WTF?! More Shade For Katy Perry From Robyn!

| Filed under: Music MinuteRobynKaty PerryMarina and The Diamonds

Uh-oh! This certainly isn't going to help matters!

We reported earlier in the week that Robyn, who is scheduled to go on tour alongside Marina & The Diamonds for Katy Perry's California Dreams Tour, responded oddly when asked if she enjoyed the Teenage Dream singer's music - and now we're shocked to discover that this is NOT the first time this has happened!

Check out this clip (above) of her dodging the very same question from back in November!

WTF?! What gives, bb?!

Seeing as you've agreed to open for her, we think the world deserves a little bit of an explanation!

Thoughts??

    well obviously she doesn't like her music. She is just doing it for wider exposure, I don't blame her. Just because you tour with someone doesn't mean you have to like their music.



  2. 2

    Very simple: Katy Perry is crap. Robyn is good.

    Thank you.



  3. 3

    She can open for her and not like her music. She's entitle to her opinion on what kind of music she likes, lets face it but Perry's music isn't that great….:/



  4. 4

    Well how can you be surprised? Robyn is an artist as in art. Katy Perry has cheap produced songs. even if they are fun and catchy. You can't expect someone like Robyn to listen to that kind of music. Or else she wouldn't be Robyn and create her type of music.

    ummm…well…katy perry's music is BAD!



  6. 6

    Uh ohz.



  7. 7

    if you don't like her music then don't go on tour with her.



  8. 8

    Mmmmmm, Robyn is not that good either. It's just generic, faceless synth-pop. At least KP is cute and fun. Don't bite that hand the feeds you, you dumb blonde bitch.

    Their music isn't even on the same level or even shares the same fanbase. Robyn is just doing it to expand her audience, but it looks like she feels that she's selling out in order to do so. It's also possible Robyn agreed to do it w/o knowing much about KP - I mean, before Calif Girls, Katie wasn't that much of a household name and Robyn's been touring, making music, taking care of her child and may not have come accross her. Now that she's figured out who she is, she's all like 'wtf did I sign up for'? It's also possible one of her reps signed her on to do it w/o checking with Robyn. It's ALSO possible that Robyn is getting some publicity by thumbing her nose at her and when she gets the boot, she'll look like a hero.



  10. 10

    Well Perez I do not want to have to make your bad comments for you. Seeing as you love bad pop music and Katy Perry can not sing live at all. I feel the need to be honest. You shed your love for Robyn over all of your live posts. I have been able to get listen to, love and respect her music since you have posted it. As for your friend Katy Perry, sorry but she is so so so so bad. Her lyrics and melody and just all of it are awful. You have ceased being an ass to people but it is sad you will only endorse people you like that are talent less. MUSIC FOR LIFE. SHE IS SO BAD LIVE and you know it.



  11. 11

    Maybe because Katy Perry is terrible, can't sing without autotune, and has created some of the most obnoxious music of the last 30 years.



  12. 12

    Why cant she just answer straight?? I love her, but she's full of bullshit when it coms to answering questions. STRAIGHT TO THE POINT BITCH! :)



  13. 13

    Going on tour with Katy Perry doesn't mean she has to like her music. It just means she knows that it's a good gig for MASSIVE exposure.



  14. 14

    quit trying to cause drama……



  15. 15

    she didn't dodge the question… she lied to be polite lol.
    katy perry isn't all that you know. the sooner you learn that perez the better :S



  16. 16

    Robyn has no grace. What an idiot.



  17. 17

    I respect her for not being a brown noser and acting like she enjoys shit music



  18. 18

    That's awesome, because Katy Perry is the total shits, her music is bad and she looks retarded all the time because her eyes look like they don't focus

  19. mw says – reply to this


    19

    be loyal to robyn perez! she is the one with talent!



  20. 20

    It's called being your own person. She doesn't HAVE to like Katy Perry's music and she doesn't have to lie about likeing it either. People have their own opinions and tastes in music..I think she handled it well; she wasn't being rude but she wasn't gonna lie either. Get over it.



  21. 21

    Wow. I really don't like Robyn. She has an amazing voice for R&B (check out her old stuff) and her pop voice is OK, but annoying. I listened to her album Robyn and it's the same generic pop crap as Katy Perry's.

