Can't stand her. She's just another autotuned karaoke singer who has no talent and a vapid, unintersting personality.
Where are all the young Ann Wilsons, Stevie Nickses, Donna Summers, etc. in today's pop music scene? The current roster of young female pop talent is abysmal.
Sure. Snip me off some of that.
She's bloatilated! Sooo-ee!
I think it's booze bloat. KP still looks good, but I could see her getting fat.
She is a propaganda singer for the US Military.
"Putting on some weight."
Too much Brand flake can really mess up your system.
R9 - But she got rid of the Brand Flake.
What's the point in hating someone you don't even know? Oh wait, you're just trying to reinforce the stereotype.
Both her music and personality are incredibly grating. And I didn't see her stupid concert movie, but I hated that dumb tagline about people embracing her 'weird'. Bitch shoots whip cream out of her tits, she's not exactly being subversive.
Katy Perry is #1 :)
hate her and Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, they all suck
I hate her so much, I'm dating her.
I like her voice. It's clear and I can understand what she sings.
R16 - I can take or leave her voice.
Don't like her. She's a phony and a hypocrite -- singing songs about kissing girls and dressing suggestively 'cuz you know, she's cool and hip and with it. But then she did that Rolling Stone interview where she complained about then hubby Russell Brand using the Lord's name in vain, and took offense to Lady Gaga mixing sex with religion. It's a case of good Christian girl playing dress-up for fame and fortune.
She complained about RB using the Lord's name in vain? Jesus!
Ungrateful cunt, but she swallows.
I wrote this in another thread, but she sounds like a howling dog on that Fireworks song or whatever it's called.
What she has going for her is her face and boobs.
I don't know much about Perry. With the meager talent of pop stars these days I presume she's not worse as a singer.
She has terrible taste in men, going from one douche to the next. The next (Meyer) being arguably even more of a douchebag than Brand.
I saw/heard her in an interview recently. She has this wierd, mannered, little-girl sing song voice. Is she like that all the time? If so, I'd fucking divorce her quicker than Brand did.
What R12 said. She's so mundane that she makes Debby Boone look like one of my star-spawn.
I did not get her at first and I couldn't even listen to that I Kissed a Girl song.
But I love well-written pop songs, and I knew the first time I heard Teenage Dream and California Girls, I was going to have to surrender to Katy Perry! And Part of Me is in heavy rotation - in my head!
She is working with the best pop songwriters and producers, and really anyone would have a hit if they recorded these songs.
Madonna would have had another Ray of Light/Confessions album had she worked with whoever Katy is working with.
She really lost the plot when she married Brand. Everyone knew she must have gone mad even her best friend Rhianna didn't show to her wedding.
I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did before KP came to her senses.
You're so gay and you don't even like boys.
why are ppl on this site so anti women? many women are referred to as sluts and cunts on this site and it is unfair.
A woman who is not a cunt or slut
She needs to be slapped across the tits a few times.
She's fundie-sanctioned "quirky". I think she overstates her upbringing in order to be like "but I've changed and I love you guys!" Compared to Kristin Chenoweth, who I think has finally found a way to balance her faith and her stance on gay rights in a way that is actually convincing.
You hate her because she's in and you are not only out, but you were never in
She tries too hard.
I saw her on a talk show and she was trying so hard to be dry and funny and failing.
These new crop of girls want to be dropped right into superstardom without paying any dues. They don't develop personalities we can identify with- they develop 'style'. And then change it constantly.
Yeah, Madonna changed her hair color a lot- but she was always Madonna. I don't know who the hell these girls are.
I eat old people's excrement.
She has perma-facial-bloat, but I like the songs Dr Luke writes for her/autotunes for her. Her voice is a disaster live...that Dr Luke knows how to work his magic (I think he's gay too - 40 years old, unmarried, no kids, rich and in pop music. May be involved with Max Martin or self-loathing self-imposed celibacy). Anyway, Dr Luke is a handsome, handsome man...google him...would love to make him my hubby.

That's part of her act, too. Just like Sarah Palin and the republicans.
When it comes to crappy pop songs, I prefer Rihanna.
Is she the singer who sounds like a little girl, who they use for background music in ads for children's stuff?
If so, seriously annoying.
What's also grating about her is that her songs and her whole persona are total kiddie porn, while she's fucking 27 years old! And still singing dumb shit about kissing girls, and partying on Friday night or whatever her stupid songs are about. Her concerts look like something from Candy Land. The posters from her movie show her in her bedroom pretending to sing into a microphone in front of a mirror. The woman is pushing 30 and still acts like a teenager. Aging is going to be hell for this woman.
