Katy Perry transforms herself into a U.S. Marine in her latest power-pop single, "Part of Me," which addresses female empowerment and pays particular tribute to service women.
However, at least one media type doesn't support Perry's Marines shout-out.
Prominent feminist Naomi Wolf, author of "The Beauty Myth" and one of many who were arrested amid the Occupy Wall Street protests last year, is urging Americans to boycott the singer, labeling her video "a total piece of propaganda for the Marines."

Surprisingly not bad. No boycott from me.
Instead of flailing about for attention, how about just minding your own business.
No one cares about your vapid thoughts.
So, do we get to boycott Woody Gutherie, Joan Baez, Peter Paul & Mary, Lena Horne, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, et al for being “a total piece of propaganda for the Communists”?
I was hoping to see pix of Katy Perry on this thread.
Somebody needs to remedy that.
I liked it!
Makes me proud to be an American.
Shove it, Naomi.
And here I thought the liberals just loved the military nowadays, since the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. That policy was the big objection liberals had to the military.
So now it turns out they dislike the military anyway. Okay...............
Hard to trust when she was seen with X at OWS sites. It sure seems like the libs are trying hard to co-opt the military. I mean, what’s with Michelle’s “support military families” agenda? Bothers me. They’re so disingenuous.
pretty cool ping....
Be still may patriotic heart.
Gorgeous girly girl with a horrid taste in men. She needs a Marine (or a SEAL?) as a husband.
Perry has talent, Wolfe not so much.
Just a so-so voice, but expecting her to also sing like Emmylou Harris would be asking too much.
Next week, Naomi protests Cher. The week after, The Village People.
Oooorah! What’s not to like?
LOL, that’s the first thing I thought of - Algore in brown.
As a female veteran, I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!!!
Hmmm... Different day same ****, Envy of a female type, Liberals are sooo predictable.
I wouldn’t have known about it, but had to see what was bugging Niomi Wolf. Boycott not working so well, as I joined 21,510,000+ viewers.
You forgot the Adulterer and Junkie Bruce Springsteen
After watching the video, it’s quite obvious that Ms. Perry had to have quite a bit of co-operation with the Marines to make it.
I don’t like what passes for ‘music’ these days, but I totally enjoyed the song and video. Propaganda for the Marines? It could be...and so what!
Was Cher’s “Turn Back Time” video propaganda for the Navy?
As soon as the silk stocking crowd in Hollywood, rescues American hostages from the clutch of Barbary pirates, defeats the Kaiser's best at Belleau Wood, bloody the Emperor's nose at Wake Island, raises the Stars and Stripes on Iwo Jima, endures the meat grinder of Okinawa, survives winter at the Chosin Reservoir, kicks the NVA's asses at Hue and Khe Sanh and drives a stake through the heart of al queda in Ramadi and Fallujah, then we should politely listen to them whine about the United States Marine Corps. Until then...
Navy propaganda? I dunno. Was this Navy propaganda as well?
That’s Zooey Deschanel in the middle.
OK I watched the video and I dont see what the big deal is. Its a nice video. Glad I bought one of her CD’s for Christmas. Perhaps deep down inspite of some of her antics she has some good conservative or traditional american values in her heart.
