Place Your Bets: The A-POP-Calypse Is Finally Upon Us

Will this autumn be the end of the world pop music as we know it? The next few months will see major releases from Katy Perry, One Direction, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Eminem, and Britney Spears — basically every popular musician who matters. (The only notable absence is Rihanna, who normally releases a new album every fall. What gives, Bad Gal?) Who will rule? Who will flop? Only time and iTunes will tell. Welcome to The A-POP-Calypse.

After the jump, use The Predictor to place your bets. Then, take cover and prepare for the onslaught of chart upset and fan drama.
