There is some good news and bad news for Katy Perry and Madonna fans. First the good news: Both of them are working on new music. Now, the bad news: Both of them are WORKING TOGETHER. Why does Madonna always have to hook up with younger singers in order to be relevant? You know, she could be relevant just by being Madonna. She is more talented than people give her credit for (but that Prince tribute was ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC). Madonna needs to embrace her age, NOT RUN AWAY FROM IT.
As for Katy Perry, she hasn’t had the best of luck with her new song “Rise.” Actually, Perry has been going downhill for a while. Prism wasn’t half the success Teenage Dream was. Katy Perry may be a nice gal, but she’s limited in the talent department. In a way, Madonna is (once again) lowering herself by working with Perry, just as she did with Britney Spears. Then again, Perry is lowering herself by working with Madonna. We could get another “Pretty Girls” type duet that Britney Spears did with Iggy Azalea.
We hear that Katy Perry was definitely going to release her next album in October. However, because “Rise” hasn’t been quite the hit she expected, Perry needs some “space” before releasing her next single. It’s possible that she’ll release a surprise album in December. Perry would be wise to do so. Christmas season is the biggest time for record sales. And you know she would love to compete with Lady Gaga again.
As for Madonna, she is purposely taking a (much needed) break from the public eye. She’s in the process of changing her image, THANK GOD. Let’s hope she gets a PR manager who can tell her how to use Instagram correctly and to stop trying to act like she’s 30 years younger. Besides recording a duet with Katy Perry, it’s possible Madonna may give some low-key concerts in the next year or so, but a new album is not in the picture anytime soon.
Pop star collaborations are usually a recipe for failure. Is there any way we can somehow stop Madonna and Katy Perry from recording together and assaulting our ears?
