Define 'pop music'. It seems your definition is anything with lyrics is pop music, and is therefore trying to be popular. I'm sure many artists would disagree with you that they are writing their music just to be popular. Pop music is a bad word for me as well, but I more relate it to the likes of what you would see if you turned on smash hits (or whatever it is called) on a saturday morning. You know the beyonce sort of biso. I haven't listened to your latest yet, but I've got one more and it has no lyrics - Marconi Union?
