Okay, whoah. lol
Please don't believe everything you read in the news/tabloids/ect. I know what WE say is... well, "reading"... but we're fans and we know Katy enough to speak on what we know of her and what she's said and done. Katy, really, was not a heavy smoker in 2010.
Like sum1 said, it has always been one here and there. And hey, this year I think we've only seen her smoke those fake ones... I danno what they are called, I'm not a smoker, but I'm sure sum1 else can shed light on that one.
And correct... not shown smoking in her movie... she's not that type of person some people apparently want her to be seen as. Katy's actually smarter than what many give her credit for...
I am nearly 100% sure Katy has absolutely NO legal ties to Katy Hudson. I know it's HER voice and album, but you know how easy it is for legal things to get messy. She would have to go thru a lot of work to get the rights and blah blah blah. The record label that released it doesnt even exist anymore, hasn't for over 10 years, lol. Altho it's a unique part of her past, is it worth it to HER and HER CAREER NOW? No... it's really not.
Tell ya what! Is it illegal to create a CD-R with the songs from Katy Hudson (directly from my legit copy on my computer) and send it to you thru postal mail? As far as I know, so long as it's used for personal use and I don't make you pay... it's completely legal? I'd be willing to do that!
Or send you the files?
The MP3 download on Amazon/iTunes I think wasnt being done with proper authorization... I started questioning a few things and finally contacted Amazon with my concern. Soon after it was gone from both Amazon and iTunes...
