Mean Betty: Katy Perry and The Idiots!
No one is smart enough for our little songstress.
Kittens, Mean Betty simply must pause today and thank Katy Perry, the celebrity gift that keeps on giving. Whenever Mean Betty thinks that the diminutive pop star has done something so colossally stupid that nothing can surpass it, she does! Talent like that doesn’t just happen, sweethearts. It is achieved after years of working at such challenging tasks as labeling oneself a Christian while appearing nude on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Now, though, Ms. Perry has once again topped herself by calling the people who work for her record label “idiots.” What could earn mere humans such scorn from our pop goddess? Why, they didn’t want to release a single called “Peacock,” because it might remind listeners of a man’s naughty bits.
While Mean Betty does think this is being a little too careful, it is the job, darlings, of record-company executives to raise all possible objections—and then to abide by the decision of the “artist” because the “artist” is after all the company’s cash cow most important voice.
But Ms. Perry is apparently unaware of how to conduct an adult professional conversation. “I was like, ‘You guys are idiots.’” Such a graceful, perceptive remark! But we have come to expect no less from our Katy.
