After Lady Gaga released her music video for “Alejandro” complete with nun and S&M imagery, Katy Perry tweeted: Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke. People assumed she was talking about Lady Gaga because clearly she was but she told EW that was not the case. Perry says it was “more of a non-specific, general thing.”
“But everybody made it out to be a cat fight. I think people love cat fights. It’s a turn-on for people.”
Besides, if there’s anyone it may have been directed at, it was her husband-to-be.
“The other day he was yelling out the window. He said something a bit off color, kind of blasphemous about the Lord Jesus Christ, and I smacked him for it.” Surely that’s not what Jesus would do?
“It’s just kind of deeply rooted inside of me, and hard to get away from. But everybody knows I am a massive Lady Gaga fan. If you look through my tweets, there will be about 10 of them that say that I am obsessed with her.”
“Lately, I’ve just been seeing some things that are kind of…not something I would do, I guess,” she said. “Like, you know when Madonna was on the cross? And, like, sometimes my boyfriend will say things that are ehhh… From where I come from, it’s hard for me to say that…”
“[People say] I’m a very hypocritical person, ‘How do you say that and [sing] ‘I Kissed a Girl’? Spirituality and sexuality are two separate things. When you decide to put it into the same subject, it gets interesting for some people.
According to Katy Perry’s line of reasoning, as long as she isn’t nailed to a cross while singing “I Kissed a Girl” or a cross from a necklace isn’t dangling between her tits while she’s pushing them out for attention, then it’s not blasphemy. I like the way she thinks. Whenever I want to have sex before marriage with a hardcore Christian I’ll just tell her God won’t mind as long as we don’t do it around any religious symbols.
