Katy Perry's latest album has been out for ten months now, so naturally, it's time for a new music video.
The "How We Do" video features Perry, the world's oldest 13 year-old, doing what she does best: bopping about to a jaunty pop beat in cuh-razy but sexy costumes while displaying cultural and racial insensitivity.
To be fair, as far as Katy Perry videos go, this one is much lower on the problematic scale than usual. So maybe she's learning? Katy Perry is almost able to make a vapid, fun music video without reverting to stereotypes or cutesy but distasteful references to other cultures.
And before you have a chance to say it, I will: Obviously Katy Perry doesn't give a damn. Duh. She isn't even able to wrap her mind around the concept of cultural appropriation, so I don't expect anything resembling awareness from her. But maybe a little positive reinforcent will help. Almost, Katy. Almost.
