Un modello, che ha partecipato nel 2010 al video musicale “Teenage Dream” , ha accusato la popstar americana Katy Perry di avergli abbassato i pantaloni e di aver mostrato i le sue parti intime agli invitati di una festa di compleanno di un amico comune. Il trentottenne modello Josh Kloss ha reso pubbliche, in un post condiviso su Instagram, le accuse di molestie nei confronti della cantante domenica scorsa in occasione dell’anniversario del lavoro nel video musicale. Si dice che l’incidente si sia verificato qualche tempo dopo la separazione di Perry con l’ex marito Russell Brand nel 2012. “Lo dico solo ora perché la nostra cultura è incentrata sul dimostrare che gli uomini di potere sono perversi. Ma le femmine con potere sono altrettanto disgustose” – ha scritto Kloss su Instagram che poi ha anche spiegato i motivi della ritardata denuncia nei confronti di Katy Perry. “Inizialmente era traumatizzato. In seguito ho voluto aspettare per evitar che il suo intervento fosse confuso come un’iniziativa per cercare guadagni finanziari, ma sentivo che avevo bisogno di rendere le persone consapevoli di ciò che implicava era il suo abuso di potere”.

You know. After I met Katy, we sang a worship song, “open the eyes of my heart” She was cool and kind. When other people were around she was cold as ice even called the act of kissing me “gross” to the entire set while filming. Now I was pretty embarrassed but kept giving my all, as my ex was busy cheating on me and my daughter was just a toddler, I knew I had to endure for her sake. After the first day of shooting, Katy invited me to a strip club in Santa Barbara. I declined and told her “I have to go back to hotel and rest, because this job is all I have right now” So I saw Katy a couple times after her break up with Russel. This one time I brought a friend who was dying to meet her. It was Johny Wujek’s birthday party at moonlight roller way. And when I saw her, we hugged and she was still my crush. But as I turned to introduce my friend, she pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my penis. Can you imagine how pathetic and embarrassed i felt? I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men of power are perverse. But females with power are just as disgusting. So for all her good she is an amazing leader, hers songs are mainly great empowering anthems. And that is it. I continued to watch her use clips of her music videos for her world tour and then her dvd, only highlighting one of her male co-stars, and it was me. I made around 650 in total off of teenage dream. I was lorded over by her reps, about not discussing a single thing about anything regarding Katy publicly. And a couple interviews they edited and answered for me. So, happy anniversary to one of the most confusing, assaulting, and belittling jobs I’ve ever done. Yay #teenagedream I was actually gonna play the song and sing it on ukele for the anniversary, but then as I was tuning I thought, fuck this, I’m not helping her bs image another second.
