Perry Plays Songwriter & Therapist For Christina Aguilera

Q magazine caught up with Linda Perry for an article in their November issue where she talked about hooking up with . Early in 2001, Perry had confronted Aguilera in a Los Angeles nightclub and offered an unsolicited critique of her talent. “I said, Everyone knows you can sing but it’s not convincing emotionally. I think you’re depressed. You should get in touch with it, use it in your songs.” Aguilera shot Perry a who-the-fu**-do-you-think-you-are? look and walked away, but called her about a week later. They convened at Perry’s studio in Burbank, California, where the brutal working practices continued. They sat and talked. Aguilera recalled physical abuse at the hands of her father. She began to cry and asked for the session to be abandoned. “It sounds ghoulish, and she didn’t think she could do it, but… I made her do it in tears. You’ve got to be feeling something before you can create. Some people will reveal nothing and just grind the stuff out. That’s factory work.”

    Cool. two artists together. real music. genuine and raw. the polar opposite of Britney’s entire album. she got some fancy producers to create lame beats which they sent off to her. then she went in the studio on her own and moaned a few cheesetastic lyrics over them, then got ProTools to make her moans sound less out of tune.

    That’s so funny cause Pink thought that Christina was copying her when it was really Linda who wanted to work with her. It’s because Linda wanted to work with someone talented.

    Oh wow this just proves that Pink is just a jealous whore. It was even Tina who first approached Linda.

    ^^Totally agree. Pink’s jealousy is starting to get out of hand in my opinion…She’s bitching about everyone!
