Katy Perry . . . at Starbucks?

For as long as the modern coffee shop has existed there has been music in coffee shops. Often, the best part of walking into the shop to purchase a delicious, warm beverage is hearing the smooth tunes of a hardly known indie band. Today, as I stood in line I was slightly appalled to see that Starbucks was selling the latest offering by Katy Perry, Teenage Dream. While, I love the upbeat, dancibility of Perry’s music I would hardly associate it with coffee, or the early morning hours. Leaves me to wonder what is next for Starbucks. Will I walk in next week to find a DJ spinning at 7:30 am? I certainly hope not.

    I sort of disagree. Yeah, it’s weird that we’re seeing something so commercialized and uninspired at Starbucks, but when you think about it, Starbucks itself is commercialized and uninspired. It’s not like we’re seeing it at some hipster coffee shop in Adams Morgan or anything.

    This is funny. Careful with commas, spelling, and AP style (album titles are in quotes). 3/4

    I think it is a way to invite a younger crown into Starbucks. I think Katy Perry has been so successful lately that they may think it will draw business. But I completely agree with you, I think they should go back to the relaxing vibe of good old starbucks where people can go in and study.
