HEAR ME ROAR
I love it when celebs use their profile power for good, so I was over the moon when I heard about Katy Perry’s ROAR contest on Good Morning America. As a mother, Katy and I have had our ups and downs. Some of her songs are banned from the house, since my youngest likes to find the most embarrassing places to sing some of her more risque lyrics. (It made church just a little more interesting that’s for sure, and that bank teller had a good giggle.) I will admit though, as much as I hate the song, “I Kissed a Girl” has been stuck in my head on more than one occasion.
On the positive side, some of her songs have great messages- “Roar” being one of them. High schools from all over the country submitted their videos for a chance to win a private contest. My favorite was Verrado High School. Although they didn’t win, I love this video. It’s inspiring.
Thanks, Katy, keep up this kind of greatness and we might forget about the spike in teen pregnancy spurred on by “Teenage Dream”.
