This gorgeous photo for Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” album shows that she’s developing a really distinctive style. It’s candy-inspired and playful – no hard edges. Take a look at the lyric video for “Teenage Dream” – it’s oddly satisfying.

    Teenage dream? No, thanks. And why doesnt a teenage artist sing that? KATY will soon be 26, wheres the teenage part in that? Just my 2 cents…

    Does she ever not wear those stupid wigs with bangs?

    Perry seems part of a slowly growing wave of American pop that is super-tuneful, mature while still being youthful, unpretentious, and clean (both in sound and image). Whenever I hear a Katy Perry, or a The Drums, song, I feel like I am going through a pop culture detox. The dark and sleazy days may soon be over.

    Then you HAVE been fooled. Because despite the up-beat, colorful and seemingly playful nature of KP’s music, its true tone is very dark and ominous. Take a closer look…

    I can’t look at her without being freaked out at how her eyes are two completely different sizes and shapes. I think her ridiculous clothes are a way to keep people from noticing this abnormality.

    Frank, yeah, I have heard it all before.

    What is the deal this time? Play the song backward, and hear Satan saying “I hate America, the French rule.”? Kate has a lesbian agenda? Perry’s turning her back on her christian roots means she is a demon is human form? Whatever.

    I assumed that, since we are on a celebrity gossip site, we were all reading from the same page. I know pop music is product, and I was speaking in that context. I do not want Perry to be the next president, or godmother to my future children, or my BFF. I like her music, videos and persona – it is produced and packaged in a nice clean way.

    Cannot sing, saw her live on “Today” show last summer and she sucked. She’s all autotuned on her records and has no voice and no musical talent. Hate her stupid image and boyfriend, she’s an untalented twat.

    She’s a studio creation, plain and simple. Can’t stand the sight or sound of her.

    The song’s mediocre and will certainly never be any kind of classic, but then I’m sure she’s not shooting for that either. I love the top photo and don’t think that’s a real bathing suit, but a painted on one, but they must have used those nipple shields under the paint to hide them. LOVE the shoes! But I think she’s too old for the lyrics as well, being that she’s long gone on being a tee-nage-er as she pronouces it in the song. I wish she’d hook up with that handsome hunk she’s playing with in the video instead of that hideous freak she’s engaged to. while the video was running I kept imaging HIM there instead and it was HORRIBLE!!! EWWW!!!

    Her fiance lover Russell Brand looks crazy out the eyes and he is not in the least funny.

    On American Idol, Katy was a guest judge and Kara DioGuardi said something to piss her off, and Katy said out loud..”I’d like to throw this coca cola in your face”.

    These are two talentless nutcases in my humble, but correct, opinion.

    If she’s got two goofy eyes then she’s a match for that psycho-eyed boyfriend.

    Well, no. No ‘backwards masking’ here. Far more clever than that. But, that lesbian aganda concept is not far from the point. There’s more though. Lots of symbolism in the videos and the lyrics. And that ‘nice clean packaging’ you speak of is the poison apple…

    Not that I want to sound like Reta on uppers, but to all you people who seem to have a serious issue with gays and lesbians:

    What the hell are you doing on a celebrity gossip site? For that matter, what the hell are you doing having anything to do with pop culture, period?

    Stop watching television, get off the Internet, throw a sheet over – and a chastity belt onto – your women folk, go to church, listen to your christian rock crap, read the bible from cover to cover, and stop annoying those of us who are trying to have a bit of a chuckle.

    P.S. Is it just me, or there something titillating about the thought of Perry and Brand having crazy monkey sex? Frankly, I WOULD watch the video.

    I never heard Katy Perry sing so can’t judge that, she has huge cans and I can judge that. Her man sucks to the 9 thousandth degree and is not even close to being funny other than the way he looks.

  17. By SebastianCanada

    Lenny, so I take it that is a NO on the sex tape.

    Have you seen the guy katy is effn? Her hotness meter drops ways down. Water seeks it’s own level.

    Brand is a recovering sexaholic and is not one of those Hollywood pretty boys who has bent over for the casting couch treatment. He probably knows what he is doing in bed and has not smoked pole. I think that may have something to do with the attraction.

    I think Katy is a really cute woman and sexy and playful with it. But Russell Brand is NOT funny in any way shape or form, has horrible teeth, an annoying voice, hideous tangled hair, a scrawny unmasculine body and a few mutinous hairs on his five-year-old-boy’s-chest. Imagining him nude is enough to make me loose my lunch a year in advance. I can’t even imagine the two of them: a hot horny chick and this sexless looking snaggle-toothed creature that glows in the dark, getting it on in any position, but I’m guessing it HAS to be something that isn’t face to face in order for her to keep from throwing up all over him. I sure would love to see her with a real manly man, like the fellow in the video! There’s still time, they’re not married YET!

    Reta, odds are the guy in the album is more of a man’s man, if you know what I mean.

    Both Katy and Russell are annoying. They’re perfect for each other. As for her music: nothing exciting or groundbreaking about it. And every song sounds the same.

  23. By SebastianCanada

    Sally, you ARE a senior citizen.

    There is nothing wrong with Perry or today’s pop music. There are many reasons a singer or group does not sound good live. And there have always been performers who were not good live performers.

    I do not really care, as I would rather listen to a CD in the privacy of my home or car than go to a concert and stand around with a bunch of sweaty, drunk or drugged out, morons, who aren’t listening to the music anyway.

    Just take some Geritol, and stop listening if you don’t like it.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
