Famed singer, songwriter, producer and ex-member of 4 Non Blondes, Linda Perry, was interviewed recently about Adele and Katy Perry. Linda made it clear that she wasn’t a fan of Kerry’s music and labelled her album “crap”.
“It’s the crappy, like who wants a fucking Katy Perry record? I’m sorry. You know, you’re gonna get the two songs that are probably the hits that are good but the rest of the album is gonna be crap. It is, it’s gonna sound like shit and who cares about buying that record? So people download the single and then that’s it.
And not saying that Katy’s bad, I mean she’s great for what she does but she’s not reinventing the wheel, she’s not giving substance, she’s giving you know microwave popcorn for you to feast on right at this moment, you know. And that’s it and that’s what she wants to do obviously: she’s not looking to change the world musically, she’s not, you know, 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 and that is the reason why the music business is in turmoil so to say.”
