  2. 2

    Popular song does not always = Grammy nomination. Grow up Katy.

  6. 6

    she isn't that good..
    in fact.. she sucks
    she has only one hit and mmm no, not a good one

  7. 7

    One Hit Wonder! Next year , Katy who ?

  8. 8

    she should be snubbed

  9. 9

    A hit song does not equal talent. "I Kissed a Girl" is a novelty.

  10. 10

    That's hilarious!

  11. 11

    I can't find a blog post anyway. And is she seriously doing a movie?? or is that for a video?

  12. 12

    What does she expect? She's talentless.

  13. 13

    her album was a huge let down…..
    maybe she should have recorded some of those tracks she gave to Miley….because "one of the boys" sucked sooo hard!

  14. 14

    shes a dumbass for making that awful song and those retarded comments about scarlett and miley just for attention

  15. 15

    She should be grateful that she even got one. Get over yourself, dear. No one will remember you this time next year.

  17. 17

    There's no blog post

  18. 18

    Whiny bitch.

  19. 19

    Oh BOO FUCKING HOO Katey Perry! Go cry on a bag of money or something, kd lang who is VASTLY more talented than ALL of the Best New Artist category got NOTHING! That is a TRAVESTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. 20

    Grammy's aren't an international award show…she isn't deserving of a grammy…

  21. 21

    Just be happy, you are a OneHit Wonder, Katy!

  22. EatMe says – reply to this


    Oh please. One hit and she deserves a grammy? I think not!

  23. 23

    she's lucky she got one nomination. she didn't get shafted at all. she got lucky. one hit, no matter how big of a hit, is still ONE hit song. She shouldn't have expected to even get that one nomination. She's not been around long at all…and people with much more credits to their names and much bigger songs have been actually snubbed by the grammy's before, she was not snubbed at all. boo hoo. only one nomination. think she may need a reality check.

  24. 24

    BAD LOSER and a complete BIG HEAD tbh!
    She was not shafted.

  25. 25

    Wow. I think her response is childish and embarrassing. I agree with the others–one hit song does not equal a Grammy. She should be honored to have been nominated for one Grammy. She is coming across as being egotistical, naive, and babyish. I am even less of a fan than I was previously, if that's even possible. She reeeeally needs to get over herself.

  26. 26

    dude… i know she's your friend and all, but her music is not going to go down in the history books. she is fun music, not serious music. she is not grammy material. sorry.

  27. 27

    Uhm, just because her song was a huge ass hit, doesn't mean it's Grammy material.

  28. 28

    boo f'ing hoo she's fluff 5 yrs from now no one will know who she is

  29. 29

    Outside of those fabulous tits, what is her talent exactly?

  30. 30

    PEREZ - wake up and smell the SHIT that is Katy Perry (what a STUpID name btw)… doesn't this FINALLY prove to you that all of us commenters are right and that she obviously SUCKS ass bigtime!

  31. 31

    she didn't deserve that one NOM!

  32. 32

    Sorry, but a hit song does not indicate talent. Katy Perry has no business being in music- bad voice, worse lyrics, and a complete novelty act. I can't believe she even got one nomination.

  33. 33


  34. 34

    She WAS snubbed, BIG-TIME…Was it because of the "controversial" nature of "I Kissed A Girl?"… :(

  35. 35

    her blog SUCKS too… wtf is it all about? she needs to have someone go in and fix that crap cause it's a disaster, just like her. then again, what's the point? i doubt anyone even reads that stupid thing anyway.

  36. 36

    Unfortunately, I don't think ANY of the music out today is Grammy worthy.

  37. 37

    Yeah I don't get why she wasn't included…raw deal. Keep going, Katy! You rock!

  38. 38

    Looks like someone came to their senses and removed it.

  39. MissT says – reply to this


    I never really understood the whole Katy Perry thing. I don't know if she is an egotistical bitch, or just acts like one but many people see through her. How much do you think of yourself to actually think you deserve to sweep the Grammy's then to actually go public to bitch when you didn't get but 1 nomination. I mean come on, many of us would be so excited with only 1 nomination. People need to start appreciating what they have, and where they came from instead of feeling as better than everyone else. It's the Christmas season, time to realize it's not all about YOU!

