Courtney Love: Katy Perry's 'Roar' Is 'Not Rock 'N Roll'

Posted: Updated:

Courtney Love is probably not wearing out her copy of Katy Perry's "Prism." In a personal essay for (set to publish next week), Love dinged Perry and Miley Cyrus for producing what she called "artless pop."

"Yeah, I have listened to 'Roar' and 'We Can’t Stop' and I love 'Wrecking Ball' for a guilty pleasure, but these are songs written by men mostly for pop tarts. This is not rock 'n' roll," Love wrote in a quote provided by

That isn't the first time Love has spoken out against two of pop music's current queens. Back in September, Love took time out of a live performance to discuss the pair.

"I liked Miley, frankly. I'm gonna be honest, Katy Perry bores the shit out of me. She's a nice girl, she just really bores me," Love, 49, told the crowd. "You know, that hillbilly Miley Cyrus is sort of punk in a weird sex way."

In October, Love took another shot at Perry, this time knocking her style.

"I liked Katy when she was in a black shag and the shy girl on Glen Ballard’s arm at events," Love said to Fashionista. "She was damaged goods by the time she got to Capitol [Records]. She really worked for it: 'It' being a career I find so boring it's sort of sad, but what she wears is cute and in her own universe."

Here's Perry's "Roar" video, just because that feels appropriate.
