She”s never been one to hold back her opinion, and now Courtney Love is taking aim at Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.
For Style.com”s spring issue Miss Love wrote a personal essay about the “mostly contrived” nature of the music industry.
She then attacked the 20-year-old singer”s poor choice in fashion. “Miley Cyrus is not setting any trends,” Courtney stated. “I wonder who decided to put her in white mesh and a part of pasties and a faux fur [For September”s iHeartRadio festival] It as dumb and trashy-looking.”
Regardless of her dislike towards the “We Can”t Stop” singer”s ensembles, the 49-year-old singer shared a small amount of praise towards Cyrus. “I liked her attitude and still do, but it”s wearing so thin.”
The positive feedback didn”t last long as Love criticized Miley and Perry”s music. “The music is so not there. I doubt it”s going to be anything anyone talks about in ten years,” she explained. “Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry, despite all their endless sales and downloads will go the way of Sub Pop”s [Seattle”s grunge group] tad singles, into some sort of oblivion. It”s artless pop at the end of the day.”
She added, “Yeah, I have listened to “Roar” and “We Can”t Stop” and I love “Wrecking Ball” for a guilty pleasure, but these are songs written by men mostly for pop tarts. This is not rock “n” roll. Soul and rock “n” roll endure, pop does not, that”s why it”s called pop. It goes pop like a bubble, and then it”s just a funny “do you remember when” memory. If you can”t start a trend, you”re screw. Good luck on ripping off Katy Perry”s boobs.”
