Father’s Day: Favorite Dad in Pop Music – Readers Poll
Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! In celebration of Father’s Day 2012, PopCrush wants to know who your favorite dad in pop music is. In this poll, readers can vote for artists like Will Smith, aka the Fresh Prince, ‘Without You’ singer Usher, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and many more as their favorite dad.
In addition to Smith (who is father to ‘Fireball’ songstress Willow as well as two boys), Usher (who has two sons), and Barker (who is frequently seen out and about with his daughter and son), Chris Martin of Coldplay also comes in on our list. The musician has been in ‘Paradise’ ever since he and wife Gwyneth Paltrow had their children, son Moses and daughter Apple.
Speaking of baby bliss, Jay-Z welcomed his daughter Blue Ivy Carter in early 2012, and even though he’s new at it, you can tell he’s gonna be a great dad just by the way he holds her. And while Eminem and Lil Wayne have had their own personal struggles in the past, that doesn’t mean they aren’t great dads to their children. Same goes for Diddy and Snoop Dogg, who have both raised successful and respectful kids.
Finally, we can’t have this poll without including Ricky Martin. The ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ singer is now livin’ la vida daddy, as he keeps busy taking care of his twin boys Matteo and Valentino, whom Martin had via surrogate. And last but not least, we can’t forget the kind-hearted Taylor Hanson, who has a whole gaggle of kids with his wife Natalie.
