You know what? We’re starting to like this girl-kissing Katy Perry. About a week ago, The Sun reported that Ms. Perry had outraged the families of knife-murder victims by posing with a knife in a recent promotional shot. Perry, not one to sit and take criticism where its unwarranted, responded on her own blog with the above photo and the following:
But I DO condone eating ice cream with a very large spoon.
You deserve a time out. Your “journalistic” approach has half the soul of the National Enquirer. Shame on you.
Some of us at Scandalist thought Katy should have apologized and others didn’t think she was being irresponsible at all. We just thought she looked mighty uncomfortable with a knife by her eye. But honestly, if we go after Perry for the tenuous connection between posing with a knife and insensitivity towards knifing victims, then where does it stop? Is Beyonce being callous to schizophrenics with I Am…Sasha Fierce! And how many animals had to die for Britney‘s weave?
