THE WORST Katy Perry, "One of the Boys" (Capitol): Knock-off New Wave from a former Christian music artist trying to fashion herself into a hot sinner, this album is retrograde in every way: musically, politically and especially in its attempts to titillate. Perry makes Gwen Stefani seems like Gloria Steinem and defiles the memory of Bettie Page. Related: Complete year-end music coverage on Pop & Hiss.
