Moby has once again taken a bizarre, sort-of-but-not-really dig at Ms. Britney Spears, by claiming that her music, as well as Ke$ha‘s, shouldn’t be labeled as such!
“It’s fun, but I don’t think of it as music. It’s manufactured. I appreciate it as a pop culture phenomenon and some of the songs I like if I hear them in a shopping mall or something, but it doesn’t function as music for me. Music is something that communicates emotion and integrity in a really interesting, direct way, and when I listen to the pop music you’re describing, it’s hyper-produced corporate product. That isn’t really even a criticism, but I just think calling it music is a misnomer.”
Well, to each his own, we suppose!
But we think it’s pretty unfair to pigeon-hole an entire genre and discredit its ability to express emotion just because of how it’s produced!
We’re sure that there’s a lot of people out there that would listen to what he produces and not consider it music, as well! No need to single anyone out and make those kind of statements!