R41, she's a completely fabricated product. These people just agree to go along with whatever the powers that be will have them do, she probably has barely any say in it. She's pathetic. Same with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Madonna for that matter. But at least they had Madonna doing some semi fun pop stuff many years ago.
Who cares if shes 27 and sings about going on Friday night, kissing girls.
Gwen Steffani was pretending she was in high school when she was 45!
Saw an interview with Gwen Stefani. I thought she had the intelligence of your average high schooler. I'm not kidding, either.
Oh R37, how I love thee. It's impossible to get any personal info on Dr. Luke (whereas it's at least known that mentor Max Martin who is even more reclusive and media shy is married with kids) but he sure is a (teenage) dream isn't he? Swoon.
Oh, 45, I didn't know he was married with kids. Dr Luke will make any man or woman happy...I think he's just working hard to make his money so he can retire and relax. I'd be happy if he was straight, bi, gay, whatever. He's just too pretty.
"Saw an interview with Gwen Stefani. I thought she had the intelligence of your average high schooler. I'm not kidding, either."
I believe you. I saw Gwen interviewed on Letterman when she was promoting her solo album and it completely changed my opinion of her. I'd say you're being generous in describing her intelligence.
hate with a fervor only previously reserved for such HAC/AAA (hot adult contemporary/adult album alternative, two types of radio formats) doyennes, Jewel and Natalie Merchant. And they still serve as the two first class flight attendants on the spaceship to hell.
But yeah, bitch gotta go.
R47, you are right, I was being generous because I didn't want to be accused of exaggerating. I was stunned. And she's portrayed as being 'cool' to the public.
Natalie Merchant and Jewel have much more talent and class than KP. R48
Yeah R46, agreed with all of that. I think the workaholism is a means to an end and also he knows he has limited shelf life and his inspiration is drying up, bringing in new songwriters, so strike while the iron's hot.
I don't believe that someone that looks like that has no personal life as he suggested in an interview, but it seems possible for him since he's locked in a studio 24/7 - just now with protege Ke$ha who he seems to put most effort in (in a very real sense according to some rumours).
I've read conflicting things but never anything concrete, that he's married with 4 kids - though he must never wear his wedding ring. And if you do some digging (lol) there's pics of him with this hot blonde (female) movie producer and they look kinda in love. But I'm still not sure, I tend to still go with your unmarried/gay theory.
That he pings is for sure, on youtube there's an early video of him with the annoying Avril Lavigne ruining it and he seems very straight there despite some gay goings on. But then later on he abandons that trying too hard and out come the swishy mannerisms and gay voice, but not overwhelming enough and flaming to tell either way, you only notice it when tuned in.
It doesn't make sense why he would be so cagey about his personal life (all while having a Twitter page where he's like an ADHD 13 year old girl) at least in interviews he isn't trying to hide it, but one thing I read was gay producers don't like to declare their sexuality in fear of scaring off clients - this makes a lot of sense as he started off in hip hop and still does some rap productions.
Whatever the case with his sexuality, he is such a fascinating character with a background of many contradictions. Some say he has a massive ego and his productions are generic (they can be, but they also span rock, pop, dance and hip hop). He's also a self-admitted teenage drug dealer and was a bit of a hustler on his rise to the top yet has this laidback chilled out hippy vibe which doesn't compute with those hedonistic party songs. He's so beautiful to look at though and seems a great person, he's such a catch even before figuring in the bank account.
She promotes the US Military invasions with her videos.
 I saw this interview where Kesha was like "Luke gives me advice about boys and we do yoga together" - if he was the typical, chauvinistic prick producer, he'd try to f*** Kesha..so he's either bi or gay or just a stand-up straight guy who has morals and boundaries. Either way is fine with me! I DO think his Twitter is obnoxious, but I think he's using it as a way to market himself to artists, trying to seem a little younger.
The BEST thing Russell Brand ever did for her.
I never understood how Russell, who is/was friends with Amy Winehouse, Carl Barat from the Libertines and whose favorite band was The Smiths could possibly marry and respect a woman who is known for singing about fireworks and shooting whipped cream out of her tits. What did they have in common (besides sex that is?). I guess that's why the relationship failed.
I think I read that before she met Russell she'd never even heard of Morrissey.
Obviously the relationship was to boost their careers.
she works VERY hard
she takes orders well
she's gay friendly (Markus M. is her bestie)
most importantly (she SELLS)
im still waiting for her big scandal due in about 1-2 cycles
most y'all are jealous haters
Go back to ONTD, R57.
Go put on an Ethel Merman CD #58
She is Justin Bieber with Tits.
Perry is a talentless sow. She will be completely forgotten in about 3 to 5 years.
