Teenage Dream is unquestionably front-loaded, but we've saved some fun for the back end of this lengthy feature.
Remember when Eminem first started to get popular? Remember all the controversy? Those songs are so quaint now. I guess there was some uproar over Katy's Seasame Street appearance, but no one seems bothered by her songs. Is it a sign of changing times, or is rap music just that much scarier to conservative Americans than pop?
Not suggesting that we should get upset about Katy Perry songs, by the way. If anything, I'm glad that we're not freaking out over some dumb pop songs. Yay, us.
