One of the things I remember hearing about Katy Perry
when she was on the Vans Warped Tour in 2008, was that she didn't allow anyone else to see her without her makeup on, trying to maintain her poptart image that she was just then nurturing. Since the release (and subsequent bomb) of her concert movie, PART OF ME, Katy has been more willing to show her fans that she isn't perfect looking without the wigs, the clothes and most importantly - the makeup. She's into asshole-ish dudes (although I still like Russell Brand - sue me! - and John Mayer is looking at "asshole-ish" in the rear view mirror) and this time she's following her new guy's lead by getting grimy and gritty on a backroad trip through the dirtier, less tropical parts of Hawaii during their New Year vacation together. The top and shorts are unflattering enough on her figure but with the thin, stringy hair that she's got after all that dying abuse and the lack of makeup showing what she looks like under the lacquer makes me wonder... in this state, would you still bang Katy Perry?
