Question Do Pop Artist listen to their own music?

It just occurred to me; it would be pretty self centered if Kid Rock or Eminem listened to their own music like we listen to ours (normally, I guess.) But then I wonder; would it be self centered?
When I make art, I hang it on my wall(s). If I write something, I like to frame that too.
So that would make me self centered by that logic.

The only reason I bring it up is I heard it on tv "We caught POP ARTIST listening to their OWN MUSIC" and I was all like that's self centered, obviously I've changed my mind.

As usual, the construction of your post makes it hardly comprehendable.

As someone who has recorded in a studio on mulitple occasions... No.

When someone listens to their own music it's usually for reflection or to think what you could have done better, to work out where you're going in the future, to congratulate yourself for something you loved or punish yourself for bad works. Why shouldn't you relish something you have done well?

When you're a musician you obviously make music that you enjoy. If your love is death metal you don't tend to go out and write Goa. You're making music for yourself too. If you make a song that you love, listening to it is like listening to any other song you love but it feels more special because you created it yourself.

You might argue that a 'pop artist' doesn't input the same and i guess they don't input the same, as many simply perform a pre-written track. But their performance on stage and with their vocals are pivotal. The same as an opera singer or an actor in a film or on stage.

It's a complicated thing, but not self centred.
