Katy Perry Suffers From 'Pot Calling Kettle' Syndrome, Slams Lady Gaga's 'Alejandro' Video

Lady Gaga's 'Alejandro' music video premiered yesterday and has received a lot of feedback; some good others bad with the majority of its viewers being left frightened to ever press play on another Lady Gaga video again [raises hand].

One of Gaga's fellow artists and in my opinion direct competitions, Katy Perry, was very vocal about the video via her Twitter saying that she felt the video was done in bad taste because it mocked religion.

In her words,

Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke. {Source}

I can myself appreciate religion for its presence and its ability to keep the people around me sane but lets not act like religion doesn't have any bones in its closet that has spilled out from time to time.

Besides, is this coming from Ms. "I Kissed A Girl"?

Not sure if she felt so passionately about it because it used religion or because her video for "California Gurls" dropped the same day and not too many people knew about it.

If you can remember, Katy Perry was a big deal right before Lady Gaga dropped the video for "Just Dance" and Gaga became a big deal soon after that. Not saying Katy is being bitter (I agree the video was on some next ish) but the timing and circumstances is a bit telling.

Anyway, Lady Gaga kind of responded on her Twitter to everyones not-so-sweet opinions of the video.

In Gaga's words,

"So many will try to destroy me. So many, over and over, coming in periods of greatness. But in this period, I cannot be broken."
