“Teenage Dream” pop-star Katy Perry has recently been accused of sexual misconduct for the second time. Georgia TV host, Tina Kandelaki, has recently come forward accusing Katy Perry of inappropriately touching her at an industry event. Mrs. Kandelaki even said that the 3 time platinum selling artist went as far as to try and kiss the TV host and when she rejected her advances Katy Perry allegedly continued to carry on her inappropriate behavior with other guests at the party. This allegation doesn’t come long after earlier this week the “Teenage Dream” music video star Josh Kloss stated that Katy Perry had pulled down his pants and exposed his penis at a party in 2010.
Kandelaki was inspired to come forward about her sexual misconduct allegations after hearing about Perry’s alleged mistreatment of Josh Kloss. In an ever so delicate state of the music industry, Kloss wanted to come forward to show that men with power aren’t the only ones taking advantage of others in the industry. Even though Katy Perry hasn’t made a comment on either allegation, this isn’t the first time she has come under pressure for inappropriate sexual behavior.
Starting her career as a Christian Pop star in 2001, Katy Perry has since made a drastic change from her original roots. The “I Kissed a Girl” superstar also drew some criticism in early 2018 after she kissed the American Idol contestant Benjamin Glaze. He later shared in an interview that he had never kissed a girl before and was take aback when the pop star decided to take it upon herself to change that. Shawn Mendes also had a similar experience with Ms. Perry when she grabbed his butt at the iHeartRadio Music Awards event in 2017.
Sexual misconduct accusations aren’t the only thing that Katy Perry has been preoccupied with, her 2013 hit “Dark Horse,” which featured hip-hop legend Juicy J, was just recently found guilty of copyright infringement. Although there has been much controversy over if the song truly broke the copyright laws, the jury found that there was enough convincing evidence to prove that it did. 2019 has been a rough year for Katy Perry in and out of the music industry.
