POP music is all about respect for previous generations, it has been confirmed.
After David Bowie received the Brit award for Best Male, younger musicians reaffirmed the importance of looking up to your parents’ or grandparents’ generation, doing what you’re told at all times and treating music as a career.
Katy Perry said: “Older people know better than us young upstarts.
“That’s basically why popular music exists – so teenagers, especially punks, could express deep respect and gratitude for their forebears.
“It’s not like adolescents have ever wanted their own cultural identity or obnoxiously thought they knew best.”
She added: “Drink branded fizzy pop, get up early and work hard.”
