  1. 'Witness' has long been regarded a very difficult album to love, and “Bon Appetit” is perhaps the best example of why. “Bon Appétit” is a decidedly left-field choice for a single that eschews the candy-coated formula of prior Perry eras. However, that’s precisely why the track deserved more than its lukewarm response, and also why Witness remains one of Katy’s strongest albums. Let’s be clear: the era was a mess and Katy made some truly ridiculous missteps during the promotion, but don’t get it twisted—despite the few duds it encloses, Witness is an album stacked with capital-b BOPS, amo
  2. (two minute read) Katy Perry has recently celebrated her three biggest achievements in years; the 10th year anniversary of Teenage Dream, the release of her highly anticipated fifth studio album Smile, and the birth her lovely daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. Behind the radiating positivity, the underwhelming sales of her newest record might wrap it up as it predicted to debut at #5 on Billboard Chart 200, breaking her #1 streak on the album chart. With the continuous decline from the public and sales, could it be the sign of her goodbye? Or has Perry already decided to step back from the music scene and be a full time mom? It is a common knowledge that Perry signed a contract with Capitol Records back in 2007, having a record deal of five studio albums. Throughout her career, she generated countless radio and chart topping hits, sold hundred million of records and some sold out shows from her previous world tours; California Dream: World Tour, Prismatic World Tour and Witness: The World Tour. Following the release of Smile, it does not only mark her comeback from 2017's Witness, but also the end of her contract. Capitol has been very vocal about the disappointing reception of Perry's fourth studio album, as the favourite California Gurl has continuous to underperform even after testing the waters by releasing her droplet singles like Never Really Over, Harley's In Hawaii and Never Worn White. The label did not even bother to overwhelmingly support and promote Perry's newest project. And by listening to a message recorded by Perry included in the target and international edition of the album, some lines might support the idea of her stepping back from the music scene as the voice memo's suggested: Perry said, Perry sentiments as she continued. At this point, you can easily hear the tone of contentment after the effort of bouncing back from 2017's hate train. So far, Capitol Records and Perry herself have not made any official statement [yet] subjecting the plans after her newest album or the contract. And that is why many of her fans are raging about, the lack of direction of this record and the way of handling Perry. As a fan hearing her recorded message, it strucks me that maybe it is really a time for her to step back. Not to completely quit the industry but to take her time to rebuild and grow as a woman, a mother and an artist. Maybe an artist not as Katy Perry, but as Katheryn Hudson. Nonetheless, if this Perry's newest offering is her farewell, we profoundly appreciated it and it did brought back our smile. Thank you, Katy Perry! Related:
  3. Queen of business I feel like she kinda missed the boat on NFTs though Exhale, you buying?!
  4. “Witness' 4th Year Anniversary” On June 9, 2017, Katy Perry released her fourth studio album, Witness. The record explores the themes of self-empowerment and ***ual freedom. It debuted at No.1 on Billboard Chart 200 with 180K units, sold 804K adjusted units worldwide by the end of 2017 and [now] with over 4 million units. The accompanying concert tour, Witness: The World Tour, with 115 shows that ended in 2018, grossed $124.2 million. The album has more than 6.5 billion cumulative streams, whereas on YouTube it garnered 4.5 billion views and 1.2 billion streams on Spotify. Despite the poor reception, it became one of the fastest female albums to top the US iTunes within 10 minutes and spawned hit singles like the Top 10 debut Chained To The Rhythm, the viral Swish Swish and the controversial Bon Appétit. Thoughts and favorites?
