Moby is responding to critical comments sent his way by fans on Britney Spears on Twitter. The artist who famously feuded with Eminem told Spinner that “music” is the wrong word to describe what chart topping artists like Britney Spears or Ke$ha are putting out… or that’s how Spinner put it, his quote never mentioned an artist by name. “It’s fun, but I don’t think of it as music,” he contended. “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.” Moby tells followers (@thelittleidiot):
I think it’s odd when people get so angry with someone they’ve never met. Aren’t there better hobbies than hating complete strangers?
Dear Britney fans, I have nothing against your queen. I think she’s like an interesting character from a Tennessee Williams play. Thanks.
It must be a slow day in the land of gossip news when my facile opinions get so much attention. I hope that everyone has a nice weekend.
