Does Katy have career envy? Does she just want attention? Believe it or not, it’s neither!
We were shocked June 8 when Katy Perry tweeted her disapproval of Lady Gaga‘s “Alejandro” video, saying: “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” She’s clearly NOT a fan of Gaga’s sexual use of the crucifix. But now that we’ve had time to let the dust settle, it makes perfect sense!
As strange as it sounds for a girl who made it big with a hit called “I Kissed A Girl” and who has a new music video which features a cream-shooting bra, Katy really does have some Christian values. She got her start at age 15 singing on the now-defunct Christian record label Red Hill Records, and her dad is actually a pastor.
Her first album, 2001’s Katy Hudson (that’s Katy’s birth name), touched on Christian themes, with lyrics like: “How could I be clean when I was so dirty? How could I be made whole when I was torn apart?” Clearly things have changed since 2001.
I have to agree with Katy on this one. Religion and politics are two of the cheapest, easiest ways to stir up controversy. I know Gaga’s more creative than that. Thumbs down!
