Katy Perry and I have been at odds before and this is more of the same. Hot N Cold is catchy, I'll give her that. It has wormed it's way into my mind over the past week and replays more than I would like (I would like zero). It's not that it is a terrible song - they video is pretty terrible I thought (gee, a guy being hesitant to marry you after you were all about kissing girls a year ago? That's unpossible.) My problem with the song is that the lyrics are so generic.
Cause you're hot then you're coldYou're yes then you're no
You're in and you're outYou're up and you're down
Seriously? That makes Alanis Morissette's Ironic look like Shakespeare (PS - I love Alanis. For excellent contrasting points see Eight Easy Steps. Ironic was just a little generic and cheesy.). Every time I hear Katy Perry's Hot N Cold I want to pat her on the head like a special child and go "Did you come up with all those contrasts all by yourself? You're such a smart child!"You're wrong when it's rightIt's black and it's whiteWe fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
