17 Under 17: Pop’s Next Big Things
Posted by Exclusiveon 03/24/2011 at 3:14 PM
In this world, nothing is certain but death, taxes and the fact that teen stars grow up. Most of the kids who have dominated pop culture for the better part of the past decade—Miley, Taylor, Demi, Selena, Rihanna, Jordin and three guys with the last name Jonas—are old enough to vote, smoke, drink and get in all sorts of tabloid-y trouble, Meanwhile, boy-king-of-the-world Justin Bieber turned 17 last month, which means that there’s already a significant portion of his audience who have already outgrown him. So, which freakishly talented prodigies will dominate the Twittersphere and the Ellen DeGeneres Show in the months and years to come? Popdust presents “17 Under 17,” our picks for the artists, age 16 and under, who are best poised to capture the hearts and allowance money of young America.
