9 Dumb Katy Perry Quotes That Prove She’s Right About Having Left School Too Early

Katy Perry Nod

Here’s a thing that I didn’t know before today: Katy Perry dropped out of school in her freshman year of high school and now regrets doing so. And not to be a total jerk, but that sentence right there explains to me so many things. Because homegirl is not smart. But, just like we can’t expect flawless reading skills from a person who only attends school for a few hours a day, we can’t exactly expect stone-cold genius from a person who stopped going to school altogether.

According to an interview that Katy did with Yahoo!, she wishes that she’d spent more QT in the classroom when she was younger.

“I’m kind of bummed at this stage that I didn’t have a great education because I could really use that these days.”

That is indeed correct, Katy. Being smarter overall is one of the ways that you could avoid being made fun of by everyone each time that you open your mouth.

Katy continues, citing her parents’ constant moving as the reason that she missed a lot of school before she had even formally dropped out.

“I was being pulled out of school even in the middle of school and sometimes being home-schooled. Sometimes we were sent to these really half-Christian, half-education, I-don’t-know-what-they-were schools.”

That sucks big time, no snark intended. And although Katy says that she’s “learned to educate [herself] at this stage” and is “still very thirsty for information,” it’s pretttty clear by the inane quotes that she’s always giving that she’s 100% correct about having left school too early. I hope that she knows that it’s never too late to go back and learn some stuff.

1. On her private thoughts becoming public:

Katy PErry Talking

(via)

“I wasn’t stereotyping anyone in particular, I was talking about ex-boyfriend. All these songs are very personal, they’re straight out of a “dear diary” situation…[but] my Anne Frank is now being exposed to the world.” - TheNewGay.net

Are you SURE that you’d like to compare your voluntary release of pop music to any of the number of struggles faced by Anne Frank? Are we positive that that has never gone badly ever before?

2. On feminism:

Katy Perry Silly Face

 (via)

“I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women.” – to Billboard Magazine

Please, feel free not to continue.

3. On racism and cultural appropriation:

Katy Perry Cross Eyes

 (via)

“I guess I’ll just stick to baseball and hot dogs, and that’s it. I know that’s a quote that’s gonna come to fuck me in the ass, but can’t you appreciate a culture? I guess, like, everybody has to stay in their lane? I don’t know.” – to Rolling Stone

This one feels like she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “Alright already, I know I am an idiot!”

4. On her “type” of guy:

Katy PErry Confused

 (via)

“I guess I happen to be attracted to high-frequency men.” – to Cosmopolitan

Pretty sure that doesn’t mean what she thinks it means.

5. On Japanese people:

Katy Perry Nodding

(via)

“I am obsessed with Japanese people. I love everything about them and they are so wonderful as human beings… [Like,] ‘I’m so obsessed, I want to skin you and wear you like Versace.’” – to Jimmy Kimmel

NO. No, Katy, you do not… that is not… you just cannot. What?!? I am speechless.

6. On feminism (again):

Katy Perry Smile

(via)

“I used to not really understand what that word meant but now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men. I am woman… Hear me roar!” – on The Today Show

I am afraid that Katy will never understand the definition of feminism. :(

7. On nudity in pop culture:

Katy Perry Lip Bite

(via)

“It’s such a strange world. Like females in pop — everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before but I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed.” – to NPR

Ahh, the great and wholesome Katy Perry who is always covered from neck-to-toe and never sells sex.

8. On the no-makeup photo of her that Russell Brand tweeted:

Katy Perry Serious

(via)

“I wasn’t pissed. I mean, I can’t be a full tranny every day of the week. That’s an exaggerated part of my personality. It’s me hamming it up. The exterior me is a little bit more smiley than the interior me. So, that picture, it just shows that I’m a normal, everyday woman who has really big dreams. It gives encouragement to any girls out there that they, too, can be a larger-than-life cartoon.” – to Rolling Stone

Did you cringe to death reading that, and are now reading this from the afterlife? Because that’s where I’m writing this from.

9. On aliens:

Katy Perry Sticks Out Tongue

(via)

“Oh my God, when [the show] talks about the sky people , how everyone comes from the sky and how the Pyramids were used for star observations, it’s too much for me. It all seems to connect the dots. It’s blowing my mind.” – to Rolling Stone

Sweet, simple Katy.

    • Meh

      People try too hard to be offended. In particular, the author of this article.

      • Olivia Wilson

        I am not really offended as much as I just think that she’s an idiot. But even if I were offended, that’s sort of a natural reaction that most people don’t need to overthink.

      • chuckrrr

        So she’s an idiot….not smart like you.

