  1. Our next #JusticeFor campaign should be for Bionic "Daisies." Katy Perry's new music video for her lead KP5 single isn't lighting up the Internet the way I thought it would. At the time of posting, the video only racked up just over 5 million views since it's debut. It's her most underwhelming debut to-date. By comparison, her ballad, "Never Worn White," in which she announced her pregnancy, was viewed around 10 million times in its first day. "Never Really Over" surpassed that with 10-15 million views in its first day. Katy has 271 million followers combined on social media. Why is "Daisies" not slaying? I think there are a couple of reasons: She hasn't ever disappeared from the spotlight. American Idol I think is hurting her music career. She's consistently released songs over the last year or two, so this doesn't feel like a "lead" single. She stopped connecting with the GP. It's also worth mentioning that it debuted at #40 on the Hot 100. I don't know. Am I the only one that still cares about Katy? Whether you're a Kat or not, I'd love to hear your opinions. And stream Daisies smh.
  2. Katy Perry performed "Daisies" and "Never Really Over" on Good Morning America remotely. She had a few backup dancers... I know this is not the best place to point out lip-syncing, but pretty sure "NRO" was 100% pre-recorded. "Daisies" had live moments. I know the song's going to debut at #45, but props to her work ethic. She's out there promoting during a pandemic while pregnant Thoughts on the performances? Related:
  3. ** DISCLAIMER .... THIS IS NOT TO START A STAN WAR.... I'm just curious, based on the recent poll of who had the BEST decade, who do you all think had the most disappointing, and why? I'm curious what albums we didn't like, where we think things could've been better... tours, singles.... let's have some fun! For me, it's Christina Aguilera. I have been a fan of Christina since 1999. I was so stoked after her long hiatus to hear 'Bionic' was coming out, and I think it's one of the most flavorful albums of the 2010's. It was extremely disappointing to see which singles were chosen, how the tour was canceled, and the album ultimately scrapped. From there, 'Lotus' disappointed me because it was so generic, and nothing happened until 'Liberation'. I do think Lady X brought it back full swing with her residency and that phenomenal 'Liberation'.... but Christina could've had such a huge 'Bionic' era if they managed it a little differently....
  4. Katy Perry performed her new single "Daisies" on American Idol, and it's a visual feast. The singer used some kind of virtual reality technology for the performance. It's pretty epic! Say what you will, but she keeps pushing the boundaries (andddd doing so while pregnant). What do you think of this new performance? Is it cool or a snooze fest? Related:
  5. Katy Perry's new era is officially underway! The pop superstar released a new music video for a track titled, "Daisies," the lead single from her forthcoming fifth studio album. The song is upbeat and bright - a shiny pop gem the world needs in this time of uncertainty. Sure, it probably won't crash the Hot 100, but does it matter? Music not the bling. More importantly, when most pop stars are taking a back seat because of the pandemic, Katy went the other way. She's going full album cycle on us amidst a global crisis, while pregnant. She even unapologetically shed her clothes and showed off her naked pregnant body in the video, which takes place inside an enchanting forest far away from the worries of a coronavirus. It's hard to fathom watching Katy in her element that the world is seemingly imploding. That's the beauty of this song and video. Yea, this isn't Katy's best release ever, but that's not what it's meant to be. "Daisies" is a beacon of hope in a time when we could all use some.
  6. Call her a flop or whatever, but I love who Katy has blossomed into these last several years. I also have mad respect for her stance on releasing new music amidst the pandemic. A lot of artists are deciding to press pause because the business side of music will take a hit, but Katy is just doing her thing regardless of how it pans out. She says she'll release KP5 this year regardless of the state of the world, because “we ain’t gonna let no coronavirus stop us from dancing.” I love that Her new single "Daisies" drops May 15. What do you guys think? Should she wait or release sooner than later?
