Pop Music Stars - Booklist

These additions to the Pop Music Stars series spotlight three strong, creative, and uniquely talented women who have wide appeal among young readers. Filled with graphics, sidebars, and numerous color— often full-page—photos, the books share the same format. Introductory “Breakthrough” sections provide career overviews, and subsequent chapters (“A Star Is Born,” “Greatest Moments,” “Behind the Curtain,” “Brand,” and “Modern Megastar”) fill in details about personal and professional lives. Vocabulary words are defined before each chapter, and the sophisticated, descriptive text is both accessible and engaging. While there’s plenty of material devoted to songs, costumes and staging, musical influences, awards, and public personas, more space is devoted to each star’s activism and philanthropy. Dua Lipa relates how this London-born singer-songwriter’s parents fled Kosovo as refugees and how she has won humanitarian awards for her work as an international human rights advocate. Written prior to the recent lawsuits against the singer, Lizzo emphasizes the performer’s promotion of self-love and body positivity as well as her fundraising charity concerts. Megan Thee Stallion covers the rapper-songwriter’s scholarship program to help women of color obtain college educations and creation of a charitable foundation in honor of her parents. Whether collaborating with fellow megastars or hosting Saturday Night Live, these contemporary musical role models will be popular picks on the biographies shelf. —Kathleen McBroom
