Summer is Katy Perry’s season–we’re sure that she would agree. Her entire wardrobe is designed for it, in fact, as you can kind of tell from how tiny all of her dresses always are. It seems that Katy is determined to dominate 2012 just as she’s dominated the last few summers. A quick refresher on Katy’s monopoly on summer radio for the last few years:
2011: “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”
2010: “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream”
2009: “Waking Up in Vegas”
2008: “I Kissed a Girl”
Can you believe that we are now in the fifth summer of Katy Perry? We kind of can’t. We kept thinking that she would stop being so popular, and yet here we are. Katy seems focused on making 2012 her biggest summer yet, with the release of a 3D concert movie created to make her seem more relatable, friendly, and talented, as well as placing blame for her recent divorce fully on Russell Brand. Here’s the trailer:
So evidently Katy Perry is AN ARTIST, Y’ALL. Not a stereotypical pop singer as we might have thought. “Every song has something to do with her life,” we are told by some rando who is never identified.
It also becomes very clear in this trailer that Katy is making a movie to show herself as someone overcoming adversity and becoming a international superstar–despite those awful people who would have tried to hold her back. Like Christians. And Russell Brand.
Look, we get that divorce sucks, but the contrast in how Russell and Katy have behaved is striking. Russell is consistently very nice about Katy, recently saying, “I still love her as a human being.” Katy, on the other hand, seems to be very willing to talk about the divorce pretty explicitly. It’s pretty clear she’s planning to in the movie, and let’s take a look at the lyrics for her latest single “Wide Awake”:
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Outta the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
And it’s too late
The story’s over now, the end
Katy. Too soon. Too explicitly you telling Russell how much better your life is without him. No one believes someone who’s trying too hard, Katy–and when Russell Brand is out-classing you, you probably need to carefully examine your life.
Her movie does look like it would probably be a lot of fun, but we wish that Katy Perry would give us a little bit of a break from being a victim and just go back to shooting whipped cream out of her boobs. Play to your strengths, girl. We’ll all be more comfortable.
