I think it's funny how many people will bash really popular music and say it's "not good." By what standards is it bad? What determines the absolute quality of a piece of art, be it song, painting, film, sculpture, literature, or video game?

Psy and Bieber are entertainers. They aim to entertain people -- and isn't that the purpose of art? You might say the purpose of art is to evoke a certain feeling or deep thought in an audience, but isn't that a form of entertainment?

Either way, it's hard to argue with the fact that Bieber and Psy have both provided a LOT of entertainment for a LOT of people, and I suggest that that is its own accomplishment. Whether you personally think their songs are good or absolute trash, they have provided countless hours of enjoyment for millions of people around the world. I think that's the definition of admirable. It's not like Gangnam Style even condones doing drugs or murdering people or anything. It's a pretty silly song. It's just for fun, and fun is pretty okay.

I agree and all but more importantly, nice avatar! :)
