White people everywhere are tired of hearing about “cultural appropriation.” So what if my favorite pop star Katy Perry is wearing cornrows in her new video?! The only thing that is keeping racism alive is people of color talking about racism!
Well, I’m here to debunk all of the whitesplained myths about cultural appropriation, and to tell you why it is indeed racist for Katy Perry to dress up as a geisha or to have large butt mummies dancing ... Read More

The so-called feminist magazine, Playboy, recently published an article written by a dude who argued that Neko Case is, “too smart—and frankly too old—to be one of those shiny young pop starlets who sing about love with superficial life-or-death stakes."
Earth to everyone; she is not a commercial pop star. So, why compare her to the likes of Katy Perry or Beyoncé?
The problem with the article is ... Read More

Katy Perry just changed her mind about feminism. Or maybe she’s been inspired by her UK counterpart Lily Allen, who also has something to say about the word. Or, did Hollywood finally make a Feminist Theory class a requirement? Doubtful, considering Perry’s track record with cultural appropriation, sexual objectification and reinforcement of fetishes. I’m starting to think that feminism is just good for publicity or something...After ... Read More
Katy Perry isn’t necessarily known for her modesty. On her candy-coated Teenage Dream cover, she posed naked amongst fluffy pink clouds. On occasion, she’s also been known to shoot whipped cream out of her bra. But the increase in female nudity in pop has her concerned.
In conversation with NPR’s Scott Simon, the singer said, “females in pop-- everybody’s getting naked [...] I’ve been naked before but I ... Read More

The hyped up new Katy Perry Album Prism dropped today following an IHEARTRADIO concert that streamed live on Yahoo last night. The pop star's previous record had five number 1 hits. No matter what you think of Prism, you can’t deny that Katy Perry is definitely doing something right.
At first listen, I’m not enamored with Prism. The tracks and the production on Prism are so similar that it is hard to differentiate between the songs. ... Read More
Kathy Griffin is far from subtle; seriously, you don’t want to get on her bad side. The saucy comedian will skewer anyone who crosses her with her quick wit and biting tongue. Turns out, she won’t only stick up for herself. Womankind, Kathy Griffin has our backs.
And who has crossed some awesome lady celebs this week? No surprise: Perez Hilton. We all know about that time he totally violated Ke$ha’s privacy by posting intimate ... Read More

In what parallel universe does a woman publicly apologize to a man who threatens to beat her up and make her “suck skin off" his dick?
Our universe, apparently. And as an added bonus, this woman is Katy Perry, idol to millions of teenage girls.
After Perry tweeted “Just heard a new song on the radio called "I hate being sober" I now have serious doubt for the world,” the song's artist, Chief Keef (real name Keith Cozart) decided to respond. The rapper ... Read More

Love her or hate her, everyone has to admit that Katy Perry always seems to be ON POINT with her nails. Most recently she has me (and scores of her fans) wishing for a personal fingernail artist with the photo she tweeted of her Daria inspired manicure.If you don’t know who Daria is we can’t be friends. Just kidding, but please go on YouTube right this second and watch an episode; you won’t be disappointed (though you might be hooked.)
