Wondered this for years. I'm more of an alternative/indie type of person. However, I went through a 1D phase, mostly because the fandom was a very humorous group and I ended up kinda liking them a lot once I watched their videos and stuff. However, why do people hate popstars like Justin Bieber, One Direction, all the teen music stuff. Obviously, Justin Bieber has done stuff to make you hate him but LONG before, people just hated him, simply for existing. I hated him, because everyone else did, but I realized that's a very stupid reason. People are just always calling them gay, which I don't find to be an insult and disgraces to the human race. A guy may of never even heard of some popstar and will see that his fanbase is mainly young girls and he is instantly garbage. Why does it bother you what teenage/preteen girls listen to and scream over? Okay, their music may not be your thing or terrible to you but everyone's got stuff they hate but they don't wish death on those who make that type of music. I mean, usually it's not even people I listen to so I'm not even offended that someone dissed an idol, I just really don't get why you have to hate people and wish death on people who 1. You don't know. 2. Doesn't effect you. 3. Makes people happy. A lot of them even donate a lot of money, visit fans in hospitals and I just don't get what is so infuriating about young guys going after their dreams, even if they do suck. It's not like you're jealous, why do you care what excites an 11 year old girl? Some say their ruining music but they typically stay in their own genres and the people who say it always claim that they listen to rock music or heavy metal, rap music. Just anything but those people. Often times they have NO idea who they are so why hate them? Such ridiculous negativity. I just don't get it I guess. It just seems like they do it for the hell of it? It doesn't really effect me, I just truly DO NOT understand. What's the point?

It's not that people hate male pop singers, it's that they hate any white male who is successful. There isn't one successful white man in American who isn't roundly hated by the majority of people. It's just resentment, because white men are seen as being the Great Satan by minorities, feminists, and social justice warriors.1

Because they wish girls were falling over them instead of the popstar. I love Justin and 1D and so many of my guy friends / boyfriend dog on them. I don't really care to be honest , they never have a legit reason on why they don't like them, so I just go with pure jealousy. If they actually sat and listened to their music they would see that have quite a lot of bops. And also boy bands and pop singers are more gravitated towards girls anyways ( when a girl listens to their music they think " I wish a guy would say this to me.")0