  7. If you were hoping for a Katy Perry x Taylor Swift collab, I have bad news: it's not happening. There were rumors floating around that the two pop titans had plans to collaborate together, but turns out... Katy Kats and Swifties read too much into things. Katy explains that yea, no Taylor collab is happening on KP5, though she's open to it one day. Here's what I previously posted about it:
  8. Katy Perry just released her leadsingle of her upcoming 5th studio album. American Idol, where Katy is a guest judge, posted several tweets about Katy Perry's new song WITH Taylor references. First they said they will play the song 1.989 times which is a reference to Taylor's acclaimed album "1989". This led some fans to believe that Katy's song would feature Taylor but it didn't. Now American Idol posted some emoji's about the finals this sunday where Katy is supposed to perform "Daisies". The emoji's included the daisy along with 2 blonde girls and a heart emoji. Katy is now blonde and so is Taylor. This immediately led people to believe Taylor might join Katy during her performance. Thoughts?
  9. I'm not a huge fan of chart and streaming data, but I AM a huge proponent of girl power. This is why everyone is like, WhErE's R9 Kinda surprised about Halsey. Anyone missing?
  10. August 14th. Alexa spilled the beans. Why is she waiting so long? JUST DROP IT
  11. Katy Perry has some of the most creative and fun marketing out of all the main pop girls. Her latest campaign is super cute (I'm not being paid to write this lol I just think it's worth sharing / I love marketing). Her new website, KatyDaisies.com, mimics a flower shop selling different bouquet arrangements. When you send a bouquet to a friend, it reveals a lyric - presumably from the new album (or perhaps just the song "Daisies"). Here are the lyrics right now (btw, can someone send ya boy some flowers so I can experience some romance during this gd pandemic kthx): 1.) What do y'all think of the lyrics? Adorable? Cheesy? 2.) And seriously, are you going to send me some flowers? https://www.breatheheavy.com/exhale/index.php?/forums/topic/771683-katy-perrys-new-song-smile-featuring-p-diddy-surfaces/
  12. Katy Perry is releasing a new song titled "Smile," and it features P. Diddy, however the song already hit the Internet ahead of schedule. It is thought to be produced by Zedd and Charlie Puth, both of whom have collaborated with Katy on her most recent releases, because they Tweeted smiley faces on the same day back in February. The track is vibrant and upbeat. She sings about being thankful and grateful. It is definitely a ray of sunshine in a world that feels very doomy gloomy. I read some fans hating on it because it sounds like a Prism reject, but I disagree. Sonically, it's not innovative, but it's VERY radio-friendly. It'll get stuck in your head all afternoon, and for Katy that's very important; she hasn't had luck charting in a hot minute, but "Smile" could be that pop gem Katy needed to debut back on the Hot 100. Diddy's verse is pretty fresh, too. He doesn't overdo it. I can't link you due to copyright reasons, but it certainly exists. Coming to save pop Related:
  13. Katy Perry might be Las Vegas’ next big resident performer! It was once assumed artists go to Vegas to lay their careers to rest, but those days are long gone. Celine Dion, Elton John, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears paved the way for fellow A-list artists to make Sin City their second home. Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Ricky Martin, Cher, Bruno Mars, Drake, Cardi B, Marshmello, Xtina, The Backstreet Boys, and many more are the latest to light up the Vegas strip, and if the reports are true… next is Katy Perry. Perry not-so-subtly hinted that she'll be headed to Vegas sooner than later. During a live chat with fans, someone asked about the project she'll kickoff a residency in Vegas. Perry directly acknowledged the fan by name and winked. It's unclear when this will go down. Vegas' iconic strip took a hard hit amidst the pandemic. Hotels closed and laid-off/furloughed thousands of employees, including performers in the shows. All residencies are postponed until further notice, however MGM properties plan on allowing ticket sales to resume on June 1st pending no further wide-sweeping changes. Vital Vegas on Twitter, who have accurately reported Vegas-related news before an official announcement hit, claims Katy is eyeing a residency at Vegas' up-and-coming monster hotel, Resorts World, opening in 2021. Last year, the Las Vegas Review Journal claimed Katy “informally” appeared at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace to tour the venue for around an hour. Caesars Entertainment officials reportedly joined Katy on the walk-through to discuss a possible residency at The Colosseum. The prospect of Katy calling Las Vegas her second home is pretty interesting. Would you go see Katy in Vegas?
  14. Music not the bling. Katy Perry says she's not quitting music. The pop star, who is expecting, reassured fans in an Instagram live stream. Gotta respect the mindset. Perry, who experienced insurmountable success on the charts earlier in her career, barely makes a dent on the Hot 100 when she releases new music. Despite that, she's carrying on. It just proves she loves making music cause it's her craft, not because she gets high on chart success. Stream Harleys in Hawaii.
