Katy Perry: “I’ve gone from Betty Boop to more Bettie Page”

Singer Katy Perry arrives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit in New York

Here is Katy Perry at the Met Ball last night. I didn’t include her on the Trashy or Classy lists, because really, who cares? I think she’s pretty, but she’s never been fashionable. It’s like she’s the budget Dita Von Teese, only Dita is like a million times better. Anyway, I only saw photos of Katy’s dress when it looked normal and boring, but apparently the dress was lined with LED lights. See:

Totally moronic, right? Anyway, Katy told Us Weekly: “I love it! I think it’s so much fun. I feel like I have to wear something to represent women who do their own thing and have spontaneity!” She also said that she had the light switch in her bra, and “I don’t know if that’s a good place for it or not!”

Anyway, Katy also appears on the cover of Lucky magazine for June. She talks about the evolution of her look, saying, “I’ve gone from Betty Boop to more Bettie Page. It’s less cute and more meow.” Bettie Page? Bitch, please. Katy also talks about her style in the olden days, pre-fame: “I was completely broke. I used to borrow outfits, get my makeup done at makeup counters, and then sneak into events. It was cool! I seemed to be wearing things right.” Here is the cover shot and addition photo:

    Bettie Page? Ha! In her wildest dreams maybe. Despite her desperate “ooh aren’t I kooky” shenanigans, this woman is as bland as a bowl of oatmeal.

  2. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    She’s cute and seems like a nice girl. I hope her self esteem is really that high.

  3. Chuck says:

    Her head looks kinda big in the last two pictures…

  4. Icecat says:

    Bettie Page she is not. In fact, Bettie Page probably just rolled over in her grave..

    Hooker, Please!!!

  5. Missmilly says:

    Shes pretty—but has a HORRIBLE taste in men

  6. Dusky says:

    Kind of off-topic, but I do not see how people wear dresses with slits that high… don’t they feel completely naked? I would. XD

    As for Katy… She has a couple songs I like, but that’s about it. Other than that, she just seems completely desperate for attention and like she has a totally overinflated ego… with absolutely no reason for it to be overinflated. Bleh. Other than that, she CAN be pretty, but most of the time she just makes herself look weird.

    Better luck next time, Katy.

    THe last pic is yet another example of photoshop hell. When will this madness end and who do these celebs, and their pr hacks, think they are fooling? As an endless number of posters on this site have opined, why not just go straight to cartoon images and be done with it.

    It’s Princess Vespa’s stunt double!

  9. RedEyeJedi says:

    she has no talent, sings like a cat is dying, and is sooo boring. the only thing she got going for her is her pretty eyes.

  10. original kate says:

    nope…still boring.

  11. Squirrel says:

    Fantastic body, mediocre talent but diligent marketing. Hope she does not end up at Betty Ford….

  12. Jeri says:

    She’s cute, great body and doesn’t make catty, vicious comments about others. That puts her ahead of a hell of a lot of folks in Hollywood.

    Johnny Depp really is a HERO!

  13. Kim says:

    She wishes! She has no talent and wears the crazy outfits for attention because she cant rely on just talent to keep her in public eye. She looks like a man?

  14. Diva says:

    I don’t think she’s trying to be Dita, she’s not making it a lifestyle, it’s just fun fashion. There’s a huge difference, I think.

    She seems like a super sweet person. She’s been on the radio here in the Seattle area a few times and she’s much more down to earth and “normal” than most of the celebrities that are interviewed.

    I went to the Russell Brand show in Seattle last week and at the end he said he had a surprise, I could hear people all around us getting excited it might be Katy Perry… it was Jonah Hill, lol.

  15. scorpiogal says:

    @Icecat- Bettie Page is still alive, not in her grave.

    But yeah- Katy Perry is not and will never be on par with Bettie Page.

  16. Anj says:

    Why the fu** is she insulting bettie page by comparing herself to her?

  17. Diva says:

    scorpiogal – I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Bettie Page, has, in fact, passed away.


  18. Emily says:

    Bitch please, she’s not even close to Betty Boop, let alone Betty Page. I can’t wait till her 15 minutes are up.

  19. Melinda says:

    Why do people say things like this? It is an open invitation to be mocked shamelessly. Not smart.

  20. Alexis says:

    …Eeeeh I’d still say Betty Boop…but a little more trite. Never classic, always kitsch.

  21. archiepelago says:

    Weird, they made her cans smaller in that photo with the red dress and the other one looks like a high school year book photo. That’s the problem with having so many average, manufactured ‘stars’, their soundbites are so ridiculously stupid to seem relevant.

  22. freckles says:

    I’m not a Katy Perry fan, but why is everyone here hating on her so hard? She’s boring but she always seemed sweet and nice to me, and she’s cute and seems fun. I don’t think she was trying to compare herself to Bettie Page as a public figure/legend, just trying to name her as her fashion idol. Chill out everyone

  23. Emily says:

    @freckles, I don’t like her because I think she tries too hard to eccentric. And she has no talent discernible to the human ear.

  24. Abby says:

    I agree with @freckles. What’s with the hate?

  25. Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer with contributions from animator Grim Natwick and others, appearing in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop series of films produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.
