Oh, no she didn’t!
In a recent backstage interview at the Ford Amphitheater in LA, esteemed songwriter and former 4-Non Blondes lead singer Linda Perry more-than-happily voiced her thoughts and opinions on pop megastar Katy Perry.
The songwriter says of Katy:
“Who wants a fucking Katy Perry record? I’m sorry. You’re gonna get two songs that are probably the hits that will be good, but the rest of the record is gonna be crap.” She continues, “She’s not looking to change the world musically... so all the power to her and everybody who is like that. I’m not saying it’s bad, I’m saying it’s not what I participate in music and that is the reason why the music business is in turmoil.”
Is that why, Linda?
You may be the writer behind hits for Pink, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera but... we sure haven’t seen you captivate a massive global audience like Katy-Kat OR become the second artist in history, after Michael Jackson, to have five songs from one album reach the top spot on the Billboard 100 chart. Linda goes on to call Katy’s music “microwave popcorn" and "crap.” Hmm... sounds like someone has a bit of jealousy to sort out.
Regardless of L.Perry’s comments, we know personally the ample amount of raw talent KP holds within her abilities. Weather or not she projects that in her current work is another story.
Play nice, ladies.
