Songwriter Linda Perry Defends Xtina

linda perry defends xtina

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!

    Too bad you could never offer those words of encouragement and, instead, chose to ridiculed her and calling her names such as Floptina and Clonetina, because you felt she was copying Gaga. Yet Gaga gets slaughtered by the media for sounding too much like Madonna and you call it inspiration. People like you, Mario, are the problem.

    Re: Andy27 – Tru dat! "Bionic" was actually an AWESOME album. At first listen, I was thrown back with some of the other tracks. But this was really Christina's return to pop music with an "electronica" vibe. Christina rocks and so does "Bionic".

    OH PULEEEZ, THIS LINDA PERRY IS A KISS ASS FOR REAL!! GIVE THAT SPEECH TO HER RECORD LABEL AND SEE IF THEY "DONT CARE". YOU'RE DAMN FUCKING RIGHT SHE CARES AND HER LABEL WILL MAKE HER KNOWN THEY CARE. XTINA WATCH HER MOUTH CAUSE BITCH WILL BE WITHOUT A LABEL SOON ENUFF!! TRUTH… AS FOR WHY PEEPS HATE ON FLOPTINA, SHE'S KNOWN TO HAVE A BITCHY TEMPER TANTRUM DIVA LIKE ATTITUDE. IN FACT, SHE'S THE MOST HATED SINGER AS POINTED OUT FROM OTHER CELEBS WHO HAD RUN-INS WITH THE BITCH. THERE'S A WHOLE LENGTHY YOUTUBE VID ON QUOTES AND AUDIO FROM OTHER CELEBS ON FLOPTINA'S ATTITUDE. NOW IMAGINE HOW SHE TREATS REGULAR FOLK. BITCH GET REALZ!!

    fuck the record. what about stop with that ridiculous plastic sex doll hair and the whore lipstick???? i remember when Christina started singing, she was absolutely, insanely stunning. now she looks like a cheap whore, honestly. less is more Christina, this overconfident plastic visual sucks!

    Re: xcalibur – You're the kind of person who believes everything the read in the magazines. Bitch please, if you wanna call somebody a flop, bitch, kiss-ass etc. at least spell it right. In the words of Linda Perry - "She definitely doesn’t care — and that is a fact.". If she cared about poor little irrelevant haters bitching through the internet, she wouldn't even be in the business so long. Get a clue, and stay mad (: Kthnxbai.

    I don't know if that was much of a compliment to say she doesn't care. I'm sure she cares what her fans think. She could have said she doesn't need critical acclaim or record sales as long as she loves what she's doing and believes in herself or something like that. Beautiful was a great song though. Maybe Perry was hinting that if she cares she should go back to that kind of stuff.

    The reason her album didn't do well is because it sucked. No if's, and's, or but's about it. If it was a good album it would have sold. Common sense is what we all need to use nowadays. Common sense.

    WASHINGTON  — A Pentagon document classifies homosexuality as a mental disorder, decades after mental health experts abandoned that position.
    The document outlines retirement or other discharge policies for service members with physical disabilities, and in a section on defects lists homosexuality alongside mental retardation and personality disorders.

    How does it feel to be a fucking lunatic, Perez….and all you other homos?



  10. 10

    eh, Perry's talented but she says and does what she thinks will make her a "shinier star" - I take what she says with a grain of salt……….



  11. 11

    GOD I HOPE SHE STANDS BY HET "ROCK ALBUM" COMMENT :D



  12. 12

    So, to put it in a nutshell Christina doesn't care if she disappoints her fans? What a compliment…
    And about the rock record, if Christina wants to be successful ever again, taht's the very last thing to do, she's a popact, she'd better stick to that.



  13. 13

    "She definitely doesn’t care — and that is a fact." - and this is a good thing?



  14. 14

    Congrats to Andy27 for using the right words!

    And I really like Bionic!



  15. 15

    Christina is my favorite artist but the truth is Bionic was a horrible album. "You Lost Me" and "I Am" were the only good songs. The rest was complete shit.



  16. 16

    Re: alexie silver – So true! She used to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Now she looks like a fatter (and paler) version of Snooki with clown makeup.



  17. 17

    It's clearly stated in the quote by Miz Perry that Xtina doesn't care about what the CRITICS say, nowhere in the quote above does she say Xtina doesn't care about her fans …so where are people getting that from?

    When Britney's album flopped after her break down, everyone just felt sorry for her. But with Christina, you're making it seem like shes a talentless nobody and we know that's not the case. Get over it.



  19. 19

    you are full of shit.



  20. 20

    its apparent to me the bitch doesnt care.she doesn't care about looking good either



  21. 21

    funny how you failed to copy the bit where linda said something about her predicting that bionic and back to basics wouldnt be huge commercial successes



  22. 22

    Re: AshNrj – hehe, i wonder where you got your information about her being nice thus taking on her side//



  23. 23

    She's played around a lot and tried to put her spin on a lot of genres. I may not have been the smartest career move judging by her seeming to fade from the spotlight since "Stripped." Yet at the same time many fans appreciate her versatility, as do I for the most part (Back 2 Basic wasn't really "throwback" and maybe Bionic wasn't really "futuristic, but it was her own spin and I liked most of the songs). Now for a rock album - not sure if I can imagine an entire rock album by her but it might be interesting. I'm thinking along the lines of "Fighter?" I'm anxious to see if this will really come about.



  24. 24

    The fact that Christina does not care is the reason for her lack of success. SHe has always done what she wanted and never took the time to find her own personal sound. First she was pop, then she was hip-hop, then she was jazz, THEN she was futuristic NOW she wants to do rock….She doesn't know her genre of music so she keeps doing her own thing and it doesn't sound good with her voice. Her voice is phenomenal but rather than choosing to show case it she tries to fit herself into every genre of music so i guess she can say she has done it all. That is why someone more mediocre like Britney has become so famous, she has always stayed true to her SOUND she knows what she can sing and what she cant and she sticks to it.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – how does it feel to know you wasted your time looking up info on "homos" and then taking the time to post it on a "homo" bloggers site that a lot of "homo" people read, u even took the time to set up an account, just so people, like myself would comment. U sure do have love for the "homos" :) April Fools

    Re: mmduvall
    It is never a wast of time to tell homos some words of wisdom :)

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – F*ck off, Victoria Jackson.



  28. 28

    linda meant that christina doesnt care about the critics, not her fans.
    i agree that the current look is just awful on christina. she is absolutely stunning without the heavy make up and extra weight. she needs to get it right.

    Re: buggadaboo – you know how stupid your logic sounds? So…the only music that sells well is good music? & if music doesn't break records that means it sucks? & horrible music NEVER sells? It sells well, must be good! Go listen to Justin Bieber & buy another copy of "born this way", cause your're obviously a moron. Support whatever the gossip blogs tell you is good & hate whatever it tells you is bad. what a fail attempt at "COMMON SENSE"

    I don't know why she gets put down either. I like Bionic, I think its better than Femme Fatale, to be honest. Xtina has always had the most talent and has had to work twice as hard as the other pop stars and still gets undermined, I don't really understand it. I hope this THe Voice show works on her public persona a bit so maybe people will see the good side of her…

    Re: IVIV – Truth.

    Re: Bibety Bobety Boo – You pulled that out of your ass. Besides your beloved jesus was a homo and if he wasn't he was doing Mary M. and had a child named sara so suck on that you beleifs are a lie.



  34. 34

    Bionic is an amazing album. I don't know what she could have done differently to have better sales, but the music is great.



  35. 35

    doesnt this girl own a mirror? cant she see that she is morphing into hatchet face?



  36. 36

    the shit is incomplete u ass*
