Fucked Up Frontman Disses Katy Perry

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/29/12)
Fucked Up's frontman Damian Abraham is not a fan of Katy Perry's new video, in which she plays a Marine. He recently tweeted, "Seeing Katy Perry as a soldier in 'Part of Me' really makes me think that we need to start a war so she can go die." A little while later he followed that up with, "Yes I'm aware my last tweet was kinda dumb but so is glamorizing war to sell records to idiots. Katy Perry Still Sucks."

I just loved this because it's Pink Eyes and Fucked Up.

I mean, I can't stand her music either, but that was kind of a dumb comment. (His second tweet is spot-on).

Pink Eyes is one of the best frontmen either way.

Sour grapes to me. Wishing death on anyone is pretty intense. The video sure did suck but this is eh.

I don't think his point has much to with pop music as much as it has to do with his views of war and violence. Could be wrong though.

I agree. I'd rather elitism in all its forms run its course and be over with.

I enjoy Fucked Up and all but that was a really stupid thing to say.

Think his glamorization of war was the issue more than pop-music. But, I don't wanna put words in his mouth.

maybe, but i feel like if the Black Keys or Titus Andronicus or someone did something similar, it wouldn't have caused him to take to his twitter like that- his issue seems to be with exploitation of war to move units, which would really be a bigger deal in the pop universe.

however, i could be wrong as well.

EDIT: but i do think saying that katy perry is somehow glamorizing war is a stretch. the video seems like it's probably void of any political commentary, or feelings one way or the other on war.
