    Re: wowlaurfml – I strongly agree. I may not care for Katy's music but she does seem to be herself and has a lovely personality shes not just pretty. Lady gaga would be awesome if she would be herself but its so clear she's not. She's trying to be what her label wants her to be. I feel bad for her.

    your a dumb googley eyed slut katy.

    Re: exBFF – I doubt that, when I seen gaga's video i was outraged at the disgusts. The religious part didn't offend me, I got it but the sexual abuse was fucked up.

    Re: btrfly25 – they are all morons the corporate music industry doesn't want anyone smart obviously. They want power over them completely. God forbid someone actually speak against shit.

    Re: MargotTenenbaum – That is true so far I've never heard her bash anyone ever. It would be stupid too the moment u bash or criticize another artist you better be bold and mean what u said lol.

    Re: shane_c – Katy perry and gaga would be the most retarded debate in all of history. NEITHER can speak in complete sentence and talk in circles. BOTH are brainwashed puppets and everyone outside of pop culture can see how shallow and ridiculous it is. CMON all either of them can do is get naked on videos to show their 16 year old fans how they should act. DISGUSTING so glad I wasn't raised by tv or pop culture or I'd be an infected slut.



  10. 110

    She "like" twelve times. Count that shit.

    You can tell she was being very careful to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. She's saying that kissing a girl is OK, but using religious imagery is crossing the line. Basically, she is picking and choosing what Christian tenants to follow based on her preference (hence being admittedly hypocritical).



  11. 111

    Word of Advice Lady Gaga: Madonna did it first, and she did it BETTER!



  12. 112

    Hah, really Katy? Considering the crap you do in your videos, you really shouldn't talk.

    Wow watching that made me really angry. It's like she's this perfect little church girl….when it's convenient for her. She likes to break all the rules and then pass judgement and look down upon other people for doing the same? really? Screw her and her contradicting cherry picking BS!

    Re: polishhottie1 – Katy Perry is the antithesis of class. She's an inartuclate, jealous airhead. Her face will look horrible after about 35. Little doll faces never age well.

    Re: MadonnaQueenofPopFan#1 – No bitch! DEBBIE HARRY, GRACE JONES, Labelle, joan jett , dale bozzio, tony BASIL, THE GOGOS AND SUZI QUATRO DID IT FIRST.
    WRONG!
    WRONG!
    WRONG!
    WRONG!

    who gives a fuck about katy sell-out



  17. 117

    Spirituality and religion are 2 separate things as well, sweetie. And a lot of religions dictate what you can and cannot do, sexually, to be a good person. Blasphemy has little to do with spirituality, and everything to do with religion.



  18. 118

    I like her, and I like Gaga. She loves Gaga, but that doesn't mean that she's going to agree with everything she does. Every pop star does something that their fans don't like, and this is exactly the situation.

  19. Genn says – reply to this


    119

    I feel like this is backpedaling…I wish she'd just stick to her guns. She can still be a fan of Gaga but call her out on something. Everybody does it, it's normal to disagree on something somebody else does.



  20. 120

    she isnt very sophisticated or interesting……she picked the wrong career if she is so worried about upholding the hypocricy and antiquitey of religion….



  21. 121

    Re: DoubleECupMagusRe: DoubleECupMagus – Oh here we go ………Please explain it to me, cause I'm so sick off people saying Madonna stold from DEBBIE HARRY. Do tell me where can I find a video of DEBBIE HARRY or for that matter any off the women you've listed with them being a sexy female who mixed sexuality and religion in there videos? That's right there are none………I'm from that ERA, I doe's not exist …So what did Madonna steal from Debbie, Dale, Tony, tell me was it the blond hair what ??? what was it the fact that they are all women and there sexual??? how about grace Jones or miss la belle …what did Madonna steal one of Graces? her pose's or weird hats??? Oh I get it, in Madonna's American life video Madonna wears a leather jacket ..did she steal the from Joan Jett ?? Come on what's next U forgot to say Siouxsie …..Are U kidding me? get over it Madonna was better then all them that's why where still talking about her.



