    fuck you katy perry. your a dumb bitch if its a personal thing then keep it to yourself



  2. 2

    Katy and Rihanna best friends:) Katy Perry talk about Rihanna:She says she would love to collaborate with Rihanna and loves everything about her. I would love to see these two singers to duet! That would be a massive song…PEREZ enough to drive on RiRi



  3. 3

    All she did was talk out of her ass and she is a lying, scared sack of my little pony, bra stuffing shite.



  4. 4

    WHO CARES ABOUT WHAT THIS LOOSER SAYS.



  5. 5

    Like her new song with Snoop… LISTEN TO JEAN-LUC KING BROWN MYSPACE NEW ARTIST



  6. 6

    She explained herself well.
    Using religion in graphic scenes is just screaming out for attention.
    Even if Katy said "i hate that fugly bitch Gaga"
    that would still be perfectly fine because everyone can have their own opinion ..so stop attacking people for not liking Gaga you dumb fuck!.
    Im glad she mentioned Madonna because we have all seen those things before ..from Madonna. If we want to see it again we can youtube her.Theres no need to remake all of her music videos. Aren't you always bitching about movies from the 80's being remade ?? and how people aren't coming up with their own idea..same thing needs to be said about Gaga and her Madonna rip-offs..oops i mean Gaga's Madonna "tributes" as delusional Gaga fans call it.



  7. 7

    She seems nice. BUT get to the effing point. I guess everyone want to bring down our legendary Mommy monster.



  8. 8

    Amen! If this is over then i'm glad with that. This "scandal" was really silly. It was just her thoughts…



  9. 9

    she looks so much better without a shit ton of makeup on



  10. 10

    Not buying it. She shouldn't judge others and their art. She must realize that her experiences with religion may be vastly different than others experiences. Also, some people simply don't agree with religion period and they deserve to have a voice on how hypocritical religion can be.



  11. 11

    lol. She looks confused when they r speaking french (:



  12. 12

    Is this a discrimination? Where the hell is mu post?



  13. 13

    What exactly does Katy Perry do? I know she sings a little…hmmm…not really a huge star is she



  14. 14

    I'm not a Gaga or Madonna fan but Katy Perry is being really unfair, singing about Kissing a Girl isnt very christian of you… neither does posing half-naked with your Jesus tatoo… so please stop judging others if you dont want to be judged…



  15. 15

    Well i prefer Katy over Gaga any day. She's so much classier and preetier than Gag Gag.



  16. 16

    They're all fucking morons. Gaga's stanky ass included.



  17. 17

    I guess what she meant to say is that using spirituality and sex do not really make sense or mix. We all know she hated the video and so did millions but that's just an opinion of choice. Just like Perez likes to get it in the ass some do and some don't. Everyone is different so lets just move on and yes I still think the Gaga's Alejandro video sucked.



  18. 18

    whatever. lol you weren't directing it at GaGa but it just so happens that you tweeted about it on the same day as her video release…. hmmmm. this bitch is dumb.

    p.s. Lily Allen is way more talented then you, you should consider this next time you try and compare yourself to her. I'd rather listen to a "chubby" Lily Allen any day compared to a skinny bitch.

    -xoxo

    Re: boogaboo
    There is NOTHING wrong with judging other people. If we didn't judge, voice our own opinions, then pop stars like Katy Perry and Gaga would still be singing in smokey bars. They judge in their songs - it's OK to judge. People don't like being judged as it shows, heaven forbid, that there is more then one opinion. And in this case, it either helps or hinders $ale$.



  20. 20

    Well said Katy!!! That's why I love her so much!! She is sincere…She didn't say anything bad about Lady Gaga in the first place! Katy has never stopped saying how much she admires Gaga! She is one of her biggest fans!She said it!I really hope that "controversy", that Perez started, to stop for good!!



  21. 21

    LOSER…AND DOES SHE HAVE A FAKE BRITISH ACCENT GOING ON?? I THINK SHE DOES A BIT.



  22. 22

    I think one of the biggest problems with christianity is the need to seperate spirituality from sexuality. Sexuality is a natural part of life and this forced seperation will always cause problems. Katy Perry doesn't come off as smart or enlightened here and completely hypocritical as she herself stated.

  23. Emery says – reply to this


    23

    By the way, that's not a French radio station, it,s a Canadian one.
    There are people on this planet who speaks French but do not live in France, dumbass. Check your sources already.



