Katy Perry’s Prism: The Reviews Are In!

Perry puts her past behind her with Prism, earning praise from critics in the process.

Katy Perry’s Prism is not Teenage Dream.

She made that point abundantly clear from the moment she first announced her new album, symbolically burning the blue wig she wore during her “California Gurls” phase, then literally laying the era to rest at a mock funeral. This was probably inevitable — after all, Katy isn’t the same person she was when she released Teenage Dream (shattering records tends to have that effect) — though that didn’t make her reinvention any less surprising. Most times, artists follow up the biggest album of their careers with, well, more of the same.
