Elton John said a mouthful when he complained about today’s pop stars as being completely forgettable in the coming decades, and cited Jennifer Lopez in his example. He said they rely too heavily on songwriters for their hits.
John feels that those crooners who can’t write, fail to truly connect with their fans. “Now it’s all about getting on the radio instead of making quality music.
“Nobody’s gonna be singing ‘Jenny from the Block’ in 10 year’s time.”
Not surprisingly and for so many reasons, the notable singer/songwriter, formerly of the eye-catching eyewear, likes Lady Gaga who writes “great songs” proving he ain’t no old fogey hat-ah. Good points, Rocket Man. And you absolutely earned a place to whine about the poor quality of fly-by-nights with your, “When I was young-isms”. Soulful quality work of god given talent counts. — PopSmarts