  22. 122

    She is only explain herself… Gaga is creepy . We dont have to love her…



  23. 123

    Just a sad popstar trying to stay relevant by critcizing other people's work rather than creating her own.

    What was the last hit song Katy Perry had? I Kissed A Girl? Circa TWO YEARS AGO.

    Please perez, stop promoting her. You're the only person caring at this point.

    Re: jay1234567
    Well, explain to me, since you seem to be in the know…what made Madonna better than them? Was she a better singer? Better songwriter? Funny, because when discussing Madonna, no one ever talks about the music. Madonna made less than a handful of "sexuality mixed with religion" videos–I would hardly call that spiritual, groundbreaking, "doing it first," or whatever accolade you delusional fans like to throw out. Now she may be unique in the sense of the word, but let's not pretend the overwhelming majority of the things she did, she did first. Artists have been mixing religion/spirituality with music long before Madonna came on the scene (Laura Nyro, Patti Smith, Diamanda Galas, Stevie Nicks–yes I'm from that era, too). Female artists have used their femininity and sexuality as well before Madonna–some deliberately, some b/c of record company pressure. Just because Madonna was a little more upfront about it, doesn't make her the one to do it first.
    The video concept was pretty new when Madonna arrived, so finding artists who've done controversial videos before her may be hard to find, since she's pretty much a video pioneer–but she's hardly original, which was what the poster was saying.

    what has the "i kissed a girl" song to do with caca being an uncreative loser, who needs to promote a bad ace of base rip off song with an even worse copy of madonna`s blasphemy antics from the early nineties?
    get a grip!
    katy is fucking right and caca sucks. no need to compare any further.

    Katy Perry is irrevalent. Everyone loves lady Gaga so maybe Katy should get on the bandwagon!

    Re: beautifulchild – Like I've said, show me the proof…….
    I don't know what you want me to explain to you …better singer, better songwriter its all a matter of opinion. I'm no delusional fan just and honest person. Laura Nyro, Patti Smith, your just naming early female singers, none of them had sexuality and religion in any of there videos. just cause they where out first dose's not make them original. As far as Diamanda Galas no one even knew who she was till the early 90's. Stevie Nicks is the only one you could maybe name but one huge difference Stevie was preaching wicca and paganism not going after the Catholic church. so like I've said show me where Madonna stold from Debbie Harry or any off them? Just cause your a females singer from the 70's to the 80's and came out before Madonna doesn't mean thatMadonna should be discredited for her work and called unoriginal or a thief. I just don't get the notion that some people have that Madonna some how stold Debbie's thunder. Madonna visually did it first. Give credit where credit due.

    Re: LadyHettyGreen – 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

    Re: rickM – 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

  34. 134

    Katy knows her stuff, don't mix sexuality and spirituality. Gaga thinks opposite and uses both. Gawd people are such haters. leave them alone. Upbringing and religious acceptance runs your life and your opinions. The jealousy is so overwhelming on this site. anyways lovers gotta love: love ya KATY AND GAGA!!!! :D i love pop music, and i love being a california gurl, don't hate, appreciate.



  35. 135

    Re: rickM – You obviously didn't listen to anything she said you fucktard shut up before you make yourself look more stupid.

    Re: jay1234567
    " Laura Nyro, Patti Smith, your just naming early female singers, none of them had sexuality and religion in any of there videos."
    That's because they didn't make videos. But it was already there in their music and/or live shows. Madonna just introduced it to a new medium.
    "As far as Diamanda Galas no one even knew who she was till the early 90's."
    Speak for yourself..she's been making records since the early 80s.