  24. 24

    Bah, she is just jealous that she doesn't have the guts to do what GaGa is doing. Is funny how suddenly some stars that nobody heard of in a while are suddenly rising up because of their trash talks to GaGa. Really, I had no idea who M.I.A. was until I read a note of her talking about GaGa, then I listened to her music and it was the worst stuff I have ever heard. And Grace Jones???? I only knew her because of that James Bond film… so, I think its envy, they want half the fame GaGa has. Xtina had to apologize of her stupid comments (remember when she called GaGa a newbie?) because she realized GaGa is TODAY and people love GaGa. So, all these artists should shut up and continue their business.

  25. Kate! says – reply to this


    25

    I really liked her answer! I liked the comparison she made about Lady Gaga and Russell..she said that Russell does things that she disagrees with, but she is still Russell's fan!The same happens with Lady Gaga..Katy wanted to explain that even though the people she loves sometimes make things that she wouldn't do, but she still loves and supports them!
    It's obvious that Katy still admires Gaga…so chill out little monsters!!! :)



  26. 26

    Fuck lady GAGa and her fucking ego too.



  27. 27

    Re: boogaboo – don't confuse art with a blatant attempt at calling attention to yourself by ripping someone else's shit off years later (i.e. gaga ripping off madonna)….and just because you don't agree with religion, doesn't mean you need to attack it in such a manner…..equating a song about kissing a girl to the attack that hanging on a cross or shoving a rosary in your mouth portrays is just ridiculous…..i love madonna and i love controversy and she had a message behind what she did when she did it (minus the recent hanging on the cross business)….gaga's message is that she is unoriginal and has to consistently rip off madonna, meanwhile her ass clown perez is bashing everybody and their mother acting as though gaga is the mold and everybody else is just trying to fit in



  28. 28

    Katy Perry is a very intelligent young woman. She presents herself very well in interviews. Very respectful too. Unlike Lady GaGa who is about as interesting as a rock.



  29. 29

    Re: blahblah12 – Wow, you are as inspisd and as stupid as Perry, which means your IQ is lower than poo. controversial is a cheap trick to generate hype. So is flashing cleavage. When the competition is songs like "California Gurl", even Lady Gaga can start looking deep and complex by comparison.

    Re: lovekatyperry – You are severely uneducated.



  30. 30

    She explained herself very well!! She has nothing against Lady Gaga!She is one of her biggest fans!!!! I knew it! She just had a different viewpoint because of her background and pastor parents…Good for you Katy!
    And she was right…Russell does some bad things that she doesn't like, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't support him!!



  31. 31

    Re: lovekatyperry – Oh bah bah goo goo, good Katy Perwee fan wants da bad fighting to stop so know one will hate da child molester approved Candyland video. bah bah goo goo.



  32. 32

    Wow~Katy Perry's comments here not only inarticulate, but very evasive and allude to something I was suspecting. "Spirituality and sexuality are two separate things and then when you decide to, like, put them into the same subject, it gets interesting": Really Katy? Really? Because the Catholic church just talks about 'spiritual' things and never tries to influence rights legislation about birth control or the basic civil rights of the LBGT community, I guess, is 'like' what she's saying here. Or, perhaps my paraphrase has too much content because Katy completely dumped more mud in the water. Choose a side Katy. Don't spew out passive-aggressive vitriol and then retreat to the safety of your valley girl facade. Or read a book, or a newpaper, or even perhaps a cereal box label before you make comments about things that destroy other people's lives. I suggest reading the Amendments to our constitution before you allude to the promotion of curtailing the rights of others to critique institutions that deny people their basic secular rights as citizens.



  33. 33

    But, to the real issue here: Russell Brand's new film Arthur has a revised script. For all the hullabaloo about it not living up to the original, the rumor is is that it has currently been modified so that the father of the rich fiancee is a religious nut. Hmmm. Well, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life" I suppose as a great man once said. I for one can't wait for Katy to be ushered into her Valley of the Dolls, Diary of a Mad Housewife stage of life by her very lost husband. And shame on you Perez. You should be all over this instead of bullying younger girls for saying much less than this thoughtless, prejudiced white noise maker.



  34. 34

    "kinda like, I don't know, a little bit like not something I would do you guess…."

    She is so incredibly uneducated. As Lady Hetty Green put it: Part of religious tolerance involves accommodating freedom to constructively judge religion, and even if those critiques are too sophisticated for you to comprehend stupid Katy, they simply do not constitute blasphemy. Blasphemy is more like tattooing Jesus on your hand and holding that as some sort of talisman to ward off the fact that you're not staying true to your values. Go back to the 700 Club you narrow hipped skank.



