I'd very much appreciate it not to be addressed with 'dude' by anybody on the forum. While it may be a generally accepted slang term in at least parts of the USA in the English speaking community I live in it's actually a slightly derogative term for somebody whose mental abilities are much doubted. I assume that you haven't been aware of that fact until this point.
Come forward to do what? Convince silly people who want to bash her that they shouldn't bash her? She's a global megastar.
I was there too and I'm not being biased but her vocals were incredible, if you're a KatyCat and believe what you heard on tv, seriously don't, itv managed to make her sound so bad but in the arena she didn't slip up once and it was amazing throughout, the sound quality of the speakers in the arena is pretty shocking so I think that had something to do with it
Maybe Katy needs to come forward about this.
The fault is with the TV channels, nor with her. Neither does she have to work on parts of her performance or parts of her voice in those ways people on twitter or forums like this would like to suggest. She's a super professional performer who lives and works extra hard in a world we don't even know. She knows what she's doing and doesn't need advice from anybody not even performing.
dude, you really gotta chill out, it feels like we're in Law and Order and everything we say may and will be held against us...
We're merely suggesting things that will never be close to having any impact on anything of what Katy does. That's just called conversation. Of course she knows what she's doing, we all know that and are all here for the same reason. Calm. Down. If you don't like the way people "suggest" things on here, then please, don't read.
And for the record, as good as someone (anyone) is, there is ALWAYS room for improvement and some things to work on. In ANY field / specialty / profession.
Sorry if I came across as rude in my opinion on comments concerning Katy's work and progress; idk, it might be the way in which things are sometimes expressed when they give me the impression as if people thought they had the insight and qualification to pick out aspects of Katy's performance and then act as if they could possibly know what to do about any seeming flaws. They may not mean it in the way it comes across.
My general opinion is though, it would really take somebody of the profession to suggest what somebody in the same profession should be working on from a technical point if view.
sorry about the "dude" thing, it really wasn't meant as agressive. Just an interjection.
And as for the last part, that's why i don't think anyone on here is going to tell her directly this sort of things. It's not real advice, pretty much just questions and frustrations over sometimes bad perceived performances. No one has ever come out on here as a professional in the music business as far as i know (breen there since the 1st day, but might have missed something). Just a bunch of (mostly young) people expressing their views about someone they appreciate for so many different and personal reasons. Keep that in mind when reading replies.
Oh, thank you, I will do so, and sorry, it isn't such a big deal anyway, I know it isn't meant that way.
But, last night I just quickly went through Wednesday's Mirror (UK tabloid) while waiting for something in a shop and came across a short Katy Perry paragraph which at the end mentioned her 'terrible off key performance' on that show, and I really thought about it seriously asking myself - where do those who write those contributions get them from? Then, this morning, I clicked on the new link of the video here, plugged it into the amp system in the room and listened to the whole thing again and was even more puzzled - why would they all come to that conclusion. I am NOT in the audience, I AM only hearing it through a YouTube link, but it makes me ask, do those who write the stuff hear any of it at all, or are the articles just rehashed write ups which make their round through the media in form of available bits on the net? In other words, how many of tabloid writers, including even websites dealing with pop music etc, have actually listened to anything at all in any way?? Because, after even getting the bird cage performance only from YouTube I couldn't possibly call it terrible and off key, even if I didn't particularly care about Katy at all!
