MUSICOLOGY: Seems like La Roux has rubbed the urban scene the wrong way, she has made a comment about the so called grime artist as some what bland.
LA ROUX:George Michael wrote Careless Whisper when he was 17,” she says. “I didn’t see Tinchy Stryder writing a song like that when he was 17, but he still gets the same praise.” She blames a culture that shuns criticism for the drop in standards. “It’s the media,” she says. “Everything is ‘amazing, brilliant’.” Radio DJs, she contends, are “not allowed to slag anything off”, and any negative opinions are kept private.
she later says in the interview……
“She doesn’t want to “start a hate war” with anyone, but she does wish she could be more truthful about other artists. “I can’t possibly like everything – how ridiculous is that?” she says, reasonably enough. But still people recoil when she speaks her mind. “They’re like, ‘Really, Lady Gaga’s not your thing?’ Have you listened to my album? Of course it’s not my thing!”
we are all entitled to our own opinion don’t you think, but bad press is good press, shes got people talking so shes doing something right
