Patrick, giving me advice on things. (via billybloom)
I am inspiration itself.
I wasn’t really being in earnest - I know it wasn’t actively malicious or anything.
But yeah, Katy Perry’s body of work is problematic as fuck and maybe it’s just that I’m raw that the woman who found success with a song as stupid as ‘I Kissed A Girl’ has now produced a music video which has the same essentialist way of looking at gender and sexuality (Which will probably make her millions.)
I don’t think that in the creation of something as saccharine and friendly and mainstream as this you can hide behind 80’s nostalgia as your only way of defending things that are problematic.
Too scared to look at it any more.
