Culture can be divided into two types, high culture and low, popular or pop-culture.

High culture consists of arty stuff for people who are stuck up, like opera, painting, sculpture and music.

Pop culture consists of things people actually enjoy, mostly because they are too stupid to appreciate high culture. Examples include Britney Spears, Tom Cruise, hip hop "music" and Who magazine.

However, according to postmodernism (reference needed), the subdivision of culture into high and popular culture is a purely cultural phenomenon. All is culture. Even science is culture. Although someone added that this is postmodernism it is not (yes it is -Reference needed). It is just a rational view on culture, unlike the division of culture into high and low culture which is a typical example of stereotypical thinking.
