Model wirft Katy Perry sexuelle Belästigung vor

Männermodel und Schauspieler Josh Kloss wirft der Sängerin Katy Perry („I Kissed a Girl“, „Teenage Dream“) vor, ihn auf einer Party im Jahr 2010 sexuell belästigt zu haben. In einem Instagram-Posting beschreibt Kloss, der vor neun Jahren im Musikvideo zu „Teenage Dream“ Perrys Liebhaber spielte, den Vorfall im Detail.

„Als ich mich umdrehte, um einen Freund vorzustellen, zog sie meine Hose und Unterhose, so weit sie konnte, runter, um manchen ihrer männlichen Freunde und den Leuten um uns herum meinen Penis zu zeigen“, so Kloss. „Könnt ihr euch vorstellen, wie erbärmlich und beschämt ich mich fühlte?“

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.

„Frauen mit Macht genauso widerlich“

Kloss würde das nun nur sagen, weil „unsere Kultur darauf abzielt zu beweisen, dass Männer mit Macht pervers sind. Aber Frauen mit Macht sind genauso widerlich.“ Die Songs der Sängerin, so Kloss weiter, seien in erster Linie Hymnen zur Stärkung von Frauen.

Doch für ihn sei der Job für Perry einer der verwirrendsten, verletzendsten und erniedrigendsten gewesen, die er je hatte, so Kloss in dem Posting weiter. Die Sängerin äußerte sich noch nicht zu den Vorwürfen. Kostümdesigner Johnny Wujek, auf dessen Geburtstag sich der Vorfall ereignet haben soll, streitet das ab.
