Linda Perry to Katy Perry: You Suck!

by at . Comments

Rocker Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame recently spoke out about the music of her contemporary namesake Katy Perry. In less than flattering terms.

Linda, who has also written songs for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and other young stars, was asked in an interview to pick the worst artist today.

Katy Perry topped her list.

Linda told music journalist Heath Daniels that Katy Perry only churns out tracks she compares to junk food, and is emblematic of the industry today.

"It's just different, it's different," Linda says. "You listen to the Adele record, and I'm not a huge fan of Adele, it's a solid record. Solid, and it's selling."

"So that means people are still buying records. It's the crap, like who wants a f--king Katy Perry record? I'm sorry, you know? You're gonna get the two hits that are good, but the rest of the album is gonna be crap."

"It is," she went on. "It's going to sound like s--t and who cares about buying that record? So people download the single and then that's it."

The problem with that logic is that Katy just tied a Michael Jackson record for five No. 1 singles off one album. What if an album is ALL hits?

If her point is that Katy is only a big-name star because of looks and generic pop songs designed to garner fast airplay - as opposed to an artiste dedicated to honing her craft and producing memorable work - we can see that.

But there's no disputing Perry's sales. That's just fact.

When Daniels deigned to ask if there would be any covers of Teenage Dream coming in the future from Linda, she actually looks disgusted.

"No, there will not be," she says.

It's hard to believe someone ( Linda Perry, in this case ) when they insult a musician ( Katy Perry ), and then turn around in literally the next sentence to basically say it's ok that musicians " like Katy " are doing what they're doing, THEN go back to saying " that's why the music business is the way it is today. "
Linda might be able to " own it " by closing with " I just got busted for being bitter and angry by anyone who actually bothered to pay any real attention to my inconsistent, non-side taking ranting and raving. " Her rant was bitter, angry, and passive aggressive. Yikes.

At 52 I still enjoy music such as Katy and Pink. Although Pink is much more talented, Katy is great. Fun, Upbeat get up and go music. Linda Perry should open up her mind, there are many artists out there who are exretemly talented even though they may not be her "style". If I remember right she ended up having issues with Pink after helping co-write some songs. Maybe artists end up bitter when they step out of the lime light???

First of all, Katy Perry, writes or co-writes her own songs, so she has talent, (regardless if they are pop top 40 style hits). Live, she doesn't sample her vocals. She is a great "live" vocalist. her songs don't sound the same, her voice isn't limited. The Adele hit in a Gnarls Barkley rip off (Crazy) the melody is so close just before the chorus. Linda Perry could not cut it as a live artist herself, yes she writes good songs with other artists but she hasn't burned it up either. Maybe she should collborate with Katy? Just because her music sells its crap to people. and artists who don't sel use the excuse they are "honing" their craft. pure BS. Go Katy.

Sorry but Katy Perry's music sucks compared to Michael Jackson's music and talent.Giving Katy Perry credit is like the music industry patting itself on the back for discovering and profitting from lousy talent.

Katy Perry does sound like crap when she sings live. She's cute blah blah blah but no "artist".

Katy Perry sucks. I'm not saying Linda Perry is my favorite artist or anything like that, but what she's saying is true. Katy Perry is like so many other so-called "musicians" of today...made in the studio. She sounds like crap live.

4 Non Blondes had, like one hit, and a pretty forgettable one at that. She's deluded, or maybe just plain old bitter
