** In "Dark Horse", the song mentioned the Greek goddess Aphrodite... in a music video sets in ''Memphis, ancient Egypt''. Creator/ToddInTheShadows had a field day with this.

* FauxSymbolism: At the 2012 Grammys she performed "E.T." (a song about her love story with RussellBrand), the power went out mid-song and she then started singing "Part of Me", a song about her break-up with Travie [=McCoy=] reworked to fit her divorce with Brand.

* NightmareFuel:
** The "California Gurls" video has some, [[SchmuckBait believe it or not]]. A woman entrapped in Jell-O, and one wrapped up like candy, looking ''totally lifeless''. Okay, Katy lets them out, but it's a song about how girls from California are the best, not "[[Music/LadyGaga Papa-fucking-razzi]]"!
** Also she and her friends eat a living gingerbread man. He responds only by smiling. Also that last one may have been inspired by (or copied from, if you prefer) a scene in Music/TomPetty's NightmareFuel-filled video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0JvF9vpqx8 Don't Come Around Here No More]]". Considering that in Petty's video it's a woman dressed as the main character of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' being eaten after becoming a cake from the neck down, and she looks pretty horrified about it, what happens to the gingerbread man is not so bad by comparison.
** The music video for "E.T.", apart from the whole Rape Is Love possible interpretation, has a tendency to flicker weird images; among them, [[NukeEm a nuclear bomb going off]], [[AnachronismStew WWII soldiers being killed by a landmine]], [[{{Squick}} writhing millipedes]], [[WorldWarThree F-14s dropping bombs]], and [[NightmareFuel cheetahs killing various kinds of prey]]. And then there's the video itself, which includes Perry's creepily long fingernails, Perry turning into a female satyr, a naked astronaut revived from stasis, and a shot of what's implied to be a destroyed Earth.
** ''Dark Horse'', suitors come to her in the hopes of wooing her with fabulous gifts. She responds by turning them into objects. I.E: A grill for her teeth, a cup full of wine to soothe her tongue after eating spicy Cheetos, an alligator purse, dice for a pimped out chariot. Only the last dude gets off luck since he gets partially turned into dog. Also that statue during "There's no going back" parts (shudders).\\\
The "There's no going back" voice on its own. To quote WebVideo/{{A Dose Of| Buckley}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PkJtoZskXo#t=6m04s Buckley]]:
--> '''Buckley''': If a girl was talking to me and all of a sudden, her voice changed into that, I'll be calling an exorcist to get it the fuck out of there.

* ToughActToFollow: Scoring 5 #1s in an album? It's unlikely Katy Perry will be able to redo that record.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Among the LGBT community she will forever be known as the girl who lied about kissing a girl. Though while accepting an award in 2017, she implied that she actually is bi and had to hide it from her fundamentalist parents, this is probably too little too late for her reputation.

* TheScrappy: Katy herself can be considered this for Music/{{Pop}} music in general, and is frequently used as an example when someone wants to say that pop has declined in recent years. Her hatedom has [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap begun to cool]] as TheNewTens went on, but comparisons towards her peers tend to be very negatively skewed still.
** The rapping interludes in her songs, particularly Kanye West's unfitting bit in E.T. Most people feel they're annoying and take away from the groove of the song.

* DudeNotFunny: She wasn't very happy when it was suspected that Music/TaylorSwift's "Bad Blood" was apparently about her. See this [[https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6244093/katy-perry-taylor-swift-bad-blood-tweet article]].



** Part Of Me has been played every three hours on the radio, no joke!

* {{Anvilicious}}: The video for "Chained to the Rhythm" is '''''not''''' subtle with its ignorant-masses symbols, featuring imagery such as the "American Dream Drop", a park ride that drops picturesque houses rather violently, human hamster wheels, a gas station setpiece with open flames in it, and bomb rides.
