Learning Russian Through Pop Culture

Hello all: I am currently learning Russian on Duolingo and I am interested in learning more about Russian pop cultures (newspapers, Youtube, trends, music, magazines) as a way to improve my pronunciation. Please comment to let me know any musicians, actors, movies, etc that are familiar in a Russian society. спасибо!

Время и Стекло is a good pop duo - they're from Ukraine, but they sing in Russian. Their YouTube channel:

Песня 404:

(I don't know a lot about the trends in Russia - does anyone living in Russia know how popular Время и Стекло is there?)

I just picked up Russian on here, so following to get suggestions also.

I don't know about current trends in Russia, but two sources I have already are a couple of TaTu's CDs from early 2000's and my kids found Masha And The Bear episodes on youtube last year.

Oh yes, I remembered some Russian tourists who once recommended to me about Masan and the Bear. Thank you for sharing. :)