  35. 35

    Re: Kate! – Oh, yeah, like chill, bah bah goo goo! Ya know like?



  36. 36

    madonna alreday did it all before. shes the genious here. gaga sucks



  37. 37

    in this case, in the night of your weeding your husband should take you to your father's door and stone you to death if you're not a virgin, just like your lovely bible says, honey… so frustrated with your opinion now… never thought you were such hypocrite!

  38. exBFF says – reply to this


    38

    she only said it to glom some publicity off of Gaga's coattails. Mission accomplished. We'll see whose art stands up to time. In that case, Katy, sweetie, rent - don't buy.



  39. 39

    1. I like how Perez isn't licking Gaga's ass over this.
    2. I prefer Gaga over this moose! Katy Perry just needs to realise she isn't socially relevant and leave the music making to people with atleast and ounce of talent.



  40. 40

    Re: SheridanWade – the fact that you didn't know who grace jones is just shows what kind of a tool you truly are and the fact that you shouldn't be commenting on the quality of music to begin with….without artists like grace jones there wouldn't be a lady gaga so fuck you….you think just because your limited brain doesn't know who someone is that they aren't important to pop culture? you are a moron



  41. 41

    …said the girl with frosting squirting out of her nipples in her latest video.



  42. 42

    I still don't understand how someone who's biggest hit is about kissing girls can say anything about someone else's controversial song/video

  43. oandc says – reply to this


    43

    she makes no sense, just talking in circles



  44. 44

    Re: boogaboo – It may be "art" to GaGa, but not everyone is going to think that way, hence the reason she did it. She's an attention getter. That's her gimmick. This is what she's paid to do.



  45. 45

    Re: exBFF – FTW!!! hahaha!!!

  46. Laura says – reply to this


    46

    France is a secular state, they're probably laughing at her being so upset about the video.



  47. 47

    Re: Bushwack – I said judging others' ART…there's a difference. But now that you mention it, it is not o.k. to judge on any level. Judging and opinions are two separate entities.



  48. 48

    Listal Overrated Celebrity bodies! Google to see Katy Perry's TRUE figure!!

    lmao!! REPENT B1.TCH!!….bow down to your god Lady Gaga and ask for forgiveness…

    p.s. i still do you and you hipster dufus boobs.



  50. 50

    Spirituality runs deep, especially from one's upbringing. She is just staying true to who she is.



  51. 51

    Re: LadyHettyGreen – Katy isn't Catholic dumbass



  52. 52

    Re: Emery – actually it is a French radio station! see the guy in the right corner? that's nikos alagias! he works and live in france!!!! so……………



  53. 53

    OH FORTHE LOE OF GOD. YOU GAGA FANS ARE SOO IGNORANTI MEAN SH CLEARLY HAS BIG POINT ABPOUT MIXING SEX ND RELIGION?? IM NOT EVEN A BIG RELIGIOUS PERSON BUT I STILL RESPECT THOSE WHO ARE RELIGIOUS. GAGA IS AN ATTENTION WHORE WITH LITTLE TALENT. KATY HAS A POIN AND ALL HOSE MORONS WHO ATTACK HER ARE JUST AS DUMB AND MENTALLY ILL AS GAGA. LIL MONSTER GROW THE FUC UP AND USE YOUR BRAN NOTHING KATY SAID WAS WRONG NOR WAS SHE SAYING SHE WAS ETTER THAN GAGA. GET OVER YOU PUNKS



  54. 54

    i guess her 15 minutes of fame are almost over…….



  55. 55

    does she realise france is about the most secular country in the world? theyre not about to jump and agree with her about 'blasphemy'



  56. 56

    i LOVE Lady Gaga but it was a little offensive seeing her use those symbols that way. even though its 'just a music video' she was screamin out a message with that, one that i didnt agree with. i like her unique style and crazyness but to put a religion in there really turned me off. i agree with katy perry although i do think shes using this lil rivalry for publicity. im not a fan of katys at all but in this case i have to agree, religion should never be used in the way gaga used it, its offensive.



  57. 57

    I'm fucking sick of this. Katy Perry had an OPINION and because you're so far up GaGa's ass that you're practically one of her intestines, you made it bigger then it is. You hate on people all day and don't allow someone else to say they don't like something.



  58. 58

    KATY PERRY IS SOOOOO CORNY! SHE NEEDS TO SHUT UP. BITCH CAN'T EVEN SING!