      • Olivia Wilson

        I’m not sure if you’re being sarcastic, so thanks/ooooh burn.

      • chuckrrr

        I’ve been around for awhile and one of the things I’ve noticed is that the smartest people I’ve met don’t tend to comment on other peoples intelligence.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Then what are you doing here?

      • chuckrrr

        Calling out nonsense

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Okay cool cool cool, as long as you aren’t commenting on anyone’s intelligence.

      • chuckrrr

        I try not too. Although sometimes to illustrate a point. Very smart people have made stupid arguments. This happens when you start out with false assumptions.

      • M_G

        And what are these false assumptions you’re talking about?

      • FemelleChevalier

        That’s ironic.

      • あおき にしの

        HAHAHAHA, you’re HILARIOUS! Smart people, as in with high IQ, tend to be cruel and dismissive when it comes to stupid words that comes out of stupid people.

      • chuckrrr

        My IQ has decreased by 50 points because my interaction on this thread. I have to get out of here while I can still chew my food and enunciate a few words

      • あおき にしの

        So what, your IQ is now zero? That’s sad. But since you’re horrible in your bullshit which people will see as a pathetic excuse for “reasoning”, I’ll just consider it as a blessing. But hey, maybe you can bumped it up by at least 10 points if you stop listening to pop music and start listening to Mozart or Beethoven more. Worth a try, right?

      • chuckrrr

        I so predicted you would come back with that snappy retort. Then I thought nooo not that …but you didn’t let me down. I love

        Mozart , Beethoven Hytden, Van Morrison, Metallica,The Almann Bros and many more but it don’t lord over any superiority because of my eclectic preferences

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      What a tender gift.

      • Olivia Wilson

        Precious and holy.

    • Maria

      I’ve met her a few times, and she’s actually really sweet. Stop giving her a hard time.

      • Olivia Wilson

        I’m really glad that she’s sweet! I don’t think that she’s a bad person (I don’t know, but I’ll take your word that she’s at least nice), I’m just saying that she makes a bunch of dumb comments to the media.

      • chuckrrr

        Olivia… she does appear to be sweet. She also appears to be quite smart and witty. The comments appear dumb to you because you have come to accept some false premises to base your opinions and you don’t understand the context the comments. You make assumptions based on very little information Olivia. And you seem to dive in with a preconceived conclusion. That’s not smart

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        “That’s not smart”

        Hey chuckrrr — what were you saying earlier about commenting on other peoples’ intelligence?

      • chuckrrr

        Alexis…Are you starting to get the point? You seem to at least seem to be able to recognize some precieved inconsistencies. Do you have the ability to critically analyze your own arguments? Or are you grasping for the next evidence to support your ideas. Here’s where you start…the premises.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Started from the bottom now we here.

      • FemelleChevalier

        I wonder, how can you be absolutely certain that she is smart? Based on your own logic, the premise is important in ascertaining what the supposed context is, right?

        So, if say, the situation is that KP thinks that comparing her secret getting out as an “Anne Frank situation”. You’ll probably say that the context is her exaggerating her point. Now, if we look at it on an objective level, how can comparing her songs to Anne Frank’s diary be a smart thing to say? As in I’m really curious how that is, in your words, not enough of a premise to conclude that KP says stupid things. What’s your take on that?

        If we apply Shrödinger’s equation in a philosophical level, KP is neither smart nor stupid unless proven otherwise (until an external factor confirms one is indeed greater than the other, both remains equal). If that’s your take on this, then fine. But the external factor here is KP herself through the use of media. Meaning, there is enough evidence to be certain of this articles’s main premise: KP’s not-so-smart words.

        So… What’s the correct premise, then? I’m genuinely curious because you haven’t given enough evidence to support your stand.

      • chuckrrr

        I’ll try to give you the short version. I don’t take most celebrities words so seriously. Most of these comments by her are flippant remarks during a conversation. She jokes around and finds humor comparing her situation to others in ridiculous ways. You have to really put your mind in a weird place to believe she puts in songs in a league with Ann Frank. It’s hyperbole used as humor. Same think with the skinning Japanese remark. And the fact that she doesn’t have the PC definition of feminism ready at the drop of a hat is a plus in my book. I don’t find any of her comments stupid and the fact that Olivia juxtaposes each comment with Katy making a goofy face doesn’t reinforce her argument. It shows Katy doesn’t take herself too seriously. A sign of intelligence to me. Her comments are quirky and unusual You find her comments to be foolish but I find many of the comments you and Olivia have made to be simple and not properly thought out And believe me I am not alone in that perception. The fact that you two pompously travel on shows your lack on empathy and self awareness. That doesnt make you a nad person. I bet your a wonderful person. But you can improve

      • FemelleChevalier

        Okay… So you’re saying that your criticism about how illogical this article is—with false premise and all that—hinges on the fact that you you find KP intelligent, which is a very subjective observation, despite the contrary opinions of others presented with similar evidence. In short, you presented a personal OPINION, which doesn’t hold merit if you didn’t present evidence that proves otherwise, and run with it while spewing pseudo-intellectual nonsense about false premise and false assumptions.

