Katy Perry Finally Personally Addresses Her AMAs Geisha Dress-Up Controversy!

Katy Perry finally opens up about her American Music Awards giesha costumes!

Remember wayyyy back in November when Katy Perry stirred things by kicking off the American Music Awards in Geisha attire?

Well, her stylist responded to the backlash immediately, but KP stayed mum on the subject - until now!!

During her recently published GQ interview, KatyKat was asked what she was going for with those controversial costumes — costumes many thought glorified the indentured servitude of women.

But like her stylist, Katy claims it was only her love for Japan that inspired the outfits!

She insists:

“I was thinking about unconditional love, and I was thinking: Geishas are basically, like, the masters of loving unconditionally. All I was trying to do is just give a very beautiful performance about a place that I have so much love for and find so much beauty in, and that was exactly where I was coming from, with no other thought besides it.”

Aww we just KNOW her heart was in the right place - Miz Perry has been VERY open about her love for Japan in the past!

Still, the attempted tribute probably could’ve been thought out a little better.

At least it’s clear she had no ill intentions!

    It's odd, When a white person dresses up like a minority group or puts on a their accent it's racist. But when a minority puts on a white person's accent it's deemed acceptable.

    So when pretty much every single popstar dresses like a regular, western prostitute, there's no problem ?

    Re: xFaust – Your comment made me snort loudly in class. Probably why I shouldn't be on this site during class…

    Well that is good to hear. Thanks Perez for being the moral police. God knows we all need your approval on everything. You are such a fucking moron.

    So from this we can conclude she knows nothing about geisha. Good going Katy! Maybe do some research next time.
