Concert Movie

International superstar singer Katy Perry and the various things that spin upon or spray out of her breasts are the latest to get a concert movie. No doubt it will be full of uplifting platitudes about achieving your dreams and working hard as well as the glorious benefits of whip cream and other delights.
