Katy Perry: Your Thoughts?

So, I'm surprised there wasn't a thread for this already, and I couldn't find one if there was.

How do you feel about Katy Perry of 'I Kissed a Girl' fame?

Personally, I fucking hate her.

First, she creates a song with a title that's been done before as a different song, clearly just to get attention. She's a preacher's daughter who tried doing the straight arrow Christian music thing before deciding being a 'bad girl' would be a better career move and was quoted as saying she'd do pretty much anything to get famous.

On top of that, 'I Kissed a Girl' is obnoxious and rather insulting, and if I may stand on my soapbox a moment sets a poor example for women, furthering the idea that you can be a whore to be popular. (And it's not just because girls kissing girls doesn't do anything for me, if it were boys I'd have the same issue.) I don't understand how feminists haven't assassinated her yet.

She has minimal to non-existent talent and is in summary an embodiment of what's wrong with modern music. I hope she goes away quickly, and I strongly suspect she will.

Thoughts?

I don't like her on the grounds she stole Zooey Deschanel's look.

Another excellent point.

Re: Katy Perry: Your Thoughts?

Anyone who helps promote an end to heteronominative language in the popular culture is cool by me. Plus, she's kinda hot.

She's cute and the song has a good beat. You can dance to it. I give her a nine.

"I Kissed A Girl..." Is the best song ever.

Katy Perry really cute. I'd do her in heartbeat.

The rest of her music?

Bah.

Really? Or do you just like it because she's talking about kissing another girl?

That said, I have found myself head-bopping to her at work. It's catchy, but that's all, and she's annoying.

Re: Katy Perry: Your Thoughts?

Well, then that's at least understandable.

I mean, how can it not be hot?! She's talking about tasting another girl's lipstick and the excitement of it!

I mean, it's hot!

The video is hot too!
