Pop Tarts! The epic story of the rise and fall of Britney, Christina, Mandy, and the rest of the pop princesses. An exclusive excerpt from Marisa Meltzer’s new book, Girl Power. Britney was the sweet, dim, slightly naughty girl next door whose albums every parent would let their 10-year-old have, while Christina was molded in the Madonna school of pop stardom, all sexual agency and dance beats. Nineteen ninety-eight was the year Titanic swept the Oscars, Viagra went on sale, and Britney Spears was introduced to the world Baby One More Time.
Pop-Tarts is a brand of toaster pastries that the Kellogg Company introduced in 1964. Pop-Tarts have a sugary filling sealed inside two layers of thin, rectangular pastry crust. Most varieties are also frosted. Although sold pre-cooked, they are designed to be warmed inside a toaster or microwave oven. They are usually sold in pairs inside Mylar (previously foil) packages and do not require refrigeration.
And with every great product, there's a great backstory. We did some digging into Pop-Tarts and found some interesting factoids. Here's what we learned: 1. The idea for Pop-Tarts came from a refrigerated dog food invention. Yup, you read that right.

The girl group’s legacy rests on being one of the most impactful K-pop acts in Japan; with their addicting songs, Kara dominated Japanese charts and became the first female foreign act to hold a show at the Tokyo Dome. Breaking into the second largest music industry in the world was no small feat, and Kara was considered a leader of the Korean wave's heyday of the early '10s. 5. After School and subunit Orange Caramel. There are few other acts in Korea who put their all into their performances the way After School did in the first few years of their career. Going strong 10 years into their career, Girls’ Generation are undisputed K-pop royalty. Formerly a nine-member group, the eight women of Girls’ Generation are well into their 20s but still charm South Korea regularly with their tightly produced pop songs and vibrant femininity.
Dream pop, however, is a little different. The term has meant different things to different audiences at different times, because it was always more of a descriptor than a proper genre. So in assembling this list, we took the descriptive quality of the term and ran with it, assembling a list of 30 records that felt like they belonged together even as they came from different scenes, eras, and geographic locations. In some cases, we defined what belongs here by thinking about what the music is not. We made a conscious decision to not include records that wound up on our Best Shoegaze Albums list-even though shoegaze and dream pop have, at times, been used interchangeably-and we avoided the more twee end of the indie pop spectrum.
