“Don’t be such a snob about pop music!” could also be the title of this episode, which features Vancouver pop princess Celina K., also known as the musical act “future star.” Celina and I chat about why we love pop music and how pop stars such as Ariana Grande and Kesha can be beacons of light in difficult times. We also debunk the notion that pop music sucks because the lyrics are cliched, and we discuss how pub karaoke is a magical thing that brings people together. We also chat about the politics of cuteness and why being a music student in university can lead to a whole lot of crying. Also featured: two short n' sweet tracks from future star’s latest album, Cryorities!
