Sometimes the antidote to a punched in the gut kind of bad feeling is a cotton candy self-esteem video. I have a secret pop culture stash of fluffy artists that I sometimes need to bop to on occasion. I don’t even know how this song came onto my radar, but it has stuck there with “Born this Way” by Lady Gaga as fist pumping “Believe in Yourself”ers. Yes, Katy Perry, sometimes I do feel like a plastic bag. I say this without irony or cynicism.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw&ob=av2e%5D
I believe in the power of popular dance anthems. I believe in mirrors and hair brush microphones.
I believe my heart is mine and that you can’t tell me how to follow it (not you, Katy Perry, but the general, ubiquitous you, that giant other that seems everywhere and anywhere it wants to be).
Cause baby, I’m a Firework!