  5. 13 years ago, Katy Perry released her debut album (well, if we pretend 'Katy Hudson' didn't exist). I remember listening to 'I Kissed a Girl' for the first time and becoming obsessed with it. Of course, I was going to go deep into the album. The album was not very well received by critics, getting a score of 47 by Metacritic Looking back, many lyrics are quite problematic and cringy; however, I think that pop rock sound suited Katy's vocals pretty well (in the studio, because back then she wasn't the best live vocalist) I think the singles were a good representation of the record. We all know the hits 'I Kissed a Girl' and 'Hot N Cold'. Here in Latin America, I'd say the latter was even bigger. 'Thinking of You' is a beautiful ballad and the aesthetic in the music video is gorgeous. 'Waking Up in Vegas' is sort of underrated in my eyes, so I'm glad she's using it to promote her residency. As for the rest of the songs, 'One Of The Boys', 'If You Can Afford Me', 'Ur So Gay' and maybe even 'Self Inflicted' are definitely problematic today, but they are perfect examples of the pop rock sound mentioned before. 'Mannequin' and 'Fingerprints' are good instances of this sound too. The songs I keep coming back to are two of the ballads: 'I'm Still Breathing' and 'Lost'. They are heartfelt and problem-free. It's crazy to have witnessed the growth to stardom Katy had... and then falling out of it... Either way, this is the album that started it all. What do you think, Exhale? Is it a good album or has it aged like milk in the counter during summer days?
  6. Katy Perry reveals "Passenger," a song that landed on Britney Spears' eighth studio album, Britney Jean, was her favorite song that she wrote but gave to another singer. "Passenger" was initially intended for her 3rd studio album, 2013's Prism. "I loved when Britney did 'Passenger,' which is a song I wrote with Sia and Diplo a long time ago... I liked that song. It's a song about control and letting go... which is a constant message I have to tell myself all the time because I'm a control freak, and in these times I'm just spiraling." She also mentions Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hookup" and a Selena Gomez track. The demo:
  7. Then: Now: Katy Perry's biggest deal looks like a hit after all. Less than a month after the announcement of her Las Vegas residency, ᑭᒪᗩY, the ticket sales of the 8-show concert spanning from December 29, 2021 to January 15, 2022, appears to be steady as it manages to sell almost 70% of its seats just by the end of May. Pushing the luck of her upcoming ‘on-demand’ residency, Perry has added 8 more shows from March 2, 2022 to March 19, 2022. These are the old and new dates: Related:

  9. DISCLAIMER: This thread hasn't been opened to ignite an internet war and to raise a discussion on a realistic and unbiased ground. So please do not see the thread as a medium to start Exhale War -1882 Hello Everyone! Last year and this year have proven to be Dua's years. She has completely taken over the pop scene with her sophomore era "Future Nostalgia" which has become even bigger this year. The album has won a grammy, has over 2 billion streams, bagged up 4 smash hits, is the best selling female album of the US (2021), has received massive critical acclaim, sold 4 million units WW and is now on track to get Dua's first ever #1 with Levitating. Not only does it have huge success, but has also been credited to the revival of disco music and 80s synth pop we witnessed last year. So It'd be pretty much an understatement to say the era was just huge, considering that it has become some of the biggest pop eras of the past 5 years and has become a milestone in Dua's career and legacy in the future. However, a worry has arise among pop culture stans who believe that with the trajectory Dua is heading with is similar to that of Katy Perry's legacy. Why? Well... In 2008, a 23 year old Katy Perry released the hit single "I Kissed A Gurl" which become a huge breakthrough for her career after her debut gospel-rock album "Katy Hudson" failed to even sell over 1k copies. She eventually released her second studio effort "One Of The Boys" which become a pretty big hit, staying 90+ weeks in the billboard hot 200, and selling 10 million units WW. However, this wouldn't be Katy's peak as she was destined for something even bigger. In 2010, she started her era titled as "Teenage Dream" which become a phenomenal success. Suddenly, Katy Perry become even bigger of a celebrity and pop star than she was earlier. She reached a peak that only a few such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Britney, Madonna and Michael have seen. She followed it up with an even more successful era which was "PRISM". Between 2008-2015, it could not be denied that she was a global phenomenon. Her songs were everywhere, the radio loved her, kids loved her, the GP loved her...However, this glory wouldn't be last for too long. Katy Perry followed up these 3 extremely successful eras with the notorious era "Witness". Let us just say, things didn't go the way Katy expected. We witnessed some of the greatest declines that year, as the album