Lady Gaga's Not The Only Sea-lebrity Anymore...

So, if you're an avid reader of this blog, you've probably seen our posts about Lady Gaga's mermaid alter ego and her upcoming mermiad-themed music video. Well, it turns out there's another celebrity out there who has donned a set of fins.

Katy Perry, known for her songs "I Kissed A Girl" and "Teenage Dream," just to name a couple, tweeted a pic of herself dressed in her mermaid garb, and it seems as if her new music video might be mermaid-themed.

Apparently, there is now a fued raging between Gaga and Perry fans, accusing Perry of stealing the mermaid idea from Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga's creative partner Laurieann Gibson tweeted, "Proud of my artist #1 in the world @Ladygaga her vision& passion. even though they try to steal a tail theres only 1 Mermaid, Swim On!!!"

In my opinion, I say the more mermaids, the merrier, no matter whose idea it originally was. Mermaids are becoming extremely popular, so it's evident they're going to show up all over the place, just like vampires did when they were the latest craze. Even Lady Gaga wasn't the first to don a mermaid tail for a music video. Does anyone remember Sade's video for "No Ordinary Love?" Gaga and Perry are just the latest celebrities to dress as a mermaid, and I'll happily welcome and watch both music videos.

What are your opinions on the Gaga/Perry mermaid feud?


  1. From what I can see, Katy makes a much more alluring mermaid than Gaga... Sour grapes on creative's part?
    Who owns the rights to the mermaid legend???
    Maybe Hans Christian Andersen's estate should sue both of them for copyright infringement!!!

  2. I agree, I think Katy would make a better mermaid, she could easily pull the look off. Lady Gaga, however... well, you'd never forget she's in a costume.

  3. Katy perry did the mermaid look a while ago for a concert, she wore a lovely outfit coverd in shells,starfish,diamonds sitting in giant shell .In my opionion she looks a lot more like a mermaid in that picture than lady gaga did when she dressed up as one. xx
