She gets really moody about her career sometimes but Charles has spoken of feeling like no one values her music and that she deserves more success than she has. Occasionally she seasons those comments with "I can always learn to dance if I want."
Cut to this song and video, blandly catchy song and elaborately choreographed video. It's like she only made this to appeal to the masses. If it doesn't, count the minutes until she disowns the song and abandons the upcoming album.

Katy’s downfall is really interesting to me. She was one of the biggest popstars and just seems so irrelevant these days. Most of her videos have little views compared to her hits – and her own fans constantly comment about her always being an icon, but her era being over. I am not even a KP fan, but I recently started watching lots of analysis videos about her and her career. Many people said that it was indeed her ditching the black hair and signature look that alienated her audience – especially when she chopped it all off. She was sexualized throughout her whole career (and sexualized herself), trying to move away from that definitely had an impact. Also, when I look at pictures like >>163565, I am really baffled. She looks so much better with dark hair. Her current style is such an odd choice.

And of course her weird behavior around the Witness era added to her career issues as well. She must have a really bad PR team: her performance with Migos, her breakdowns on Instagram, weird talkshow appearances… I remember that when Bon Appetit came out, I actually liked it, but the video and marketing really weirded me out. I showed it to my friends and they all felt uncomfortable somehow. KP legitimately scares me these days, but not in a good way. I still wonder what she will to in the future. Lady Gaga had similar issues with bad marketing/a bad team and a less successful era, but she had a great comeback in the end.

>but she had a great comeback in the end

Gaga's latest jazz album with Tony Bennett isn't selling well which has taken almost everyone involved by surprise.

The Katy P. analysis is interesting to me too. On top of your valid points, I think that Witness is just not good outside of two or three songs. After ditching Dr. Luke, she fought to work with Hot Chip and Purity Ring and then those songs and productions were watered down to the point of store brand mayo. However much of this can be blamed on the artist, I really think Katy makes horrific choices when left to her own devices.

>Gaga's latest jazz album with Tony Bennett isn't selling well which has taken almost everyone involved by surprise.
I was referring to the Artpop era that was a flop compared to her previous works and had the same issues with bad marketing strategies, weird single choices, etc. But Gaga managed to comeback after that. Funnily enough, Artpop is now praised by people who hated it before which I also find interesting. I didn’t know that her jazz album is not selling well, but I really appreciate her doing it nevertheless. I watched the documentary on Tony Bennett‘s last show with her and how she encouraged him to go on stage for a farewell concert. The way she treated him and her happiness when he recognized her despite having Alzheimer's were really wholesome.

No. 164529

Katy was massively popular with the GP at one point, but she kind of failed to truly connect with people and build herself a loyal core fanbase. Someone like Taylor managed to build an army of fans through a sort of parasocial relationship with her listeners (long before that term was tossed around like it is now kek). Those listeners will now buy all her merch and they'll never let her music fail. Other artists are able to find a cult following of loyal fans even if they don't make huge waves with the GP, artists like Lana Del Rey.

It seems to me like Katy Perry was never able to build a strong following, so when she fell out of favor with the GP she had nothing to fall back on.

No. 164546

>>164410
Agreed with all of this. I also feel like old 2010s celebs are just fading off tbh. Taylor Swift might be popular but on the grand scheme of things she's irrelevant

No. 164645

I'm just waiting for Lady Gaga to do something with her music. Don't get me wrong, her jazz collabs with Tony Bennett have been very good and sweet (I'm sad that it's not selling well) but I would love to hear something new from her. Chromatica's sounds and aesthetic are great and with potential but it's marketing was fucked over by the pandemic and bad quality music videos and now we've just gotten some remix album that sucks honestly.

No. 164802

>>164645
Agreed, the release date of Chromatica was really unfortunate. It is a good album with some great songs, but there was little she and her team could do in terms of PR. I also found her VMA performance (vidrel) a little cringeworthy if I am being honest and I don’t even know why. She is a great performer and had iconic award performances in the past, but here, she seemed a bit out of touch. I am still looking forward to her new music and whatever direction she will choose.

>>164529
That’s an interesting point! I think Adele is another artist that has a very loyal fanbase. I found her recent Instagram live really funny, she has 100% boomer energy, but I love that she is so unbothered and doesn’t try to be something that she is not. I think she is an artist that will definitely not fade away now that the 2010s are over, even though that was when she became big and when E-celebs and TikTok weren’t really a thing yet.
