    The Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde, 63, is a rock icon. She paved the way for women in rock. Now, she has done an interview and said that too many pop singers are selling sex instead of music, thus likening some of these ladies to porn stars.

    According to WENN, Hynde said, "There's a definite division of what I'd call porn stars trying to make records, and then musicians. If you go and see Kate Bush, you'll see a real musician. She takes care of business the way she wants. If a girl walks on stage and starts playing like Jimi Hendrix, believe me, no one will be asking her to take her clothes off. If anyone says, 'I have to do this because my record company told me,' that's a lie. The artist is in control of what they're doing. You can always tell anyone to fuck off. If they're under pressure to get their kit off, maybe they should just be making porn films. Maybe they're in the wrong game."

    Ouch, ouch, ouch! Likening the pop stars to porn stars may be harsh…

    …but we get her sentiment and see both sides of the story. It's not about selling your body. It's selling your art. Therein lies a long-discussed argument.

    What do you think of Chrissie Hynde's comments? Do you agree? Or is she out of line? Do you have Chrissie's new album, Stockholm?