  40. 40

    what a friggen' moron.

    can't believe she thinks she has the right to call out how she got snubbed.
    leave that to the experts sweetie, just like those that wrote your song for you, and those that paid big bucks to get it put onto gossip girl to brainwash the teenyboppers.

    who is she kidding?
    she's got too big of an ego for not nearly enough talent (or attractiveness!… that face - that special-needs deer in the headlights look… no no!)

  41. 41

    Better luck next time whiny. Grammy's made the right chocie!

  42. 42

    Ashley Simpson had a really big song a few years ago and didn't get a grammy nomination…what is her point? She sucks. Grammy's are for people who have talent which I think has been forgotten for the past few years. Hopefully this is the turning of a new leaf for the grammy people. The fact that Patty Griffin has never won a grammy is disgusting.

  43. Lene says – reply to this


    i agree.
    She sucks. just trying to become a 'icon'

    also, since the grammy's is about GOOD music, why is the jonas brothers AND Katy Perry even nominated.

  44. 44

    She needs to deflate her sense of her accomplishments to date.

    This is an industry award. A PEER and ELDER award. Not the People's Choice. The Academy considers public response, but they also consider craft and quality. And because it's sort of political, they consider the ongoing input of craft and quality prior to the act making a breakthrough.

    This is why the other artists and in particular the Jonas Brothers got it. They may not get a lot of respect from the general public, but they all do great work and have done this in a sustained way. PROFESSIONALS can tell this sort of thing.

    It's not a popularity contest, or about album sales. Everyone knows the masses will buy into crap. Hence Britney's success. Get over it, Perry & Perez!!

  45. Wytch says – reply to this


    She had one hit song… so what? No one will remember her this time next year.

  46. 46

    Re: KerrForThree – Haha. Keep telling yourself that. It wasn't "controversial", it was homophobic and dishonest and lame.

  47. Lene says – reply to this


    Re: ShakeYourkitty

    She didn't GIVE songs to Miley :P
    She recorded them for the studio. Like a sample for those who might wanna record it can listen to it. :D
    hehe, Katy doesn't write anything.

    besides, she should be happy she got a nomination. get over yourself Katy. outside the us, no one knows you…except those who goes on perezhilton.. which includes me. ;)

  48. 48

    Re: castinggirl – I agree. I am annoyed that she got the one undeserved nomination.

  49. 49

    Is it supposed to mean she was "Shafted" cause all I saw was the poster for the movie "Shaft" on her blog. Guess so. There's been several one hit wonders get Grammy's in the past - so there's probably more to her not being nominated.

  50. 50

    OMG Katy Perry doesn't deserve any grammy nominations! she should be fucking ecstatic that she got one fucking nod. I mean I'm not saying she's not good. Im just saying I don't think the singer of "I Kissed a Girl" should expect a lot of adulation. You wanna talk about a SNUB how about Taylor Swift, who wasn't nominated at all!

  51. 51

    ONE hit song does not equal a Grammy. The song was a novelty, just like Weird Al's music. She isn't really that good, Perez. I know she's your friend, but she's not really going to go anywhere unless she starts rapping. LOL>

  52. 52

    She didn't get the nomination because she didn't deserve the nomination. In fact, the one nomination she did get proves how absurd the Grammys are. Her one "hit" is a rip-off of Jill Sobule. Katy Perry is 15 years too late with this lame attempt at causing a controversy. She should have realized that when the only people to be offended by the song were her parents.
    Her voice is horrible. Her lyrics are childish (hot / cold, yes / no, in / out, up / down … Wow! What fucking talent!). Her entire shtick has been done.

    The sooner she leaves the industry, the better.

  53. 53

    wish katy perry would just go away

  54. 54

    Katy Perry is not original, so it didn't surprise me.

    But she should be happy. The Grammy's SUCK!.. They know nothing about good music. Everyone should listen to the Indie scene. That's where its at!

  55. 55

    Aren't grammys for talented people? A catchy pop song is not talent.