failed to half of the success of her previous eras. It's only savior was "Chained To The Rhythm" which was the only hit of the era. However, even this song could not help better the performance of the record. In the end, the album fell into oblivion and Katy Perry's earlier power faded away. She tried to come back with SMILE, but the era even ended up performing worse than "Witness", becoming her first album since Katy Hudson to sell below a 100k in its first week. Nowadays, Katy Perry is honestly seen as a memory of the millennials and generation z of their school/college days and has pretty much become a fad of the early to mid 2010's. So what is the elephant in the room? It's fair to say that Future Nostalgia is pretty much the "Teenage Dream" of her career. The era received humongous amounts of success and is already being seen as the biggest pop era of the 2020's. However, it is feared that she will end up as Katy. Akin, her third follow-up will become a massive era but from there onwards, she will fall into oblivion. Why? Because she has many of the things that Katy had which inevitably led to her downfall. Dua despite the massive amount of support she has does not have a strong and loyal fanbase. She has the GP's support but will she end up as Katy Perry if the GP lose interest in her or her stans will be able to keep her relevant. Second, her team has been doing amazing in promoting but will this lead to overexposure. Thirdly, will Dua be able to blend with the shift in pop culture and will competition and market be much more higher? So what do you guys think? Do you agree? Disagree? Lemme know
  10. Katy Perry sang a throwback during the American Idol finale. Hunter Mett and she performed a gorgeous rendition of it together. The original lands on Katy's sophomore album, One Of The Boys. She sounds amazing! No Katy hate plz. Related:
  11. With extravagant and fancy productions snipped in short storylines, Katy Perry is notably one of the acts who revolutionized the standards of music videos in the modern platform. And in light of the Pokemon's anthemic soundtrack, Electric, channeling her Katy Hudson days as she journeys from singing in farmer's market to becoming the pop icon we know today — here are the detailed lists of Perry's videography, ranking them from worst to best. Top 3 Worst Music Videos 3. Birthday (75M views) Despite PRISM being a lighthearted album, Birthday pushes through the extremities of entertainment in offensive ways possible. Dubbed as 'The World's Worst Birthday Party Entertainers', the impressive prosthetic disguises and Perry's convincing acts have not failed the viewers to feel guilty after cracking a grin, witnessing the comedic and terrible stunts with the celebrants. 2. Not The End Of The World (18M views) Embracing the resemblance with Zooey Deschanel, Perry's 'twin' sister has no qualms playing as her substitute in the short sci-fi flick, accompanying the worst track from Smile. The reference is already spoiled and old, making the music video unengaging. Also, the intentional low-budget aesthetic is so bland. 1. Swish Swish (640M views) The potential of Swish Swish to save the Witness era from chart embarrassment went down eventually. The music video is trend-chase, messy and a losing streak of Perry's consistent videography — an insult to Swish's fiery and club-banging grooves. Best Music Videos: Honorable Mentions Top 10 Best Music Videos 10. This Is How We Do (759M views) The music video is eye-candy, consisting of Perry's phenomenal fashion looks — from summer-y spandex crop tank and skirt to s-xy pepperoni pizza swimsuit. She has once again proved her undying appeal to pull off even the campiest dress, just get past those problematic cornrow braids. 9. Part Of Me (872M views) Portraying a broken-hearted woman, this will not be the first time Perry had her hair cut short as she joins the marines to move on from her cheating husband. The badass and convincing training scenes are exemplary, though they might be stereotypical at some point. Nonetheless, the dedication and efforts of Perry's team are laudable, knowingly the song and music video hit closer to her heart after the divorce with Russell Brand in 2012. 8. E.T. (593M views) The remix with Kanye West does not only elevate the track, but the accompanying video makes this fourth consecutive No.1 single from Teenage Dream an exceptional pop-perfect song. The cinematography and visuals are adroitly crafted while Perry is serving her alien robes out in the vacuum of space. The abrupt images of dying deer has effectively delivered weird and creepy vibes as it highlights the out-worldly nature of the music video. 7. 365 (135M views) Perry can act and this music video with Zedd is the prime example to prove that. The sci-fi love story casts her as a prototype android that temporarily lives with the human subject, Zedd, under research observation. The cinematography and aesthetic of the music video can easily match the quality of most movies produced by major studios. In addition, the dark and serious tones are beautifully crafted to cinematic scenes that captivate the viewers — and that glowing android eyes are really impressive. 