Rocker Courtney Love wrote in Style Magazine: ‘Miley Cyrus is not setting any trends. I wonder who decided to put her in white mesh and a pair of pasties and a faux fur (for September’s iHeartRadio festival)? It was dumb and trashy-looking. I liked her attitude and still do, but it’s wearing so thin.
The music is so not there. I doubt it’s going to be anything anyone talks about in ten years, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry, despite all their endless sales and downloads, will go the way of Sub Pop’s (Seattle grunge group) Tad singles, into some sort of oblivion. It’s artless pop at the end of the day.
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. Today, if you can’t start a trend, you’re screwed. Good luck on ripping off Katy Perry’s boobs.’
