So, I’ve told you before that I’m a bad sleeper. I think I get it from my son. 🙂 He’s a bad sleeper, too.
Last night, the storms were rolling in, thunder would come along, too and then whichever of my Uncle Jim’s Labrador’s, My Boy Blu, or Libby, was sleeping with me at the time would get a bit anxious. Usually Libby. She gets that Lab, back-of-the-throat-high-pichted-WHIIIIIIINE. I would kiss Libby’s / or Blu’s velvety top of the dog nose, reassure…pet, pet, pet…DO NOT STRANGLE. They can’t help it that they’re waking you up…they don’t wear watches! They do not know that you have to get up and go to work in….ohhhh….5 hours.
So, as long as we were up and being Needy Dog, I was going to watch something cool on ‘Netflix!’ First of, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVE da ‘Netflix’ I’ve gotten to know and love and just treasure so many shows, only because i met them on ‘Netflix’… ‘Dr. Who’, ‘Sherlock’ (if you haven’t ever seen the BBC version of ‘Sherlock’, then, oh, my, i……i just….you just HAVE TO. YOU WILL BE ALL THE BETTER FOR IT. i promise!) ‘Luther’, ‘Supernatural’ ‘Being Human’…..it’s just endless. OH! ‘M-I5’…. See?
OK. So. We’ve covered Netflix….and I was looking around for something to watch. I didn’t go looking in my usual spots, BBC, History, Documentaries, because I wanted something that I wouldn’t mind missing most of….I was counting on being asleep five minutes into it. I saw “Katy Perry: Part of Me” BINGO! Now I really like Katy Perry but a Katy Perry biopic I figured would knock me right out. So I loaded it and off I went!
Boy, was I wrong!
This movie is stripped down, it’s honest, it’s truthful, it’s funny, it’s sweet, and it will break your heart with no mercy what-so-ever. Strictly speaking, it’s a biopic but they show everything. When Russell Brand, Katy Perry’s husband texts her and demands a divorce, they show that! When she is physically ill after being told her marriage is done, they show that! When 25,000 fans are shrieking her name in an arena in Rio and she is backstage sobbing and throwing up, they show that! It’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t stop watching it.
I think YOU won’t be able to stop watching it either. Let me know!
I can’t link you to her movie, since it’s a rental, but here’s the link to the wiki page about the movie. Booya
