Certain member in school society who believe that they are better than everyone else this usually includes the really hot girls and rich guy that the hot girls go out with.

Opposites: Punks, Goths and nerds
Guy: that girl is so hot, do you think i have a chance with her?
Friend: no she's one of the popular girls she wouldn't look twice at a goth like you

The person doesn't have to be bitchy or spoiled or rich and gorgeous and the typical stereotype of the blonde cheerleader type. Someone popular is a person has friends and can hang out with any clique and be excepted. She can be prep and have friends who are nerds or skaters or punks. People like her and even if they don't like her, they respect her because she's cool and doesn't backstab or talk shit about people.
Any girl who is intimidating or manipualtive or bitchy is not popular. She just scares people into liking her. If she were normal, she wouldn't be popular. If the girl is pretty and rich, girls hang around her to get guys she doesn't want and to get stuff from her.

its usually a big clique with ppl that are out going and loud. we have lots of confidence and are usually on a schools sports team: cheerleaders,football were like most likely to be pretty and hot and we hang out with a pretty large group (10 and over) and we usually throw partys and dress like... hot; the guys are usually trouble makers and us girls are usually like always laughing at something or someone. theres alot of drama going on cuz sometimes you can become friends w/the wrong ppl and you trust them unfortunally. and just so all of you know we don't always crave attention, we just get it cuz all of the haters out there! that talk behind your back,i mean don't you get enough of that for your bffs (jk but stil..)
alice: ''i wish i was friends w/them''
Alex: ''no you don't, they're all bitchs!''
alice: ''yeah ik, but they are popular.''
^^^^HATER ALERT!!!^^^^
