New York nightlife maven and legendary Village Voice columnist Michael Musto might just have ignited a little bitch fight when he wrote that Lady Gaga is the new Roisin Murphy.
"Adele is a healthy Amy Winehouse (unless she's just a food binger instead of a drug abuser)," Musto writes. "And Roísín Murphy is the new Kylie Minogue—a dance-music chantoozie whose Saint at Large concert at Mansion last week brought the queens out in force ( . . . ) Another reflecting-shade wearer, Lady Gaga is the new Roísín Murphy."
I like his little play with female artists, but Roisin Murphy should stay out of the picture. Perhaps Lady Gaga is the new Katy Perry (a one hit wonder), a new Kylie Minogue (forgive me) or perhaps just a colorful knit of existing styles (read this), but our Murphy is in a whole different stratosphere.
