“While in between shows on her European tour, Katy Perry paid a visit to concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. The ‘Dark Horse’ singer, 30, stopped by the World War II landmark site Wednesday, which she acknowledged in an Instagram photo of the prisoner barracks.”
People then goes on to quote Ms. Perry.
“My heart was heavy today. For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity, where the Nazi murdered about one and a half million men, women and children mainly Jews from various countries of Europe. The one that does not remember history is bound to live through it again.”
Ms. Perry was able to communicate her experience far better than Justin Bieber did when he visited the Anne Frank House. In 2013, CNN reported on Bieber‘s cringeworthy statements.
“If Anne Frank had not died a teenager in a Nazi concentration camp in 1945, Justin Bieber hopes she would have been his devoted fan. That’s what Bieber, 19, wrote in the guestbook at the Anne Frank House when he visited there Friday, according to the Amsterdam site.”
Justin Bieber received a lot of backlash for what he wrote on the guestbook. Many suspicious people believe that when celebrities involve the Holocaust for their PR repertoire, it becomes tasteless. So far, Katy Perry has received praise for her thoughtful statements about her visit.
It has been a great year for Katy Perry so far. Katy gave a great performance at the Grammys and even better performance at the Super Bowl. The New York Times describes how Katy Perry blew away the Super Bowl.
“During her 12 or so minutes on the University of Phoenix Stadium field on Sunday, she held her own, navigating a handful of her smashes and three wardrobe changes in a performance that resisted bad mood, spanning all of Ms. Perry’s modes.”
Some sources couldn’t help create a fake story pitting Katy Perry against Taylor Swift at an Oscars party. Gossip Cop recently spread the truth about the false Oscars story.
“Oscar parties organizers were NEVER concerned about a Katy Perry and Taylor Swift run-in, despite an entirely made-up story. Gossip Cop can bust this wholly fabricated claim, which was never based on any actual reporting, but rather was manufactured from the start.”
When a female becomes a megastar, the media has to pit her against another megastar. This surely won’t bother Katy Perry; she is a strong and positive person.