    The only difference between Katy and Robyn is that Katy manages to be fun. Homegirl needs to learn about tact. Now when she opens for Katy, she's gonna get booed off the stage. Way to go.

    Marina and the Diamonds is better than both of them, she's going to make it big someday - like Florence + the Machine is doing now.

    Katy Perry has catchy tracks, but can't sing for sh*t live. Robyn has, to be completely honest, also got A LOT of generic Euro-pop songs, though she can sing really good live. But don't bite the hand that offers you free publicity, girl. Just lie the next time… it's not that difficult.



  23. 23

    she has better taste in music than you…that's the explanation….



  24. 24

    Ummm…does everyone have to love everyone's music? I dont love Lady Gaga, but if she asked me to go on tour with her….I obviously would. With my tambourine.



  25. 25

    at least she's honest! I don't like Katy Perry's music either.



  26. 26

    Katy Perry blows. Period.



  27. 27

    Shyt, she doesn't own anyone anything, except a concert for her fans that buy tickets. Don't be so freakin' arrogant. How dare you say that she owes anybody anything. If she doesn't want to call Katey Perry the no-talent skank that she is, then you have no right to obligate her to do so. Not even a nice try……more like a lame arrogance.



  28. 28

    after seeing this, i love Robyn even more!
    katy perry was tolerable 2 years ago…nowadays
    not-so-much. her "music" and um " vocals "
    are CRAP! Robyn seems like she reluctantly
    is on tour with the zit-girl and her sad tour.
    Robyn's made great music for over a decade now,
    while katy perry is too busy trying to remain relevent
    by looking and acting like a bafoon. (just like you Mario)



  29. 29

    well it probably wasn't her idea to go on tour with her. Tours are usually put together by management, artists/bands typically don't have much to do with it. I know of a lot of tours where they not only didn't care for the other artist but never even saw or interacted together. It's all marketing



  30. 30

    I like a couple of Katy Perry's songs, but she does suck. Can't sing for shit !



  31. 31

    a jobs a job. katy sux so i don"t blame her. would it be better if she lied to people? is she going out of her way to talk trash?



  32. 32

    Are you retarded, Robyn? You are a no-name D-lister who is being handed the opportunity of a lifetime. Shut your mouth and take advantage of an excellent opportunity. Idiot!



  33. 33

    I would say Marina is better than Robin. I would have more respect for Robin if she didn't agree to join the tour. Hitching a ride on to katy's popularity then not answering diplomatically just makes her look like a user.



  34. 34

    Katy Perry sucks. All her songs are over played and she's just a wanna be cat woman in her spandex tight jump suits.



  35. 35

    Again, I say…Robyn or actually ROBIN hasn't been relevant since 1997. Thank you!



  36. 36

    Why is this shocking at all? Do people actually like Katy Perry?



  37. 37

    Katy shouldBE OPENING FOR ROBIN >>>KATY SUCKS



  38. 38

    i can understand not liking katy perry's music…but if you are opening for her, i mean…what's the point of doing that? just say yes. who cares. does it really matter if you tell the truth in that instance?
    and to be fair…when robyn came out she was not as alterna-pop as she is now. 'show me love'….i mean she was actually much more in the realm of the katy perry of her day…very mainstream stuff. i loved 'show me love' - i mean, i was like 9 at the time..so i'm not sure if i would like it if it came out now, but i did love it at the time. just saying, although her music is different now…her start was much more similar to katy perry's direction.



  39. 39

    I think it's lame that she won't throw Katy Perry a bone. Sure, she doesn't have to like her stuff, but she could at least acknowledge her as a fellow artist. There are a lot more people who enjoy Katy's stuff than Robyn's at this point in time and to throw shade at someone who has been NOTHING but sweet and respectful, even going as far as to give you the opportunity to open for them, is SO lame. She could tell a white lie. "She has catchy music," for example, would be a lot better than just dodging the question like your taking the high road or something. I'm just completely turned off by that behavior.



  40. 40

    i think that you can't really compare robyn and katy.
    coz they're two different artists in two different genres.
    it's like comparing the beatles to britney spears.



