Dear Ms Perry/ Mrs Brand, or whatever name you go by,
I recently had the misfortune of seeing your single Last Friday Night on MTV. Firstly- and this point is aimed at many others in your line of work, too – give up with the 1980s obsession. Crimped hair, gaudy colours, big earrings – just let it go. The 1980s were NOT fun. They were a time of greedy fat-cats, YUPPIES, Maggie Thatcher, and giant, frenzied Rottweilers, let loose in parks to maul toddlers. People looked like idiots, and, for the most part, acted like them too. No-one looked good in the 1980s; not even Paul Newman, and that bloke always looked good. So, dear musicians, fashion designers, and any other poor, misguided morons: leave this repugnant, putrid decade in the past where it belongs. End of point one.
Secondly, Ms Perry/ Mrs Brand: why do you feel it is acceptable to ridicule ‘Geeks’ (if you must categorise intelligent, hard-working teenagers as such)? Your portrayal of one such girl in Last Friday Night, pulled off in your usual subtle, understated way, is nothing less than appallingly offensive, and, although I’m sure it was great fun for you to play at being a social outcast, did you, under the cliched big glasses and braces, stop to consider what life is actually like for those less physically blessed than yourself (I speak here with the accepted verdict regarding your appearance)? When I was at school, those unfortunate enough to wear ‘headgear’ braces, were walking targets for small-minded bullies, and, more often than not, they didn’t have the opportunity to morph into a beautiful swan overnight, like your ‘character’ in the video. And your suggestion that consuming large quantities of alcohol, vomiting into a shoe, passing out on a bed, and waking up next to a naked man is conducive to popularity is an appalling message to send out to your army of youthful fans.
To cap it all off, the song is crap and you smell.

No….Katy Perry is pretty horible all on her own, nobody is dressing her up to be. And for the love of all that is holy learn a bit of grammar. Great letter, by the way.
i was meant to say : nerds CAN get turned into something beautiful if they are unfortunately not like katy or up to what they might think is beautiful, and if some nerds arent beautiful, if they ask someone or if they do it them selves, it might be possible for a misfortunate nerd to become a beautiful swan, as you say in your post.
i really like her, and she never emant all nerds are like that, she was just saying that some can be. and she didnt mean throwing up in a show is good or passing out next to a stranger is good, bc it defo isnt, but im just saying, she never meant to single any body out, she was just pretending to be a type of nerd. nerds CAN be popular and nerdy too, because i am a nerd and i have alot of friends, her video was just trying to say, nerds CAN get turned into something beautiful if they want, and nerds can be beautiful, she NEVER EVER meant to single a nerd out and ridicule them, you are just trying to make the worst out of something that was never meant to hurt. so please, shut the fuck up, mofo. also, i am not a katy perry only crazed fan, just saying she is really good and i am a fan, but i dont have her posters everywhere, im just saying i would like it if you left her alone because she never emant to hurt anybody hwith her not meant to be hurtful song that was jsut portraying what a friday night could do if you dont be careful, so leave her alone she didnt do anything, you are just trying to amke it seem like she has.
This is beautiful… I might just cry.
You win the internet.
I think I love you.
