As previously mentioned, popular music has never been more accessible to the masses than it is right now. And that author is trying to spin that as a bad thing. Poor journalism.

Matt's point is that those kids that like Beiber and Ke$ha today probably would have liked Queen and Zeppelin just fine if they were kids at that time. Kids are, well, sorta stupid. They like what they're told to like. We all did when we were kids. (Just admit it) The reason popular music sells better now is that instead of having to schlep down to the record store (such things barely even exist anymore), you can get your fix of popular music with a couple of mouse clicks or tablet taps or whatever else you do on these newfangled devices.
Makes me wonder if The Bieber has a beaver.
