Katy Perry: Wild West Birthday Ho Down Throwdown!

Katy Perry: Wild West Birthday Ho Down Throwdown!

Katy Perry dresses up as a sexy cowgirl and rides a mechanical bull for her Wild West Birthday Ho Down Throwdown on Friday (November 11) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old pop superstar (in Jeremy Scott) celebrated her belated birthday with comedian husband Russell Brand, who dressed up as an Indian.

“I like all my friends to have a good time,” Katy shared of her all-out birthday bash. “I want them to have an experience.”

Earlier today, JustJared.com posted saloon photo booth pics and details from the ho down throwdown.

Party guests pictured here: Adam Lambert and boyfriend Sauli Koskinen, Chuck‘s Zachary Levi, Kyle XY’s Matt Dallas and musician Blue Hamilton, Abduction’s Will Peltz and Just Jared’s Jared Eng, Anna Faris and husband Chris Pratt, Robyn, stylist Johnny Wujek, and designer Markus Molinari getting a lap dance.

FYI: Katy‘s actual birthday was October 25 – she celebrated with a few friends at London’s Electric Cinema, where guests were treated to a showing of the cult classic Ghostbusters.

proof you can succeed with zero talent

I agree with Yaas. Wouldn’t natives find both the ‘Indian’ part and the outfit insulting? I wish people would be more cafeful with outfits like these.

@bobbyweiner: Calling native-americans “indians” is disrespectful. That arrogant, ignorant assshole christopher columbus is the root of this disrespectful behaviour.

she still has that ugly pink hair

The most inclusive measure of the U.S. unemployment rate—what is called U-6 and includes discouraged and involuntarily underemployed workers as well as unemployed ones looking for jobs (unemployment in the narrow sense)—has risen from a shade above 7 percent in 2000 to a shade above 16 percent at present.

Actually, what’s more disrespectful is dressing up ‘like an indian’. imagine dressing up like an African-American or a Chinese individual. It suggests there’s a stereotypical look for a race of people. This is very unfortunate.

It isn’t that serious. It’s just a party. I really don’t see what’s wrong in dressing up as whatever for fun. Perhaps it’s because in my country things like that aren’t a big deal. There is plenty of actual racism and hatred in the world to worry about!

The theme of this party was Wild West, which doesn’t even exist anymore. It doesn’t reflect on anyone today. No one’s being mocked here and costumes are just that: costumes.

awkward couple ever! this is just silly.

@YAAAS HONEY!!!: Classic…preaching respect by showing no respect. You will have to educate me in your advanced rhetoric methodoligy.

Jesus Americans are stupid. Look in your dictionaries, if you have one and search for Indian. The FIRST definition will say it relates to indigenous peoples of America. Get a grip

Regarding the clothes: where do you draw the line on what’s “disrespectful” ? Does dressing up as a ****** nurse imply all nurses are like that? Is men dressing as women OK or not? Wearing a kimono if you’re not japanese, or a sombrero if you’re not mexican? How about celebrating Cinco de Mayo or St. Patrick’s Day if it’s not your culture?

Relating to Native Americans; is celebration of Thanksgiving ok?

Everything can be offensive depending on how you look at it. IMO, dressing up for a party is harmless activity.

@YAAAS HONEY!!!: Don’t listen to the hate, thank you for defending our heritage! :)

People who don’t get how disgusting this is are embarrassing and show how bad the education system in the states is. But the fact is America was only possible because the Indigenous peoples who lived here were systematically killed and interned in camps. What Russell was wearing was the same as wearing blackface but I’m not surprised. Both Katy and Russell do nothing but show how prejudiced and uneducated. She in particular is a bigot. Maybe next year she can do plantation owners and slaves, or maybe next year can be an Auschwitz theme right? Nazis and Jews. Fun and cool right everyone? THink about it before you comment.

What a fortune that in these times of crisis can count on so serious people!!

aWWWW go and chuck a tanty you big babies. I am Danish and do not get offended when people dress up as viokings or in our national costume. Just get over it. Find something else to whinge about !!! Like its too hot or too cold!!! Honestly you guys are so “special” arent ya’ll…….

@BEAN:
Dictionaries do not always reflect what is preferred or what is politically correct or what is socially acceptable. Literal definitions of words aren’t the only definitions that exist. Read a book.

@angela:
Look up “cultural appropriation”, dude.

Correction @ 11/18/2011 at 3:10 am

@angela: That’s right. You are Danish. And you still have a country right? Denmark is still there. Do British, French, and Spanish people now live there? And when people dress up in traditional Danish dress, do they reduce it and turn it into a crude stereotype that portrays your culture as primitive and animalistic? No. How dare you equate your national dress with a costume meant to mock and demean a race of people who had genocide committed against them. I’m not surprised that you would have that opinion since in WW2 Denmark didn’t resist Nazi occupation, since you were technically ‘independent’ aka in agreement. Disgusting.

Coming from a Native American, very connected to my tribe and community, this IS offensive.

My ethnicity is not a costume and I don’t really like it when people mimic and fetishize my culture through tried stereotypes that were once used to dehumanize my ancestors. Our history is one of stolen land, broken promises, forced removal and relocation, genocide, reservations, boarding schools for beating the “Indian” out (these existed until the 1980s), involuntary sterilization. Mockery, on top of all that, is a tough pill to swallow.

Is it ok to have a Nazis and Jewish party?! Or how about Plantation Owners and Slaves party, maybe with a little blackface?!

From a Native American point of view, this IS offensive. My ethnicity isn’t a costume and I don’t appreciate my culture being mimicked or fetishized using stereotypes that were once used to dehumanize my ancestors.

A Nazi/Jewish party is not ok. A Master/Slave party is not ok. Neither is this.
