Agree. Attempted a rebirth of herself with the short blonde hair and lost her appeal. The industry is that fickle. Look at Jessie J when she shaved her head.

I actually liked the singles from Witness and enjoy the Bon Appetit video.

I actually kinda agree about her haircut. Part of her success was actually her beauty and when she cut that hair people seemed to lose interest in her.

As for the songs, to be honest, "Chained to the Rhythm" and "Bon Appetite" were really good songs. I honestly liked both of them more than any singles from her previous era.

I also agree. It sounds silly but a huge part of her appeal was her bright long hair. Cutting it off means she cut off a lot of fans, especially younger ones.

It all started with Unconditionally: people didn't want a serious song, and they demanded Dark Horse.
The following singles didn't do so well, even if they were childish enough (Birthday) or catchy and accompanied by a funny video (This Is What We Do).
The Olympic song was snubbed, then she tried a mixture of serious and rhythmic, CTTR, which did good but not so good.
Kids... grew up, so she tried to conquer gays with a sexy pastiche, BonAppétit, by choosing a homofobic featured act.
All her subsequent choices (those two silly video) were completely out of contest, kids were lost (forever?), gays who love camp were bored, and the general public completely disinterested.
And, yes, short hair never pays (Nelly Furtado, Jessie J), when it's not a trade mark (Sinéad).

LOL at the hair being the reason of a popstar flopping! :-? :-? Tell that to Britney! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Her constant attempt of releasing same-sounding songs that are pop meets urban (with featured rappers) are against her core market. Only the likes Beyoncé and Rihanna can get away with that, Katy is a pop star, she thought that she can do "Dark Horse" again and again. :-? :-?

The haircut
Not as catchy music as before (still lacked quality too)
Rise release (killed the hype)
Making fun of Britney’s mental health
Tacky album cover
Long wait between Prism & Witness

Too much time between Prism and Witness, cutting her hair and being literally unrecognizable for most of the era.

Rise was awesome, although it could've been interesting to see how it would've gone if releasing the album off the back of it say in late Oct 2016 with maybe CTTR as a follow up single into 2017.

Rise was #1 in Australia, although there was even controversy there by releasing same time as Britney, reminding everyone of the epic 'roar v applause' contest of 2013, and later when witness dropped, there was the Taylor swift Spotify release drama on the same day.

The way it did play out though one glaringly obvious drop the ball moment with the witness era itself IMO was the massive gap for releasing the swish swish video, by the time it came out it was pretty much a 'meh OK then' hype wasn't there from the 3 months beforehand then it was completely overshadowed by Taylor dropping LWYMMD pretty much the following weekend iirc. Then we heard nothing from Katy pretty much until the left field release of Hey Hey Hey just before christmas.

The haircut and the general kookiness that came with her new look it seems (her Ellen and carpool karaoke appearances had their fair share of cringe moments, then there was the whole speculation she was having an identity crisis with the whole therapist session from witness world wide) may have played a part in this era being a bit all over the shop so to speak as well.

She may do with a bitbof a breather to regroup for next album.

Her approach to this album did the opposite of what she wanted. She did that whole YouTube channel and cut her hair etc. to show the real her, the authentic her - but it's actually made her seems more fake and inauthentic. She should've stuck with the identity that people associated with her.

The fact she hasn’t had a great song sing Roar. Everything has gone down hill since then.

Yes, ever since CTTR she attempted to market this era as ''finally i am for real'' and then ''Bon Appetit'' came along

A sequel of mistakes ended destroying her...

It all kinda started after she tried messing up with Taylor Swift (A.K.A one of the most powerful artists in the world right now) then the Hillary Clinton campaign and the "Rise" single then the weird behavior and cutting her hair, then the "Bon Appetit" single featuring Homophobic Migos and the subpar music overall, add to that the tragic TV performances and Dr.Luke being out of the picture to give her decent tunes...

After just 3 hit albums she's now a struggling act in the charts, struggling to sell out tours with weak boxscores and turned into a TV reality judge.

I was shocked at how badly her tour did, since a lot of pop stars can always fall back on ticket sales..... her sales were so poor when she came here back in October that I remember checking StubHub and demand was so low that people were offering 2nd row seats two hours before showtime for $15.... usually second row or even tenth row is ridiculously expensive (400, 500, 600, 1000+) but so few people wanted to see Katy this time around that people were slashing their prices down to almost nothing to get rid of them.

I'm happy for her if she is truly being 'herself' now.

However I will always want the Candy Katy Perry.
