Oop! Kelis Says ‘Katy Perry Is Crap’

Kid Fury September 8, 2011 Is That So?, Oop!, You Mad? 24 Comments

The pop music shade continues and my undergarments are tightening with glee!

Kelis reportedly told Britain’s Daily Star, “Katy Perry is crap. It’s just poor pop. Her name might be on her stuff but that doesn’t mean it’s any good.”

I don’t know how I feel about the validity of this quote, and Kelis really doesn’t have room for even a shady queef — not after that last album. Katy Perry has five number one singles from Teenage Dream alone. Thoughts?

    Kelis’s last album was very good, but it was a head of the time. When she put out her album the dance-pop movement was still very much in Europe and hadn’t crossed to the U.S., and now  that it has you have stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Chris Brown, etc  jumping to the movement. Kelis has always been ahead of the game, and that’s why people don’t get about her, because she isn’t doing what everyone else is doing.

    I agree with Kasandra! Kelis has always been ahead of her time. She was singing over Neptune beats before anyone knew who they were. And I agree with Kelis, Katy Perry is trash. Her music is corny and everything about her is manufactured. Whether she has top ten singles or not!Kelis is still one of my favorites and her music shits on Katy Perry.

    Kelis is doing what they do in politics, fighting up.  You wouldn’t see her trying to come for Ciara or Keri Hilson, they’re right at the kids table with her ass.  She has to go for the easiest target at the adult table.  Kelis’ last album was like dukey on the street.  It just sat there, stankin’.  She’s just mad that Katy’s eating and she’s still waiting to get served.

    I mean…I listen to Katy…It’s good for singing along to when you’re in the car with your friends. I’m not listening to it to find the meaning to life or anything.

    Also she should listen to “Peacock” from Teenage Dream. That song’s just awesome.

    Katy Perry IS crap and Kelis is a much better artist, but as always people will confuse record sales for talent.

    I woudln’t be so quick to trash talk Kelis. I’ll admist, I’m a huge fan of hers. That woman makes some amazing music and stays doing shows. Do I think she should call Katy Perry crap, no. I hate it when my favs fight. I need them to make up and make a record together.

    I forgot Kelis existed

    I’m Katy Perry gives no fucks what Kelis thinks of her music. Didn’t Teenage Dream tie her with MJ for the most #1′s off a single album?

    ok so here’s what i think…i loved kelis. (note the past tense.) i dont kno WHAT that nasir jones dick did to ol’ girl but uh…yea. ima need for her to quit cus i see this as just merely a ploy to drag her ass from the bottomless pit irrelevance. and no im not a katy perry fan, not even in the least bit. do i bump E.T. every now & again? u bet ur ass i do. but i dont like katy, nor do i DISLIKE her. kelis better have a good reason for making sideways remarks. and no, a flop-worthy album doesnt count as a good reason. (so u better bring it bitch!) kelis just may very well be a better artist, but unfortunately for kelis, katy perry is just way more marketable to a wider demographic on a worldwide scale. marketability equals money. fuck having real talent. sad but true. *shrugs*

  • insaneWNDRLND

    Hopefully the music Gods (Erykah Badu, Michael Jackson, etc.) take heed to what Kelis is saying and give Katy Perry (her shit’s WEAK!) the TRUE DEATH. Sounds plausible to me.  

  • babywiggles

    true death for everyone involved the last half decent song my Kelis put out was Bossy. I hope she understands she not in the position to through shade

  • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare

    If Kelis did in fact say this, when did she lie?

  • Wilson_f15

    I wonder why people always say you are ahead of your time when no one buys or listens to your music? If the music was good it wouldn’t matter when it came out people would flock to it gradually and I still don’t see people checking for anything kelis has made since her first single( or maybe just me). I love if you don’t sell record numbers you are an “artist” maybe shes not an artist maybe she just sucks.

  • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare

    Pardon me but, first, this:Michael Jackson1. I Just Can’t Stop Loving You
    2. Bad
    3. The Way You Make Me Feel
    4. Man in the Mirror
    5. Dirty DianaHer1. California Gurls
    2. Teenage Dream
    3. Firework
    4. E.T.
    5. Last Friday NightSecondly, if you are slavish about sales this comparison will mean nothing to you and, thus, speaking about the difference between art and sales will only send you into convulsions while screaming that “we are only hating on Katy Perry.” By the way, you will look adorable in your straight jacket as you scream this, I’m sure.Now, if you don’t like Kelis- cool. However, her song AND video for “Get Along With You” shits on everything, ARTISTICALLY, that Katy Perry will ever produce.  If you are convinced otherwise, continue to lap up her 5 number #1 singles as seen above.  I don’t care.*Blasts Guilty*

  • sallyone

    Kelis use to b my girl..now I no longer like her…1st she tried to fucked over NAS (my Husband) and now she talking ish about my girl Katy!!!!  Sorry but I like Katy and her music..its just feel good music & I dont appropriate her calling it crap!!!

  • sallyone

    Kelis is a non mutha fucking factor!!!!!

  • mario

    i used to like you. but you have been giving me uptight queen barrista these past few months

  • http://twitter.com/WiddleMonstaMMI ♣A Born Technician♣

    Well, was she lying? None of ya’ll fucked with Katy when she was gospel, now that shes jumping on the Euro-pop wave (Which Kelis has been on since her Wonderland album) She has gained fame. Kelis is and will always be one of THE MOST underrated talents of our generation, so YES her comment has validity. Regardless what people say, Kelis’ words and opinion still hold weight and if you don’t like it oh well, you’re probably a fan of this crap-o-la that you love to call MUSIC these days…

  • Brittany

    Katy Perry is crap and Kelis ain’t been relevant since she married Nas. NEXT!!!

  • Ari

    what does her having 5 number ones mean? it still doesnt mean her music is any good (Not saying its bad either) it just means that ppl supported it. and we all know ppl support stupidity. so having so many singles on so many charts means absolutely nothing in the determining on whether the artists music is any good

  • Alicia Collins

    Katy is a pop artist. Kelis is not. There is nothing wrong with working the indie circuit. 

  • Kowinn

    I think everyone is missing the issue Kelis ain’t had a hit in a year (give or take) a few months and ton of days and when you come for someone who is not on your level or aimed at your target demographic (who exactly?), well bitch basically your nothing but a salty sea dog. Where was this blunt attitude when Gaga was strutting her upside down smile and weird outfits (which you are now trying to replicate) or when Rihanna was singing emo songs about how she should have kicked Yellow cakes ass before the police got him.

     those who are defending her or saying she has a point are nothing but her salty hags that are feeding her lies and haven’t supported her since. your all only defending her because she was going through that shit with nas and now she’s a no better then a basic baby mama with minimal star power and access to a studio. Bitch bye
