Today’s Pop Stars Are Robots

When I saw Katy Perry perform “California Gurls” (seriously, do we need stupid misspellings like that in song titles?) on Saturday Night Live, I remember thinking A) that’s weird, I didn’t know my ears could commit suicide and B) this song sounds a lot like Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA.”

Then I stumbled upon this little video, which plays “California Gurls” at the same time as Ke$ha’s (again with the stupid misspellings) “Tik Tok” and Miley’s “Permanent December.”

Turns out they are exactly the same song. I understand that pop songs follow a specific format and formula, so I don’t fault them for that. But even each Auto-Tuned voice sounds exactly the same. If Christina Aguilera puts out a generic pop song, at least it has her distinct voice on it. Katy Perry already stole her face from Zooey Deschanel. The least she could do is have an original voice.
