I’m not sure where Katy Perry came from. I’m not sure what we did to deserve her. She can’t – in the classical sense – “sing”. Her songs are cheeseball, her schtick has been done countless times before: so why is she still around?
The current fascination for “girls with bangs” has made things easier for Katy Perry, who is incredibly easy on the eyes. That’s for sure. And she seems to have incredibly good management: appearing in this months Vanity Fair for no real reason and last months Esquire for no other real reason. The countless photoshoots, the never ending “tour”, and the fact that Perez Hilton has a huge boner for her still don’t add up to the fact she’s only got three songs that anybody knows. Perhaps the real reason is that she’s a total fox and that people can’t get enough of her. Who really knows? Katy Perry, this ones for you. Whatever it is that you do.
