Where’s the cotton candy hair? The Americana tits shooting whipped cream and fireworks? The … bubblegum similarities to Justin Bieber? It’s all gone. And don’t you remember? You should have considered yourself warned. Katy said that shit was about to get all dark and scary and what not, both with her style and her music. The only thing she lied about, however, was the hair in the face thing. What she’s actually got going on in these photos is quite the opposite. It’s hair way out of her face.
And why, you wonder, is Katy Perry dressed up like she’s about to suck the life out of some unsuspecting fan? It was all for the Yves Saint Laurent show at this year’s Paris Fashion Week, and what do you guys think about the brand-new look? Kind of hot, right? I mean, I think I actually sort of prefer Katy Perry with a darker edge to her. Her music still flat-out sucks, and that performance at this year’s Grammys … just … whew (and not a good ‘whew’), but the look? If she could keep her mouth shut for five seconds at a clip, she might just start being tolerable, and wouldn’t that be quite a trip?
In related news, remember that performance of hers at the Grammys when she performed ‘Part of Me’ – or, you know, the song that lambasted Russell Brand and his love? Katy’s claiming that the song isn’t about him, and wasn’t even written recently:
“I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like ‘God, it sounds so current.’ Some people that I work with were like, ‘You should just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago.’ I’m like, ‘I’m not a d—, I’m going to tell the truth.’ I wrote it two years ago when I was writing and recording Teenage Dream, [but] it didn’t feel right on the record. … Sometimes I’m like, ‘Am I living in The Truman Show?’ … What’s going on?’ It just feels like sometimes I’m caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music! It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything. I’m overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways.”
So … I don’t know. I’m kind of not buying it. And why wouldn’t she admit to penning the song about Russell anyhow? Well because she’d probably end up looking like a heel. More than she already does.
