Popular = for or from the people, so what's wrong with popularity?

Thanks for saying so, Dan.

Nothing really. I believe Mssr. Wilde refers to that homogenized version of popular that is, by design, meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Even then, it probably isn't bad for anyone except the purists and the critics.
