The New Katy Perry
The thing is it’s like I understand the message that Katy Perry is trying to communicate but it’s to convoluted and stuck under too many layers of yikes and I don’t know if it’s even salvageable at this point.
Like I really think she’s trying her best to spread good lessons but she’s just sabotaging herself every step of the way. Like Chained To The Rhythm made sense because her style wasn’t so out there and the visuals in the music video added context to the song and it actually made sense, but Bon Appetit and has too many layers of irony in it in both the music itself and the visuals from the music video for it to be comprehensible. From analyzing the music video it seemed like she was going for a message that was trying to promote a more wholesome view of people’s body’s as ‘not just a piece of meat,’ but the way she goes about it gives the exact opposite message. The very fact that it was NSFW in my opinion was what set it up for failure. It definitely creates food for thought, (that wasn’t meant to be a pun but now I’m thinking if she chose food imagery because of the phrase ‘food for thought’ im gonna lose my ish) but I think the way it was made was so sloppy and open ended that it risks losing all it’s meaning altogether.
Likewise Swish Swish has a its own menagerie of issues.
I’m just sad to see how sloppy all of it is.