        Basically, you’re saying that YOUR opinion and only YOUR opinion is considered FACTUAL and is enough of a basis to ascertain one’s intelligence in an objective level of observation, right? So if it’s an opinion, then your whole argument is chock-full of irony and with no actual basis. And since you keep saying “irony”, then it’s Irony-ception which is tragically laughable.

        I got my answers now. Thanks for playing.

      • chuckrrr

        No you didn’t get anything I said .Either I’m bad at explaining (very possible) or your bad at understanding Either way lighten up.

      • FemelleChevalier

        I’m very chill, I’m just a wordy person. I guess with the vitriol and condescension you’re spewing, I’m hoping you’ll have a better, logical, and objective reasoning besides ad hominem attacks.

      • chuckrrr

        Take two condensations daily and one adhom before bed. There was some logic there FC. You just have to open your eyes and let the light in

      • FemelleChevalier

        Objective logic and subjective logic are too different things, chuckrrr. And it seems like you need to do your assignment on getting your points across clearly.

        Oh, and lay off the condescension pills lest you overdose.

      • chuckrrr

        Logic Is based on syllogisms which are constructed from premises and conclusions Subjectivity doesn’t enter in to it If your premises are not true your conclusion is likely to be false (but not always) I tried to show you some problems and some evidence. You think it’s all subjective. You want to be right so bad you won’t allow yourself the opportunity to see. Go back and read your comments before I even entered the conversation. You can honestly say your conversation didn’t overflow with condescension and subjective assumptions? My only goal after my initial uncontrolled need to ridicule was to see if I could got one soul to see from another perspective. I’m a failure at that.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Logic is complex and means a variety of things. If it can be justified by reasoning alone, it is logical as long as it follows a logical pattern. And if the reason relies on subjective view, it can be still logical since it is justifiable to an extent as long as it has some validity. Empirical evidence is based on collective data of experiences, which is inherently subjective. And yet, empirical evidence can be logical and can be a basis of objective findings is there’s an existing pattern present.

        Your argument relies on subjective points. Therefore, it IS subjective. Period. You answered with objective evidence on the second comment, but the foundation of your argument relies on the assumption that intelligence and personality/morals/work ethics are mutually exclusive. That, in itself, is a false premise. So, according to YOUR own logic, false premise will yield false assumptions of the context. Therefore, your argument about intelligence is false.

        I wasn’t being condescending when I asked you first, but I am now since you replied with your smug, condescending and insulting reply. And for you to attack me for being condescending is laughably ironic since you’re the one who initiated it. And yes, you failed massively at being both logical and civil in your intelligence argument.

        You want to be right so bad you won’t allow yourself the opportunity to see.

        Look at that, that’s my exact same sentiment when I read your vitriol-filled comments.

      • M_G

        Can we get you something? A coffee? A sandwich? Tiger blood? You name it. You definitely have earned something for displaying patience beyond which should be humanly possible (at least for me….I would have devolved into swears and petty insults about three comments ago).

      • chuckrrr

        You pipe down. This is way over your head.

      • M_G

        Words hurt, chuckrrr. Or, they would, if I valued your opinion or if you were even remotely close to being as intelligent as you clearly think you are.

      • chuckrrr

        I don’t think I’m any more intelligent than you MG

      • M_G

        Then, by your previous comment, you must think this conversation is over YOUR head, too. Therefore, as we are both woefully unqualified to speak on these matters, it would appear the only option is to defer to FemelleChevalier, yes?

      • chuckrrr

        It’s just a joke MG. I mean the part about it being over your head.

      • M_G

        Oh, no worries, chuckrrr. i consider all of your comments to be one big joke.

      • FemelleChevalier

        A tiger blood will do. Please and thank you!

