Linda Perry, super-producer, has something to say! And she should speak, because she’s a formidable presence in pop music, having written a lot of important songs (#iambeautiful), and also having fronted 4 Non Blondes, which blessed/cursed us all with “What’s Up.” (But seriously, she’s worked with a lot of one-name pop starlets, from Christina to Gwen to Pink.)
So what does she think of Adele and Katy Perry, her own namesake? Well, she’s not a huge fan of Adele, although she’s glad that she exists (ooookay?). But of Katy Perry, yeah, she’s not that into it. In fact, Katy Perry is not “reinventing the wheel,” according to Linda Perry, which is pretty spot on, if you consider that Katy Perry’s M.O. is basically, y’know, boobs. Lots of boob. Sorry, Katy!
