You can go ahead and file this under: Bitch, are you kidding me? Above is a photo of the ever demure, Katy Perry, wearing a whorrifying Elmo T-Shirt on Saturday Night Live a while back. Katy has got some luscious breasts that she has never had any problem flaunting, yet according to her new interview with NPR’s Weekend Edition, she thinks female popstars need to put their lady parts away. All I can think is: Is this a joke?
Most of today’s popular female popsingers (Miley, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, etc) have no problem showing a bit of skin, and by a bit of skin I mean showing everything but their labia minora (my money’s on Gaga to be the first to show us hers), and apparently Perry thinks those ladies need to “put it away.”
In the Weekend Edition interview, Perry says:
“Everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before, but I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed. I’m not talking about anyone in particular. I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s like, everybody’s so naked.”
Though she doesn’t name names, it’s not hard to guess the popstars she’s referring to. Not that Perry thinks she’s never used the sexy card, as she adds:
“I’ve taken it out here and there. And I’m not necessarily judging. I’m just saying sometimes it’s nice to play that card but also it’s nice to play other cards. And I know I have that sexy card in my deck but I don’t always have to use that card.”
That last line is where she really got me. She doesn’t always have to use the sexy card? Bitch, you went on Sesame Street looking like this:
Who shows Kim Kardashian level cleavage on SESAME STREET?! And why are you always trying to skank up Elmo?!?! I hate when female popstars go from being fun to being “serious” about their art and music and suddenly think they’re so holier than thou. I’ve seen the video for Roar. It’s all cleavage and bad spray tan, and that’s fine, but own it!
Don’t act like you’re Joni fuckin’ Mitchell now because your newest album cover has a little less photoshop than your last ones and you’re wearing a top on it! (I think? She’s at least got a jacket on!) Don’t act like you’re not a bubblegum, busty pop tart just because you’re banging John Mayer (EVERYONE has banged John Mayer, it doesn’t make you deep).
So, Katy Perry, before you diss your musical counterparts for being too sexy, all while claiming you don’t always use your sexy card, I would like for you to have a look at this:
I think my point has been made…
