From Katy Perry to Chris Brown, did these critics go too far?

Katy Perry may be one of the most successful female artists of all time, movie critics aren't as enamored with the "Teenage Dream" singer as music writers -- Top 40 radio listeners -- are. Her film debut, "Katy Perry: Part of Me," has been receiving less-than-stellar reviews.

The concert movie has only garnered a Metacritic score of 57, with many critics commenting on the one-sided nature of the film, which just so happened to be produced by the popstar herself. "[It] isn't so much a movie as a canny, inoffensive slice of brand management and marketing," wrote The Austin Chronicle's Marc Savlov.

However, at the end of the day, at least Perry's smash hit sophomore album, Teenage Dream, fared better than Chris Brown's latest -- and brutally reviewed -- studio LP, Fortune. "Fortune is the kind of record that will please Brown's many deluded female fans, but we cannot with good conscience give it a single star," wrote musicOMH.com's Mic Wright.

But can these harsh critiques all be right? Or does everyone just need a few hours alone with the cutest cat on the internet, Lil Bub? Let us know what you think of this week's critical roundup below.
