For Katy Perry, there is going back, after all. The singer's video for "Dark Horse," a collaboration with Juicy J where she asks whether "you dare to do this," no longer shows a pendant that some Muslims criticized as blasphemous. Sometimes you will dare to disturb the universe, but then you'll realize you've changed your mind.But will you ever realize how dumb and cowardly that can be?
The offending jewelry, which appears and is engulfed in flames around the 1:15 mark, is now missing from the video on YouTube. At the time of this post, at least, you could still see it in the Vevo version, which is how we got the before-and-after image above. There's no mention of the change from Perry's Twitter account, but Iqbal has claimed victory on Change.org, writing that "we couldn't have done it without everyone's support."Who's support? The crackpots protesting the pendant's presence? All she's done is capitulate to violent maniacs, and become another Hollywood dhimmi.