  41. 41

    I think she may be insulted. There she is on an interview about being on tour with Katy Perry. One would think they would want to know about her new music not her appreciation of Katy Perry's music! It's just rude in my opinion…



  42. 42

    she does not like her. who gives a shit



  43. 43

    Cuz Perez is kiss ass to Katy Perry. This is non sense you making it so awkward. So what she doesn't like Katy Perry music. It's true she can't sing. auto tune voice dumb ass.



  44. 44

    Ungrateful and unattractive bleach blonde should tour by herself.



  45. 45

    Re: thecouvman
    "Shut your mouth and take advantage of an excellent opportunity. Idiot!"
    Shut her mouth? Isn't that what she has been doing? She hasn't said a word about her!



  46. 46

    I love Robyn she has many great songs and is a true Arturo!
    Kate Perry has one good song and molested Elmo…allegedly.



  47. 47

    I never liked Robyn before, but now I do! I cannot stand Katy Perry! She annoys the heck out of me. Why give Robyn a hard tme for not being fake and pretending to like someone when they don't?



  48. 48

    Robyn is old and washed up. Katy Perry might not be the best songstress but at least she's relevant.



  49. 49

    Katy Perry is not even the one who decides who opens, are the people who work with her and do her promotion. Maybe Perry doesnt even like Robyn music either lol who knows



  50. 50

    hahaha! i love robyn!
    and wtf, she doesn't have to be grateful for this "opportunity"!
    she is a superstar in europe, so why should she care if some retarded people who actually like kp (ughhhhhhhhh!) are insulted?
    GO ROBYN



  51. 51

    if u dont like her stay off the fucking tour

    sometimes we have to pretend to like people she says she wants to get somewhere but then acts like she hates katy that would be why shes not getting anywhere .. wrong answer fucface



  52. 52

    Embarrasing! Im Swedish and embarrased… Where are your manners R????
    Pinsamt



  53. 53

    is there some kind of rule that the opening band/singer/whatever has to be a fan of the main act?! pretty sure there isn't. robyn is probably getting paid a hefty price for opening katy perry and it gives her a chance to expose a whole new fan base to her music. just because robyn is opening for kp doesn't mean they have to be bff and it doesn't mean robyn has to kiss her ass.



  54. 54

    and to the person who said that robyn should show katy some respect, you're an idiot. i think the way robyn handles the questions about katy is pretty mature. she could just come right out and say "she's crap and i don't like her music" but she doesn't. she could lie and be like "oh she's so great!!" even though she doesn't really feel that way but she doesn't. she politely declines answering the question and forces the interviewers to move on to a different subject.



  55. 55

    Honestly, Robyn sucks! She's nothing, but auto tune.. Her talent is to look weird and act it out.



  56. 56

    Robyn is soooo ugly!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't want to sit at a concert and have to watch her ugly mug.



  57. 57

    the world doesnt deserve any explanations, ppl is entitles to not answer paparazzis questions! asshole



  58. 58

    Should she have to lie? Robyn can like Katy but not her music. You're putting your friend on the spot.



  59. 59

    Oh,perez let it go!What do you want her to say:that Katy Pary have no voice or tatent?btw Katy Perry sucks.

  60. MUNON says – reply to this


    60

    That is the only polite way to answer that. They are going to work together, so there is no need to say on camera: "Katty Perry sucks, her music is horrible and she cannot sing." So, its better to avoid the obvious.



  61. 61

    Re: 7tizz – You must have missed the phenomenon that was "I Kissed a Girl".



  62. 62

    Robyn should have said something completely effing phoney — maybe "tactfully" dodging the actual question — like, "Oh, you know … I think Katy Perry is an awesome person." Then the Katy-hards will happily skip off and cluck about how "fake" some other starlette is.



  63. 63

    homage?



  64. 64

    she doesn't fucking like her. get the fuck over it. omg perez and you really this pathetic?? she bases her music on emotion and cool beats and funky sounds. katy tits bases her on going "boom boom boom, moon moon moon" licking lollies putttin whipped cream on her tits (don't forget the cherry on top) and walking around in spandex desperately trying to keep her piece of human trash of a husband from straying.



  65. 65

    The first poster got it. It's pretty simple. Katy Perry is awful and pretty talentless. Her music is the epitome of factory made, generic, mass produced pop music. And Robyn just wants to exploit her dumb audience, who clearly has no discriminating taste, for more exposure. Good for her.



  66. 66

    Nice way to get attention, because I didn't know who Robyn was until now.



  67. 67

    Re: the real carmen – yeah i know. why can't she just be like all the other mind-numblingly fake smiley sychophants in the music business. ass.

  68. Low says – reply to this


    68

    If it was me I would NEVER have anybody open for me that does not care for my music.

    I would drop her ASAP.



  69. 69

    Re: thecouvman – Robyn has managed to have some sold out concerts of her own. What an ignorant post. Just because she isn't big in your neck of the woods (I'm thinking US), doesn't mean she isn't big anywhere else. She's been nominated for Grammat's, opened some of Madonna's Sticky and Sweet concerts.. yeah, she is SO D-list…



  70. 70

    Re: Moogle80 – or Grammy's… Grammat's ha! Sounds like Estonia's equivalent :)



  71. 71

    I hate Katy Perry but for everyone calling her music generic and over-produced or whatever… have you not heard Robyn's music? WTF… If it were someone cool I could at least see the point but Robyn blows.

    And touring with someone is usually considered a huge break from the main artist. You don't need to kiss-ass and pretend to like their music but you owe them some respect. It's like publicly insulting your boss.



  72. 72

    She didnt comment cause Katy perry sucks big dick. Robyn has talent and makes REAL music and can sing! Robyn has been around way longer then Katy Perry and is HUGE in the UK. If you know anything about music you would know who Robyn is. Katy Perry is a mutt with googley eyes and saggy tits. She has NOOOO talent she cant sing and makes garbage songs. She should go back to making Christian music so we dont have to see her or listen to her crap anymore…



  73. 73

    PH and/or the world doesn't deserve an explanation from her. It's business; plain and simple. She doesn't have to like who she's opening for. who cares.



  74. 74

    she's clearly just using katy perry to get her name out there more
    and not only is robyn talented, she has good taste. katy perry's not half the artist that robyn is

  75. Jen83 says – reply to this


    75

    Ungrateful bitch…. I hope katie gets a hold of this info and boots her.



  76. 76

    Big news…not. Robyn is way more better than shitty Perry.. :)



  77. 77

    i'm glad most of you see this: robyn has NO reason to defend herself. people give her crap for not answering the damn question, but she's get crap for answering it as well, since i suspect she's not a fan of perry. so she's prob choosing the lesser of 2 evils. leave her alone. and i don't think you have to fawn over someone and their career just to tour with them. it's business.



  78. 78

    It's not about whos the better artist, people.. it's the fact that Robyn was so god damn rude. She coulda just had some manners and been polite.



  79. 79

    Katy Perry suck she can't sing for shit and robyn is to nice to say so. Robyn is an artist katy is just a talentless, studio bimbo.



  80. 80

    I've always liked Robin and it actually adds to her cred that she (like me) doesn't care for that talentless clown Katy.



  81. 81

    really perez? do you need to stir the pot between two singers you *allegedly* like? and besides, no one with ears would actually include robyn and katy perry in the same sentence. robyn is an actual artist. katy is a commercial gimmick.



  82. 82

    I hope she gets thrown off the tour and the paycheck revoked. Supporting someone should mean just that. Robyn should have more dignity than obviously compromising her integrity just for a paycheck. She is insulting Katy's fans and I'm not one of them but I admire that she has worked hard to get where she is and that shouldn't be taken away from her by someone who obviously thinks they are lowering themselves to be appearing in the same bill. Do you own tour then Robyn instead of riding other peoples coat tails, simple.



  83. 83

    Well if she doesn't like her she doesn't like her, no big deal.



  84. 84

    Re: Eclipseheart – Actually she was very polite… she wasnt rude at all….



  85. 85

    Robyn is sweet.
    Who cares if she is not a Katy Perry's fan. Robyn is not popular outside sweden, she is just the alternative pop option outside. Its a matter of taste and thats all. No big deal, she is not being forced. She didnt succumb the industry trends herself, obviously she aint gonna dig the thing. I like both of them.



  86. 86

    Katy Perry cant sing..what's there to like? Cant blame Robyn for dodging that, just a poor attempt to keep things civil and not bashing Perry publicly.
