“I think Madonna, especially in the beginning of her career when she was laying the foundation, was evolving every single time and giving a new visual and a new idea to the public. She kept everybody interested because you never knew what she was going to do next, but whatever she delivered was a solid product. I just hope to be the same. I hope to continually make people interested and hopefully in 10 years look back and have written songs that have become timeless.”
Despite how ridiculous Madonna is, it’s not hard to see why a newer singer like Katy Perry would want to be like her. Madonna had her first hit single when she was 24, and here she is, touring around the world and exposing her no-no zones at 53. She’s out of her mind, but she’s still a superstar.
But does Katy Perry have a chance of enjoying a similar career? I really, really don’t think so. I mean, can you see Katy Perry releasing albums thirty years from now? A 57-year-old Katy Perry strutting around, singing “I Kissed A Girl” while millions of people went wild over her? Does she really have that sort of staying power?
