Katy Perry continues to get away with homophobia

Katy Perry has been using her own kind of homophobia since the beginning of her career. After using a male singer (Lenny Kravitz) to sing the "I kissed a girl" portion at the Super Bowl, people have been questioning her motives. According to this article, Katy "gets away with an entitled, IDGAF-what-you-think brand of homophobia while also appointing herself a spokesperson for LGBTQ rights. It's like there's this pressure to laugh at her gay jokes because she insists she means well. If you take her homophobia too seriously, it's on you for being uptight."

The song in question is about kissing a member of the same sex, but announcing  that "It don't mean I'm in love tonight" as if it were a sugarcoated, female version of "no homo," making a pop anthem out of the view that same-gender experimentation is cool and fine as long as you have a boyfriend who doesn't care, and as long as you don't have feelings for the other person. That would be so gay.


ONTD, have you ever been straight washed by a basic white singer?
