Katy Perry: What is your damage?

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!

What is your damage, Katy Perry? You’re making me feel like a hard old bitch.

Until yesterday my impression of you had been somewhat vague, a smattering of visuals and a strong if nonsensical set of aural hooks. If I heard your name, I’d think of rainbow sherbet , hot dogs that are really people, Snoop Dogg rolling a pair of sugarcube dice, and gummy bears come to life. Basically a child’s, or stoner’s, paradise. (If you did a “Downtempo Snaxxx Remix” of each hit single, by the way, you could easily corner another segment of the population.) I’m pretty sure I could pick your voice out of a police lineup, for crimes against candy. And without even trying, I somehow know all of your singles. Are there drugs in those? I hear them once and by the second go-round I’m BELTING them like some wall-licking beast.

'Titanic Super 3-D' trailer: Watch out for exploding passengers!

Titanic is a fantastic technical achievement, a moving love story, and a surprisingly durable cultural force — even though a ton of people claim to hate it. That being said, I think we can all agree that James Cameron’s masterpiece could stand to be just a little more awesome.

For example: What if instead of wading through chest-deep, ice-cold water, Jack and Rose had to flee from Imperial Stormtroopers? And wouldn’t a giant Kraken be a better villain than an immobile iceberg? (Icebergs don’t even have tentacles!) Oh, and what about lens flares and explosions? Like, a ton of lens flares and explosions?

Enter “Titanic Super 3-D,” a fake trailer for yet another vision of 1998’s Best Picture winner — only this time, the film’s been enhanced by box-office pros George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, and Michael Bay. Though the hypothetical experience borrows a bit from the very real, very ridiculous Titanic 4DX, the video’s best moments come when it pokes fun at those three filmmakers. (All the Bay portion is missing is a puffy-lipped lingerie model.) Check out the trailer below, then confess: You’d totally see this movie, wouldn’t you? READ FULL STORY
