Normally we would say that Katy Perry could do no wrong.  She’s hot, seems pretty smart and can sing, but one thing she can’t do is rap. That is PAINFULLY obvious from the forthcoming video.

Katy decided (or someone convinced her) it would be a good idea to do a cover of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘N***as In Paris’.  This performance is awkward, forced and on the level of a YouTube fan vid.

Oh Katy, why would you do that?  Now we won’t be able to look at you again without thinking about this awful cover.  And the hat? Was that an homage to Jay-Z or were you impersonating Mark Teixeira on karaoke night in a Manhattan bar?

Please Katy, please, we are begging you, leave the rapping to the rappers.  How about more videos of you in a whip cream bra? Stick with what you know.
