When you think of pop singers, the first thought that comes to your mind is flashy artistes with wind-swept tresses or slickly moussed Mohawks, multicolored wigs and sleeve tattoos, gyrating in barely there dress carrying some eye-popping props in some outlandish music video. But we don’t really blame you for deeming so! Ever since the advent of pop culture, pop stars have been deemed as desirable pinups masquerading as singers. But thanks to the Gagas, the Biebers, the Minajs and the Perrys who showed the world that the flashy business of pop was not just faff – it meant some seriously good music too! The number of Billboard hits these pop stars have scored is a testimony to that. There is no denying that the musical empire of America has always been over-saturated with pop singers. We bring you biographies, trivia and interesting facts on America’s most famous pop singers who gave pop its own unique place in the world of global music.
