Can we talk about Katy Perry's new single..?

Can we talk about Katy Perry's new single..?

by Emily Bell

4 months ago


Katy Perry just released a catchy-dance beat that is sure to have bodies moving all summer long. It's called "Chained to the Rhythm" and we're obsessed! With a funky-disco vibe, Perry delivers yet another candy-coated dance dream. It seems to us, however, that Katy is hiding golden nuggets of wisdom within these lyrics. The song opens with the following: "Are we crazy? Living our lives through a lens, trapped in a while picket fence, like ornaments, so comfortable, we're living in a bubble, so comfortable we cannot see the trouble, aren't you lonely, up there in utopia, where nothing will ever be enough, happily numb, so put your rose colored glasses on, and party on." Miss Perry perfectly describes our apathetic nature to ignore what we know is wrong, but who cares, we're going to keep partying without a care in the world. Below that shiny pink surface is a deeper message about the madness in which we live. We see you Katy, and commend your efforts. We are puzzled, however, to then see you pimping out CoverGirl. How can you perform these almost too real lyrics while perpetuating the very problem you sing about? Have you stopped to think about the ingredients in the products you're selling to young women? Or realize this company, while paying you handsomely we're sure, is only using you to sell as much cheap toxic product as possible? Did you know that large companies like this spend most of their money on advertising and packaging while giving little regard to the actual ingredients? Or that there are essentially no rules for the cosmetic industry, meaning they can add whatever they want to these products and don't even have to disclose it. Katy, we're with you, but please start pimping what you #preach.
