Katy Perry is my hero.

Right now I'm obsessed with Katy Perry. I think it's because she's so fun. I like when a pop star just does silly, fun things, just to be silly and fun. That's what pop should be. She's acts as wacktastic as she feels like and makes no apologies. Gaga has a totally different brand of "I do what I want" attitude, but Katy Perry reminds me of her in a lot of ways. I guess the days of sugary sweet young starlets is over. When I was the right age to be the target demographic for pop music, Jessica Simpson, early Christina Aguilera and pre-psycho Britney were all the rage. Snooze.

This is the track that has me on this tangent. It's fabulous and has not a single shred of "take me seriously" messaging in it. The video is even more faboo. It's all set in candy land. Fun, frivolous, fantasy...pop. Can't. Get. Enough.


Another thing I love about her, and this is very Gaga-esque too, she never breaks character. She's always looking fierce. And her own spin on fierceness...World Cup. She made a nod to the old U.S. of A., but also one to her future hubby's homeland, the UK. Latex graphic dress just for fun. Loves. (Hi, I'm also feeling like this was a non-accidental wink at the Spice Girls....genius.)

Then there are a slew of others. Eyeball boobies: Check. Obama shift dress: Check. Carousel as clothing: Check. I wish I could dress like this.


Oh, and she's besties with Rihanna. That gives me the jealouses more than any of it.


She's engaged to Russel Brand. I'm not really sold on him yet. I like that she's going to marry a comedian. I think a professional comedian would make a for a very pleasant life partner. But on the other hand, he's sort of stringy/dirty looking and has a little bit higher voice than I normally go for. All that aside, they're a cute couple and seem to be totally freaking in love. I want them to make hilarious and fiercely-dressed babies together. But not too soon, I wouldn't want her to pull one of those "I'm getting out of the business to raise a family" routines any time soon.