      • chuckrrr

        Come on FC get over it . If I didn’t have some respect for you I wouldn’t continue this convo. When I’m talking about logic I’m referring to Aristotle’s discipline of deductive reasoning This is purely formulaic. Now there are disciplines known as inductive and abductive reasoning which is more like what your talking about. We have to use this form because it is simply not possible to use deductive reasoning for every conclusion. The formula would extend ad infinitum so we take short cuts…inductive reasoning. This is where we often make mistakes with false premisses. And this I tried to show you if you read in between the snark. At some point people have to get over who started something and look at people as people, not as the A#### that dissed me

      • M_G

        I would just like to point out that, while I have enjoyed this exploration into philosophic principles and the history of reason, you still have yet to actually provide concrete, un-biased evidence of KP’s intelligence. You have referenced this article and that interview, etc., and have offered your opinion that was formed based on those sources, just as Olivia did.

      • chuckrrr

        Olivia offered snark ,Played upon Katy’s pension for self deprecating humor (a good trait to most people), Took quotes out of context and used convoluted reasoning to find racism. I offered snark and followed it with some evidence. I also showed some of her fallacious assumptions. If I would have known I was going to type this much I would have listed them all. I thought they were pretty obvious

      • chuckrrr

        I think I’ve put quite a lot of time and effort into this already. I’m not going to provide 50 links to bolster my point They are there if you want to look. Just trying to see if I can plant a seed of doubt in some of you in some of your assumptions I guess not.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Inferring to deductive reasoning doesn’t make your logical fallacy correct, and throwing a dictionary definition doesn’t mean that it will support your argument. YOU opened a discussion about false premise and false assumptions, citing your opinions as infallible and an objective basis for measuring once intelligence. I say citing because your other comments implies that, and I was genuinely curious as to why and how.

        Common sense dictates that your argument should mirror your own logic, so I was asking you HOW it can be argued that KP is objectively intelligent if we used your own logic. Since what you presented is an argument that relies on false premise (which is ironic), your whole argument is therefore made invalid BY YOUR OWN LOGIC. Imagine that.

        I don’t agree with all the content of this article, but what I’m questioning is the legitimacy of your argument on intelligence. It has holes, chuckrrr, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to point it out.

      • chuckrrr

        If you got the impression that I was using my opinion as evidence then we have a misunderstanding. I do think she is intelligent but I base that on other sources….. people that know her .I discussed some of those people. They are not friends or people that work for her . That’s a series of empirical sources. Inductive reasoning as you suggested That’s a premise I base my argument on. And I gave some brief explanations where I thought I displayed the fallacy of some of Olivia’s assumptions. It’s hard to keep track of every thing I said I’m sure I’ve contradicted myself but that,s the core of my thoughts although I really don’t think I ever laid out a formal argument.B the way when did I say my opinion is infallible?

      • FemelleChevalier

        If you start your reasoning with “I think…” when you’ve clearly stated that false assumptions exists in the article, then there’s an implication that you’re holding your own opinions over actual evidence. Which makes your words contradictory and further discredits your points. Like I said, you need to work on getting your point clearly across.

        You did discuss, and I acknowledged that you did. But the crux of the whole argument itself is about KP’s intelligence. Olivia may have some false assumptions (according to you), but she presented a solid collection of data: the unintelligent things that came out of KP’s mouth. The empirical evidence you presented as a rebuttal encompasses only work ethics, which is not synonymous to intelligence and cannot be used as a quantifier. So I asked how the two correlates to one another, because it doesn’t if we consider that the whole premise of the article focuses KP’s unintelligent words, which CAN be objectively discussed if they’re smart or not.

        P.S. I think I need to cut this short. My rotations call.

      • chuckrrr

        FC THE”unintelligent things that came out of KP’s mouth” ain’t data. It’s opinion. That’s not objective. You seem to think people that agree with you are objective and disagreement is subjective. I gave you other peoples opinions who actually have experience with her. How much personal interaction do you think Olivia has had with her? I’m done trying to explain my argument to you; I’m not sure that your not purposely trying to misinterpret it. In In future if you want to critique someones argument use their words . You’ve paraphrased and selectively taken words and twisted them completely to another meaning.But probably in your mind….

        When men are most sure and arrogant
        they are commonly most mistaken, giving views to passion without that
        proper deliberation which alone can secure them from the grossest
        absurdities.”
        — David Hume.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Okay… You want formulaic? Let’s do this.

        A reasonable individual won’t substitute 1+1=2 (a+b=c) with a Pythagorean Theorem because the value already exist in it’s simplified form AND the two aren’t even remotely the same. But since you want to challenge it with a different equation that YOU said will yield the same value (c=2), you went ahead and used it anyways.

        So, the equation (according to you) would now be c = the square root of the sum of asquared and bsquared, with c=2. If that’s the case, then the answer would be c=1.4142, which isn’t equal to 2. Now, I asked you how it can be EQUAL if the outcome AND the equation is different from the initial equation.

