The Week In Pop: So, What Else Does “All About That Bass” Singer Meghan Trainor Have To Offer?

"All About That Bass" is a great song. It is not a cool song, but hopefully by now we all realize cool is not the same thing as great. Meghan Trainor's breakout single, which celebrates the sex appeal of larger women, is also not quite as smart or important as Trainor thinks it i… More »

The Week In Pop: La Roux’s Trouble In Paradise Finds Breezy Ways To Brood

Trouble In Paradise is the sound of Elly Jackson letting her hair down.

She has styled herself less like… More »

I know it looks like we're trolling when we acknowledge the existence of the pop star/public pariah Justin Bieber, but if we're going to post his Chance The Rapper collab "Confident," we might as well point out the next time the Biebs hooks up with another underground mixtape-rapper type.

The Week In Pop: Meet The New Wave Of British Pop Stars

We at Stereogum have the UK on the brain this week. And while there's a big difference between "Britpop" and "British pop," this seems like an appropriate time to point out just how many singers from the motherland have been making waves on these shores.