    Re: jay1234567
    "so like I've said show me where Madonna stold from Debbie Harry or any off them?
    Show me where someone said Madonna stole from her. That is NOT what to whom you were responding said. Someone said Madonna did it first and did it better…did what??? But Debbie was an international sex icon, known for her brassy, tough image who started out in the punk scene. Madonna may have not stole that from her, but that's where the similarities are if you want to know why people bring them up together all the time.
    "Just cause your a females singer from the 70's to the 80's and came out before Madonna doesn't mean thatMadonna should be discredited for her work and called unoriginal or a thief."
    No one is discrediting her. My main beef with her fans is most of them that don't remember anything before the 80s think everything began with her. She's unique, and may have been the first to have done things some female artists haven't done before, but she is not wholly original, but then again, there aren't many people who are.



  38. 138

    I was mad at Katy at first but she does have a right to express her own opinion.

    So, no Katy music had been deleted from my itunes. ;)

    Katy seems like a nice person and Perez…please do not try to start a Katy Vs Gaga feud. Move on please………… :)



  39. 139

    Sometimes I rock back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, because my obsession for Madonna has gotten so out of hand. Anyway, my point is.. I have changed my mind and love love love LOVE lady Gaga. If I type anything otherwise it's because my multiple personality disorder is raging as of late.



  40. 140

    Gaaaawwwwwdddd.
    She's a moron.
    Horribly inarticulate.
    Incapable of forming grammatically correct sentences.
    And untalented.



  41. 141

    Well, I do admire her for speaking up for her beliefs. It seems the tables have turned - before people were ostracized for disagreeing with the teachings of the church and doing anything out of the norm. Now, it seems to be the other way around more - it isn't popular to speak about one's Christian faith and beliefs, or even to be more conservative. I guess it's the natural progression of the times…yet why does it have to be one or the other? So, I'm glad she is willing to speak about her beliefs, being involved in an industry in which this is not popular at all to do.

    However, I don't know that she addressed the topic very well…she talks about how her soon to be husband offends her core belief system…and how she's "hypocritical?" She seems a bit confused…you have to wonder how she can seem to believe one thing yet live another…and how long this relationship w/ this, in my opinion quite crude, guy, is going to last…



  42. 142

    using religion to get attention IS cheap!!
    and she should get new ideas not remakes from madonna!

    katy perry has her own ideas and original videos that is a real artist
    and REAL art



  43. 143

    Katy Perry no talent hack with great tits.



  44. 144

    like mrs ritchie gaga hasn t a contralto vocal but she s a better performer thn her



  45. 145

    Re: beautifulchild – "That's because they didn't make videos. But it was already there in their music and/or live shows. Madonna just introduced it to a new medium." Ok so your saying Madonna stole from someone's lyrics or live show's ??? show me??? there is a thing called Youtube today' show me proof?

    "Someone said Madonna did it first and did it better…did what??? " You are not aware off the topic at hand its the Lady Gaga music video Alejandro, is a blatant copy off imagery from Madonna's Express yourself, Vogue and Like a prayer video. Not in anyway a copy off anything all the other woman you wrote about ever did.

    "But Debbie was an international sex icon, known for her brassy, tough image who started out in the punk scene." Madonna was not punk when she started and I would say the word "international" is kind off a stretch don't you think ?



  46. 146

    Re: beautifulchild – "that's where the similarities are if you want to know why people bring them up together all the time."
    See and I don't get the similarities in anyway Madonna was not in a band, she was alone and she danced she was not singing rock/punk music it was strictly pop/R&B…they didn't dress alike or sing the same kind off music. Why is there a comparison? What cause they where both in your face, sexy and female. I don't get it..

    "No one is discrediting her." then why say "No bitch! DEBBIE HARRY, GRACE JONES, Labelle, joan jett , dale bozzio, tony BASIL, THE GOGOS AND SUZI QUATRO DID IT FIRST"?

