To wonder how on earth Katy Perry made it?

She is truly crap. I saw something on tv recently where she was live and it was shocking how bad she actually was. I know there are other who are like her and who still made it but I can't find anything redeeming about her. Even with auto tune she still sounds bad. Or maybe I am just a bitch confused Is anyone else as baffled as me?

She's actually a very talented singer who started off in church choirs.

I don't get it either OP!

WorraLiberty Thu 02-Mar-17 16:21:38

Meh. Could say the same about shit tons of people who have made it really.

It's just personal taste I guess.

Yanbu, I've thought the same when I heard her live...

witchofzog Thu 02-Mar-17 16:22:26

Maybe she is better with a different genre of music then. I wish I could remember where the live clip originated from as I could attach it so you can see what I mean

Her latest song is awful. It sounds pretty bad on the radio but at the Brits singing live she sounded awfully out of tune.

I don't mind some of her songs. it is just something about the current one that sounds pained.

Yanbu. She doesn't appear to be able to sing,

r0tringLover Thu 02-Mar-17 16:32:58

She's beautiful and can sing a fine pop song. She can dance too.

Are you better OP?

There's something really lacklustre about her latest video.

I'm not a fan but I used to think she was testy good at catchy songs/watchable videos. This one feels totally flat.

I do like her songs a lot and she is cute, but I agree wholeheartedly that her live singing is f*cking awful. Worst live singer I know. Funnily enough, I hardly see any comments about it (on twitter etc,) and I wonder if it's just me/my ears LOL. So it is refreshing to see someone post that she is shit live.

She makes my ears bleed! confused

She writes great, uplifting songs. I'm not normally a pop person at all, - much more into folk, Indie, jazz etc but I make an exception for her two life affirming anthems: Firework and Roar. Can't listen to either of them without feeling amazing.

I saw her live a couple of years ago, wasn't excited for it and we went as a big group of girls because a couple of my friends love her and she was all we could agree on. Tickets were only £35 as opposed to (other, albeit more talented) people like Ed Sheeran and Beyonce (£120?!?!?!? For a 90 minute show?!?) and she was actually fantastic. Great performer, invited people up on stage, told us about how she got bullied in school and to always celebrate our individuality and love ourselves as we are... sounds like bullshit now but it was very empowering and quite fun, and I think she's a much better role model than many others for young girls e.g. Nicki Minaj.

Which of her songs has she written

OnHold Thu 02-Mar-17 16:40:43

I love Katy Perry. I think she makes good pop songs.

Maudlinmaud Thu 02-Mar-17 16:42:10

I like her, the video for her latest single is great, the one with the hamster not the people.

Allthebestnamesareused Thu 02-Mar-17 16:43:23

We saw her live at the O2 and she was amazing. Must have had an off day!

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Thu 02-Mar-17 16:46:16

Meh, I feel this way about Madonna.

Can't sing that well, can't act. Yet she has somehow made millions as a singer & actress.

Horses for courses and all that.

I quite like Katy Perry.

Teenage dream
California dream
Fireworks
Roar
I kissed a girl

To name a few

She's also written for Brittany spears, Kelly clarkson, Nikki minaj. In fact, she's been a songwriter longer than a singer.

I may not particularly like she but I respect a woman who can make it to the top of her field using her talent. (But I do love roar, it's a great feminist track)

OnHold Thu 02-Mar-17 16:47:54

Her latest song is a gteat song to jig about to

glenthebattleostrich Thu 02-Mar-17 16:48:55

And I'm going to learn to type in actual English on my phone at some point!

MrsGosling71 Thu 02-Mar-17 16:50:26

I like Katy Perry. Taylor Swift I cannot stand

NerrSnerr Thu 02-Mar-17 16:50:55

Horses for courses. She sings catchy pop songs and lots of people seem to like her. Good on her I say.

Loopytiles Thu 02-Mar-17 16:51:49

I really like those songs: so she's a talented writer, and performer: good for her!

witchofzog Thu 02-Mar-17 16:52:08

r0tring No I am definitely much worse. Much much worse . But then I am not a singer. I would say the same if I saw a building job that was rubbish too (I am not a builder either btw)

If she provides a good show with the confidence building etc then that is brilliant. I just don't feel she is the best singer. But she isn't alone with that. Loads of famous singers do not have fantastic voices imo
