Music
Pop music

Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s, deriving from rock and roll. The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style).

As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country; nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks.

Katina

Neposedi (Russian: Непоседы) is a children's music group formed in Moscow, Russia in 1991 by Elena Pindzhoyan and Yuri Nikolaev. The title refers to fidgety children, who are unable to sit quietly in one place.

Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina of t.A.T.u. were the most successful of the group. They were both members from 1997 until 1999. Volkova claims to have been banned for smoking, drinking and swearing;]citation needed[ Neposedi, however, deny this, stating she had graduated as many of the members do at a certain age. Lena (Lena Katina), of t.A.T.u., left Neposedi soon after Volkova.

Lena