    "but she is not wholly original, but then again, there aren't many people who are" Your right most artist are inspired buy other artist work. Just like all the other woman you listed I'm sure aren't "wholly original" they to where inspired by someone. Where they thefts? That's not to say someone should copy, take directly, rip off. Its quite obvious That's just what lady gaga and Christina Aguilera have done with MADONNA'S work as off late.



  47. 147

    stop talking shit you nasty no talent hoe, keep sucking on your russell and don't be so mad bc someone else has more talent then you 'cali' grl

    "then why say "No bitch! DEBBIE HARRY, GRACE JONES, Labelle, joan jett , dale bozzio, tony BASIL, THE GOGOS AND SUZI QUATRO DID IT FIRST"?
    That's not discrediting..that's just merely stating that Madonna didn't do everything first. If you can prove otherwise, be my guest.
    "Why is there a comparison? What cause they where both in your face, sexy and female. I don't get it.."
    Well, I'm glad you don't get it, because I don't get the comparisons with Madonna and every female singer that came after her.
    "Just like all the other woman you listed I'm sure aren't "wholly original" they to where inspired by someone. Where they thefts?"
    That's why I said, "but no one really is."

    Re: vanya1199

    Rihanna is a talentless hack! I no longer think she's the black Britney. Britard knew how to entertain at a time, E.T.'s baby sis cannot even do that!



  51. 151

    i think katy perry is the wrong person to talk….those she is right lady gaga has pissed me off now does she not realise that some of the fans are religious ans she is offending them- the people who go and spend their money on her album she should respect them as much and the fucking gays!!! the women is very satanic and i have lost all respect for her its is very sad when a celebrity, who should be thankful for all god and blesssed them with but she decides to mock him!! lady gaga's career will be gone soon.



  52. 152

    how is gaga's video offensive to christianity….its not like she stabbev a little girl with a cross then ate her guts while being dresse din a nun suite and then mastrubated over her dead body with a cross instead of a vibrator



  53. 153

    my daughter loves katy perry… i however wouldnt recoqnise her if she walked up to me in the street!



  54. 154

    Pathetic fucking twat. And who was it that CHOSE HER FIRST SINGLE to be about kissing girls!? attention seeking. She has to talk about lady gaga only because her records dont sell as much. Btw im no fan of lady gaga's personality because it SCREAMS attention seeking but her musics good.



  55. 155

    Re: blahblah12

    You have no right to attack someone for defending Gaga and then start bad mouthing her. First off, everyone re-does something. There's no originality anymore. Second of all, Gaga has more talent then Katy. She writes her own stuff, has a unique voice. On the other hand, I see Katy in Pro active commercials talking into a shoe. People can't attack Gaga because she 'copies' Madonna while Katy copies Betty Page, can't hold a note, and is just like any other girl in Hollywood.



  56. 156

    Madonna is an old elderly bitch. I don't even know why I obsess about her!



  57. 157

    oh my god Katy Perry you are so full of shit. Perez by "in-depth" did you mean a bunch of suppressed, ass-covering, non-sensical babble? If you're gonna take a stand against something maybe you should actually back it up or stfu.



  58. 158

    That’s kinda funny, Katy…since you’re the one who sings songs about kissing girls….same tactics if you ask me…leave lady gaga alone…seriously, jealousy isn't very becoming.



  59. 159

    Katy Perry..hmm she was such a sweetheart but then she got stuck up..she just annoyed me with her comment she swears like she's a saint…GAGA can do as she pleases so KATY pleasse STFU! BTW lady gaga can sing great live nd you cant..BIOTCH! love and respect:)



  60. 160

    I agree with Katy Perry,I love lady gaga though I have all her albums..I've loved her since she came out but for example the alejandro video is disrespectful,to me..having an upside down cross on your vagina? and eating rosary beads or whatever she was doingggg, idk about thaaaat. Gaga doesnt need to do things like that,she should just make her music and be like she used to be when she first came out,idk thats my opinoun.everyone should stop doing weird shit for attention and just make music.
