dance music vs pop music

It irritates me when people try to separate the two : dance music has to be brainless and simple while, ’serious’ pop music has to be difficult and lyrically oriented. I’ve always felt, even before I made my own music, that everything should be possible, all combinations. I want to be everything at once : clever, dumb, angry, sweet, ancient and childish, naive, experienced happy and melancholic.
