Of course it is music. Even Techno is music despite the fact it typically does not contain live instrumentation, it still has rhythms, themes, lyrics etc.
Music is a form of entertainment.

Something as technical as Heavy Metal is definitely music, some of the best music is arguably made by Metal bands. Whether you like a genre or not does not make it 'Not Music'. Metal has some of the most technical time signatures in songs. Progressive rock/alternative bands are known for technical time signatures and crafting music that is not cliched.

Despite the simplicity of pop music, and the cheesy lyrics, it is still music.

If you are not well versed in the music scene, do not even discuss such things, it makes you looks silly. I do not mean to sound harsh, but seriously, your opinion does not determine what is and is not music. Music is music by the definition of being music, despite different tastes people may have.
