i think enough time has gone by that i can finally say that i am sure that my disbelief at katy perry's success is less about my age than about her stunning mediocrity. most pop stars grow on me over time; i eventually hear what it is that they are doing well, as performance if not music, but katy baffles me. i liked this times article on jennifer lopez whose musical talent is, um, significantly less than that of her spouse, but who is a much, much big star. but i get her. katy perry, not so much. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/05/arts/music/jennifer-lopez-and-the-star-making-machinery-of-idol.html?ref=americanidol
I confess I actually like "E.T.".
