* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: As the insane prison guard in ''RaisingHope''. She's [[BeautyInversion near unrecognizable]] as well, having a facial hair problem and a bushy perm.

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: "E.T.": Multicultural relationships are ok, or Rape Is Love? This mainly depends on whether or not you're listening to the Music/KanyeWest version.

** The party line for "Chained To The Rhythm" and "Witness" is "becoming more 'woke'", but the videos and WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows suggest it's less that and more self-loathing of her persona and music in general.

* HilariousInHindsight: "E.T." was serviced three months before the release of the ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' expansion set of New Phyrexia, whose mechanics and storyline fit strangely well the lyrics.

Lines like "Infect me with your love and fill me with your poison" can make you wonder if Katy is actually a Phyrexian sleeper agent.

* UnfortunateImplications: Katy tends to suffer from this in spades, [[https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/katy-perry-her-most-controversial-moments.html/?a=viewall with entire articles being written about them.]] Among her most controversial are an AMA peformance that was accused of stereotyping East Asian culture as being all the same, the controversy over I Kissed a Girl and trying to use bisexuality for money and MaleGaze (as well as queerbaiting), and her mocking Creator/BritneySpears mental and emotional breakdown. Repeatedly. [[https://twitter.com/britneyspears/status/831238699111297024/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nme.com%2Fnews%2Fmusic%2Fbritney-spears-responds-to-katy-perrys-mental-health-joke-1975330 The last one actually prompted a response from Britney, who wasn't particularly happy about it.]]

* BrokenBase: All 3 of her albums (4, if you include Katy Hudson) are very different from each other, leading to a lot of disagreement as to which one is the "real" Katy. Also, ''One of the Boys'' and ''Teenage Dream'' are best known for their upbeat pop songs, even though both albums include a lot of very serious songs. Currently, she is very popular with gays, but also very popular with Christians, and very popular with teenage and younger girls (who don't even understand her lyrics), leading to a lot of disagreement as to how to interpret various songs, as well as which of her songs is best.

Added DiffLines:

** "Chained to the Rhythm" is one of her most divisive song yet, not surprisingly given its nature as a ProtestSong as well as its subject matter. Funny parody yet terrifyingly accurate and timeless? Or completely pretentious? A third camp agree with the message but wish that it was sung by anyone other than Katy or wish the song isn't in the disco-dancehall genre as it lessen the impact.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The opening of "Chained To The Rhythm" is an establishing shot of the amusement park. For [[https://i.imgur.com/slTVQ3u.gif a split second]], almost the entire park vanishes, leaving behind a handful of rides and bits of rollercoaster floating on air. It may have been [[FreezeFrameBonus intentional]], but if it is, it's impossible to distinguish from a mistake.

** The Katy Kats and [[Music/LadyGaga Little Monsters]] had a tense relationship for awhile, but it blew up ever since Applause vs. Roar and never died down since. Both sides often wait until the other underperforms to go in for cheap shots and proclaim the singer as being "over."

Unlike Swift, Gaga and Perry are good friends and the former defended Perry's 2013 controversial American Music Awards performance of "Unconditionally", in which [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy she was dressed as a geisha]].