6. Bon Appétit (1.1B views) Perry sashays away from the younger audience she usually targets following the release of her most controversial music video to date. The negative notations surrounding the pixie haircut, cannibalism and Illuminati speculations overshadowed the genius and underlying message behind the visuals. It figuratively exposes the s-xual objectification towards women and being manipulated by big companies and corporations. The concept is bold and unique as the process of preparing a five-star [Perry] Michelin is alluring enough to witness the human pie at the end of the video. 5. The One That Got Away (834M views) If the song alone moves you to tears, then the music video will double that heavy feeling. This modern take to Jack and Rose's tragic love story has been a fan-favorite, not only because of how relatable it already is, but the realism with the visuals is very persuasive. The music video is well structured, from the opening with Perry's senior years to the flashbacks of her young love, and the denouement where she revisits her deceased lover. 4. Wide Awake (960M views) It shares a similar message with its sister single, Part Of Me, but ventures into Alice In Wonderland's take of moving on. The music video feels warm especially if you have seen her 2012's music documentary as she references her previous album, singles and tour. There's still a serious undertone to it, showing how Perry is able to overcome the bitter sides of separation, media exposure and self-insecurities. And the symbolism of her innocence [younger self] guiding her present self of making better decisions are something we could take as an advice. 3. Firework (1.3B views) The music video lives up to the song's expectations as it distances itself from Perry's flamboyant persona. The concept has a universal appeal to it, having no complication with its intention to spread positivity. The simple yet familiar representations of domestic violence, *******uality, bullying and body image issues make the video emotional, relatable and personal, as everyone has metaphorically shoots firework out of their chests — meaning the light is always inside your heart. 2. Waking Up In Vegas (94M views) Perry's extravagant and fancy visuals are actually started back in 2009 — long before she puts on the blue wig, and this dazzling music video can attest to that. The storyline does not have a heavy narrative, but is easy to remember as the Vegas couple journeys their way to gambling success. The sequence of the scenes are fun and bright as it offers Perry's showgirl appeal. And with the glamorous Elvis dress up, glitters and bright lights, you might have missed the ultimate lesson behind the music video — sometimes it takes luck to succeed, but it takes discipline to keep it. 1. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) (1.3B views) Star-studded? Check. Petty love story? Check. Quick makeover? Check. The final piece to Perry's Spotlight Award has not only cemented her status as a pop giant at the time, but also secured her influence in bubblegum aesthetic. Just within the eight minute running time, the music video delivers an entertainment pack of gimmicks — like the ridiculous love triangle between Kathy, Everett and some 'nameless jock'. It is very engaging in comedic sense as they compared their rivalry to a sword fight. And the cameo of Queen Of The Friday, Rebecca Black, gives a perfect hand performing a 30-second makeover to Kathy Beth Terry. And though Feldman and Gibson's references are kind of dated, it still suited the throwback sense of the video. To conclude, Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) is widely influenced by an 80s aesthetic that Perry admits she's obsessed with, and undoubtedly the perfect visual representation of who Katy Perry is — party best friend, goofball, retro and colorful pop star. What y'all think of my rankings?
  12. Update: Katy released the music video for "Electric" (featuring Pikachu!). Earlier: It's been announced by the Pokémon Company that they're teaming up with Universal Music Group to create a "global music celebration" called P25 Music, featuring different artists, Katy Perry among them. ( ) A trailer has been released where we can hear a little bit of Katy at the end. The song is titled "Electric" and is rumored to drop on April 16th. From their site: Of course, every party needs a great playlist, and to that end, Pokémon is teaming up with Universal Music Group and some of the biggest names in music to create a global music celebration dubbed P25 Music. Expect new songs from a wide range of musicians, featuring rising artists and award-winning superstars like pop icon Katy Perry. More details, including additional performer surprises, will be announced throughout the year. It was on February 27, 1996 that the first ever Pokémon games, Red & Green, were released in Japan. They would come to America and the rest of the world in 1998 as Red & Blue. A new website has been launched as a "hub for fan celebrations" that will host several monthly events to celebrate this anniversary throughout the year.
