Forgotten Taylor Swift enemy Katy Perry feels terrible that some dude in Tennessee was in an online relationship with someone posing as her for six years. I feel bad for him, too. In addition to all the hearthache and psychological trauma, the world is now aware that you were catfished by someone posing as friggin’ Katy Perry. Why couldn’t Fate have eased up on the guy and had him catfished by a hot celebrity, say, Dame Judi Dench? Or Joanne the Scammer?
Poor Spencer Morrill appeared on Catfish: The TV Show, asking the hosts to verify for him that the woman he had been dating online for 6 years was, indeed, the girl who paddle boarded with Orlando Bloom’s uncut peen earlier this month. Spencer regularly “communicated via email, text and messaging apps and had once talked on the phone” with an evil Internet succubus. He even spent some of his life savings on an engagement ring for her. It turns out that it wasn’t Katy Perry. It was some Canadian chick named Harriet who lives in London. Katy was asked about the incident on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up (via UsWeekly) on Tuesday and she said:
“Somebody sent me a link. I didn’t actually read through it, because I just think it’s really unfortunate and really sad.”
I do the very same thing with the not opening the link, and just clocking the headline. Unlike Katy, it gets me in trouble. The other Mr. Harvey will quiz me on something he sent me and I’ll fake like I know what he’s talking about and he’ll know I’m a filthy liar because I’m a terrible actress. But back to Katy, she said that she feels sorry for the fool:
“You know, like, my heart goes out to him actually, because anybody that’s been fooled like that or just, you know, people have dreams, and people live in different parts of the world where not everything is always so accessible. Like, we live on the coast, and we, you know, we get stuff in a way that some other people don’t get, and I feel bad for him, and so I didn’t really like to indulge in that, because my heart … I empathize.”
That’s like, so nice of her, you know? If you watch the vid below (start at 26:25), you get to see a snippet of the incredibly uncomfortable first meeting between Spencer and the faux “Katy Perry.” He’s a lanky sort who looks like he’s slowly becoming unglued in front of our eyes but desperately holding on to the fantasy. She looks very pale save for the stark kitty eyes, defiant in the face of her accusers but sick with guilt on the inside. Yes, this is entertainment.
