Music has long been a platform to celebrate life, honor self identity, and make major announcements. With her new song “Never Worn White,” an unexpectedly somber performance, Katy Perry reveals she’s pregnant with her first child!
No one can begrudge her for becoming a mother; that’s just having a heart.
Yet musically, “Never Worn White” leaves much to be desired. It drips with saccharine sentimentality that pours on the affectation in thick broad strokes. Perry sounds blissful, happy, and in the moment. Too bad everything surrounding her is milquetoast.
