Katy Perry optužena za seksualno zlostavljanje glumca u vlastitom spotu

Na devetu godišnjicu izlaska spota Teenage Dream, model Josh Kloss koji u spotu igra snovitog partnera Katy Perry, objavio je bombastičnu izjavu na svome Instagram profilu, u kojoj je poželio “Sretan rođendan poslu koji mi je bio zbunjujući, napadan i ponižavajući više nego ijedan drugi u karijeri!”

 

Kloss je posvjedočio da je Perry prema njemu nasamo bila topla i ugodna, no pred drugima bi postala “hladna poput leda” i ponižavala ga pred čitavom ekipom govoreći, primjerice, da je “odvratno” ljubiti se s njime. No Kloss se nije osjećao slobodnim reagirati jer mu je angažman bio važan, kao i honorar, koji je iznosio svega 650$. Maneken je priznao da mu se Perry i dalje sviđala, vidjeli su se nekoliko puta nakon njezina raskida s Russelom Brandom te ju je jednom prilikom htio upoznati s prijateljem ili prijateljicom, koja je bila ogroman fan, no Perry je iskoristila priliku da mu na tulumu pred hrpom ljudi spusti hlače i gaće. “Možete li zamisliti koliko sam se jadno i posramljeno osjećao?” piše Josh.

 

 

Kasnije su članovi Perryna PR tima kontrolirali i usmjeravali svu njegovu komunikaciju s medijima, no sada se Kloss odlučio prvi put progovoriti o svom groznom iskustvu: “Neću više niti sekunde pomagati njezinom bullshit imageu”. Ovo nije prvi put da je Katy prozvana za neprimjereno seksualizirano ponašanje – prošle je godine bila na udaru jer je uvalila poljubac protiv volje mladom natjecatelju na emisiji American Idol (koji se dotad nikada nije poljubio te mu je bilo vrlo neugodno kasnije), a godinu prije toga zgrabila je stražnjicu Shawna Mendesa na iHeartRadio Music Awards.

 

 

Uza sve osnažujuće moderne himne zahvaljujući kojima je zaradila mnoštvo obožavatelja, ponašanje Katy Perry posve je deplasirano, a u post-#metoo eri, ostavlja osobito gorak okus u ustima. “Naša kultura silno želi pokazati kako su muškarci u pozicijama moći perverzni, ali žene u moći jednako su odvratne,” piše Kloss. Ne valja zaboraviti da muškarci također doživljavaju seksualno zlostavljanje i trpe neprimjereno ponašanje te je dio feminističke borbe za ravnopravnost da svi budemo jednako zaštićeni od eksploatacije. Iskorištavati svoju poziciju kako bi tretirala ljude bez poštovanja apsolutno je neoprostivo, a činjenica da ponašanje ne nailazi na opću osudu zato što je riječ o lijepoj ženi, a ne srednjovječnom ljigavcu, ne služi baš nikome na čast. Katy, saberi se.

You know. After I met Katy, we sang a worship song, “open the eyes of my heart” She was cool and kind. When other people were around she was cold as ice even called the act of kissing me “gross” to the entire set while filming. Now I was pretty embarrassed but kept giving my all, as my ex was busy cheating on me and my daughter was just a toddler, I knew I had to endure for her sake. After the first day of shooting, Katy invited me to a strip club in Santa Barbara. I declined and told her “I have to go back to hotel and rest, because this job is all I have right now” So I saw Katy a couple times after her break up with Russel. This one time I brought a friend who was dying to meet her. It was Johny Wujek’s birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw her, we hugged and she was still my crush. But as I turned to introduce my friend, she pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my penis. Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed i felt? I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse. But females with power are just as disgusting. So for all her good she is an amazing leader, hers songs are mainly great empowering anthems. And that is it. I continued to watch her use clips of her music videos for her world tour and then her dvd, only highlighting one of her male co-stars, and it was me. I made around 650 in total off of teenage dream. I was lorded over by her reps, about not discussing a single thing about anything regarding Katy publicly. And a couple interviews they edited and answered for me. So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done. Yay #teenagedream I was actually gonna play the song and sing it on ukele for the anniversary, but then as I was tuning I thought, fuck this, I’m not helping her bs image another second.
