I Think Someone Accidentally Deflated Katy Perry On The Cover Of Marie Claire

Katy Perry on the cover of Marie Claire December 2013I want to like Katy Perry, I really do, but I feel like I can’t get a read on her, and every time I see her she’s lost a little bit more of herself and her own spirit.

She supposedly has this message of female empowerment and independence, but every time Katy has cropped up in the media lately, I feel like it’s been to gush over whatever guy she’s dating. She’s so obsessed with John Mayer‘s brain and calling him brilliant that it overwhelms any positive things that she might think about herself. What’s up with that, lady?

Katy herself is a powerful, talented, independent woman, but you have to admit that she makes really strange choices. Aside from the whole ‘marrying Russell Brand‘ thing, she also dressed up as a geisha at the AMAs for no reason, carries locks of other celebrities’ hair in her purse, and cannot stop obsessing over how brilliant John Mayer is, and how relieved she is to be back together with him. It’s so counterintuitive, to be that obsessed with a guy who broke up with you once for no good reason and could very easily do it again. Here’s what she told Marie Claire in their January 2014 issue, for which she does her best sexy fish impression on the cover:

“I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what let me to this new awakening, this realizing ‘If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want.’”

Katy Perry in the Marie Claire cover shoot January 2014I’m all for self-love and figuring your stuff out, girl, but not when it’s for someone else. Doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of it, if you’re gaining self-awareness in hopes that it’ll make you not more self-reliant, but less? I feel like you can learn all you need just by looking at her face on the cover; she’s perfectly made up and sexily-dressed and stuff, but her eyes are dead and not a single muscle in her face is engaged. I thought you were a firework, Katy! YOU TOLD ME YOU WERE A FIREWORK.

      How do you even pose like that? I would feel so silly… which is why I’m not a model or a celebrity.

        You float in a bath of water like a really sultry fish and then they Photoshop it all away so you’re hovering in air.

      She doesn’t pose like that. The photographer puts her in that position and tells her to hold it. Very few can have the strength and savvy and ability to pull off being the way they want before the camera. Not to mention the know how. Katy doesn’t hone that know how but she will learn.

      John Mayer is worth knowing. He is a great musician, a very good songwriter, and a very sexy guy with an independent spirit. He is also dangerous and exciting. But so is Katy. Never forget her early Christian Fundie upbringing and its effect on her either. And Russell Brand is a hard act to follow in any woman’s life. He is a pure diamond and the fact that they were married says quite a lot about Katy Perry. So she couldn’t keep him, but she did get him. Can any of you say tht about yourselves. Yes I know you all say but I wouldn’t want Brand or Mayer. Well tht’s good. Because you couldn’t get either one of them to take you out to dinner.

      What’s with all this fuggin pop up shit. Having trouble paying the bills?

        I am so confused by this response. In the first paragraph it seems like you are agreeing with the author about her pictures and in the second you go on a rant about the guys Katy Perry has been with and assume the author is jealous. What is the point you are attempting to make because the way you phrased it was incoherent?

        I’m not trying to make a point. And I don’t necessarily write in a linear, progressive style. Ain’t you iver red Joyce lady?

        Also, how else do you think websites pay their bills, if not for ads?

        Why do they have to make money. Get a day job and write from your heart and mind.