  15. The way MIA snapped on social media lately I- She posted this caption about harassing your inner power... then the very next photo is how her album Matangi is better than Gaga's ARTPOP, Miley's Bangerz or Katy Perry's Prism. I have to laugh. Is Matangi better than the Trinity she mentioned?
  16. Hi guys, this time I bring you a concept that I did a while back from "Bad Blood" with well-known singers, a video that YouTube shut down this year from my channel unfortunately, but allowed me to do it again and now it looks much better than before. I edited the hell out of it, so let's hope they don't take it down again. Hope you like. Enjoy it, and thanks to the users who tried to help me with the names for each singer.
  17. Katy's 2008 track Thinking of You has reached BPI silver status (200,000) shipments. Still to this day The British phonographic industry is the only recording institute to offer the Silver Cert. Albums 60,000 is silver Singles is 200,000. For a while in 2015. Discussion was going around the social media that The RIAA should adopt the Silver cert. Since most albums even with streaming numbers were getting hard to cross 500,000. It's even more rare to go Platinum. Halsey is still the only act to achieve Platinum status this year for Manic. I really think we should have a Silver cert for crossing the 250,000 threshold. This is usually where all the pure sales acts. Madonna, Britney, Janet and Mariah stop at on current releases. So it should be adopted. In most respects
  18. It could have been “Rank the singles or top 3s from TD” but that would be also include The One That Got Away and Wide Awake and it’d be too long. So like, rank the #1s From Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection Mine: E.T. California Gurls Teenage Dream Firework Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) Part Of Me

  20. Generous queen. Katy Perry announced she will donate 10% of each show and handbag sale she makes between now through the end of May. She's facing some backlash because it just seems like MEH ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Gaga raised $35 million already and it's hard not to compare. A dollar is a dollar though!
  21. I'm asking this not just because I'm a Katycat because even KatyCats wonder about this. How does she pull in so many views on YouTube? Hot N Cold, a generally forgotten song compared to the much bigger I Kissed A Girl, is about to reach 1 Billion views Dark Horse was the first video by a female artist to cross 1 Billion, and is about to hit 3 Billion Roar was the first video by a female artist to hit 3 Billion Views. Taylor's Shake It Off was a much bigger phenomenon when it came out but SIO only pulls in 350k per day while Roar still gets around 800k per day, almost a million a day! This is How We Do has 700M and it didn't crack the top 10. Birthday LYRIC VIDEO has more than 300M Last Friday Night still gets over 350k per day and has 1.2 Billion views. Firework also has 1.2 Billion views Wide Awake is also at 920M views, about to hit 1 Billion. That's 3 videos from 1 era hitting 1 Billion! Part Of Me has over 800 million too! E.T and California Girls both over 500M Then we come to the FLOPPIEST era Witness. Bon Appetit peaked outside the top 50 and still gets over 600k per day!!! It is predicted to hit 1 Billion this December! It got almost 2 billion a day in 2019 To put this into perspective, Look What You Made Me Do only gets 300k per day despite being a much more impactful song released in the same year as Bon Appetit Chained To The Rhythm and Swish Swish both has about 600M End Game, Delicate and Ready For It combined doesn't defeat Bon Appetite despite Reputation being much more iconic than Witness Currently the second biggest YouTube channel (second to Justin Bieber) and the biggest female channel, how did she manage to pull in these massive YouTube numbers even in her older songs which remain consistent till this day
  22. Hello and welcome So flashback to April 2019. Taylor Swift just released her highly anticipated lead single of TS7 "MEH!". The whole pop world is disappointed as the song is subjected to negative reviews from critics and casual listeners alike. The hype from Ariana's thank u, next era was also fading with "break up with ur girlfriend, im bored" was receding from the charts. And then boom! Katy Perry announces a fan event and speculation of a new track floods the internet. Not long after, she introduces the world to "Never Really Over" *the alleged lead of KP5 at the time*. Coming fresh from an unflattering era and a stint on American Idol, hype for the song was a surprise to most. Would this be finally her way of telling the world that she's never reall over or would this be another Witness reminiscent? "Never Really Over" gained 16 Million views on YouTube in the first 24 hours since it's release. The song receives massive critical acclaim and it felt like the General Public was finally here for Katy's music. A masterfully produced pop track, especially that of Katy Perry, getting such a