  59. 59

    Re: Emery – Dear Emery, i don't know who has to check his informations… NRJ Radio, the station that interviewed Katy Perry is just two blocks from my home. I live in Paris. So Paris is in Canada ??? I missed something !



  60. 60

    CaCa blows $2 trannies. Probably blows Perez to keep posting about her.
    Sweet Jesus, Katy is beautiful. Gorgeous eyes, mouth, tits & legs. So fuckable!
    I download her pics to get the fire burning when the girlfriends not around.



  61. 61

    Ooh la la…



  62. 62

    She clearly lied.



  63. 63

    Katy Perry is a vacant idiot. I heard her on the radio this morning; she could hardly string a sentence together. Couldn't even explain the motivation behind her new CD. . .it was all "um, like, it's like I'm growing up, like, my fans are growing up too.. ." Total moron.



  64. 64

    Love Katy - she's very down to earth and normal. At least SHE's not ripping off Isabella Blow.



  65. 65

    french ppl are weiiiird



  66. 66

    i get wat shes saying, im not the most relegios person in the world, but every has a set of values that they,ve been brought up with and it doesnyt feel right when theyve been crossed



  67. 67

    It's ridiculous how this has been blown out of proportion. She was right with her comments anyway.



  68. 68

    oh NOW she's talking all innocent.
    she's such a liar.
    and she looks fat in this picture.

    Re: rickM – agreed

    Re: boogaboo – agreed. agreed.
    Re: DoubleECupMagus – agreed. she doesn't want any haters. she's trying to SAVE her 'career.'



  69. 69

    umm… i didnt see Lady Gaga commenting on her horrible dancing @ the MTV awards… now that is blasphemy!!



  70. 70

    What I appreciate about GaGa is that you will never hear or read her saying something negative about another female performer. With that being said, I'm glad The Gossip's lead singer came out against "I Kissed a Girl". Katy Perry is simply not my style!

  71. Kakia says – reply to this


    71

    *Yawn* I'm over this whole thing. Can we talk about something interesting now?



  72. 72

    How about some coke to go with that box of rocks. Made no sense whatsoever. I hate how she kept mmmmmm'ing at words.



  73. 73

    I may not be a huge religious woman or may not agree with other people views on religion/god but to mock another religion in such an inappropiate way for entertainment reasons is a HUGE disrespect. I clearly do not see what was the point of the video. By shoving a rosary in a mouth, wearing a nun suit and having a bunch of men in heels practically gang raping her is a way to make an artistic video. I don't get it.
    A true talented star can be VERY successful without trying to offend anyone like the King M.J, Pavarotti,Britney Spears,Elton John etc.
    Just my opinion people :-)



  74. 74

    Oh way to backtrack. And no, just because you separate spirituality and sexuality doesn't make it any less CHEAP for you to USE LESBIANISM AS ENTERTAINMENT as it does for Lady Gaga to use blasphemy.



  75. 75

    Whatever, whatever. Each to its own. I say "whatever". Religion is overrated.



  76. 76

    Re: PreTTy*n*PinK – - Just because you don't see the point, doesn't make whatever she was trying to convey as invalid. "Talented stars?" Martin Luther King? He was a motivational speaker, not an entertainer. Not to mention he offended plenty of people, by simply existing and doing what he knew was right to do. Britney Spears for one, has offended me, for providing a horrific example to young girls. I'd never seen so many belly-shirts on Junior High girls than after Spears began to make more skanky videos.

    I'd rather see a video with an interesting/controversial message about world issues than just some sweaty ho-bag tossing her tits all over the place. Also, Elton John happens to be gay and not a lot of people agree with that either. Just because YOU don't think it's right, doesn't mean it's not.



  77. 77

    shes entitled to her opinion not everyone wants to kiss gaga ass

  78. Bytch says – reply to this


    78

    She's absolutely sweet. I love her….its true….bringing religion into a mix for shock value IS cheap and it has been done. From her background, she has every right to be sensitive about it……I'm not even religious and I think its lame. Lady CACA needs to keep blatantly copying shit other people have done to try and stay relevant…if she's so talented why couldnt' she make it until recently? Because everyone loves a freakshow, and her circus will come and go just as quickly as every other act that tries this. She BLATANTLY rips of Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Cindy Lauper and Christina Aguilera



  79. 79

    Re: dahlimama – I see your point on Britney bad example(my mistake) :-)
    and Elton John is gay but he does not "intentionally" try to offend anyone. To me Gaga is a bit too extreme. The video is offensive and has no point to it.
    I feel like a person shouldn't bring religion and sex into a serious topic. Just my opinion. And I give my opinion without intentionally trying to offend anyone. :-) Thanks for doing the same!!!



