As her new Migos-assisted single, ‘Bon Appetit,’ continues to underwhelm on the critical and commercial front, singer Katy Perry is seeing her name served a-front controversial headlines.
The singer/songwriter took to live stream to scold followers who weren’t exactly fond of her new blonde hairdo by stating:
“Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,'” she said before sarcastically replying, “Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.”
Granted, Perry has been a longtime supporter of the former president, but many didn’t appreciate the comparison – some even claiming the quote housed hints of “racism” and “privilege.” Needless to say, as the story made its rounds, Twitter was set alight.
