Moby: Britney’s Music Isn’t Music



Singer Moby is drinking some Britney Haterade! First he called her a broken shell, now he's saying he doesn't consider Britney's work as music.

quote:

"It's fun, but I don't think of it as music," he tells Spinner.com. "It's manufactured. I appreciate it as 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," he says. "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."

"It's advertising for ringtones."


Interesting, so I guess "Early Mornin,'" the song you produced for Britney on "In The Zone," isn't music!

Besides, who is he to say her music doesn't provide an emotional connection to her fans? Guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Douche!
