Pop music is great in the same way candy is great. Good in small amounts but if you have too much you start to get sick. I have no qualms listening to pop music but I can't listen to them 24/7 on the radio the way some people do because I just get tired of the same 5 songs again and again, and occasionally, a new song I can't stand from the get go is on and I just want to avoid that like crazy.
When one pursues self worth via ego inflating accomplishments you over value your perceived difference in the areas you care about. To the hipster artist, informed uniqueness can be a reflection of superiority. To be different as such, to such an individual, is to be more intelligent or more creative. Special. Ultimately, better. A better person. A better person than you, the person who may judge them.
It's the kind of attitude that will keep a person from telling you that something considered cliche to enjoy is actually important to them. It's an attitude that drips from above average intelligence, insecure millennials. And it's the attitude that this board is soak in.
Differentiation of self isn't taking a right turn cause everyone else is. And it's also not taking a left just to be different. It's being adult enough to choose the direction you wish to go and then going that way because it's what you actually want to do. But that simple thing often takes bravery. That's why people don't praise Nevermind, or Sgt. Peppers in these parts.
