Is today’s pop music too commercialized?



 I don’t think today’s pop music is TOO commercialized for the following three reasons.
 The first reason is that it is natural and reasonable for record companies to try to sell CDs as many as possible because it is a business for record companies although it is not for musicians. It is fine to commercialize pop music to some extent because it is not illegal and record companies cannot manage to keep business if CDs don’t sell at all.
 The second reason is that people can get more opportunities to listen to a wide variety of different musicians if it is commercialized well. It is good for people to have more opportunities to know different musicians because it gives people more kinds of entertainment.
 The final reason is that some musicians are trying to make different kinds of unconventional songs as pop music. Nowadays some musicians are challenging the conventionalism so that it is exciting and it helps people to learn the importance of a challenge.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid three reasons, I don’t think today’s pop music is TOO commercialized and it is necessary for pop music to be advertised well.
