To Be Fair, This is Probably the Most Inauguration Appropriate Outfit Katy Perry Owns

By Genevieve Burgess | Pajiba Love | January 22, 2013 | Comments ()


Hello, darlings! It is far earlier in the day than I'm used to speaking with you, so be patient, be kind, and most important of all can we turn the lights down a touch? Thanks. Onto the links.

I doubt anyone who frequents this site honestly believes that the moon landings were faked. However, I am certain that many of you will be interested in this video that demonstrates that they could not have been faked by giving a thorough run-down of the technology available at the time and why it couldn't have been used to fake the moon landing footage over at Gizmodo. (Gizmodo)

Speaking of conspiracy theories, professional rumor investigators Snopes have gone and covered the ones in that awful video about the Sandy Hook shootings. Bad news: Anyone who shares that video will read this and immediately tell you that Snopes is a tool of the government to cover up their disinformation campaign. (Snopes)

Let's have a palette cleanser before we move on, shall we?

Oh, and one more. Just for fun. (Pusheen)

Do you know how much male eye candy has come to our attention thanks to the tireless efforts of HBO casting directors? Well, me neither, but here's a partial list. Though really, I have to disagree on Jacob Pitts, he was introduced to us in the amazing EuroTrip. (Warming Glow)

Who's the real victim in this whole Lance Armstrong rigmorale? Basically all of us who had to be aware of it at all, ever. But, you know, Matthew McConaughey had his mellow harshed and that's sad for him. (Celebitchy)

This is one of my favorite things on the Internet. Many of you have probably already seen it. I don't care. (Animals Talking in All Caps)

Do you have a pathological need to keep up with all things pop culture even though you know most of it's crap? Then we have that in common. If you've been looking for a way to learn enough about the 50 Shades trilogy to make intelligent arguments about it without actually reading it, romance writer Jenny Trout has you covered. (Jen Reads 50 Shades)

I should say something about the inauguration, right? Other than about Katy Perry dressing like a dipshit and Bill Clinton checking out that sweet Clarkson action? (The Superficial)

Oh! Here's something cool: Inauguration artists over the years. Complete with Spotify playlist! (Mashable)

I still miss Crystal Pepsi. Here's some other 90s snack foods to mourn. (Not the It Girls)

Here is why you'll probably never see another episode of "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23" again. (Uproxx)

Something a bit more in my wheelhouse to wrap up: a new teaser video for "Game of Thrones" season three. There's no true spoilers, but there's a few new characters who show up for the first time, and if you really don't want to know ANYTHING going into the third season then you probably shouldn't watch. The rest of you, dig in:

Who Looks Classier In Next to Nothing? Monica Belluci, Jessica Chastain, or Kate Upton? | Breathe In Review: Finding Someone To Play For

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Buck Forty

    What's wrong with Katy's outfit? Seriously.
    I thought Obama was elected to office -- when did the Puritans take over?

  • zeke_the_pig

    To me the relevant question about the moon landings is not whether they were faked or not, it's whether they could have been faked, and if they could have been faked, then would the government have done it. I can't watch the video at the moment, but I'm going to just assume it's accurate. So then the technology didn't exist. But let's say that it did. Then what would be so far-fetched about a government faking something like that? Why would that be implausible?
    Clearly I'm posting too late to actually get a reply, so I'll just pretend this was a rhetorical question. Which it kinda was. But now it's an actual rhetorical question, as opposed to an Internet Rhetorical Question where you still expect an answer.

  • Mrs. Julien

    That made me think of the scene in Grifters where JT Walsh opens the door to show the mark all of the computers and employees working away in an empty room.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    Katy Perry does a perfect Barbie Hand.

  • OldSchool60

    I didn't know that American Maid was performing at the Inauguration.

  • JH

    Rick Gomez is, and forever shall remain, Pitstain.

  • e jerry powell

    50 Shades? Who needs it?

    Don't people actually read de Sade anymore?

  • fribbley

    James VDB in Don't Trust the B is a national treasure and I will forever hate ABC for depriving us of him.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    Forget about the moon landing being faked. I don't believe in the moon. YOU KNOW IT'S JUST A PAINTED QUARTER HANGING UP THERE, DON'T YOU?

    Fucking sheep. All of you. BAAAAAAAAA!

  • Protoguy


  • Protoguy

    Moon landing deniers, pfft.

    And the hubbub about Katy Perry, I just don't get. That outfit might have been risque or whatever when Dolly Parton's mom wore it. The bitch has tits. Get over it.

