Katy Perry’s AMA Performance Sparks Controversy

(PCM) It was a big night for music fans during ABC’s broadcast of the American Music Awards last night, however not everyone was pleased with all of the evenings performance, especially Katy Perry’s.

Perry performed her new single “Unconditionally” and was dressed in a complete Japanese geisha costume with a microphone adorned with cherry blossoms and a Japanese inspired-set as well. I think Perry looked and sounded fantastic, however many have taken to Twitter and other social media channels calling the performance racist and in poor taste.

Have we become a society that has such thin skin that we are now creating racist scenarios out of nothing? The song features Japanese inspired instrumentation, which I totally feel Perry was trying to showcase with the gorgeous performance. I do not think that she in any way meant to insult or degrade the Japanese culture.

Also, since when did public opinion and internet sensationalism become the source for solid, stone-cold facts news reporting. Somehow taking and showcasing a comment off a teen girls Twitter account makes this whole issue legitimate?  I don’t think so!

Grow-up people and respect the performance for what it was….a performance, a very well-executed one at that! Okay..hopping off my soapbox now!

See the full performance below and let us know what you think! Racist or no?
