Top pop music artist for October 19, 2010 !

P!NK with her pink hair !

The top pop music artist for October 19, 2010 was Pink with "Raise Your Glass". This song was released just 13 days before it became a top song.
Pinks birth name is Alecia Beth Moore, she was born on September 8th, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Her parent’s names are Judith Moore, and her father Jim Moore. Pink is a very outspoken vocal artist. Many of her songs have been major hits! Pink got her name from being embarrassed at a young age when she turned bright red from blushing so much. When she started going by “P!NK”, she had dyed her hair pink.
With Pink being such a hit with all of her amazing songs, she is also an Award-winning Grammy American singer/songwriter. Her sense of style has also made an impact on many people around the world, which includes the UK, Austria, and Australia.
 Pink wrote “Raise Your Glass” because she said that she "wanted to write a song about underdogs. The protagonists of many of her hit singles have never been part of the popular crowd.” She wanted to be able to show that those people who weren’t the best and most popular still get the notice and recognition that they need.
Here is part of the lyrics…


“So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways
All my underdogs
We will never be, never be
Anything but loud and nitty gritty
Dirty little freaks
Won't you come on, and come on and
Raise your glass
Just come on, and come on and
Raise your glass

So if you're too school for cool
And you're treated like a fool
You can choose to let it go
We can always, we can always
Party on our own”

Top pop music artist for September 9, 2010 !

The top pop artist for September 9, 2010 is Katy Perry with her top song “Teenage Dream”.

Kate Hudson

Katy Perry’s birth name is Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson, she is well known for her up beat songs. Many of her listeners wait and listen for the next song of Katy Perry’s career. Katy Perry was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, CA. When growing up, she was the daughter of parents who were both pastors. So she grew up in a very religious household. She was not allowed to listen to certain music because they believed it was bad for her.
Later on in her life when she was about 17, she started her career as a Christian artist. While being in the spotlight as Katy Hudson, she began to notice and listen to other artists of different genres. Katy Hudson changed her name to Katy Perry because she believed that she could get it easily confused with the actress Kate Hudson. Katy changed her last name to “Perry” from “Hudson”, because her mother’s maiden name is Perry.
Teenage Dream was written because it tells of someone older falling in love and the love of their life is making them feel like they’re a teenager in love all over again.
“You think I'm pretty
Without any make-up on
You think I'm funny
When I tell the puch line wrong
I know you get me
So I'll let my walls come down, down

Before you met me
I was a wreck
But things were kinda heavy
You brought me to life
Now every February
You'll be my valentine, valentine
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We'll be young forever

You make me
Feel like
I'm living a Teenage Dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's runaway
And don't ever look back
Don't ever look back”

Top Music artist on Aug, 2010 !

For all of the month of August, "Love the Way You Are" by Rihanna featuring Eminem.
This song was one of thee biggest hits that either one of them ever had. They also have a part. 2 to this song. Most people such as myself think that part 1. of  "Love the Way You Are" is the best out of the two.
Some Lyrics from the song.

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
This is a song that tells people about a bad relationship that a woman is in. And isnt able to get out of it because her boyfriend is very abusive towards her when she tries to leave.
Not anything I would want in my life. But there are people who go through this. But I do like listening to this song because it gives others courage to get help.
