You know something, he makes a REALLY good point!! While sitting down for an interview with London Evening Standard, iconic singer Lionel Richie opened up about the state of music today, and took aim at Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus in the process. He said:

"The beautiful part of where we were - we had shock value. But what came with shock value was hit after hit after hit. Madonna was outrageous - but she had a catalogue of music that was unbelievable."

"At the end of all the theatrics with Michael (Jackson), he had nothing but the most fabulous catalogue. Now, we've got a lot of theatrics... but where's the song that is going to stick around forever?... Twenty years from now, let's take anybody - where's the body of work? I'm going to judge you not by your popularity but by your longevity, your staying records. I'm thinking about Miley, Justin Bieber.

"We've made amateur music mainstream. There's a difference between a stylist and a singer. Everybody can sing! Go to karaoke, there are some guys seriously singing their asses off! But do they have a unique voice, or distinct voice?"

Is he right? Sure, Justin and Miley have released some catchy songs, and landed quite a few #1's, but will we remember them 20 years from now? What do you guys think of what Lionel said?
