But I've decided to launch a new "series" of posts here on Ip & Audrey. For a while I was writing about my favorite things each season (and I seem to have abandoned that one! Whoopsies). Now I'm going to try to stick with a weekly "deep" thought. The topic is (drumroll, please)....
Cute or Creepy?
Each week, we're going to take a look at something in fashion or pop culture and decide whether we think it's cute, or just plain creepy. And I will leave it up to you, dear reader, to vote.
Today we're looking at Katy Perry's new album. Her sophomore disc, Teenage Dream, came out yesterday, and the case itself is cotton candy-scented. Katy also opted to appear naked on the cover, lounging on pink cotton candy clouds (naturally). Picking this CD up to give it an innocuous sniff? Um, awkward.
(This is not the actual cover art. Perhaps it should be?)
So! Is the scented cotton candy concept cute? Or does the naked cover propel it over to the creepy category?
Teenage Dream: Is it Cute or is it Creepy?
Cute! Katy may be nude, but it's done tastefully; she looks like a retro pinup. And who doesn't like pink cotton candy?
Creepy! The scented CD is fun and childlike, but pairing it with a nude pic? Not so innocent!
