Fad, fad, fad.
Just like Frank Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles, Madonna, Menudo, New Kids on the Block, NSync, Backstreet Boys, Hannah Montana, and whichever "pop
star" you want to list, they will fade as soon as the people behind the marketing machine start losing money.
I think people forget that most of these "pop stars" are just faces. They don't write the songs, don't play the instruments, can't sing (on stage
it's lip synced and in the studio, it's ProTools), don't concept, shoot or produce their videos or other multimedia projects.
They are products, usually under contract with the Disney Corporation since they were kids (I pointing at you Britanny Spears, Justin Timberlake,
Christina Aguilara and Miley Cyrus, etc.). They're formed, created and molded to fit a marketing concept. When it fails we call them a
one-hit-wonder. When it succeeds, they're a "pop superstar".
Throw it all away and go down to your local live music outlet and check some real music, whether its blues, hip-hop, metal, or just rock.