        But, you still INSIST that the cin your Pythagorean Theorem is just as equal as the initial formula and that a+b=c as the simplified, uncomplicated and reasonable equation isn’t ENOUGH.

        Now, if you supply a different value of a and b, then it is possible for the c in Pythagorean Theorem to happen, and THAT is what I’m (and everyone else) asking YOU to supply. Because saying that c=2 and c=1.4142 is EQUAL won’t cut it without actual solution.

        This is the mathematical equivalent of how I see your logical reasoning. I don’t know about you, but math is my last resort to anything remotely logical because you can’t get any more logical than math.

      • chuckrrr

        Here’s your basic logical equation A=B and B=C therefore A=C. Youre conclusion being A=C So you see if A or B aren’t true then your conclusion might be wrong. I say might be wrong. Olivia’s premises are not true I gave some examples. I could have listed them in detail with links and explanations but I thught somebody here could open thier mid and take a second look at thier assumptions
        Here’s another…cultural appropriation is bad (implied by Olivia) That can be refuted easily by most people. Can you? Or are you to closed minded to think about it?

        How about believing in aliens is stupid { I don’t by the way} But do you think everyone that believes that is stupid. That’ a large percentage of the population. I don’t have such a low opinion of others.
        i could go on and on

      • FemelleChevalier

        Sorry, but your math doesn’t even compute and makes no sense in the context. It’s illogical, not even an analogy (which makes it a false equivalent of my math), and yeah, it’s ILLOGICAL.

        No, you’re still missing the point that Olivia presented actual evidence STRAIGHT from the source. Which, if we remove the added subjective view, is still FACTUAL because KATY PERRY ACTUALLY SAID THOSE THINGS. Don’t you get that simple idea?

        Now, you CAN agree at the Olivia’s ADDED SUBJECTIVE VIEW. And you are disagreeing! That is good because it’s your right and this is the internet! And it is still within reason provided that your reasoning is that you just DISAGREE (which is reasonable) and not that the whole article itself has false premise. Also, it will be within reason if only you didn’t start HEAVILY insinuating that YOUR VIEW is more credible than the rest. Because THAT makes your whole criticism SHAKY and ILLOGICAL because your argument has FALSE PREMISE in itself.

        Cultural appropriation IS an ADDED SUBJECTIVE VIEW on the article that you can AGREE OR DISAGREE on, which is heavily implied because it’s a SUBJECTIVE VIEW. That’s what the comment section is for, you dolt.

        For christ’s sake, can’t you even comprehend those simple logic without resorting to rhetoric and false equivalency? This is highschool logic, and I even used MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL OF MATH. JFC, this is my last reply. I need to sleep lest I get sued for endangering a patient and my CI won’t accept my reason that I was too busy debating with a dense, illogical person.

      • あおき にしの

        Forget it, FC. The monkey-typing moron doesn’t deserve to be treated like someone who is capable of fully understanding the simplest of logic. He needs to go back to school like Katy Perry should, so both of them can be taught math, analogy, and fucking logic.

      • chuckrrr

        Are you kidding me? I used mytocondical hypr transgeo cidal advanced logic (third level) and I proved my point completely. You can’t argue with that. Now I know you proved you point completely also. Although I’m not quite sure what it is other than that I’m wrong. If I agree that Katy made stupid statements which Olivia showed with data Which cannot be argued with because it’s data that she made statements and they are stupid shown by data then we can all move on

      • FemelleChevalier

        False. The data collected through the source is MORE accurate than the secondhand data gathered through the source of the source.

        So between you and Olivia, SHE has more credence than YOU because she presented ACTUAL quotes from the source, while you just presented (not really presented) biased sources because their SUBJECTIVE view will influence the authenticity of the data.

        You want to insert your tortured logic here and spout “intellectual” nonsense, so I’m giving you some “intellectual” nonsense back. According to Shrödinger’s equation, WE are neither right nor wrong unless we prove it. I’m proving mine, so how about yours?

        And I’m arrogant? Hey! Another irony, here!

      • chuckrrr

        Olivias unbiased? Your right…. you gave me some nonsense. What do you think you proved? Do you know what a premise is? look it up I wont even give you the benefit of calling your version of logic tortured. That’s too understated. Olivia gave some quotes and called them stupid. She gave some quotes…true. Calling them stupid….100% subjective. If you can’t understand that then there is no hope for you

      • FemelleChevalier

        The point of the article is to present a collection of data, which is factual in its own and unbiased in its purest form. Now, the commenters are readers will either AGREE or DISAGREE on the ADDED subjective view of the data gatherer (OLIVIA).

