Katy Perry wasn’t feeling it over the flop of her 2017 album, WITNESS.
Perry saw it as a lesson from “the universe,” according to an interview with Vogue Australia for their August issue:
Music is my first love and I think it was the universe saying: “Okay, you speak all of this language about self-love and authenticity, but we are going to put you through another test and take away any kind of validating ‘blankie.’ Then we’ll see how much you do truly love yourself.”
She also told Vogue Australia, “I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to … which broke my heart,” she said.
This is truly sad. For her. Misreading the public by projecting your feels on to everybody can only stem from living in a bubble in which your views are affirmed while all opposing views are silenced. Kind of like how many social media giants want their platforms to be run, by and for Progressives.
Perhaps what really went wrong was her obsession with being “triggered” by Donald Trump, as she explained to The New York Times in June of 2017. “The reality is that I was retriggered on the election. I was retriggered by a big male that didn’t see women as equal. And that had been, unfortunately, a common theme in my upbringing.”
Such an over-the-top reaction focused on her “victim” status and a false narrative meant to garner her sympathy, may have led to creative choices that just didn’t resonate with normal people. Katy Perry was raised in a Christian home by decent parents whom she almost daily dumps on, just as she blasphemes the God she was raised to have faith in. it helps her personal “narrative” and makes her popular among the godless set, but it really does nothing for her art.
It might help your music, Miss Perry, if you focused more on art and less on politics, which clearly didn’t help your creative process.
