Pop Quotations

Pop Art looks out into the world. It doesn't look like a painting of something, it looks like the thing itself.
Roy Lichtenstein

Engineers are behind the cars we drive, the pills we pop and the way we power our homes.
James Dyson

I used to love Kurt Cobain, when he was telling people we're a pop band. People would laugh, they thought of it as good old ironic Kurt. But he wasn't being ironic.

Once the subject matter of rock n' roll changed from cars and pop love songs to songs about really true love and the blues and death and mortality, this light bulb went off in my head and I went, 'Oh, that's what they're doing. That's kind of - that's art.'
David Chase

I urge younger artists to know that you don't have to be anything you don't want. You can do whatever's comfortable for you. From the music I make, to the things I do in my life, I'm true to my R&B core. I have the capability to make pop records and crossover, but that's not my aim.
Trey Songz