        If YOU disagreed on the reason that you find KP SUBJECTIVELY intelligent, it is neither right nor wrong since it’s an opinion. But that doesn’t make OTHER’S nor OLIVIA’S subjective view wrong either, but you INSISTED on it based on the idea that the article has a faulty premise.

        Now, I asked you HOW, and you give such faulty logic that is pretty much ILLOGICAL, BIASED, and based on SECONDHAND DATA with an addition of FAULTY PREMISE.

        I literally cannot understand how you can’t understand this simple logic which I repeatedly typed over and over again hoping that you’ll follow up with the correct and logical rebuttal. Just check my math because I’m done with your incomprehension.

        What a hypocrite… That is for YOU! You’re pathetic…

      • chuckrrr

        Calling hypocrite is not only lazy It’s also a strawman.

      • あおき にしの

        Your pseudo-intellectual bullshit lacks actual intelligence. You need to go to the library more to polish your “intelligent” argument. Or maybe go buy decent books instead of wasting your dollars buying mugs and plates with Katy Perry’s face on them.

      • chuckrrr

        Your pseudo-attempt to make a point is to be applauded by the other pompous asses that cant resist pseudo- strawmen because they cant actually make an argument.

      • chuckrrr

        Now FC my evidence for her intelligence is two fold. Observations…her sense of humor. I find anyone with a good sense of humor is usually pretty smart. Articles I’ve read…. I read an article in a trade magazine where executives were talking about her. They praised her work ethic and business instincts. She makes all her business decisions and they have learned to trust her. These execs said that she was unusual in the music industry. She runs a business that employs hundreds of people and she has branched out into cosmetic lines and he own record label. Then there is the dozens of charities she is personally involved in. She is the boss of all this. I know that’s not the picture you have of her so I don’t expect to convince you, but the evidence is there if you want to actually know.

      • FemelleChevalier

        My evidence for intelligence is actual manifestation of intelligence, but I’ll humor you. What you think means nothing and is not viable for actual evidence of intelligence. It is just a mere impression of what intelligence is to you, which is emphasized by you constantly repeating how she is intelligent to you. This, I’m afraid, doesn’t hold merit against an objective and measurable type of intelligence.

        Thinking of something is considered an opinion and opinion only, unless there are actual facts to back it up. Meaning, you’re no more better than the blogger who inserted her own opinions based on her subjective views. So why the condescension?

        No one here is saying that she is an inherently bad person nor makes poor choices in life and work. Contrary to what you’re assuming, intelligence and personality/morals/work ethics aren’t mutually exclusive. Your false premise and false assumptions against commenters and bloggers who objectively finds some of KP’s words as unintelligent is ironic seeing that that’s your whole argument and criticism.

      • あおき にしの

        Hahaha! That is fucking rich of you to say when you can’t even defend your fucking precious and nonexistent ~*premises*~. What’s next, calling on the diving power of a leprechaun riding a diamond unicorn?

      • chuckrrr

        In my business we have a technical term for people like you…. Moron….Trying to relate a thought to those such as yourself will always be difficult if not impossible

    • CJ

      Another example of one female hating on another for something insignificant. She’s human as are you. Lighten up.

      • Olivia Wilson

        This is a silly little post about how inane her comments usually come across. I’m not “hating” on her by pointing out the comments of hers that I think are stupid.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Also I don’t think it has anything to do with her gender! Or yours, for that matter.

      • Olivia Wilson

        Don’t you know that everything has to do with gender on the interwebz???

      • M_G

        “That is a very insightful, witty response. I like it because it will encourage critical thinking about this issue and…..wait, are those BREASTS?! Never mind.”

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Haaaahaha!

    • Lana

      Still way less annoying than Lorde.

      • Olivia Wilson

        I guess you’re right in that at least she doesn’t act holier than thou like Lorde seems to sometimes. Katy never actually claims to be super smart; Lorde MUST make you know that she is.

    • gi

      Well….you are a blogger and she is a world wide star. How dumb is she again?

      • Olivia Wilson

        Famous and dumb aren’t mutually exclusive.

      • FemelleChevalier

        If it was, then the Kardashians are probably a bunch of Mensa members.

    • chuckrrr

      There are 9 assassin comments in this article. And a tremendous amount of irony

      • Olivia Wilson

        What do you mean by “assassin comments”?

      • chuckrrr

        Well foolish, misguided , convoluted, illogical might be be better adjectives. But you used the term dumb so I thought ad homs were the order of the day. Here’s a clue for you. Just because someone doesn’t agree with your tortured logic doesn’t mean thier stupid. I don’t assume your stupid and I probably don’t agree with you on much

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Ugh, this is such a mercenary comment.