  80. 80

    Gone Surfin !!



  81. 81

    Re: SheridanWade – Wow. Maybe it's because all you listen to is Top 40, stupid fuck. No wonder why you have never heard of M.I.A or Grace Jones…. Seriously. expand your horizons a bit before you say shit about other artists who are far more talented than lady shithead.



  82. 82

    Re: umyeah – I said the same thing when I read this comment too… Thank you.



  83. 83

    This broad isn't too swift. So, it's cheap for an artist to criticize religious institutions, which is what much of the greatest art does, but it's not cheap to capitalize on people's obsession with girl on girl action? The hypocrisy isn't in a Christian talking about kissing girls. As it's not immoral to kiss a girl. I'm not sure that's what she was insinuating, although it sure sounded like it. The hypocrisy was she used a cheap gimmick (people's obsession with girl on girl action) to gain fame. She wasn't even making a statement. She just wanted to entice people. While Madonna, Russell Brand and Gaga actually have something to say about the institution of Christianity. They're not just trying to shock people. There's a point to be made. I'm sure that goes over Katy Perry's head though.



  84. 84

    SHE MADE NO SENSE



  85. 85

    Why is she talking about anybody elses music when she fucking copied tic tok!? shut up katy. you cant even make your own song! every time i hear california girls i sing tik tok in stead and it was clearly stolen! ugh



  86. 86

    I completly agree with katy, and honestly were all titled to our own opinion. I have always been a huge GaGa fan and still am but with any artist i think that throwing anothers religion like that isnt something to be taken lightly.



  87. 87

    she sounds stupid…what a hypocrite.



  88. 88

    Katy Perry is a dumb B!!



  89. 89

    Well, using blasphemy as a provocation may not be very original and stuff. Though I think Gaga uses it in a smart way, an artistic way. But does Katy Perry REALLY think that the little homosexual bullshit that she used in "I kissed a girl" were a smart and original way to be provocative ? I find it so pathetic, especially coming from this straight christian hypocrite bitch who probably thinks it's only okay to kiss a girl if you're drunk and if it makes her boyfriend horny. That girl shouldn't talk about provocation or anything. She is so empty. Go back to your father's church, Katy Perry. Wearing short dresses and fucking a long-haired guy doesn't make you a crazy person.



  90. 90

    I am baffled by people that think it ok to criticize a literary work like the Bible, but not a music video. Lady Herron is it? Psh…

    Look, Gaga made her video. She wanted a repsonse. She is getting a response. Responses are NOT limited to just positives…just as they obviously are not for the Bible.
    Gag says she wants to please her fans. Katy is a fan. Her fans are not going to be impressed with everything she creates. I think Katie's comments were brave and that she should stand her ground and NOT get the least bit wishy washy. Gaga wasn't losing sleep over potentially offending anyone, and neither should Katie. Besides,Gag shouldn't be offended! She should accpet all feedback and just move forward.

    Look, visual artists have long criticized one another. The majority of people thought the impressionist movement was not art. Whatever. Let us not stop responding to art.



  91. 91

    Re: LadyHettyGreen – Hi! Amazing writing as always!

    A blogger over on SALON named SUPER AMANDA is trying to contact you. Go to the thread for "This Week in Crazy Katy Perry" it sounds like she really wants to talk to you.



  92. 92

    Can't take her serious when she's wearing CUPCAKES on her tits. I think she swims in the shallow end. This girl is about as deep as a puddle !



  93. 93

    whoever refers to lady gaga as legendary mommy monster or God are…losers.



  94. 94

    Re: blahblah12 – WELL SAID!!



  95. 95

    I can tell shes holding back she doesn't want to make no one mad. The girl can't sing but at least she's honest.



  96. 96

    Re: vanya1199 – I love Rihanna the most. Shes actually unique. Fuck haters who are they?



  97. 97

    Gaga would wipe the floor with her in a debate.



  98. 98

    I like the look on her face when they're talking in French. That's the way I feel when I try to find some sort of meaning in 99% of her music.



  99. 99

    Re: SwedishSweetheart – I don't think she wants to bring her down and I am sure their was perhaps jealously but Katy used to talk So good about gaga so idk…



  100. 100

    All I got to say is if I were someone that was involved with fame, press and etc I don't think I'd bash anyone ever ppl take everything out of context. shees who the fuck cares about fake as pop stars?
