Medvirkende i "Teenage Dream"-video beskylder Katy Perry for sexchikane


"Hun trak mine træningsbusker og underbukser ud"

Fotomodellen Josh Kloss, som spillede over for Katy Perry i hendes video til det store hit "Teenage Dream" fra 2010, beskylder nu popstjernen for sexchikane, dog ikke under videooptagelserne, men på et senere tidspunkt. Det gør han i et opslag på Instagram i forbindelse med videoens ni års jubilæum. Se videoen øverst og opslaget nederst.

Kloss skriver blandet andet, at Perry i første omgang var venlig, da de to mødtes, men senere blev kold som is under videooptagelserne, når der var andre til stede og kaldte det "rædselsfuldt" at skulle kysse Kloss over for hele filmsettet. Han følte sig pinligt berørt, men indvilligede, da han havde brug for pengene for at kunne forsørge sin lille datter, og i øvrigt var hans kæreste ham utro. Efter den første dags optagelse inviterede Perry ham på stripklub i Santa Barbara, men han sagde nej tak for at hvile ud og holde fokus på arbejdet. Herefter skriver Kloss:

"Jeg så hende nogle gange efter hendes brud med Russell (komikeren Russell Brand, som hun blev skilt fra i 2012, red.). Den ene gang tog jeg en ven med, som ville give hvad som helst for at møde hende. Det var til Johnny Wujeks (tøjdesigner, red.) fødselsdagsfest på Moonlight Roller Way (rulleskøjtediskotek, red.). Og da jeg så hende, krammede vi, og jeg var stadig vild med hende. Men da jeg vendte mig om for at præsentere min ven, trak hun mine træningsbukser og underbukser så langt ud, at hun over for et par drengevenner og skaren rundt om os kunne fremvise – min penis. Kan I forestille jer, hvor ynkelig og pinligt berørt jeg følte mig?"

Kloss skriver videre:

"Jeg siger alt dette nu, fordi vores kultur er opsat på at vise, at mænd med magt er perverse. Men kvinder med magt er lige så kvalmende" og senere, at han blev beordret af Perrys repræsentanter til ikke at omtale noget som helst vedrørende Perry offentligt. Han tilføjer: "Tillykke med jubilæet for det mest forvirrende, overgrebsprægede og nedværdigende job, jeg nogensinde har haft."

NME, der bringer historien, har uden held forsøgt at få en kommentar fra Katy Perry, som heller ikke offentligt har udtalt sig om sagen.

Katy Perry udsendte 9. august en ny single, "Small Talk".

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.
