Pop music is used to make sure that babylon's youth don't think too much about the things that are going on in the earth. They don't want their youth to start realizing the injustice of their system and become "brainwashed" into wanting to change it.
They teach their youth the things that they want them to know through television and the schools. From when they are young until they enter adulthood, the schools define the values of their foreparents. Even promoting some of their wickedness as something good and intelligent.
Babylon is not interested in outside influences opening the eyes of their children. So they promote mindless music that doesn't teach, reveal or challenge. The music just speaks of things like superficial relationships, partying and a lot of musical rhymes that hardly even have a subject. The music also keeps their youth's mind on sex, so that they don't have the desire to think about much else, except for what small talk to say, or maybe the tests and projects they need to complete in school.
The few artists that are considered pop but don't fit this criteria are allowed exceptions. The music industry uses these to give the appearence that they promote "all" kinds of music. Sometimes this backfires on them, but they soon correct it with the flooding of the airways with more mindless music.
