Katy Perry was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Monday night and made some controversial statements.

It started it out pretty innocently.

“I am obsessed with Japanese people,” Perry said. “I love everything about them and they are so wonderful as human beings.”

But then she took it up a notch.

“I’m so obsessed I want to skin you and wear you like Versace,” the pop star said referring to a Japanese person she said she was obsessed with.

The pop singer was obviously joking when she said she wanted to skin Japanese people but just minutes earlier she was talking about how many of her fans at concerts are so young they have to be escorted by their parents which makes her joke all the more controversial.

Viewers of the American Music Awards got a real treat. A real racist treat.

During the awards show, pop star Katy Perry performed her hit single, “Unconditionally,” in yellowface. Donning a chest-baring kimono, black shellacked hair, and pouty red lipstick, Perry turned her performance into a caricature of Japanese people and icons — complete with parasol twirling, backlit shoji screens, and a bevvy of geisha backup dancers.
