Robyn @ Bonnaroo
Bonnaroo

Robyn played Bonnaroo this past weekend, where she spoke to MTV News about her current tourmate... Katy Perry. After initially avoiding the question of whether or not she is a fan of Katy Perry's, she told MTV at Bonnaroo:

"I think that girls are always expected to have opinions about each other, and maybe I don't have an opinion about some things, you know? That doesn't mean I have a bad opinion or a good opinion, it's just that, at that point, I never met her," Robyn said. "I didn't know much about her album that was out, and it was hard for me to have an opinion, and that's all. There's some songs that she's made that I think [are] amazing: the pre-chorus in 'Teenage Dream,' I wish I had wrote that. So, it's all good."
Good that things aren't awkward between them, because they're on tour together now. They'll play Nassau Coliseum on June 17 and Prudential Center in NJ on June 19.

The day after the NJ show, Robyn plays a free show at Terminal 5. No, not that Terminal 5. She's playing the Jet Blue one inside JFK Airport on 6/20. Like Jet Blue shows at JFK Airport in the past, the show will be for contest winners and people who happen to be catching a plane.

And speaking of indie-leaning, major label-signed, future Scandinavian female pop stars that are playing in NYC this week and opening shows for Katy Perry (yuck), Oh Land is playing a Northside Festival show at Brooklyn Bowl on Friday (6/17) with Rye Rye and Deluka. Doors are at 10:30pm, and Oh Land headlines the show at 1am. Tickets are on sale..

Hopefully Oh Land has a chance to rest after the late show, because she's also playing the NYC Pride Rally in Central Park the next day, Saturday, June 18th, 2011, 3:00 - 6:00 PM. Oh Land opens for Katy Perry in California in August, after her tour with Sia that brings her to Webster Hall this summer.

Janelle Monae, Marina & The Diamonds, and Jessie J are also opening dates on Katy's current tour.

Rye Rye (also on the bill of the Oh Land show at Brooklyn Bowl) just released a new video starring... Robyn! Titled "Never Will Be Mine", the track is basically Rye Rye rapping along with Robyn who is singing her 2005 hit song "Be Mine". Check out that video, along with more pictures from Robyn's set at Bonnaroo, a video of Oh Land playing Craig Ferguson recently, and all tour dates, below...

Robyn is the voice of our generation...

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 2:07 PM

If she was going for the salt n pepa back up singer circa 1988 look she nailed it...

@2:07 it's true. Robyn is functioning at such a high level right now. She is like Dylan in '66. A total game changer...

ha ^^^^^^^^ that's right hipster, compare her to dylan in his prime

Robyn is the truth

This is the second T5 she is playing this year? How are the acoustics at JFK? I guess her career is really "taking off"

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 2:27 PM

She's playing with Katy Perry? That tells me all I need to know.

I am truly and deeply offended by Robyn. Just totally classless what she just did.

Wearing the #91 on a sports jersey, how dare she! That's my hockey jersey number for fuck's sake!

i'm fairly certain i've never wanted to beat the living shit out of someone's comment more than i do yours.

you really should be ashamed of yourself.

I don't know who that is, but it's good to see that the hormones are working and that it's body is not rejecting the new parts. All you gawkers secretly like boys. Ain't that the shit!

If somebody's comment(s) on a site like this get you angry, much less angry that you want to punch something, you have issues that would make Shannen Doherty laugh.

I would hit that.

I would not hit it. I would not listen to it either. It's weird you hipsters dig it.

You idiots! 2:18 was obliously being facetious.

To quote the Late, Great Charlie Brown, "Don't you know sarcasm when you hear it?"

I didn't think that I would live to see a B that looked more skanky than Pink. I was wrong. I need to stop taking those bets.

Did you see her give that blowjob on stage?

STOP OBJECTIFYING WOMYN!!!

Posted by COLIN P FITH | June 16, 2011 4:49 PM

Could not hit that. Hairdo too severe bros. She needs to dainty that shit up. Eat some salads for christ sakes. Put down the microphone, put on a skirt, and go in the kitchen and make me a turkey pot pie. And bring me back a beer while you're at it...

I am a sexy lady who would like to marry 5:10. I am dainty and I love salads. I will love you long time!

I was lucky enough to get passes to this. Super stoked! The idea of watching a performance in an airport doesn't sound too promising, but the whole experience will probably be worth it. We're all being fed and transported too so I can't complain.

Hey! I remember from her from Letterman. Wonder what happened to the other people...
