    Sigur Rós singer Jonsi Birgisson told Gigwise that he loves pop music. Like Rihanna. Nicki Minaj. David Guetta. Seriously.

    He said, "I really like the typical pop I hear on the radio. I don't buy it, but when I hear it on the radio when I'm driving I turn it up. I like Nicki Minaj and David Guetta - who everybody hates - but I think he has some good songs! 'Titanium' is really good, I especially like that one. I like Rihanna too…I like Nicki Minaj too…I really like 'Superbass', but I don't like the new one. I expected something more flamboyant and over the top."

    Did Sigur Ros just sink their indie cred? Or is it cool that the singer likes pretty pop? And why the hell does everyone hate David Guetta?
