Use to think Katy Perry was just another pretty face. Little did I expect....

Last edited Mon Nov 12, 2012, 09:57 PM - Edit history (1)

her to be a terrific Obama supporter showing up at a lot of events, Wearing an
adorable Obama dress singing.......But then there was this and I was hooked.

I'm sure most of you have seen, but I just watched again.....Notice
her sincerity, especially at the end. I will be her fan forever!

1. I've always liked her and...

...my wif and I were very moved by the fact that she was very visably touched by that brave little girl.

Thank you for posting.

PEACE!

7. 2 of my posts were hidden by a DU jury recently. I was a little embarrassed.

One of them I thought was funny, a little sexist but nevertheless........

18. The PC rules on DU are tricky

 

I've been juried for characterizing monica lewinsky as "fat".

Don't let it get to you. It is well meaning but sometimes a little silly.

2. I was actually surprised to see her supporting Obama

I know she's pretty devout to her Christian faith. There was a rumor last year her mother was trying to fix her up with Tim Tebow.

31. WTF? What does the Christian faith...

have to do with Katy Perry reaching out to a little girl with Autism? You think she wouldn't have if she wasn't a F-N Christian? OMG, Katy & Tim Tebow would be worst than what's his name...the idiot British comedian! Anyway, Katy has been a very strong & long time supporter of our President Obama!

massively bright.

10. That was beautiful. The best part was at about 3:45,

When the crowd first started applauding and cheering. You could see the girl blush and start to smile. She knew this was going to be a great moment.

16. I have learned to appreciate Katy Perry. She is something else. Unique. I can't believe RussellBrand

let her go! Is he NUTS????

She's interesting, fun, drop dead gorgeous, can wear absolutely anything, compassionate, obviously connects with children, has a good personality.....

I wanna be Katy Perry, gosh darn it!!!

20. This performance reveals her compassionate depth of character.

 

I have always been impressed with her stage presence, vocal range and general strong performance skills. And I have found her songwriting to be quite nuanced and melodic.

Unabashed Katy fan!

21. Did not know she wrote her stuff. That changes everything. Writing is everything in my opinion.

Her dancing is a little suspect. But .............who cares?

... I'm a teary mess now. What a determined young lady. So much to be proud of. And thank you Kati for having the grace and humility to "only" sing back-up.

Great vid. Very inspiring.

30. I don't like a person's music simply because they support good poiticians/causes.

Sorry, it's still disposable dance fodder sold by the artist's non-musical attributes to me...

37. Agreed

A little late on my post - health stuff really getting me down. Anyway, I feel the same way as you do. Sting does good things, but I wouldn't buy an album (showing my age there) regardless. One of my fav quotes from who knows is "Today's music is a product, yesterday's was an art." I showed my husband the video and he still doesn't like her - not as a person since of course he doesn't know her, he just doesn't think she's talented. Can we blame Madonna?