  • Happy Endings has dropped off so much I wouldn't care if they can it. Loosing Don't Trust the Bitch would hurt. It's fun and funny. And Dreama Walker and Krysten Ritter are incredible.

    I'm not totally sure why Eurotrip works. Kristin Kreuk helps, being that she has the most perfect face ever. And Jacob Pitts is really good. I guess that's enough.

  • dizzylucy

    Agree - if I had to sacrifice one, it would probably be Happy Endings.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Though his HBO introduction was post- Band of Brothers and The Pacific, I am still eternally grateful for Richard Madden.

    Also I had no idea Jamie Bamber was in Band of Brothers. I'll be in my bunk.

  • Kballs

    Only a dirty liberal would wear that in front of kids. She's very dirty. So, so dirty. Must stop looking at that filthy picture. Dirty girl . . .

  • theotherone

    Katy's not a Republican?

  • e jerry powell

    Can she even spell Republican?

  • BlackRabbit

    Why do you assume she can't?

  • I am dying to see Chris Traeger's reaction to the Lance Armstrong news.

  • Tinkerville

    Live strong.

  • dizzylucy

    He's already kind of broken. This might push him over the edge. Next we'll see him eating a huge pile of fast food and watching a reality show. Probably about swamps, or the Amish.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Oh my god... my tolerance for the Chris-heavy episodes has really been wearing thin this season, but I will be so delighted if this factors into (yet another) meltdown.

  • logan

    I really liked Katy's ballot dress better than her Uncle Sam outfit but hey it's nice to see the youngsters get involved int he political process and by youngsters I mean her boobs.

  • Thank you for addressing the conspiracy theories in that damn video. I work/live in a very, very conservative town, and that video has been going around the office like a bad case of the flu. I have heard actual, serious conversations that include things like "This is one of the signs of the Apocalypse", "America is headed for a second civil war", "This is the first step towards a police state. They will be stopping people at highway exits now and arresting them on the spot". I am sick and tired of the ignorance. I need to move.

  • Carlito

    I'd tell you that moving to the moon would be the only place safe from the loonies, but we've never made it there.

  • Kballs

    Moving won't help. Ignorance is everywhere.

  • TK

    Moving will totally help. I've never once heard anything like that from people around me, and I live in a pretty conservative town (relatively speaking - it is Massachusetts, after all).

  • Kballs

    Clueless idiots are everywhere. You might get lucky and land in a place and job where they aren't in your immediate sphere of activity. But you'll know they're out there, waiting to strike up a conversation about apocalyptic tomfoolery at any moment . . .

  • TK

    True. Best you can do is try to minimize how much you come into contact with them. Some places make that harder than others.

  • Exactly. I am aware that there are crazies everywhere, but the concentration here is high.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I know. I'm reading Lyssie89's post thinking "wtf?!" Lyssie - come to NYC. You'll hear crazies, but everyone around will treat them like crazies, not like people in the know.

  • Nadine

    How the hell have they not seen Eurotrip? For SHAME!

  • Kballs

    Eurotrip is the tits.

    "Dear God. We're in Eastern Europe."

  • ElvisCostelegram

    Eurotrip came out three years after Band of Brothers. But it should be selected for preservation by the United States National Film Registry for being "cultrually, historically, or aesthetically significant."

  • Genevieve Burgess

    See, that's my fault, I didn't realize that "Band of Brothers" was made in 2001 because I was 15 then and not up on my HBO dramas. Mea culpa.

  • Deidra

    Given that you were 15 in 2001, that means you were six years old when Crystal Pepsi came out. Does "still miss" mean "missed it the first time"?

  • Robert

    I'm about the same age as Genevieve. I have strong memories of Crystal Pepsi's ad campaign and also had the opportunity to try it out.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    No, thanks to some permissive babysitters and relatives I totally drank Crystal Pepsi when I was six. I remember it very clearly. I may have outgrown my taste for it in the years since but I guess I'll never know.

  • Nadine

    I am being THIS person, just by the way, but Jacob Pitts appeared as Hoosier in The Pacific. He was never in Band of Brothers.

    The Pacific came out after Eurotrip.

  • Robert

    Get your conspiracy theories straight.

    "Anyone who shares that video will read this and immediately tell you that Snopes is a tool of the government to cover up their disinformation campaign."

    Snopes is a tool of evil communist George Soros, who is working on bringing down the US through a false news campaign so the One World Order can finally be formed, bringing on End Times and the rise of our Reptilian overlords. This is separate from the government's own nefarious plan to do the same thing, except on leap years where the democrats control all three branches of government.
