While doing some research for my post on Amanda Palmer’s scandalous belly, I noticed that she had been nominated for Out Magazine’s annual “Out 100” Awards. While happily watching interviews with Amanda and Tegan & Sara, who should I see but Katy ‘UR So Gay’ Perry standing around in the background. ”
What is she doing there?” I thought to myself. What is the woman famous for lyrics that say kissing another woman is “not what good girls do” and that listening to Mozart and being a vegetarian is “so gay” doing in the Out 100? Well, not only is she in the 100, she was awarded Musician of the Year and is the only woman represented on the cover of the magazine.
Shame on Out Magazine for awarding Katy Perry! Shame on them for not only listing her, but for letting her represent all “out” women on the cover, and for letting her offensive apolitical drivel stand above all the other awesome music being made by and for the queer community.