  56. 56

    I think Katy Perry WAS IN FACT ROBBED! Katy is extremely talented i love her music!! She has more talent that some who were nominated for 6 grammys …*cough cough* kayne west that taletless full of crap scumbag

  57. 57

    Avril lavigne had a #1 song last year with "girlfriend" should she have been nominated? with that said the grammy's are a joke, heres a list of artists who NEVER won a grammy: the doors, the grateful dead, buddy holly, queen, the who, the kinks, led zeppelin, bob marley, diana ross and neil young.

  58. 58

    Re: GrlBhvingBadly – agreed! well, at least not any of the music that the masses have heard about.

  59. 59

    so i don't get it.. is she showing a movie poster from shaft because that's what she believes she got?

  60. 60

    I'm so happy for her Grammy nomination! She's gonna win!

  61. 61

    Re: Lene

    Katy co-wrote every song on "One of the Boys" and wrote 3 by herself. :)

  62. 62

    She's so talented. I'm sure she's very excited as well and appreciates the nomination very much.

  63. 63

    Dude.. she had ONE hit song. That's it! Get the fuck over it!

  64. 64

    Re: thecoolestbitch – Her album was too late to be in contention. As for her singles, meh. I agree with the Academy. She's not THAT great, definitely not original. She's just the new, unoriginal blonde American country sweetheart. Fine that is talent and she deserves the love, but it's nothing particularly groundbreaking. I'd rather listen to old Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline records.

  65. 65

    LMAO she has no talent Perez. WOW she had a hit song, cool. So did a BUNCH of one-hit wonders. She didn't deserve any nominations, so she should be thankful she got ONE.

  66. 66

    Re: Lene – Well, I know lots of people don't get the Jonas Brothers, and I agree they the Disney thing is cause for suspicion and the fact that they are everywhere is annoying, whatever. But someday more people will appreciate what they do.

    Their songcraft is tight and they do a lot of interesting genre-blending and bring it to the younger generation in a glossy pop package and they buy into it because they are cute…those kids don't even necessarily appreciate the quality underneath, but they are going to grow up with the musical bar set higher.

    They also get kids interested in all of the music they say inspires them and then they buy more records and go see more shows. And they're already producing other artists. I think they're going to stimulate the industry in a lot of ways.

    Just answering your question. ;)

  67. 67

    I really can't believe she got a nomination in the first place…

  68. 68

    I personally love Katy, and think she deserved a Best New Artist nomination. Her album is a lot more than just I kissed A Girl. She's an amazing song writer and has an incredible voice. GO KATY!!

  69. 69

    Perez I disagree with you, I definitely don't think Katy was worth getting tons of Grammy Awards this year and she definitely is not Best New Artist material. Yes, I kissed a girl was a smash world-wide hit but look at the bigger picture. You said Jonas shouldn't have been nominated when they had a huge year with the album and singles and the sold out tour. They shouldn't win the award but its much more justified than Katy getting nominated. Personally I think she is overrated.

  70. 70

    Please get over your love affair with her. Her music sucks, and she always looks like she is tripping on acid. I can't stand to look at her big bug eyes, her clownish make up and ridiculous outfits. At least the other sucky female artists are plaesant to look at.

  71. 71

    Katy Perry + Perezito swinging in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G….

  72. 72

    basically that would be because she is not grammy worthy

  73. 73

    What talent? The Grammys aren't for people like her.

  74. 74

    well gee, she has no talent. She doens't even deserve one nom.

  75. 75

    She looks one step away from a heroine overdose and her music sucks ass. I can't stand people who make that novelty music bullshit.

  76. 76

    The link is a pic of her on her knees kissing a dog.

    I don't think she's been snubbed enough

  77. adt says – reply to this


    Just because she has an "international hit" doesn't mean it's good. Because Katy Perry actually sucks. And the fact that people listen to her music means that there are millions of fucking dumbasses out there who don't know what music is. The Grammy's suck anyway

  78. 78

    I absolutely hate her by what i see! Her and travis havent been dating the 2 years you say perez… i know travis, i havent seen him in along time though, but i really cant see why he loves her… he is such a good guy, he was dating a girl 1 year ago that he should have stayed with she was cute nice and polite, and didnt act like an idiot and act like she was gods gift to earth!

