Who sounds crazy now, Perry?

Just before Lollapalooza this year, Farrell, who is one of the founders of the festival, got some people very angry by bashing dance music. As reported by Billboard, his statements didn’t leave much room for misinterpretation:

“I hate EDM. I want to vomit it out of my nostrils,” he said. “I can’t stand what it did to what I love, which is house music, which was meditative, psychedelic. It took you on a journey.”

Now, however, Farrell is claiming that he didn’t mean any negativity at all.

“My comments to the Chicago Tribune were unrestrained and straight from my heart. They were in response to questioning I was asked about EDM,” he said. “Let me state in my own words to you: I love dance music. I fought to bring dance music to Lollapalooza, where there were no acts being booked.”

He should have stuck to his guns or kept his mouth shut.

He added, “They named the area after me because of my passion for dance music and the DJ culture.”
