Katy Perry: feminist or not?

March 18 10:23 2014

Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé proudly call themselves feminist, and Katy Perry joins the group by calling herself one in an interview with Australian morning show, Today.

According to E! News, the “Roar” singer was asked by TV host Karl Stefanovic.

“I used to not really understand what that word meant, and now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men,” Perry said, adding, “I am a strong woman. Hear me roar!”

Perry was criticized back in 2012 for not being a feminist, according to Entertainment Wise.

“I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women,” the singer said as she accepted the Woman of the Year awards at Billboard’s Women in Music.

While the definition of the f-word has not yet been concretely defined, Seventeen Magazine, wrote an article in order to shed some light on the word that is seen as negative.

“Some people think being a feminist means you don’t shave your armpits and that you want to bring down guys,” said Julie, 21, creator of a new-wave feminist blog, thefbomb.org. “But that’s not it at all. It’s about girls knowing their potential and not letting anything hold them back.”