Ah yes, R57. People with gay bestie lapdogs can never be homophobic.
I agree R61. Katy Perry is almost 30 and her teenage-girl persona is embarrassing at her age, as the other poster said. She'll probably have one more album that sells and then she'll be over in about 3 more years. Like so many before her.
R60 LOL She does have the rack.
Correction r60. She isn't just Justin Bieber with Tits. She's Justin Bieber with fantastic tits and pretty eyes.
She sings a snappy tune. I try not to look too deep. I set the bar low with pop singers.
she's justin bieber wiping russell brand's jizz from her chin..
I just can't believe anyone thinks that she is good! She is awful. But then again, just about anything on the radio now is awful.
Not anymore R67
Yeah R53, that article with Kesha saying he gave her advice about boys is the big clue.. there isn't anything outright but subtle hints and I think that's the one where it says he grew up listening to Madonna - would be very interesting to see what he came up with her since he was a fan.
There's a much earlier pre-fame interview by a fan where Luke says he didn't like being behind drums at summer camp cause you couldn't get girls to come up there. But he never says anything in the typical straight guy "she's hot, I'd bang her" way like you say, so it's all very ambiguous.
Either way would be great cause he's so lovely, but it would be nice to know that he was going out with somebody and who he was going out with! Damn behind the scenes people, he's such an odd case for those and should be out front. Twatter page definitely for marketing to the young fans, but he really is into all that stuff and so into music.
She is proof that with enough money behind you, anybody can be famous.
I like Kesha better than this dimwit
It's really annoying how her movie never mentioned Dr Luke once - what good is the puppet without the puppetmaster? I went as a curio expecting to see him in it and it was totally avoided. No wonder they fell out and now they can't work together as he's contracted to Sony.
They never mentioned that breakthrough I Kissed A Girl was written by Luke/Max Martin/Cathy Dennis (the ultimate pop dream team) and she was presented as this hardcore singer songwriter. It mostly focused on pre-fame shit, and the ridiculous concert sets looked like Janet Jackson. The Russell bits were most interesting and indeed R56 there was a blind item about that.
What has happened with her is she's totally worn out her welcome and become overexposed, stretching the Teenage Dream era out to over 2 years and milking every #1 single with remixes and iTunes discount tricks that would shame Mariah.
I hated Wide Awake at first but that's a grower and one of the more interesting unusual Dr Luke productions, the last song she squeezed out of him. Part of Me is horrible though with a particularly tasteless video.
The sad thing is that Teenage Dream was a great bubblegum pop album with almost no filler bar the deplorable Peacock. It was even Grammy nominated for Album of the Year would you believe. Now I have no use for it as she ruined it.
She's no me.
Is her best friend andrew garfield's ex.?i read that somewhere.
I just finished reading her interview in the September issue of Elle magazine. Yes, her best friend is Shannon Woodward. Apparently Katy slept on her couch when she was broke. Wonder how Shannon feels that both her best friend and ex boyfriend have better careers than she does.
They also called Katy a 'gay icon' in the article. Does she really have a large gay following? I thought it was mostly just teens.
I'd like to superglue her front-to-front to Zooey Deschanel so their faces are half and inch apart and let them both drive each other insane with their insufferable, self-regarding, precious, dishonest bullshit.
The Human Cuntipede.
She kissed One Direction's Niall AND Harry at the VMAs tonight! Except, who knows. It's possible that she's already done that in private.
Anyway, I want to think this is "hip"...but I feel kind of embarrassed for her instead. I would never, if I were a 28-year-old with an already immature public persona. Even if they were innocent lip-touches.
MOAR. KATY. PERRY.
Did anyone else hear about this? While she was auctioning a guitar the other day, she kidded twice that she would have sex with the winner, including directly to the guy who won.
Then she got butthurt that the media wrote about it and tweeted: "You WISH I was auctioning off sex. Assholes." What did she expect if everyone heard those jokes? Unless she actually didn't say anything close to them at all.
Katy Perry is nothing more than a life support system for a pair of boob bags.
I hate her voice and her Smurfette persona. Can't change the channel fast enough when she's on the radio or my teevee.
Bad taste in men but I like her.
She's the S.E. Cupp of pop music. See r18's post.
She strikes me as an essentially nice, even insecure, person...who now has all the wrong things enabled. Not a lot of sympathy for anything she might whine about. Sympathy wouldn't make any problems of hers go away, anyway.
R19 - Oh no, that's not fair to Katy. KP may be vapid, but she's not evil.
28 years old and still obsessed with being a sparkly pink princess.
She's also starting to get that boozed up, drugged out, hard look about her. I bet the group of sycophantic friends doesn't help.
