Progressive Themes To Keep Pop Music Fresh

July 25th, 2013 5:30pm EDT
Wiz Khalifa
The acceptance of formerly taboo themes in music serves as a contrast to music of the past.

An argument could be posed that musically, we live in a ‘post-innovative’ period.  What does  that big, fancy label mean in simple terms?

"I'm still unhappy with it. I think that's the worst thing we've done," said Team Christina's Chris Mann after the show.

Perhaps the only one to see any merit in the idea was Adam Levine, who remarked that it at...