reception was not a frequent sight given 2019's music scenario. The song also briefly served as a meme on Twitter, with its electrifying chorus leaving many in awe and the explicable songwriting of using the term "over" in 5 different ways. Debuting at #15, it becomes one of Katy Perry's most recognisable songs with ease. Alas, there might be a pivotal place for Katy in the music industry after all, contradictory to the predictions that arose from the Witness era. It didn't end there; the potential the song had could have landed it a top 5 spot, with Katy's last one being "Chained To The Rhythm", the lead from Witness which peaked at #4. But what did Katy Perry do you ask? She paid the song dust. With no major promo other than playlisting, the song was left to fend for itself. The song's first live performance wouldn't be for months, and that too at a local music festival which didn't help the song get any traction. "Never Really Over" slowly fell into the top 20s and then farther down when it was confirmed that no album would be followed by the song. Katy had the golden opportunity with that song. She could have made her grand return to the music industry with a song that was probably the most well received song of her career in a long time. Months later, "Small Talk" would be released, scraping the bottom of the barrel at the #80s lf the Hot 100. The interest was lost again. In 2020, she explained that she did not release any of her 2019 droplet singles with the intention of making them chart high. She was merely experimenting with different sounds to see the reaction from her fanbase, so as to decide the best sound and direction for her upcoming album, releasing this summer. But to this day, I firmly believe she missed an option big time by not giving the push "Never Really Over" needed and letting it die easily with none to minimal promotion. Also worth noting that the Grammy's snubbed the song by not even nominating it for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song Of The Year, both of which the song was submitted for. But this wouldn't be new in the case of Scammys and their history with Katy Perry. Easily one of the best songs of the year, and my favorite song of 2019 periodT Another gem to a flawless videography as well. Thoughts?
  23. 'Witness' has long been regarded a very difficult album to love, and “Bon Appetit” is perhaps the best example of why. “Bon Appétit” is a decidedly left-field choice for a single that eschews the candy-coated formula of prior Perry eras. However, that’s precisely why the track deserved more than its lukewarm response, and also why Witness remains one of Katy’s strongest albums. Let’s be clear: the era was a mess and Katy made some truly ridiculous missteps during the promotion, but don’t get it twisted—despite the few duds it encloses, Witness is an album stacked with capital-b BOPS, among them this oft-neglected flop—by Katy’s standards, of course. The track has recently been making waves on streaming services, though. UMG gave “Bon Appétit” an inexplicable marketing push and YouTube’s mercurial algorithms have also favored it as recommended viewing, insofar that it jumped into the top-15 videos on YouTube with almost 5 million daily views. It’s collected almost 700 million now, a stupefying fact given the collective shrug most pop fans offered in response to the track and Witness two years ago. The song’s disarmingly fetish-filled music video is decked with user comments reflecting on how well the song aged, and for once they’re right: “Bon Appétit” is an overlooked gem in Katy’s history of bombastic pop singles, both more experimental than her prior work and less bizarre than Witness’s more fearless deep cuts. Underneath the echo-chamber acoustics of the track’s minimalist electronic instrumental lies a killer earworm hook and one of the more noteworthy music videos in Perry’s videography. As had already become custom for Perry in 2017, the clip for “Bon Appétit” juxtaposes the ludicrous with the provocative, the ridiculous with the erotic. Food, fittingly enough, becomes the medium in which Perry communicates the song’s flirtation with tropes of aphrodisiacs and sexual consumption, expanding on the more simplistic symbolism of her phallic breasts squirting whipped cream in “California Gurls.” Here, there’s a marked juxtaposition between desire and lunacy, readily apparent via the opening shot of red liquid that suggestively squirts out the title, only to be followed by the illumination of a neon sign indicating that what follows is “NSFW.” The cinematography of the clip follows up this dualism, marrying tongue-in-cheek close-ups of Perry’s face mugging with orgasmic pleasure and the more objectifying wide angles showing various parts of Perry’s voluptuous curves covered in flour and being kneaded like dough or tenderized like meat. The message is clear: Katy Perry is a fancy feast, but she willingly objectifies herself only to emphasize that she exists as much to devour as to be devoured. Perry eats throughout the video, often from