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.”
Katy Perry has done the seemingly impossible and matched Michael Jackson’s staggering record of achieving 5 #1 songs from one album on the Billboard chart. Perry achieved the feat with her latest release, “Last Friday Night”, thus making her the first female AND second artist to achieve this in the 53 yr history of the chart.
Her second album, “Teenage Dream” now joins Michael Jackson’s “Bad” album to officially garner 5 Number 1′s.
Katy Perry attended the official Smurfs 3D premiere over the weekend and wore a very special customised Smurfette dress for the occasion. The newloy blonde pop singer posed with her striking outfit alongside some of the cartoon’s characters.
What a year Katy Perry has had, not only has she had 4 singles from her current album “Teenage Dream” hit the Number 1 spot on the Billboard Chart, but if her latest release, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” also hits the top spot, Perry will match Michael Jackson’s record.
Jackson achieved the impressive feat of 5 Number 1 singles from one record with his album, “Bad” in 1987.
The achievement will also make Perry the first woman in Billboard history to achieve the record!
Katy Perry has ditched the latex and sex factor for her latest promo single “Last Friday Night”. The popstar has adopted geek chic for the single artwork and video, rocking a pair of braces and glasses. What do you think of Katy’s latest look?
