Katy Perry was in England to perform on their version of The X-Factor, where she donned a sexy tiger costume and got carried around by dudes in eye shadow. Typical Katy live show weirdness, but at least she was making with the boobs. I recently found myself in a situation where I had no choice but to listen to her latest album. It wasn't my first choice for soundtracks on a drive down the California coast, but then again it wasn't my car and more importantly the person driving pays extra special attention to me, therefore she pretty much gets to have her way in all things. So yeah, I wasn't all that excited about the album. The one thing I will say in Katy's favor is that she has a very strong voice. Even if the songs weren't my thing, I was impressed with how well she sings them. If she ever gets to work with a truly great songwriter, she'd no doubt create an album I'd be glad to listen to.
