Katy B defends Madonna over experiments with dubstep
The Material Girl has faced criticism from some fans of the genre for ‘jumping on the bandwagon,’ but one of its breakout stars said that she admires Madonna’s ability to change with the times:
"The thing is to stay a relevant artist you have to evolve. If she went and made 'Like A Prayer' again it would be a bit boring.
“To stay interesting you have to work with your contemporaries. I think everyone jumps on a bandwagon in some ways, it just depends on what level."
The 23-year-old, whose debut album, 'On A Misson,' was nominated for last year’s Mercury Music Prize, went on to add that Madonna has just as much right as anyone to experiment with dance music:
“When I first started writing songs I was jumping on a bandwagon a bit, even if it was a bit lower down the food chain so to speak.
“I guess Madonna is doing the same thing but just with the whole world looking at her. As long as she’s passionate about it, that’s all that matters. She’s been making dance music before I was even born."
