Short Link to this Quote:



Ian Anderson seems to be criticizing some pop music for targeting child consumers in order to make money.

His point may be that some pop songs are essentially advertisements aimed at getting kids to beg their parents for certain toys, clothes or other branded products featured in music videos or endorsed by pop stars.

While exposing children to new music can be enjoyable, Anderson appears to argue that some pop is more focused on commercialism and marketing to young fans than artistic expression. However, pop music also brings many children happiness and inspires creativity.

Overall, reasonable people can disagree on where to draw the line between entertainment and exploitation of youth audiences for profit.