the garnishes she is literally being served with, plucking berries and oysters from the triangular serving dish between her legs. She’s shrink-wrapped to a bed like pre-packaged meat in the video’s first shot of her, but she wakes up before the chefs puncture the plastic, smiling as if to invite what’s to come. Whatever the frivolity of the song’s lyrics, the video thus becomes a definitive commentary on agency: throughout the meal-prep sequences of the first half of the video, Perry’s character enjoys and participates in the processes preparing her for consumption, anticipating the video’s final twist: she is the one who will be consuming. Perry after all is the one sitting down to eat at the close of the video, while body parts protrude from the beastly pie steaming in front of her. Just as there’s more to take from the video than the surface themes of foodie fetishes, the track warrants a closer look, especially given that one of the biggest complaints against “Bon Appétit” was that it never goes anywhere as a song. While prior Perry singles often served as blueprints for instantly-memorable hooks and radio-ready pop-chorus belting, “Bon Appétit” is a more subtle beast. It opens with a primary synthesizer theme, heavy on the treble, which evokes early 90s house music, a la Perry’s own “Walking On Air” and Erotica-era Madonna. A second synth theme begins at 0:44, and its chirp-like sparkles usher in the track’s reverb effect and its delicious use of percussion. After the track goes quiet for the bridge, the percussion returns for the second verse, which builds in intensity as the tempo gradually accelerates. By the 2:15 mark, the track at last blooms into a holistic menagerie of the various elements at work: there are two basslines, the twinkly synths, the 90s house keyboard line, and the reverb effect all working to create a downright hypnotic banger subtler and more controlled than virtually anything on the radio in 2017, let alone now when trap has all but usurped the glory days of dance-pop of the early 2010s. Where the track most surprisingly shines, however, is on the feature. (Who would have thought? But let me explain.) As each member of Migos takes a turn in the spotlight, the music not only adjusts, it progresses. Initially it sounds like the energy of the track disappears at the first rap verse when the trap bassline appears, but as each member of Migos takes over, the prior elements of the song slowly creep back in, most notably increasing at 2:45, until the slinky bass of the last rap verse signals the calm before the storm at 3:12 when all the prior elements raucously return. By that point, the track has less than a minute to wrap up, and when it does, my immediate reaction is always to play it again. It’s by far the most experimental single Katy has ever released, and as such it’s an ideal catalyst to re-explore Witness, which sees Perry exploring far more than she’s given credit for doing. Get beyond the laughable singles “Swish Swish” *facepalm* and “Hey Hey Hey” (really, Sia? f**king really?) and there are many tracks equally beguiling that unfold much like “Bon Appétit.” The album, like the song, rewards repeat listening. The song’s recent success is a welcome reminder that even the most formidable of pop stars is not immune from the cruel counterpoint to stan culture: fans and the general public alike turned on Katy at a moment’s notice at the very moment it was most important for her to try something new. It wasn’t enough to chastise her for daring to have a political opinion when we apparently preferred her as the vapid songstress providing the bubblegum soundtracks to our summers from 2009-2012. We also were encouraged to write off the album without any serious engagement. Given the track’s history, it’s hardly surprising that Perry’s visual, with Zedd, for recent collaboration “365” unfolds the way it does: cyborg Katy is created to please and devoted to doing so, but Zedd, who stands in for the general public, is unmoved and regards her disposable precisely at the moment when she is most vulnerable. She is disposed of and a replacement is brought in from the assembly line of newer, fresher, less emotionally vulnerable pop-stars in waiting, “fresh out the oven.” “Bon Appetit” foreshadows this narrative: while the clip ends with Perry about to devour a pie stuffed with the body parts of the men who had been preparing to eat her, a more compelling interpretation might be found in observing that Katy does not entirely escape becoming collateral damage down the line, as we see in “365”’s visual. The same process that empowered her has been used against her, and the song itself reflects the same principle. The success of Katy’s standardized pop format from One of the Boys through Prism was seriously challenged in Witness, despite that formula being the one with enough commercial success that she was empowered to experiment more. Fortunately, although it took a few years, the song has earned a second glance and closer consideration. “Bon appétit, baby!” By Thomas Simpson
