Pop Shots - Replacing Stale Pop Tarts
Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. This week Pop Shots is hitting you with a theme based column that’s all about pop tarts. Not the kind you eat, but the kind you listen to.

Back in 1999 there was an explosion of blonde haired teen pop stars that was led by a former Mousketeer named Britney Spears. Her debut single, “...Baby One More Time,” became a landmark song and as soon as it blew up the record industry was ready to trot out any clone they could find. The scene became flooded with blond pop tarts, some talented, some not so much so. Unfortunately for those singers, Pop Tarts tend to go stale fairly quickly, and now that it’s been a little over a decade most of them have seen their time pass. That’s why this week I’m strolling through the music industry’s breakfast aisle, taking a look at which acts have replaced the pop tarts that are no longer quite as tasty.
