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.”
Rihanna flew in on a private jet to performed some of her biggest hits at the Bergen Calling Festival in Norway including Disturbia, Rude Boy and Only Girl (In The World). Take a look at the pics below.

What do you think?
Royce Da 5’9 gives his opinion on Jay Z and Kanye’s ‘Watch the Throne’ and how it compares with other high profile collaborations, including his own with Eminem. The rapper said:
“I think it’s real good for hip-hop that they did that…We put ours out, they put theirs out, Drake and Weezy allegedly putting one out. On the other end of the spectrum, you got Gucci and Waka putting one out. It’s good to have that balance. I don’t know if I would compare our project to theirs, if only because they’re so different.”
Talking the Rap-Up, Royce continued:
“They went more for the album feel. It sounds like they were 100 percent comfortable with putting this sound of music out and it’s the same with us…We went in there and did kind of the opposite; just going back and forth and sparring lyrically. We just tried to rap on another level and didn’t try and worry about making a complete album”
On promotion of his and Em’s album ‘Hell: The Sequel‘:
“Our thing was we didn’t even want to raise expectations…We just wanted to announce we were doing it after we were already done and put it out 30 days later. Let hip-hop get a dose of what we could do and not worry about anything else.”
Royce’s has just released his debut solo album, ‘Success is Certain’.
