Katy Perry is alright. Her voice has a slightly unique quality in her best singles when she stresses it and it breaks a little and has that raspy streak in it. Like that server who's been working at your fav restaurant bar way too long and has smoked too many cigarettes and done wayyy too much coke.

Dr. Luke could have given California Girls to any of the current crop of starlets with a similar hit, I think.

Really? Gabrielle Giffords? The Arizona Representative who was SHOT IN THE BRAIN by some nutjob a month ago, and is just learning how to talk again?

And I thought it was "too soon".

We know who Gabrielle Giffords is...

The way you wrote that just doesn't make any sense.

I'd say something about irony or "the tables have turned" here, but I'm under the impression that I'm more amused by our interactions on the site tonight than you are.

But I got laz's joke.

Most singers who have that, I like their voices. Hers ... I don't know. I guess I don't think she has that good of a voice, so the rasp doesn't enhance it.

Eh, that doesn't make sense. I don't think she has a very good voice. That oughta do it.

To say something nice about her (that isn't the thing about her cat being named Kitty Purry, which is still awesome), I do quite like the bar or two before the chorus of Firework.

Faint praise, but I was humming that shit all week. Just those few bars.

Whoops.

I'm not a Lady Antebellum song, either.

I don't think Headache and LN7 thought that reporter looked very much like Giffords, which probably threw them off.

Are you talking about Russell Brand? He's not a bad-looking guy at all.
