Moby says Ke$ha, Rihanna, Britney Spears… are not music

First, you have to applaude Moby for his honesty, usually musicians and entertainers kiss each other’s ass, but not this time. According to Spinner, he declared he can’t relate to the music of current chart-toppers like Ke$ha, Rihanna, Britney Spears and the Black Eyed Peas, and he thinks that ‘music’ is the wrong word to describe whatever they are making. He said:

‘It's fun, but I don't think of it as music. 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. 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’.

As much as I agree with his last sentences, it’s not as if Moby were Mozart himself, and what is the definition of music anyway? It’s like food, there’s good food and processed food, Mac Donald’s style. But it still feeds the masses, so it is technically food. Moby is going to pass for a snob elitist by declaring things like this.

And all this may even look more foolish considering he collaborated with Britney Spears on 'Early Mornin' in 2003, for her 2003 album 'In The Zone’.
