Katy Perry = Religious Nutbag

The California girl, who has "Jesus" tattooed on her left wrist, tells the magazine, "Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as 'Pass the salt..' It's a secret, direct prayer language to God." Perry, 25, adds that her dad usually speaks in tongues while her mom plays interpreter. "That's their gift," she explains.

I knew her parents were religious nutjobs, but thought for some reason she was more intelligent. Guess not. What a shame.....

I thought she abandoned the pretensions of religiosity when she became a faux-lesbo secular heathenist devil-woman.

by Anonymousreply 308/02/2010

How long before she cracks under the strain of the double identity? Coming from a "Speaking In Tongues" church for the first 16 years of my life I can tell you that shit is hard to shake.

Wow. Even as a kid, I knew the whole "speaking in tongues" thing was a bunch of horseshit. It was always done by the people who needed attention, people who wanted to seem "special".

Didn't she try that holy Christian pop princess image first, failed and then did a complete image overhaul and then had her big success with "I kissed a girl"?

When she criticized Lady Gaga for the Christian themes used in her Alejandro video (= using Christian symbols in a mockery manner is as old as fart jokes) I was like "bitch, please! Like YOU have any credibility to speak up in that matter!"

She and Russell really belong together. Match made in *heaven*

Somehow I can't see her and easy-going, fun-loving Brand staying together for long. I can see her getting bitchy and Jesusy on him after marriage. That's if it isn't another big old beard relationship.

Yes--she started out as a "Christian artist." Whatever. I can totally see Snoop Dogg doing her, he'll do anything these days.

Is a "speaking in tongues" church where they hold the rattle snakes to see if they'll get bitten by god or whatever? It sounds totally bizarre and alien to me.

Sorry queens, but "speaking in tongues" is lesbanese braille.

[quote]easy-going, fun-loving Brand

As if. His persona is as fake as Perry's is. Only if you're the kind of person that believes the Gagas, Reznors, and Marilyn Mansons of the world are real would you also fall for Brand's or Perry's act. Protip: Amanda Palmer is also fake, and Neil Gaiman is a closeted Scieno.

I second R17's observations about Brand. Like others, although I like her music (damnit!), I find her irritating, especially after the GaGa comment and her association with Perez Hilton.

Bitch is lying -with her new and improved set of bolt on titties.

Note, both of Perez' hags have made it to the top, hmm.

Perry is incredibly smug and irritating.

She's also becoming a flabby, fat thin person. I know she likes to brag about being "milk fed," but she'd better be careful.

You guys are daft. Don't you notice tongue in cheek comments when you see them? She's not a religious nutbag. I mean, have you ever heard any of her lyrics???

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't "speaking in tongues" also include being miraculously understood even while babbling.

The charismatic churches always seem to forget that part.

R25, tongue in cheek? That might be believable if she didn't have a Jesus tattoo.

[quote]Katy Perry believes that all celebrities search online for stories about themselves. 'Any artist who says they don't Google their name is a big fat liar,' she said. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer told of trawling the web and finding comments she allegedly made about Miley Cyrus. She took to Twitter to make things right, posting, 'I never said shit bout my girl Miley. I love that ho.'It's a little gross,' the 25-year-old admitted. 'I'm sure no one knew or cared about that line about Miley. When you look at other celebrities' Twitter feeds and see them posting about something they read about themselves on a Google Alert, it's like, 'Uh, maybe you should stop Googling yourself every day, the world does not spin around you.'

[bold]That's right, it revolves around Katy Perry herself.[/quote]

I've always wondered how much post production went into her MTV Unplugged special. There's clips of it on Youtube - her voice sounds good there, but it is one of the few examples of her singing without assistance (when she performs usually it's all lip synch.) [/bold]

Well, the bold type is off now, Mr. Anger Management.

And Katy Perry is a hypocrite and an idiot. Her parents make money off of speaking engagements where they discuss what a lost soul she and Russell Brand are. Christians sure pay big bucks for some shit entertainment.

There's nothing wrong with Amanda Palmer. She's cool. There's just a major Amanda Palmer hater on the web these days, who's taken it upon himself/herself to diss Amanda at every opportunity.

And for the person asking who she is, she's a music artist and quite smart and talented. She's part of the musical duo, the Dresden Dolls. They do a style of music called Dark Cabaret. She also does solo work.

Amanda is currently engaged to the writer, Neil Gaiman. I think she wound up with so many haters because Neil's got a gazillion crazed fangurls who are in love with him.

So what. People in my family speak in tongues, they aren't making anyone else do it. Having a tattoo or belief in Jesus (which I have neither) doesn't always mean X or Y. Neither does not having those things make you a better person or X or Y, either.

"People in my family speak in tongues, they aren't making anyone else do it."

Unsurprising, R61. Religious people have a pick-and-choose mentality with EVERYTHING. Surely the Lord made her in his own image and set the human life span to be a certain length and for the body to change accordingly. Basically he's saying he doesn't approve of God's work. Hypocrite yet again.

Wow. Do you really believe that there is just one person going from webpage to webpage on a crusade against some "artist"?

There is a lot out there criticizing Amanda Palmer. Her "performance art" where she pretends to be disabled conjoined twins, or the time she made fun of disabled women and went on Australian television to make fun of disabled women AGAIN, her homophobic comments, the time she said Lady Gaga was "like the Klan" because of product placement in videos, or the song with the "SO HELP YOUR BLACK ASS" lyrics?

It's all on Google. There are thousands of comments about Palmer being racist, sexist, and homophobic, because it's kind of what she does to get attention. And you think one single person is writing all this? Seek help.

She seems obsessed with selecting herself out as the "good girl pop star" while those evil hussies are taking all their clothes off.


In a new Entertainment Weekly interview, Perry remarks, "There's times when you see other people who, the only reason why they have success is because they're just shock jocks, which works for a period of time. I haven't really taken off all my clothes yet, so I still have that card to play if I want to. I think when you play that card first, then you're like [groans]. Yeah, I've done my fair share of 'naked on a cotton candy cloud' situation, but everything is with a wink. It's not like, 'Here's my vagina.' Rihanna has a fantastic body. Same with Miley – she's got an amazing body, and they get away with so much more stuff because it looks so great. Me, honestly, I've got cellulite. I'm just hiding it."

Other recent comments In another interview with NPR, she admitted she feels herself "becoming this inspiration out of default right now because it's such a strange world. Like females in pop - everybody's getting naked. I mean, I've been naked before but I don't like to feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed. But it's interesting to see. I'm not talking about anyone in particular. I'm talking about all of them. I mean, it's like everybody's so naked. It's like, 'put it away!' We know you've got it. I got it too. I've taken it off for - I've taken it out here and there. And I'm not necessarily judging."

Perry also recently told Le Grand Journal that she likes "all of my focus and attention to be on my music. I admire those ladies and I know that they're all doing their own thing in their own way. But for me, I want people to understand that I'm here to entertain them through music. And I don't necessarily like to abuse the attention of the viewer or the listener - not that I'm saying they do!"

Over 600 million Christians speak on tongue or attend churches that believe in it. Moreover, it is a biblical practice that is part of not only the fastest and most dynamic segment of Christianity, but also the fastest major religious movement on the globe today. Charismatic and Pentecostal Christianity is solidly the mainstream of current Christianity, and is within every major denomination, including Roman Catholicism,Lutherans, and Anglicans.
