Wrong. Being popular is only a sign of popularity. Quality varies.

Popularity means a lot of people think you're good, right?

It means that a lot of people listen to their music, but that commonly means pulling from the lowest common denominator aka casual music fans aka musical morons with no taste that wasn't printed on their tongue by the radio, so it's not a good way to gauge quality.

Eh, lots of people who aren't casual fans listen to Michael Jackson and The Beatles. They make good music.

you can't pick and choose. either sales make you objectively good or they don't (spoilers tho they don't)

if people listening to michael jackson and the beatles is what makes them great then the same can now be said for taylor swift and one direction

no disrespect to taylor
