Perry Defends Knife Picture

LATEST: KATY PERRY has hit back at her controversial knife snap, insisting she is "against all violence"
The I Kissed A Girl was pictured earlier this week (22Oct08) holding a blade up to her face in a promotional picture taken for her album, One For The Boys.
Anti-crime protesters in Britain slammed the star, branding her "out of her mind" and "unacceptable".
But a representative for Perry has defended her decision to pose with the knife, telling MTV News, "Katy Perry is against all violence. The photo in question was taken in 2005 and is in no way related to the current events in the U.K."
And Fall Out Boy star Pete Wentz has also stood up for Perry's posed snap, saying, "It's not just because Katy's boyfriend Travis (MCCoy) is my dude, but it's absolutely ridiculous to compare that photo to somebody promoting violence."

I am absoultely with the people who are defending her. The picture was intended as a representation of a tougher image. It has nothing to do with the knife crime in the UK, and the UK press are so stupid to put that cynical mark on her. They're small minded people who just want to cause trouble. As she said, she is against all violence. A knife doesn't have to be violence and people need to see further than what's in front of them. There is more to life than trying to put people down and at no intention was the knife crimes of terrible people supposed to be related. I think choosing a knife is not smart because people are bound to jump to conclusions. I know if I was in her position then I wouldn't have done it, even if it was before she was famous. She is contraversial enough as it is so it's easy to blame her! I don't see why people should just blame her as if she is promoting knife crime or something. There is more to life, so see the best side and let this go.