  13. While Taylor Swift has continuous to dominate the Spotify, sales and chart perspectives, Katy Perry still managed to prove her undying streaming force on YouTube. The long history of rivalry between the two pop stars in YouTube's department was probably one of the biggest moments in pop culture. From Perry being the first woman to achieve the 1 billion views mark with Dark Horse to Swift following suit with Blank Space. Even the controversial releases of their diss tracks for each other; the Britney inspired music video of Bad Blood, and the meme-oriented visuals of Swish Swish. Today, Perry still has the torch as the undisputed Queen of YouTube. The music video of her smash hit, Roar, has generated more than 3.3 billion views, and named as the most watched female music videos of all time. While Bon Appetit has recently reached 1 billion views, making it her 6th music video to do so, and becoming the first woman to achieve such feat. Now: With the steady views of Dark Horse, garnering more than 1 million to 2 million views a day, the diamond certified trap song has finally surpassed Shake It Off, and officially named as the 2nd most watched female music video of all time. 1. Roar - 3.33B 2. Dark Horse - 3.04B 3. Shake It Off - 3.04B Congratulations, Katy Perry!
  14. Kind of surprised since her label has confirmed they're no longer funding the Smile era, but here we are. It’s like the Resilient (remix) so don’t expect heavy rotation and promotions. A lil’ excited tho. It's out!
  15. Katy Perry Tweeted "social media is trash." Where are the lies though. Especially Twitter. This is why communities like Exhale are the way to go. Yea, we have our own probs and whatnot, but imo most online communities are far less toxic than the free-for-all social media apps. Exhale, thoughts?

  16. Oh no I hope Katy's OK and I hope Luke Bryan gets better soon Tonight will be their first live show, so the other judges and Ryan Seacrest are probably not affected. Queen Paula Abdul will replace him as a temporary judge.
  17. Hi guys, this time I bring you a concept that I did a while back from "Bad Blood" with well-known singers, a video that YouTube shut down this year from my channel unfortunately, but allowed me to do it again and now it looks much better than before. I edited the hell out of it, so let's hope they don't take it down again. Hope you like. Enjoy it, and thanks to the users who tried to help me with the names for each singer.
  18. I'm looking for PROOF of this conspiracy theory that Myah Marie sang most/all of the vocals on Britney Jean. As in, actual factual evidence that this is supposedly the secret truth. Saying "I'm a fan, I know her voice" is not proof, it's opinion. Saying "Britney doesn't sound like that" or "The lyrics obviously aren't her style" is also not proof, it's more opinion. Please do not waste your time spamming this topic with your feelings and emotions and hunches. I want receipts, kiddos My opinion: I do NOT think that Myah Marie had as big a part in these vocals as most people say. When I hear Myah Marie's own songs and the demos that she makes for Britney, it's clear to me that their voices are similar but not identical. I'm not sure why everybody is so quick to completely forget power of electronic engineering of voices and pitch adjustment and all sorts of really nifty technology (e.g. Auto-Tune) used all over the music industry to intentionally modify the original vocals. Britney Jean was obviously heavily edited vocally and in its overall production. I don't find this as a reason to entertain this ridiculous theory that Myah Marie is the main vocalist here. But if your claims can be fact-checked, then let's hear them.
  19. To celebrate the 9th anniversary of the biggest e-commerce platform in South-East Asia, Katy Perry performed "Cry About It Later." Earlier: The Smile singer granted a three minute interview to anticipate her appearance, answering some personal questions and even sharing some interesting insights around the Perry-Bloom household. The upcoming event will offer the freshest performance off her fifth studio album, Smile, especially the fan-favorite track, Cry About It Later. The song is currently one of the best performing non-single track of the album in streaming services, garnering almost 30 million views on Youtube, and more than 25 million streams on Spotify. The celebration will be broadcast exclusively in Lazada’s official Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and TikTok pages.
  20. Katy Perry toys with the idea of a collab with Taylor Swift, saying “Can you imagine if Taylor and I work together, what we could do?" Do you think Taylor, who's collaborated recently with the likes of Bon Iver and HAIM, would agree to a Katy collab?
  21. Netflix will be honoring Dolly Parton in a star-studded event featuring Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Medes and more. This queen deserves everything nice! Good for her! Premiere date is April 7. Check out the trailer below:
