Re: Katy Perry to ditch pop for folk music on fourth album

If she couldn't sing the record company would be paying her to write songs for somebody who could.
Except for the fact that she's extremely pretty, in a world where visuals and sex appeal are at least as important as talent in marketing pop music...and have been since at least the 1950s. While there have been exceptions, a record company is as, if not more, likely to put out a pop record by an incredibly telegenic (but mediocre) singer as one with perfect pitch who happens to be plain.

Yes. Aside from being at least as creatively bankrupt as most forms of pop music, it caters to a much more limited audience. Wouldn't be an especially good career move. Folk music, on the other hand... It may not be for everybody, but it's worth a shot. I wish her luck.
Folk is pretty hot right now...
Mumford & Sons, Of Monsters And Men, The Lumineers, Passenger to name a few more recent (pop)folk bands...

Her songwriting is actually what I don't care for. It's serviceable pop with memorable hooks ( damn her!!!!) but there's no depth or growth evident.
That's a good observation. Her singing is okay, not bad but not great, but if she branches out her songwriting then it might be interesting.
Like I said before, she needs to discover her inner Marvin Gaye circa the time he recorded What Going On.

Congrats, as bad as Katy Perry's music is, you've managed to rattle off four bands that are an order of magnitude worse!

That should be interesting. I wonder how it will sound. She's had some good songs (albeit overplayed).

Who said folk singers had to be gifted vocalists anyway? Let her do what she wants. It can't be any less worthwhile to me than anything she's done prior

Re: Katy Perry to ditch pop for folk music on fourth album

I don't listen to pop anymore, Madonna, Lady fucking Gaga, Shakira, Rihanna, Pitbull, Chris Brown, LL Cool J, Vanilla Ice, Taio Cruz, ABBA, Justin Bieber, Radiohead, The Strokes, Blur, Dannii Minogue the whole industry is one giant joke, its the same 3 chords over and over again, some of the grooves, beats and melodies are exactly the same, they are so lazy these days they don't even bother changing the notes. The industry get some half naked teenager to shake their ass on the stage and bang the record company got another hit. Madonna is one of the most notorious sometimes she just rearranges other people's lyrics in cut and paste fashion and call it her own song, and you get painfully unapologetic lip-synching from other like Depeche Mode, Janet Jackson, 50 Cent, R Kelly. I blame the public for putting up with this crap. People like Madonna are the reason we need music critics ripping into these fools, to kill pop and kill the X-factor-Bla Madonna has a history of trying to horn in on credit for work she did not do or deserve credit for. This has been written about in several publications. It is discussed in the Andrew Morton biography about her titled "Madonna."An award winning songwriting partner of Andrew Lloyd Webber complained of her trying to horn in on credit for his song by trying to change a few lyrics. Critic :" So what does Madonna have to say? Unfortunately, not a damn thing.The new age navel gazing is far more obtrusive here than on her last two albums, and it's much more confusing and befuddled" One of my favorites was 90s number KLF featuring country girl singer Tammy Wynette, it had anarcho sex pistols feel, it had drugs, it had African gospel, it had rap youth culture, and it was simple and stupid and a big F-You to the industry, they were one of the few rip off acts to ever make sense before the age of internet and utorrentnapster hipsters. I imagine Katty might be able to play some simple Blues or Country or Folk there is not so much to making that simple stuff. The age of creativity and real music is truly over.

Re: Katy Perry to ditch pop for folk music on fourth album

That reads like "old man yells at cloud" in regards to music. We have a lot of great musicians now from Gaga to One Republic to Adele to The Script and more. While all might not be to your taste, they're undeniably talented. Sure, there are some bad ones out there, but that's always been the case.

It's also the incredibly random assortment of genres and time periods... but yes, absolutely.

Re: Katy Perry to ditch pop for folk music on fourth album

So, the last 40 years of music is a giant joke? For someone who doesn't listen to pop music, TheMasterOfOrion sure knows the names of a lot of performers.
