Katy Perry For World Tour…. Zzzzzzzzzz


Tickets go on sale
Nov. 14 for erstwhile Christian rocker turned lez icon.


By Mandy Rodgers


So she kissed a girl, liked it and now gets to tour 50
cities in five months? Not a bad break, considering Lindsay Lohan did the same
thing and only got a short spot on Ugly



Katy Perry, in case you’ve been under a rock lately. had a
breakthrough hit with this year’s catchy, yet isolating single “I Kissed a
Girl.” Blogs went nuts. “Is this girl a bisexual? Who is Katy Perry in the
first place?” Those who look for controversy, found it. “How dare she discuss
such things.” And cherry chap stick lost its once innocent connotation to one
of a different, more adult tone.



Perry’s album One of
the Boys
contains songs like “Hot N Cold,” “If You Can Afford Me” and the
very peaceful, lacking uproar “Ur So Gay,” which are all sure to be heard on
the tour. For the North American dates, Alphabeat will join her, and for the
European concerts, 3OH!3 will perform.



Yes, Perry has had a successful year full of tongues wagging
about her lyrics and teens excited about listening to pop/rock their parents
would staunchly disapprove of but thinking of Perry without kissing and
sexuality is nearly impossible. Perhaps the First World Tour will give
audiences a different perspective on the singer/songwriter. Maybe she’ll even
break out some tracks from her 2001 Christian album, Katy Hudson (her birth name changed after actress Kate Hudson’s
success) and really force everyone to rethink her career and its future.