      • chuckrrr

        Well….I’m not to proud to admit that I don’t understand your comment.

      • M_G

        Unless you’re also too proud to scroll up a few comments, you really should be able to figure it out, chucky.

      • chuckrrr

        I see the light

      • FemelleChevalier

        I feel ya. I’m offended that Olivia didn’t add more parkour comments. Who does she think she is??

      • Olivia Wilson

        A disgrace, that’s what.

      • Alana Vincenza

        I think he meant “asinine” comments….though I prefer to read this as assassin comments as in NINJA comments. Well done on your ninja comments, Olivia.

      • Olivia Wilson

        You are the troll whisperer, Alana. Only use your talents for good.

    • Nbl

      Freakin History Channel! Stop showing Ancient Aliens, idiots start believing that crap.

      • Olivia Wilson

        But it’s reeeealllll, the sky people are reeealllll.

      • MCR

        They should be forced to stop calling themselves the History Channel. I’m serious.

    • M_G

      Olivia Magdelena Wilson! HOW DARE you be so bold as to express an opinion in a public forum that others disagree with! Think of the children! Think of the puppies and kittens! And while you’re thinking about that, go back to journalism school, stop hating on another woman, learn how to be funny, and fix that hole in the ozone layer. *drops mic*

      • Olivia Wilson

        Ugh, I am the creator of all unhappiness in the world. The only way that I can live with myself is I can’t.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Magdalena is killing me right now.

      • WDIRT

        You do realize that your sarcastic comment supports posting your opinion on a public forum and that everyone that disagrees with the views of the author of this article is within their right to do so, right?

      • M_G

        Indeed. What is your point?

    • MCR

      I don’t think she realizes how her words sound to other people. “I want to skin you and wear you like Versace” does not come across as adorable; it’s going to remind most readers of Silence of the Lambs.

      • Olivia Wilson

        OMG that’s exactly what it reminds me of! I couldn’t place it, but you’re spot-on.

    • Napoleon

      She seems like a closet racist..or overt depending on how you look at her performances.

      • chuckrrr

        Yes depending on how you look at it you can find racism in anything. The way I look at it I see no racism. But I haven’t been properly indoctrinated ….oops I mean educated..

      • Olivia Wilson

        But… she said that she wants to skin Japanese people and wear them like Versace. In what universe is that not racist?

      • chuckrrr

        Racism consists of both prejudice and discrimination based in social perceptions of biological differences between people.

        Her comment is a quite unusual way of expressing her love for the Japanese people. Skinning to my knowledge has no special relevance to Japan and the same with Versace. No it’s not racist unless it is now off limits for a white woman to use the word Japanese.

      • Olivia Wilson

        Fair point. It isn’t exactly racism, so I apologize for using that word in particular. But it isn’t okay in any way, either.

      • chuckrrr

        Olivia,
        Yea it’s totally OK but my respect for you did increase significantly for conceding that one point.

      • chuckrrr

        Here’s the weird thing Olivia. My guess is that Katy probably agrees with you and most of these commenters on 99% of the issues. I on the other hand will disagree on a lot of issues. But I have far more respect for her than any of you. I think it’s because she has the right views down but not the proper rhetoric. My conclusion is that symbolism over substance rules the day.

    • chuckrrr

      I wasted my time writing this rebuttal I was going to send it to the either but what the hell . I’ve spent more of my worthless time on this worthless subject. I’m disgusted with myself. Never again. Just a few of my problems with the article

      Olivia

      Here’s a thing that I didn’t know before today: Katy
      Perry dropped out of school in her
      freshman year of high school and now
      regrets doing so. And not to be a total jerk, but that
      sentence right there explains to me so many things.

      me
      Really …first of all she didn’t drop out she gt her GED in
      9th grade. Your probably not that dumb if you can do
      that in 9th grade And she did that to pursue her music
      career…in Nashville and a school for classic music

      Olivia
      Because homegirl is not smart.
      But, just like we
      can’t expect flawless reading skills from a person who only
      attends school for a few hours a day, we can’t exactly
      expect stone-cold genius from a person who stopped going to school
      altogether.

      me
      So if you stop going to school you loose intelligence.? Do I need to
      name some of the most successful people ever in science, business
      and computer technology that were dropouts

      Olivia
      According to an interview that Katy did with Yahoo!,
      she wishes that she’d spent more QT in the classroom when she
      was younger.

      “I’m kind of bummed at this stage that I didn’t
      have a great education because I could really use that these
      days.”

      That is indeed correct, Katy. Being smarter overall is one
      of the ways that you could avoid being made fun of by everyone
      each time that you open your mouth.

