I’m no Katy Perry fan!
Quite honestly I think I only belt her 2 popular tunes (Firework & I Kissed A Girl) because they played them so damn much that you were forced to know the words.
Recently Army Wife Angela sent me Katy Perry’s latest video ” A Part of Me” in which through the magic of TV she transforms into a Marine overnight.
The song itself sends a positive message about not losing yourself ,not settling for less , letting a man take away who you are and being strong.
Feminist author Naomi Wolf has criticized Perry on her official Facebook page saying:
“Have you all seen the Katy Perry marines video? It is a total piece of propaganda for the Marines… I really want to find out if she was paid by them for making it… it is truly shameful.
“I would suggest a boycott of this singer who I really liked – if you are as offended at this glorification of violence as I am.”
Of course leave it up to the video police to make this a political issue and say that she is spewing propaganda for the Marines and promoting violence? I mean are you serious? Must everything entertaining (although I wouldn’t consider the music or tv put out these days talented or entertaining) be put under a political microscope?
Have we forgot it’s these troops (that so many forget about) who are the reason why Ms. Wolf can be a writer and make the statement she made above?
If anything I think the video sends a cool message of girl power from within ourselves and in whatever we do, as well as honoring our troops particularly our female service members.
Can I just say I’m hating on how she can go into a dirty gas station bathroom chop off all her hair and still look cute in a grungy pair of jeans in a hoodie?
Watch for yourself:
