Katy Perry: ‘I’m The Positive Girl Among My Pop Peers’

Published: Wednesday 11th Dec 2013 by David


If this year’s charts are anything to go by, it would seem positivity most certainly pays when it comes to Pop music.

Just ask Katy Perry.

Outperforming each and every one of her closest competitors with the motivational ‘Roar’ and its PG approved LP ‘Prism’, the entertainer has seen her ‘light and bright’ brand kick glitter in the faces of her ‘wilder’ contemporaries.

This, not going unnoticed by the ‘Teenage Dreamer’, who has billed herself the ‘positive girl’ among her peers.

Quote below…

Speaking to Hearst’s ‘Marie Claire‘, she shared:

“I feel like my secret magic trick that separates me from a lot of my peers is the bravery to be vulnerable and truthful and honest. I think you become more relatable when you’re vulnerable. When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be ****ed with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall.  I feel I’m the positive girl among my pop peers, but I’m OK with that. I’m happy I’m the light.”

    As generic and basic as Katy is,she’s right. I never see any drama circulating her. She always wants the best for everyone

    @beyhive_minaj niether does taylor swift but you dont see her gloating about it

    Girl! The important thing is you can´t sing without autotunes and you rlease music a 15 years old girl would release. I give Prism a 5 out of 10. Really basic. Only good song is Legendary Lovers (that one is a 7 or 8, although still corny).
    Now that I saw the recent big nomination for the grammy for the Album of the Year Sarah Bareilles got, I checked her album… and I have to say Roar and that Brave song are almost the same lol, I didn´t pay attention when everybody said it last summer but damn it!!! Only difference is that Sarah seems to be able to sing. And her album is pretty good. I told you grammys are still the best awards we´ve got left, with exceptions but oh well.

    LOL true dat. Kitty Furry p*ssy ALWAYS pitchy as phuck.

  8. Dean December 11, 2013

    I agree with her, she doesn’t try hard like the others, she seems very calm about this whole fame thing, her success comes from above, she is in peace with herself with is refreshing to see in a young celebrity, Rihanna is amazing but she has some problems with drugs, Miley is not even worthy to comment about it, Gaga is losing an inch of her brain each day so while Katy might not seen as stronger as the others, she is very aware of the business and i believe that’s why she acts this way, there are real secret mean girls in the industry, see (Bionic fiasco), sometimes what goes around….comes back around.

  9. Realest December 11, 2013

    Well Katy doesn’t it state in your “Kids Bop” music contract that you keep a positive image for your Disney Radio tunes?

  10. Brazilian Beyoncé!!! December 11, 2013

    She’s a liar she’s not positive.
    Look @ her and Rih at the 2012 Vmas they were shady and laughing @ people. Even miley is more of a positive role in Pop girls. Katy is just as rihanna.. Untalented and very shady.

    She’s not Positive.

  11. Brazilian Beyoncé!!! December 11, 2013

    Miley is positive!!

  12. Dean December 11, 2013

    It happen in pop music, just like Born this Way and Express Yourself are ALMOST the same, right, i give PRISM 8 out 10, it’s a great pop album, bwt, isn’t “Obsessed” the type of music a 15 years old girl would release?

  13. Brazilian Beyoncé!!! December 11, 2013

    ARTPOP & Bangerz are the best Pop albums for this year tbh…

  14. Kiiii December 11, 2013


    not the only one. what about the badgaaal?

  15. INCAS December 11, 2013

    yea but Taylor Swift sleeps around…

  16. DOSSOME December 11, 2013

    WTF is she talking about?

  17. JOHNVIDAL December 11, 2013

    LOL hmm NO “Obsessed” is not what a 15 years old girl would release. It is not legendary Mariah Carey´s best song, it may be too bad coming from her, but it´s not corny or basic like the whole Katy´s discography is (on purpose). Have you seen the way she dresses? It´s all fake. Not even Ariana Grande is that childish 🙂
    Prism is a 8??? What do u give Amy Winehouse “Back to Black” then? Or “Thriller”??? A 15 out of 10?
    I know about Born This Way, and that´s why I wanted to point this out. People still talk about that while Katy seems to get a pass, when it´s a way worse case. At least Gaga´s song was only one among a lot of good and different songs with true vocals in a whole album, what´s Katy´s excuse? It´s not even that clear she´ll get more than one #1 single this time, Katy´s and Rihanna´s only saving grace.
    Excuses for stanning for the worst in the business are quickly getting out of hand. Britney is already out, not even her fans can defend anything anymore. Katy´s day will come, she´s not even such an amazing run now that she is at her peak to begin with. Only legendary talents prevail.

  18. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 11, 2013

    @Molly Taylor used to be positive,now she’s just a w**** who sleeps around with anyone and uses men to help her come up with new material

  20. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 11, 2013

    Did anyone catch that Gaga shade??

    When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be ****ed with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall.

    Shade galore darling shade galore. Yassssssss.

    But I agree, Katy is a pop sweetheart. Rihanna is a bad girl, Gaga is a delusional drugged out b****, Miley is….well Miley and Beyonce is a thieving, stealing, plagiarizing scum bucket.

    So yes, I agree with everything.

  21. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 11, 2013

    @Lovebird are we supposed to believe that you are really a lady gaga and beyonce hater? You probably lock yourself in your room and dance to their songs

  22. zoom December 11, 2013

    she’s throwing shade at rihanna. Rihanna is known to talk sh** about other performers behind the scenes, she talked sh** about adele. She thinks her untalented a$$ can’t be touched

  23. MangiMusic December 11, 2013

    And this is why she’s my idol, staying true to her Christian upbringing.

    i am SCREAMINGGGGG at these comments. DRAG HA!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. HELL NO December 11, 2013

    “I’m happy I’m the light.” B*tch trying to say the other girls are in the dark? Girl please, Rihanna is more respected than you with the most number 1’s, Gaga is more creative than you, Beyonce can actually sing unlike you, Taylor writes her own s***, Miley is more talked about than you, Lana is doesn’t make albums of basic relatable s*** that you, and Ke$ha doesn’t try to act like a sweet little b*tch that has no flaws like you do. If anything you’re the dark. You pay people to write s*** that newborns can relate too, then record it with auto-tune to the 10th power because you cant sing and then give interviews talking about “well i wanted this album to be more mature and dark sounding” when really you didnt write that s*** and no “mature” person buys that s***… Fake A$$ B*tch.

  27. FutureCIARA December 11, 2013


    When compared to people like Rihanna, who is like The Devil….

    You put on a good angel act Ms.Perry.

    Keyword is “ACT”

  28. NAVY COMMANDER December 11, 2013

    Translation: I make basic music for teens

  29. ATM JAM December 11, 2013

    @molly yeah right, taylor always has some drama surrounding her because of the s*** she talks on her ex’s. that was a really bad example on your part.
