Popular  culture, or pop culture, (literally: "the culture of the people")  consists of the cultural elements that prevail (at least numerically) in  any given society, mainly using the more popular media and the  vernacular and/or established. It results from the daily interactions,  needs and desires and cultural 'moments' that make up the
everyday  lives of the mainstream. It can include any number of practices,  including those pertaining to cooking, clothing, mass media and the many  facets of
entertainment such as sports and literature.

Pop culture finds its expression in the mass circulation of items from areas
such  as fashion, music, sport and film. The world of pop culture had a  particular influence on art from the early 1960s, through Pop Art.
