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."

So much for "I Kissed a Girl" making her a one-hit wonder.

Katy Perry and Michael Jackson may not have much in common, but they're the only artists in music history to post five #1 hits from the same album.

Perry is therefore, obviously, the first woman ever to achieve the feat thanks to hits from Teenage Dream. "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" is now the fifth.

  • Hot Smurfette
  • The Late King of Pop

Interestingly, Michael's iconic album Thriller didn't achieve the feat, but its follow-up Bad, with hits like "Man in the Mirror" and "Smooth Criminal," did.

Jackson spent a total of seven weeks at the top with his Bad songs, while Perry has occupied the top spot now for a record cumulative 18 weeks.

Katy Perry cannot be stopped.

The singer's first movie role (voiceover only, granted) helped The Smurfs earn a tie for first place at the box office this weekend, while the singer has also made music history on the Billboard chart:

"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" is Katy's fifth single off "Teenage Dream" to hit number-one on Billboard's Pop Song chart, making her the only artist in the chart's nearly 20-year history to accomplish such a feat.

All this, and she's a 10 in bed!

Russell Brand and Katy Perry have been subjected to headlines about their supposed trouble in paradise recently ... heck, since the day they got married.

But in the wake of the most recent groundswell of speculation - Russell reportedly cavorting with brunettes not named Katy - the couple is fighting back.

"Just cause we don't flaunt our relationship doesn't mean there's something wrong," Katy wrote. "Privacy is our luxury. #tabloidsrtrash #gossipisgross"

Russell echoed his wife's sentiments and cheered her Tweets.

The Brands

This time around, it was the Daily Mail (UK) and the British weekly magazine Heat that took the lead on spearheading the newest round of reports.

While the Daily Mail reported Brand was seen with a "Katy Perry lookalike," it's Heat that went a step too far, saying they're on "a trial separation."

Citing unnamed sources (obvi), the rag blamed conflicting work schedules and said they've seen each other four days in the past six months.

Perry is far from pleased. Just recently, her legal team hit back at NW, an Australian tabloid, for claiming that she was unfaithful to Brand.

You could be next, Heat.

Some of Lady Gaga's Little Monsters are not happy with Katy Perry right now, voicing opposition to an image the latter recently posted on Twitter.

Referring to the trend known as planking, Perry wrote "PROPER planking FTW!" under a photo of herself posing as a mermaid under a bridge.

She does make for a fairly convincing piece of plywood ...

Katy Perry Planking FTW!

Harmless planking, right? Not to some Little Monsters it's not.

The issue some Lady Gaga fans are taking with Perry's photo?

Gaga's '80s-themed "Edge Of Glory" music video was initially going to feature her as a mermaid - under a bridge no less, according to leaked pics.

Additionally, the Lady performed as a mermaid on French TV last month and has said in interviews that her next video will be mermaid-themed.

What do you think? Is Katy ripping off the Gaga?

When Katy Perry opens her mouth, multiple #1 hits come out.

Only recently, something else did, if you know what we mean.

Katheryn Perry

We mean that the Teenage Dream singer was forced to cancel concerts for Friday and Saturday after suffering food poisoning and severe dehydration.

The concerts, which were to occur in Chicago and St. Paul, have been rescheduled. Perry, at the very least, already posted the new dates on Twitter:

"Chicago and St. Paul: I'm so sorry to have to postpone today and tomorrow's shows. But I'll be back 8/21 (CHI) and 8/23 (St. Paul)! I am going to return in a couple of weeks to give them the very best show ever!"

She hopes to be back in Regina, Saskatchewan, on Wednesday.

Get well soon, Katy!
