I have both of Katy Perry's albums in my iTunes. I really like them, except for some songs like Peacock. I just think that Katy, or more precisely her team, is quite desperate to get another #1. Sure, she deserved it with the last singles to get to #1, even with the remixes of LFN & ET. But with all these anthics just to get to #1, it's quite desperate in my eyes, even if it's just marketing.
Has Katy Perry ever encountered an awards show that she wouldn't attend? She'd probably perform her new single at the Employee of the Month ceremony for her local Wal-Mart if it would help her reach #1.
