Katy Perry

Khaleej Times - City Times - - COVER STORY -

Case: Dur­ing her 2013 AMAs per­for­mance Katy Perry dressed as a geisha. Although Katy claimed that she was try­ing to cel­e­brate Ja­panese cul­ture, many peo­ple weren’t pleased. It was only af­ter she was called out for this that Katy apol­o­gised say­ing that she will never un­der­stand some of these things be­cause of “who she is” and that she does have a lot of “white priv­i­lege”.

Ver­dict: We find it re­ally shock­ing that no one from Katy’s team thought to tell her that this was a bad idea. We find it equally sur­pris­ing that Katy can claim ig­no­rance – Google isn’t bro­ken. Re­search. If you want to look a bit dif­fer­ent think about your in­ten­tion. Google it first.
