After the VMA’s I’m Disappointed with Katy Perry… not Miley Cyrus

After watching the MTV Video Music Awards I logged onto Facebook and saw my wall full of comments about Miley Cyrus dancing inappropriately. This is coming off the heels of the great “Affleck is Batman” debacle so I knew this was serious. I watched Miley Cyrus dance with Robin Thicke and I wasn’t too shocked by it. It seems like she is going through a fairly common phase that child stars go through where they realize they are no longer a child star and feel pressured to reintroduce themselves as an adult. We’ve seen this with Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes with terrible results. Miley seems to be going through this phase in a relatively healthy way. She wasn’t hurting anybody with that foam finger and right now she’s got a hit song on the radio. She’s 20 years old and although Robin Thicke is 36 and married, that performance was nothing compared to Robin Thicke dancing with completely topless girls in his video for Blurred Lines.

Let’s talk about Katy Perry though, what was disappointing about her performance? Was she being inappropriate? No, not at all. If I had any problem with her outfit, it would be that it was very unflattering. Katy has a great body and she chose to put it into men’s boxing shorts and a poorly fitting sports bra. This could have been planned on purpose to accentuate the portion of her song where she was jumping up and down with a jump rope. I don’t care about that, before I say what bothered me I have to point out something else that got on my nerves before she even performed. Twice before she ended the show it was announced that she would be performing her biggest hit ever… Biggest Hit Ever? I quickly checked the Billboard charts and saw that her single was #2 behind Robin Thicke’s, Blurred Lines. Where did this come from and why would they say that? She’s had tons of #1 singles and this isn’t one of them yet? That’s like saying Avengers 2 is the most profitable movie of all times.

Anyway, here’s what bothered me and it wasn’t so much the performance, it’s the song itself, but it was very evident in this performance. Katy Perry is supposed to be a singer and Roar is the first single off of her new album so why isn’t she doing any singing? She’s talking the words to the verses and then doing a little singing on the chorus. It’s a trend I noticed from another pop star that has been in the game for a long time, Britney Spears. Early in the summer I was hearing a lot of the track with Britney Spears called Scream & Shout. I was floored by that track because Britney Spears literally does not sing a single note. Every line that comes out of her mouth is just her talking. Is Britney Spears the music equivalent of Morgan Freeman? Is her voice so amazing that we’re happy just hearing her speak. The majority of her song Ooh La La off of the Smurfs 2 soundtrack was her talking and I have to say, in my opinion, that is the worst song that I have ever heard. I love pop music and I even enjoy some Britney Spears, but that song is such a blatant, “money-ploy”, fart to the ear drums. So the problem I have with Britney and Katy Perry’s new single is that I don’t think it’s fair to the fans if these pop singers aren’t going to put in the effort to even bother singing on their tracks. There are so many talented artists, like the one’s featured on this site, that are wanting to be heard and deserving attention while current artists are just talking and collecting checks.
