While John Mayer goes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to wax poetic about the difficulty of romantic relationships after break-ups, Katy Perry apparently goes to Madagascar with UNICEF in order to draw attention to the plight of children in the company. While there, she visited a child protection facility and also participated in the promotion of positive hygiene and sanitation through hand washing. Sounds… fun? But definitely important, so good for her.
Here’s what Katy had to say about the experience:
“In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages, and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life – nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse – which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide.
“I am grateful to UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to see first-hand how their programs make a real difference in children’s lives. Support for UNICEF is saving children, I am a witness to it.”
Say what you will about Katy Perry (so long as it’s positive – I love her!), but it’s nice to see someone who’d rather work through her shit by going to see those less fortunate and helping where possible rather than doing the talkshow circuit and basically getting off on her own arrogance – and yes, I’m looking at you, John.
