"The subject matter is still in vogue -- just ask Katy Perry. I think the part she did is pretty cool. There are a lot of writers on it, and I think it's probably a stroke of genius to have the king of canine cool, Mr. [Snoop] Dogg, do his thing. But I think her creative part, her musical part, is pretty hooky."

-Mike Love of the Beach Boys on Katy Perry's "California Gurls"

Aw, that's really sweet. Too bad the Beach Boys' record label is threatening to sue Katy Perry if she doesn't add the band to the song's writing credits and get them royalties for ripping off their 1965 hit, "California Girls". But it's always nice to balance out the threat of a lawsuit with a nice compliment.