      Katy continues, citing her parents’ constant moving as the
      reason that she missed a lot of school before she had even
      formally dropped out.

      Olivia
      “I was being pulled out of school even in the
      middle of school and sometimes being home-schooled. Sometimes we
      were sent to these really half-Christian, half-education,
      I-don’t-know-what-they-were schools.”

      me
      Here’s a star with tremendous influence on young people
      promoting education and you rip her This is what we ask our stars
      to do. She knows shell get ripped by people like you and she still
      does it Pretty impressive

      Olivia
      1. On her private thoughts becoming public:

      “I wasn’t stereotyping anyone in particular, I
      was talking about ex-boyfriend. All these songs are very personal,
      they’re straight out of a “dear diary” situation…[but] my
      Anne Frank is now being exposed to the world.” – TheNewGay.net

      Are you SURE that you’d like to compare your voluntary
      release of pop music to any of the number of struggles faced by
      Anne Frank? Are
      we positive that that has never gone badly ever before?

      me
      She wasn’t comparing herself to Ann Frank. You know just because you
      mention two things in the same sentence doesn’t mean your
      equating them. Unfortunately I would guess that a lot if not most
      people now days don’t even know who Ann Frank is….so she’s ahead
      of a lot on that.

      Olivia
      3. On racism and cultural appropriation:

      “I guess I’ll just stick to baseball and hot
      dogs, and that’s it. I know that’s a quote that’s gonna come
      to fuck me in the ass, but can’t you appreciate a culture? I
      guess, like, everybody has to stay in their lane? I don’t know.”
      – to Rolling
      Stone

      This one feels like she just shrugged her shoulders and
      said, “Alright already, I know
      I am an idiot!”

      me
      It’s possible that like me she
      thinks this whole issue is nonsense. Unless your purposely trying
      to demean there’s nothing wrong. In fact appropriation leads to
      societal growth. The stones and the Beetle appropriated from Muddy
      Waters. Impressionist artists appropriated oriental art and on and
      on and on

      Olivia
      4. On her “type” of guy:
      “I guess I happen to be attracted to
      high-frequency men.” – to Cosmopolitan
      Pretty sure that
      doesn’t mean what she thinks it means.

      me
      She doesn’t want to
      talk about these relationships. They are very painful to her. She
      trys to offer a flippant remark to deflect. You can’t understand
      that can’t you?

      Olivia
      6. On feminism (again):
      “I used to not really understand what that word
      meant but now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a
      female and I also love men. I am woman… Hear me roar!” –
      on The
      Today Show

      I am afraid that Katy
      will never understand the definition of feminism.

      me
      I can assure you she knows the
      politically correct view of feminism. Some of her best friends are
      radical feminists .I mean radical. ( well maybe not to you Olivia) Maybe she just doesn’t agree with them. I hope
      so

      Olivia
      7. On nudity in pop culture:

      “It’s such a strange world. Like females in pop —
      everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before but
      I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed.” –
      to NPR

      Ahh, the
      great and wholesome Katy Perry who is always covered from
      neck-to-toe and never sells sex.

      me
      She doesn’t show much now. She could exploit her obvious assets much more She’s actually pretty PG13 now

      • J.R.

        Wow, I didn’t even need to read this post to know you are a total troll who has to analyze every word you see on the Internet. This site is great and so are the mods and all of their articles. Get a life.

      • chuckrrr

        Nice to see you’ve done the same level of research as the rest of these clowns. They’ve got every flavor of koolaid here

      • chuckrrr

        Also if you define a troll as someone that calls out articles like this nonsense then yes I’m a troll. However if you define a troll as someone that makes a comment of no value to anyone only for the purpose to insult then …….can you figure it out?

      • J.R.

        Geez. You are taking this article and the comments way too seriously.

      • chuckrrr

        probably

      • Olivia Wilson

        Hey, thank you!

    • WDIRT

      So people aren’t allowed saying dumb things from time to time? I’m pretty sure if we had people analyzing every little thing we say we would all under Olivias guidelines for Katy Perry be deemed “dumb”. So you found 9 instances where Katy Perry made terrible judgement in her words, yet I’m sure you could find a hundred more where she says something uplifting or positive and intelligent that would actually benefit other people instead of pointing out her mistakes. Why couldn’t you just point out people’s more positive aspects then focus on their mistakes. I’m sure Olivia you have probably made some mistakes like Katy yet yours aren’t publicized for the world to see; then to have them thrown back at you to try and make you feel bad about yourself or have people laugh at you, or worse have people publicly agree with them on your intelligence level.
