When in the business of blogging (“business,” by the way), one often finds themself face-to-face with a photograph that simultaneously compels and stumps them.
Case in point, Katy Perry’s sushi outfit from Japan’s MTV Video Awards:
Don’t even try to tell me that sushit is fresh
…which is obviously abhorrent. But the question is, why
? Is it simply the off-putting element of Perry’s racial drag: her geisha girl kimono, heavy-slanted eyeliner, noir-colored mop? Could it be that I’m simply confused, like Jen, about why the fuck this chick is famous
besides kissing a girl (also: who hasn’t?) and magically cloning the impish-smug-pinup facade of quirktress with the mostess, Zooey Deschanel? Do I immediately loathe those rocketing up the career ladder in their young twenties, because it reminds me that I’m now suffering through my criminally miserable late twenties, and soon will be too old to be an Influential Asian American Under 30
But I think it might just be the sweet shrimp at the crotch.
That just ain’t right. It ain’t.
