Katy Perry's FIREWORK - A Music Video That's Changing Our World

I loved this.

Enjoy,




Oh, the gay kiss! The teen girl with the real body! And of course, the lyric:

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe


Yes! Every one of us needs to let our colors burst - and allow ourselves to be our unique, authentic selves!

And I was thrilled to see that the song:

...is dedicated to the "It Gets Better" campaign, which is about fighting against harassment of gay teens.


YAY!

And thanks to Katy and her team: The song was composed by Perry, Stargate, Sandy Vee and Ester Dean and the music video was directed by Dave Meyers!

Namaste,
Lee

Sure, it's great, but what about...in German?! Muahaha!

Okay, so there's no gay kiss in that one. But the message is transcending linguistic boundaries...or something like that.

Hi J.Ro and Deb - I know, it makes me happy, too!

HumanDuctTape - that German version was soooo karaoke! And I missed the gay kiss. But I'm still glad you shared it -

Namaste,
Lee

Katy Perry is not queer-friendly. She's jumping on the bandwagon, but this is the same person who sang "You're so gay and you don't even like boys" as an insult to her ex-boyfriend.

Pretty good... I still like Lady Gaga's Born This Way better, though.
