F*cked Up’s Damian Abraham Did Not Exactly Enjoy Katy Perry’s Marine Video

If you didn't catch it last week, the video for "Part of Me," Katy Perry's not-about–Russell Brand but also totally-about–Russell Brand new single, featured one ex-Mrs. B dealing with a breakup by … enlisting in the Marines. And dancing around the base all G.I. Jane-style. It was unexpected, to say the least, and seemed like the kind of choice that someone might have a disapproving opinion about. Enter Fucked Up front man Damian Abraham, who tweeted, "Seeing Katy Perry as a soldier in 'Part of Me' really makes me think that we need to start a war so she can go die." Yeah, even he realized that was unhelpful and way harsh, so here's his follow-up: "Yes I'm aware my last tweet was kinda dumb but so is glamorizing war to sell records to idiots. Katy Perry Still Sucks." Beef plus politics (plus a very intimidating hardcore singer): This could get real.
