About Pop Singer

"Pop Singer" is a song by American singer-songwriter John Mellencamp (then under the stage name "John Cougar Mellencamp"), released on April 29, 1989, from Mellencamp's tenth studio album Big Daddy. Mellencamp wrote the song himself, in response to how the music industry was attempting to hide his "real" image, which included adopting one of his previous stage names, Johnny Cougar. The single was moderately successful worldwide, reaching number one in Canada and New Zealand, number eight in Australia, and number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Never wanted to be no pop singer,
Never wanted to write no pop songs.
Never had no weird hair to get my songs over.
Never wanted to hang out after the show.
Pop singer writing of pop songs.

Never wanted to have my picture taken.
Now, who would want to look into these eyes?
Just want to make it real - good, bad or indifferent.
That's the way that I live and that's the way that I'll die 
As a pop singer of pop songs.
