Kirsten Dunst Thinks Americ Has "Crap" Music

Actress Kirsten Dunst has attacked the American music industry for producing "crap" bands, insisting British artists are better at making "great" songs.

The Spider-Man star - who is currently dating Razorlight rocker Johnny Borrell - reminisces about the music she listened to as a child, from the likes of Guns 'N Roses to the soundtrack of musical Les Misrables, but admits she isn't a fan of the artists which dominate today's charts.

She says, "It's harder to find great music these days. We have Amy Winehouse now, I guess and Bono (of U2). But still our biggest bands back home are crap."

"We don't have a Bob Dylan; where are all the great writers? We don't have enough new great talent. We just don't have the inspirational songs that pop out."

Smart girl, that Kristin.

Everyone knows that most popular US bands right now are nothing more than commercial enterprises.

It's not about expression through music but about making big bucks.

The Pussycat Dolls? Lyrics like "My humps, my humps, my lovely lady lumps"????

If American music is a sign of our times, what sad times we live in.

I can agree with her mostly. Some of the songs are enjoyable even though the meaning isn't exactly great..."Hips Don't Lie" by Shakira. I like that song. I think it is a great work-out song! So I can agree with her on most music, but not all the way becuase I am a big music fan and sometimes they just do songs like that.
