Take your "Katy Perry" and Shove It.

OK, that may sound a tad bit harsh.
Let me just clarify ... I have nothing against Katy Perry, on a personal level. She's never wronged me in any way.

I'm definitely the "Anti-Fan" when it comes to her music, but nothing personal, like I said.

More than anything, I'm disappointed in the mass population.

To start ... I swear,  if I hear, "Hey, I love your Katy Perry bangs!" one more time ... I can't be held responsible for what I do to that person. Just saying. I'm so sick of the ignorance!

And yes, I deem this to be "historical ignorance."

Surely, people ... SURELY you have heard of
Bettie Page!?!

Katy Perry can replicate the Bettie Page bangs all day long, as far as I'm concerned. I mean, I do ...
But people can't really be so shallow as to believe she invented this look??
Her hit song, "I Kissed a Girl" might be revolutionary to some, but this hair style is VINTAGE, people!
You are simply looking at a modern Rockabilly resurgence in our pop culture ...

Let's take a closer look at some modern celebrities with so called "Katy Perry Bangs," shall we? ...



Where do you weigh in on the subject?

I guess you could say, imitation is the highest form of flattery.

But I'm also inclined to say that I love the Rockabilly style because it is relatively unique.
Are we in danger of losing ourselves and our identity to a teeny bopper sensation??
Love to hear your thoughts on this one ;) ....


  1. Didn't YOU have the Katy Perry bangs before Katy Perry did? Jus'sayin' We could be calling them the Jenny bangs, which I would actually prefer. So there's my 2 cents worth.

  2. Haha.
    That's true, Roxie! I did!
    Although ... I don't want the credit. ;)

  3. I get irritated by all Historical Ignorance. EX: "Green Day was the first Punk band" Really!?! When I still had the bangs I definitely heard my share of "I love your hair. It's like Katy Perry's" - annoying.
    I think if Katy Perry, or any other Tartlet emulating the Rockabilly look, were to respect where the style came from a little more, then it wouldn't be so irritating. Give some props or nods to the era you're molding your look after. And I don't know, she actually might be a huge fan of that culture....maybe her fans are just dumb?

  4. Tartlet ... hehe ... That's why I love you Nikki. Because you use words like that ;)
