Prism

Katy Perry is no stranger to pop stardom and breaking records, with her first single off of Prism, "Roar" is her 8th number one single, and perhaps one of the best songs on the album. Collaborating with a host of incredible music-makers, Prism is if full of empowering ballads with a recurring theme of "whatever doesn't hurt me makes me stronger." Moving from disco to pop rock and rap, each song is nicely-crafted pop tunes and we definitely see the different colors of Katy (like a prism, right?). In many ways this album plays it safe, so not every song is a memorable Katy classic, but the entire album is enjoyable and showcases her vocal talent impressively.

Although a lot of the album focuses on being a stronger person all on your own, Prism also has some great reflections on love lost, love found and insecurity, one stand-out track being "Ghost," all about the feeling of emptiness which comes with missing someone in your life (and which we can only assume is looking back on her recent divorce) and "Love Me", all about seeing yourself anew in someone's eyes and embracing an optimistic new future. She also includes a couple of nice party jams to break up the ballads, like the layered "This Is How We Do," and remarkably one of the best tracks on the album is strange "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J. Katy's incredible voice really shows what it can do with this tricky trap music beat, and shows us all a cooler side of Katy.

Alright let me start out by saying that, I do not think you should be forced to like anime. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions out what they watch. But their is some bogus reason to why people say they hate it. 1. "Anime is For Kids" - Alright we all know this isn't true. Sure some are directed towards kids but ones like Tokyo Ghoul, Attack On Titan, Boku no Pico, and several others that would definitely change people's mind. 2. "Anime is a bad influence" - And Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead arent?  3. "Anime has very inappropriate messages to them that are harmful to children and adults" - Doesnt everything have their little "parodies" of the original that may have a rating of Triple X? If its out there, there is a "parody" of it. Not just anime.
