2011 Best of Pop - Nominations and Vote!

Holler to our lovely readers!

Today, we have something fantastically exciting. Our BEST/WORST of the year choices have arrived! However, instead of doing it on our own, we've collaborated with FIVE of our favorite blogs. Each blog has a best/worst pick for every category, and each blog is displaying one category, so you must check out the other sites to see all of our nominations. Since y'all love us, and we love these blogs, we figure you might love them enough to add them to your daily reading list (there's some sort of mathematical theory about this, right? - if A=B and B=C, then A=C?) All of the blogs thought it would be fun to do an interactive end of year poll, in which every reader can name his or her best choices (unfortunately, we couldn't do one for worst)! As an FYI, the poll only displays our choices for BEST of the year, so if you want to see what we picked for 'WORST' in each category, you must visit the other blogs' sites (we've provided links below).

Anyhow, let's get started, shall we? Here at Unapologetically POP, we're displaying each blog's choice for...

Best & Worst Collaborations of 2011:

Whats That Music Guy:
Vertigo Shtick:
  • BEST: Rihanna ft. Britney  Spears - S&M (Remix) - There's a lot of suckage with this single, from Ester Dean's tired, tacky sex-punning lyrics to the David LaChapelle plagiarizing music video to the inescapable fact that Britney clearly needed to blow her nose on her day in the studio, to the blatant marketing ploy it was bringing Spears on in the first place when poor RiRi couldn't get the song to #1 by herself. But Britney Spears' first, unexpected "NA NA NA COME ON" will go down as one of the most viscerally thrilling moments in pop music history.
  • WORST: David Guetta ft. Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj - Where Them Girls At The melody is boring, the lyrics are conventional and dull, and Nicki Minaj name-checks Peabo Bryson. 'Nuff said. 
Wacky Crazy Music:
OMFG Music
Unapologetically POP!
  • BEST: Cher Lloyd and Mike Posner - With Your Love
  • WORST: Porcelain Black and Lil Wayne - This is What Rock N' Roll Looks Like – It’s like chewing on dirt.  Our ears are still bleeding.  Not even RedOne could save this song – too, too, TOO rough.

Unapologetically POP! Best/Worst Video
  • BEST: Katy Perry – Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) - A neontastic ode to '80s POP culture (i.e. John Hughes movies). We love how Katy incorporates Kenny G, Debbie Gibson, Corey Feldman, Hanson, the Glee kids, and Rebecca Black – people from the all over the POP timeline.
  • WORST: Rebecca Black – Friday - You’re 14 & driving to a club? You don’t even have your driver’s permit yet.
After you've looked over the above sites, please take a few minutes to share your picks for best/worst EVERYTHING in the poll below :)

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.

We're excited to see what everyone picks (because YOU, dear readers, know all!) We'll be welcoming in the New Year with some pink champagne and a post about the poll results. Cheers!

  1. You can make $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So large companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, fills out surveys and gives them their opinion.
