“In all fairness, Madonna was asked to do this and she was friends with Prince but you also have to think about it’s really the Billboard Awards, they think about who is hot and popular. They’re not gonna call up Chaka Khan and re-put together The Time and Sheila E. because they’re not relevant right now.”
Uh, Madonna’s still “relevant”? Her latest album, Rebel Heart, has not even gone gold in the U.S. in the year since its release.
For that matter, what makes Linda Perry “relevant”? Just because she co-wrote and produced a bonus track on the Target edition of Adele’s 25?
