Y’all know I stan for Katy Perry all day, e’ry day, as they say, but I will have to call a queen out when I see something that’s not quite right. Today’s offense? Katy posing a picture of herself in lingerie and captioning it with something about how she’s “feeling v Lolita rn”. Uh, no.
I know Katy gets off on wanting to be/pretending to be a teenage girl all the time, but like, has she actually read Lolita? Like, does she get the cultural and literary significance? Something tells me not, because there is nothing Lolita-like in that picture, sorry.
Katy does not look like an underage seductress here. She doesn’t look like a teenager, even. She looks like a 30-year-old woman, just like she is. A sexy, beautiful 30-year-old woman, NOT a little girl. That’d be creepy as shit anyway. Why won’t she own that? I sure as shit women who are grown would just be grown.
