Linda Perry

Songwriter Linda Perry has taken issue with Hollywood's definition of "fame" — especially among musicians. She believes it needs to be more about the music — not about the hit singles and the celebrity status. "Is it wrong to want to ask more of my artists? Shouldn't we be doing that? Haven't we lowered the bar a little bit? Now, we're at this place that's breaking my heart. I'm hearing these [current hit] songs, and they're OK, they're good songs. But if you put them up against a great, fantastic song, you easily hear the difference? Is it wrong to ask for more?"
