Katy Perry- why no movies yet?

Isn't that the next step? She's certainly attractive enough, and has shown a flare for comedy. I can see her in Debra Winger-type roles.

But nothing in production. Strange...

Katie just looks like she often smells "yeasty."

by Anonymousreply 112/02/2012

She doesn't even know how to sing well, her music is generic crap, why would anyone want to see a film in which she's starring?

OP, "flair," not "flare."

The return on a movie for a first time actress is not going to be as good as the return on an album by a singer at the peak of her career. Both require about the same amount of work in Katy Perry's case.

Besides, we already have the Zooey Deschanel.

She's no Mandy Moore!

If someone did a campy and kitschy movie version of "Wonder Woman" then Katy Perry would be perfect for the role. I think that kind of thing would do well during the summer. She has the coloring and figure for it and she also seems to be a bit in on her own joke somewhat.

She did a concert movie and it flopped. I don't think anybody is clamoring to see her act.

by Anonymousreply 812/02/2012

Nah, her concert money may have undershot her ideals, but it pulled in a fair bit of money.

There have previously been random rumors about her negotiating some supporting or smaller film roles.

She's guest-starred on at least two TV shows: HIMYM and Raising Hope. I only saw the latter and didn't care for it. She's gotten quite good at playing Katy Perry, but I can't picture myself liking her crossover.

A pox on you, OP. And on all your future ancestors for a 1000 years to come.

That's... interesting.

So sue me, R11, and our education system.

OP, there really aren't that many examples of female singers who've successfully transitioned into film, Cher aside.

by Anonymousreply 1312/02/2012

I can't believe someone as generic looking as her became a star. Her looks are so forgettable.

Her concert movie didn't make $90 million ww like my masterpiece Burlesque.

by Anonymousreply 1512/02/2012

Does she want to be in movies?

by Anonymousreply 1612/02/2012

A more pertinent question would be why has she even had a musical career, let alone a film career.

by Anonymousreply 1712/02/2012

Her voice is very hard to listen to as is Kesha's. I don't mind over-processed vocals, but I think they deliberately try to make their voices sound harsh to make them stick in your mind.

by Anonymousreply 1812/02/2012

She's not particularly attractive or talented. There. Did that answer your question?

by Anonymousreply 1912/02/2012

I was hoping she and Russell Brand would end up being this generation's Taylor and Burton. But Brand refused to drink. He is a fabulous wit and she is a great beauty. She writes songs for other people too and that's where the money is. Her people have told her to lay low after the events of the past couple of years. Count on it. She doesn't need the money.

Oh, Mandy. Stop trying to make yourself happen!

by Anonymousreply 2212/02/2012

She's also kind of on the chubby side as far as Hollywood ideals go.

by Anonymousreply 2312/02/2012

I personally can't stand the bitch. Her songs are wretched and her skin is a mess. Dumb fucking cunt.

Sorry, R21...concert MOVIE money.

by Anonymousreply 2512/02/2012

Overall, she eludes me. And not in a glamorous way.

by Anonymousreply 2612/02/2012

She's annoying and obvious and does not hold the screen.

Other than that, she's great.

by Anonymousreply 2712/02/2012

Britney did so great in movies. Justin to Kelly was a cinema classic too!

by Anonymousreply 2812/02/2012

Britney has done pretty well in guest spots. Her arc in HIMYM was especially good, and she was playing someone not herself.

Is KP a dipso?

by Anonymousreply 3012/02/2012

She bores me to tears, for hers is a career that should never have been. Bitch is so high school talent show 1st runner up.

R30 - I think she likes to drink, but she's probably not an alcoholic.
