La Roux star criticises state of current pop scene

La Roux’s Elly Jackson yesterday took to Twitter to air her grievances over the state of today’s chart music.

The 24-year-old, who is currently working on the follow-up to 2009’s self-titled debut, started a debate when she posted a message on the social networking site about Carly Jae Repsen’s current number one single.

She said: "Call me maybe" is that a lyric?? I can't tell who anyone on the radio Is anymore its just noise. Sorry but where has all the music gone?

“I am perfectly aware I will be slated for saying that but I'm genuinely worried for music.”

Responding to several of her followers’ comments about her remarks, she went onto criticise the likes of The Black Eyed Peas and Steps, before adding:

“This Is not about what I or any of you think about my music. Its about an industry that is dying and that we are letting it die.

“I've loved all your responses by the way. nice to hear the passion even if you do hate me. #bringbackthepunks"
