“Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,’” Katy jokes in the below video. “Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.”

    She really should blame trump. He obviously made her nuts.

    she’s unfortunately very bad at jokes. i saw her making spittle down her chin when she ate the unicorn frap and that was kinda awkward too. i hope she learns what’s funny before she posts anything else stupid. maybe take a comedy class lol.

    There was a blind item that said at a party recently she seemed “strung out,” strange, and on something… I know blind items aren’t very reliable, but I wonder if there’s any truth to it.

    everyone I know who’s ever encountered her out & about has said the same thing… there have also been pervasive rumors that her drug use is what prompted russell brand (who works REALLY hard at sobriety and is also super woke – something she obviously isn’t) to dump her so suddenly

  • Phil the Donahue

    She was abused as a kid so of course she’s on something. Most of the USA is on something. Adderall is speed and most can’t poop.

    Katy Perry and the hair jokes. She’s just plain awful. On several ocasions she made fun of Britney Spears for shaving her head when she was at the peak of her mental illness.
    -How are you doing Katy?
    -I’m fine, haven’t shaved my head yet. So I’m fine.
    I’m mean, how ridiculous is to bring up something from literally 10 years ago and make fun of someone who was strugling at the time?? And now, this pretty racist joke. She’s just an awful human being.

  • Sabrina

    People get offended about everything… What’s so bad about that joke?
