adam Lambert, I see that people either love or hate him. I think he is a good singer. I cannot understand how someone can hear him sing and say that he is not good. What is your opinion on the subject? Do people think it is cool to listen to music that is not as popular as mainstream artists?
