In an interview with Rolling Stone, Katy Perry pretty much blew off a question about cultural appropriation: “I guess I’ll just stick to baseball and hot dogs, and that’s it,” she told the magazine. “I know that’s a quote that’s gonna come to f-k me in the ass, but can’t you appreciate a culture? I guess, like, everybody has to stay in their lane? I don’t know.”

Perry has been widely criticized for appropriating black culture in numerous songs and music videos. She released the video this week for “This Is How We Do” in which she rocks fake nails and green hair extensions — her idea of a ‘hood chick, I guess.
