Gothic Council Wants Katy Perry to Go Away
I stumbled to the Internet, where my custom-designed goth-defense system presented me with this link.
If you don't want to click on the link, I understand. I certainly didn't. Apparently Julie Pike of The National Ledger invites us to consider Katy Perry's new goth look. The quote reads...
Katy Perry has a new gothic look.
The pop starlet goes a bit dark with a dramatic image overhaul featuring the opposite of her usual bright colors.
The photos above and below are from the Narm Music Biz 2012 Awards in Culver City, California on Thursday night (May 10, 2012) and feature Katy wearing a floor-length black gown with transparent stripes and sporting deep purple locks, smoky eye make-up, and plum-colored lipstick.
Keep goth and carry on...keep goth and carry on...keep...screw it. This is an emergency, and I summoned the Gothic Council! And since damn near every member answered during this crisis, I'm just linking their names rather than introducing them.
Scarlett St. Vitus: This irritates me to no end. Any time a celebrity puts on a black dress, suddenly they're goth. As if that's all it takes.
Recipe to make a goth = one black dress + a human female. And there you have it! Now go scare some children! This happens every awards season, the mainstream media slams someone for looking too goth. I wish they would just stop using that term altogether.
Larry Rainwater: I believe the term they used was "gothic look." Let's see...purple hair, dark lipstick, black dress and dark eye shadow. Well, honestly, that pretty much is a "gothic look," based on what I see everyone wearing in the clubs. Does it make her goth? Probably not. But her music now? That's totally goth! Ha ha ha!
Jvstin Whitney: If you want something to go away you ignore it, not give it the attention it wants, positive or negative. I've always considered Katy Perry an insufferable bitch, so this isn't anything that would surprise me. In the spirit of keeping goth and carrying on, I would just say, "Okay," and continue about my business, because reacting to anything she does isn't making my life better.
Darla Teagarden: Perry has to choose a look every tour. My friend made all her latex costumes for one of the tours...So it was only a matter of time before she went there. I'm also waiting for it to go away
Sarah Fanning: Just another attempt to garner attention by being somewhat "outrageous." How about making some music that is actually good so people will pay attention to your talent? Then you won't need to constantly reinvent yourself to get attention and can quit ripping off our subculture.
I grow weary of these antics. I'm going to focus my attention elsewhere now until this passes.
