Katy Perry: Most overrated artist of the year

Posted on

Katyperry_lShe kissed a girl and she liked it. I get it. But a worldwide No. 1 gimmicky pop anthem plus a pretty face and wacky style makes not a proven superstar in my book. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Katy Perry‘s red-hot breakout hit, “I Kissed a Girl,” as much as the next Sapphic sister. But her second single, the aptly titled “Hot N Cold,” left me–well–cold. Ditto for the rest of her lackluster debut CD, One of the Boys, which failed to offer up anything else even as remotely fun, catchy, and irresistible as “I Kissed a Girl.” I keep waiting for her other songs to grow on me, but so far, that hasn’t happened. Is it too soon to dismiss her as a one-hit wonder? Methinks not.
