This is so sad.
Beautiful songwriter Linda Perry has come to Xtina's defense, specifically talking about her last album, Bionic, and why it didn't sell very well.
Here are some highlights from a recent interview in which Perry talks about Xtina in a very positive light:
"I think Christina’s awesome and a very talented person. She definitely doesn’t care — and that is a fact. You know how some people say “I don’t care” and they really do? I can tell you that Christina really doesn’t care…. because she learned very early on that critics are critics, people will say whatever they want and it’s up to her to decide what is the truth and what is not. She stands true to what she knows."
"It’s not all about selling a bazillion records to her. She just wants to be able to stand behind it. In the end she did say to me, 'Maybe I did release the Bionic record too soon. Oh well. Now, I wanna make a rock record!' I was like 'Oh, God!' She’s gonna take everybody for a ride. So, ultimately, why she gets put down I don’t know. You’ll never know, I’ll never know, only Christina will ever figure that out and get the answer."
Very nice, encouraging words from Miss Perry.
We're sure Xtina appreciates it!
