MUSIC REVIEW: Katy Perry
There’s a reason why Lindsey Lohan is puckering up for Samantha Ronson and it isn’’t just because girls are cheaper to shop for. With a beat that sticks for hours at a time, it’s no wonder girls just wanna have fun. Katy Perry, the 23-year-old daughter of ministers, is celebrating girl power with her debut album, One of the Boys.
“I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf, while jacking off, listening to Mozart,” croons Perry in “Ur So Gay,” a hip pop dance off to her metrosexual ex. “Hot n Cold” has an infectious hook, where Perry sweetly claims that her man’s ways are a case of “love bipolar.” “If You Can Afford Me” should have been a fist-pumping melody for today’s material girls, but instead is an acoustic track with pseudo-punk influences. Although One of the Boys isn’t a bold, rebellious album, if it’s good enough for Madonna, then it may just be good enough for us.
