Well, color me surprised!
In today’s WTF news story of the day, celebrity conspiracy site YourNewsWire recently alleged that perky songstress Katy Perry spoke at length “on French radio” about being a cannibal, saying it was all the rage in Hollywood to feed on dead bodies, and that they taste like pork:
“So many people in Hollywood tell you that human meat is the best meat in the world,” but it’s “gotten a bad rap” due to “squeamish Christians and their hypocritical virtues and morals.”
After supposedly touting the health benefits of human flesh, Perry is further quoted as revealing, “There is a group of old Hollywood guys who have an annual dinner party where the main dish is human… Each year a new host is selected for the following year by drawing straws.” The outlet claims she added, “It is the new host’s responsibility to provide the main course, and it has to be human. If he can’t find a suitable person to serve as the meal… the host will be eaten instead!” After suggesting that Perry is open to the idea of murdering and eating someone, the outlet then notes she typically just feeds on dead bodies. “It tastes like pork,” the singer allegedly said.
GossipCop did a fact-check on the story and concluded:
Naturally, this nonexistent interview can’t be find anywhere on the Internet. Still, Gossip Cop notified a source close to the singer of this nonsense, and we’re exclusively assured all the quotes attributed to her were fabricated. It’s possible this phony article was concocted because Perry’s music video for “Bon Appetit” features her getting cooked and served like a piece of meat. At one point in the footage, she prepares to eat a cherry pie stuffed with body parts (see above). The singer has explained that the imagery is a metaphor for her sexual liberation, despite YourNewsWire seemingly interpreting it as a celebration of cannibalism. Regardless, the site’s story is simply ludicrous.
Kinda wishing there WAS a big cannibal dinner party scene in Hollywood, and folks like Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and the rest could just devour themselves and we could be done with it.