  79. 79

    The more you overrate yourself, the less you'll last in time. She must learn that lesson, she's incredibly pretentious: but who does she think she is? An "artist"? A "musician"? What, exactly?

  80. 80

    I couldn't see the blog post for some reason? Hmm.. But, anyway. I actually really like Katy, her music was catchy and different from most stuff you hear now days. I was pretty shocked she didn't get more nominations since she's had 2 big hits out already…"Ur so gay" was a good song and was the first song, but didn't get that well known, so that's why I only say 2 (" I kissed a girl" and "Hot 'n cold" my favorite song on the album.) Hey she got Madonna's approval though, so what more do you need?!

    And I don't care what anyone says popular songs can get nominated…example Lil Wayne…Ok, "Lollipop?" I did not care for that song, but have liked some of his other stuff (mostly when he was singing with someone else.)…but come on? That song was popular and it got nominated.

    A lot of singers don't get nominated right away..Look at Cyndi Lauper. She had a big hit with "Girls Just want to have fun" but didn't get any true recognization from the music biz until she came out with "Time After Time." Katy's music themes are pretty much on the level of "Girls Just Want to Have fun." at the moment..Maybe by her next album she will get more noticed. Being nominated is nice, but it isn't everything. She's progress more.

    I do have to admit though…as much as I love Katy….she does suck when she sings live….Eeeek..Ok I said it…:/

  81. 81


  82. 82

    I think she should of got snubbed, "I Kissed A Girl' sucks! I never understood why the song made it so big? And she really ruined her image, for me anyway, when she said publicity, "I'm a role model for teenaged girls everywhere." She dresses like a prostitute and acts like one too!!!!!!!

  83. 83


  84. 84


  85. 85

    Grammy's are for people with staying power and talent. If the grammy's were like any lame teen choice awards then yeah she'd sweep. But the grammy's are THE biggest thing for the music world. In other words…there has to be some class involved. Sorry but Katy Perry is lame, like others have said she's a novelty act. Next year at this exact same time we'll have no clue who she is.

  86. 86

    maybe she was snubbed cause she's gimmicky and sucks???? yup thats it!!
    now alicia keys and mariah carey being snubbed- THATS ridiculous

  87. 87

    if u remember camel toe was a big song a few years ago- theres a diff between being popular for a gimmick- and good music- she was popular for a gimmick- and out of 86 comments only 3 people agreed with her blog hahahahahaa
    and all three were prob her- grow up and get over it- desperate.

  88. 88

    all i see is a picture of her and a dog

  89. 89

    She doesn't even really deserve best new artist, oh she kissed a girl and she liked it and then wrote a song….yay. so she should be thankful people are even listening to her songs and that she even got a nomination.

  90. 90

    Re: GamerMom – Me too - WTF Perez? Did she take the post down?

  91. 91

    One hit wonder does not Grammy make Perez. Get over it, she didn't deserve.

  92. 92

    i love her.

  93. 93

    Im glad she didnt get a grammy nom.
    Shes not good on a studio recorded track.
    and she fucking SUCKS live.

  94. 94

    I hope she reads these comments. haha

  95. 95

    I love Katy…and if she sucked as bad as you all say she wouldn't have even gotten one nom! Congrats Katy!!

  96. 96

    I can't stand Katy Perry, she is so annoying. Her music is lame also. It will be Katy who? by next year.

  97. 97

    perez, the grammys honor CREATIVITY not POPULARITY!

    her song may have been popular, but the lyrics were simple and and not very deep at all!!

  98. 98

    Re: Lene – she definitely at least co wrote every song on her album, and wrote three of the songs herself. which are my favorites. :]
    and im pretty sure people know who she is. my mom knows who she is. ;D
    and katy hosted the europe music awards, sooo…

  99. 99

    When will she take that piece of shit song of hers, and crawl back into the stinky hole she came out of?

    So sick of hearing about her.

  100. 100

    I am sick of girls 'pretending' to be lesbians for attention.
