Katy Perry has released the video for "Unconditionally" and it is beautifully shot by director Brent Bonacorso.
I love the imagery, the look, the feel. What I don't understand is...when it comes to eternal love, unconditional love, why does one of them have to die? Is there no real unconditional love or eternal love without that?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Maybe I am just reading to much into things. Beautiful video for a song that I thought was so-so.
Katy Perry has released a behind the scenes making of the "Roar" music video and we find out that even monkey's LOVE her boobs.
It is interesting to me that about 20 years ago, this would have aired BEFORE the video was released, followed by the world premiere of the video. Not so anymore. In fact, this is weird promotion for "Unconditionally" her new music video set to premiere on November 19th.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Other alternate title: Welcome To The Jungle....
Courtney Love came out of her cage to go after Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus and the claws went flying!
Courtney first went after Miley:
"Miley Cyrus is not setting any trends. I wonder who decided to put her in white mesh and a pair of pasties and a faux fur (for September's iHeartRadio festival)? It was dumb and trashy-looking."
Then, Love defends Cyrus:
"I liked her attitude and still do, but it's wearing so thin."
Love sets her sights on Perry by comparing her to Miley:
"Despite all their endless sales and downloads, will go the way of Sub Pop's (Seattle grunge group) Tad singles, into some sort of oblivion. It's artless pop at the end of the day."
"Yeah, I have listened to Roar and We Can't Stop and I love Wrecking Ball for a guilty pleasure, but these are songs written by men mostly for pop tarts. This is not rock 'n' roll. Soul and rock 'n' roll endure, pop does not, that's why it's called pop. It goes pop like a bubble, and then it's just a funny 'do you remember when' memory."
"if you can't start a trend, you're screwed. Good luck on ripping off Katy Perry's boobs."
I'm not sure about "Wrecking Ball" but Katy wrote "Roar" and writes her own songs, sometimes with other writers, yet it is still her.
Seems like someone is jealous over someone's boobs if you ask me.
Hard to take her advice seriously when almost 20 years ago she did this with Madonna.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Courtney Love is in dire need of attention"-Madonna in 1995 and DrFunk in 2013
Two fine. Maybe even three fine. For W Magazine's November issue though, Katy Perry appears on W magazine with 2 different covers. Oh, and she talks about John Mayer again. You guys know they are together right? Just wanted to make sure you didn't miss it.
Oh, Katy also discussed religion. Wonder how many bloggers/music writers are brave enough to put "G O D" in the title of a post?
In talking about John, she did keep it brief:
"I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great."
As for her single "Roar", to Katy, it is a movement:
“This song is about sticking up for yourself. People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways. You can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the case for me. I was having a great professional streak, but personally, I was really immature, so I had to balance those things out. If you are not happy with something, you should change it.
Katy also expressed one of the hardest things to talk about in an interview without seeming crazy, her religious views:
"I try and keep my connection with G-O-D or with a power that's bigger than me. It's important - otherwise, you don't have any kind of accountability. If you think, Hey, at the end of it all I am just going to be dust, or I have no soul or whatever, why not just be a menace to society? For me, accountability works."
Katy doesn't run from the question and her background of her parents being preachers and where she came from will make sure she is asked that question 99 times out of a 100 when she is interviewed.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The religion question. It is a trap a majority of the time. Aside from saying "God is great" or "God is good" or exact quotes from the bible, it is a trap. There is nothing wrong with believing or not believing. The more interviewers ask that question, the more I think they are lacking something and looking for an answer themselves.
Katy Perry performed "Roar" on The X Factor UK Last night as her "Prism" album dropped on Friday in the UK. The U.S. release is set for this Tuesday.
Surrounded by business women and men wearing white sheets to cover their face made us wonder when they were going to disrobe their suits and sheets. That finally happens around the 3:30 mark.
I preferred the set used for her SNL performance of the song but like that she did change sets and tried to keep things fresh and different.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will "Prism" roar to the highest numbers of the year this week?
Katy Perry has released a lyric video for her new single "Unconditionally" from her album "Prism" due in U.S. stores on October 22nd. Outside the U.S., the album is now available.
The first half of the song does not sound like Katy....I wonder.....
Katy says the song is inspired by her beau John Mayer.-DocFB
Diagnosis: This album appears to be all over the place. We will see if that is a good thing on Tuesday....
