Nice work, Kathy Beth

It’s Katy Perry’s birthday, and, well, I don’t have any shots of her in her birthday suit or anything like that, but I did stumble across this shot from the ’08 MTV Europe Music Awards:

This struck me as a nicely unforced pose, and for once she’s not overdoing the pink, which isn’t even a color anyway. Further, as with the last Katy Perry picture I posted, you don’t see her alleged doppelgänger looking back at you. But after I was finishing off the FTP, I took one last look, and holy cereal bowl, she looks kind of like Rebecca Black — who, incidentally, appeared in Katy’s music video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” about two and a half years after this picture was taken. Make of that what you will. (“Kathy Beth Terry” was Katy’s übernerd alter-ego, featured in said video.)

    “Pink isn’t a color”

    Egad, is this the “lady-bloggers shouldn’t blog about cupcakes and cats” bit all over again? (And yeah, I know: don’t call ‘em “lady-bloggers.”)

    (OTOH: I do weary of the “Breast Cancer Awareness IN YOUR FACE” stuff. Partly because pancreatic cancer and ovarian cancer are both more deadly, less detectable, and I suspect fewer people are really aware of them)

    I have to figure that pancreatic cancer will climb a rung or two on the Awareness Ladder just from the untimely demise of Steve Jobs, who thought he had it licked.

    As for ovarian cancer, well, there’s family history to remind me.

    I was surprised by the video purporting to explain why pink is not a color. Given all the other crap floating around on the net I should not have been.

    Of course pink is a color and we can see it quite well. Why are people so ridiculous?

    PS: all that video explains is why we see certain light wavelengths as “pink.” It has nothing to do with pink not existing, or not being a color. That’s just bad interpretation of science by the Huffingtonpost woman.

    There is no shortage of people, at HuffPo or any of a thousand other places, who seem to believe that science matters only when it serves, or can be twisted to serve, some particular social agenda.
