Grammy-nominated songwriter Linda Perry recently took some shots at pop star Katy Perry during an interview in Entertainment Weekly. “Who wants a f***ing Katy Perry record? I'm sorry, you're gonna get the two songs that are probably the hits that are good, but the rest of the album is gonna be cr**p. 'It's gonna sound like sh***.”
The former 4 Non Blondes front woman unleashed the vitriol after being asked about changes in the music industry over the past twenty years: “Not saying that Katy is bad; she’s great for what she does, but she’s not reinventing the wheel, she’s not giving substance, she’s just giving microwave popcorn for you to feast on right at this moment.”
Perry also stated that music industry's focus on quick money is “part of the reason why the music business is in turmoil.” She is also not a great fan of Adele, although Perry thinks her best-selling album 21 is a solid record.
Perry has written and co-written numerous hit songs, including Christina Aguilera’s anthem ‘Beautiful’ and Pink's ‘Get the Party Started.’
