Whenever I write about Katy Perry, I usually say “the breasts of Katy Perry” or “the boobs of Katy Perry” did xyz, because clearly she can’t make listenable music. Katy Perry is where she is today because of her looks, i.e. her breasts. A body can carry you far in America, especially if you’re a woman.
And if there’s one body part you would want to have going for you, it’s….the assets Perry has. They can sell any product you can imagine. If you’re a man, sorry, you don’t have a body part with similar marketing power. However, Katy Perry and the boobies of Katy Perry could still not win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals are ditching Katy Perry‘s “Roar” after unveiling the song as the team’s pregame, in-game and postgame anthem.
“I think some fans proved that there’s an expectation that when the team takes the field, there should be more of a hard-rock, classic-rock song and I know that’s what we’re going to do this game,” the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs, Jeff Berding, said. “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.”
Here’s the Katy Perry offering that the Bengals said. (Note: the song is awful/terrible, just as you would expect from a Katy Perry song, and she doesn’t start showing off her body/major cleavage until after 2-1/2 minutes in.)
So when you watch this music video on mute, just skip ahead to the middle.
