Isaiah's hilarious The World Today Just Nuts "Little Dicky Loves Bad Boys" went up yesterday. I love it. Also my "Kat's Korner: Demos, live and what the fans want" went up Wednesday as well.
I've shared my thoughts on the awful Katy Perry. For reasons no one knows, Paramount has decided to release a film about her. Rich Juzwiak (Gawker) has the low down on the awful film:
The 90-minute, needlessly 3D documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me is a fantastic document of how guarded our superstars come in 2012. There's more revealed about Madonna in a single snort or eye roll in 1991's Truth or Dare than there is Katy Perry in the entirety of Part of Me. We learn that being a famous singer is Perry's childhood dream come true, that her goal is to make people smile, that she's not yet ready for kids. The biggest revelation is that she looks fantastic out of makeup, and if the words in her Proactive commercial are true, even that shouldn't come as a surprise. No warts at all.
Perry is the blandest of pop's current heavyweights, a mediocre, Alanis Morissette-influenced singer and decent hook crafter who peddles individuality via the day-glo wigs that everyone else is wearing and whose 2011 tour (profiled in Part of Me) gathers its influence from The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and Candyland. "How can you be too cartoony?" she asks as she's trying out costumes for the show. It serves as an inadvertent statement on her unidimensionality.
It's so artificial that it comes off that way even in the trailer. I bet before her divorce and several months ago, it would have done better. As a summer film, who's going to see it? The young girls want some guy to look at. Young lesbian girls want some attractive girl to look at. And no boy -- straight or gay -- will be caught dead buying a ticket.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
