Is Katy Perry Body Shaming?

January 15, 2014 2 min read

Katy Perry is starting to back pedal out of the provocative costumes and nudity of late.  During a conversation with NPR she told radio host Scott Simon that she's been noticing a trend among her fellow female pop stars.  Getting naked. She was quoted in the interview saying,
"I've been naked before but I don't feel that I have to always get naked to be noticed.  But its interesting to see...I'm not talking about anyone in particular.  I'm talking about all of them...it's like everybody's so naked.  It's like, put it away.  We know you got it.  I got it too."
Katy said she's perfectly aware of her past offenses but she realizes know that she has other cards in her deck to play, not just the sexy body one. It's incredibly interesting to watch the debate go on in Hollywood about what the right amount of skin is and how often and what too little skin is that turns you into a prude.  There is such a fine line that so many celebrities find a hard time walking.  I doubt Katy Perry is truly body shaming.  She is, in my opinion, expressing the view that there is more to music and a female's career than how much skin to show.  Even the broader point that there is much more to women in general than their bodies and how good their bodies look. Body shaming encompasses so much from all the belief that women should never expose their bodies to the belief that only those that look the most beautiful and the most in shape should have that privilege.  Katy seems like she is trying to find a balance between being provocative and having only the music speak for you. Who knows, maybe Katy Perry is secretly trying to revolutionize the pop music industry.
