The best pop music sounds futuristic. Justin Timberlake named his tour the FutureSex/LoveShow. Furthermore, who’s more on the cutting edge than Lady Gaga? The Black Eyed Peas actually live in present day 3008.
Even as the NSYNC leader, Justin showed early signs of prospering on his own. Once Timberlake committed to the idea of greatness, he became great. He let his passion flourish. Will you?
If Beyoncé is a dream girl, then Justin Timberlake is every girl’s dream. His Until the End of Time duet with Beyoncé still attracts daily views on YouTube as well as DailyMotion (pun intended). How can you get more futuristic than the apocalypse?
Of course Timberlake received high marks on his progress reports, because he’s progressive. Check out Ayo Technology by 50 Cent featuring Justin. Timberlake makes my top 10 pop star list because he works smart. I currently have him at #5, but with an array of smashing hits, he can easily move up to #1.
The face of music treats entertainment as a business. That’s why the passionate musician owns a portion of MySpace. By making intelligent decisions, instead of working hard, you’ll hardly have to work.
Lately, Lady Gaga has underperformed slightly. That is actually a good thing because she had time to reflect and introspect. That’s why I'm waiting patiently for the release of her next album.
One of these days, Gaga will perform on the moon. Remember where you read it first. I guarantee she’ll still look sexy too.
Seriously, while most musicians imitate, Lady Gaga innovates. Many pop stars sample oldies, but Gaga invents newbies. See ArtPop for proof that’s she’s unabashed and willing to try something new, exciting, and different.

There are several similarities between Fergie and Iggy Azalea. The Black Eyed Peas singer/rapper revolutionized music with bandleader will.i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo. ImmaBe influenced LMFAO's popular Party Rock Anthem. Furthermore, Fergie still influences Iggy Azalea’s career.
This is the same band that brought you the E.N.D (The Energy Never Dies) album, which included hits such as: Boom Boom Pow, I Gotta Feeling, and Rock That Body. Additionally, their music transcends time. Who remembers Craig Robinson’s Let’s Get It Started from the Hot Tub Time Machine?
“ And the bass keeps runnin’ runnin’, and runnin’, runnin…”
The band is in it for the long haul. Because they come from different walks of life, the group's music truly brings people together. The Black Eyed Peas dutifully embrace technology and the future. In the words of will.i.am, “you can’t say futuristic and then be afraid of the future.”
Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and the Black Eyed Peas can officially retire because they have produced enough content already to last two lifetimes. What is more, they have collected a treasure chest of timeless songs. I identify with all these musicians because I write timeless blogs.
