Katy Perry loves Dusty's in Silver Lake.Why don't you?

39830996 Yesterday in the Guide section of latimes.com, my colleague Charlie Amter (who just spent, like, 20 hours waiting in line to see Jane's Addiction at El Cid) posted a list that featured Katy Perry's top eight places to hang out in L.A.

The list isn't exactly earth shattering: Perry likes a lot of popular L.A. bars and restaurants, including Dusty's in Silver Lake, Alcove Cafe and Bakery in Los Feliz, and the Little Door in the Fairfax district. Lists on The Guide are formatted so that readers can click on a thumbs up or a thumbs down to indicate whether they approve of a particular list. Perry's list went up a little before noon yesterday and by midnight it had already generated an astounding 2,321 thumbs down, compared with only 1,290 thumbs up.

OK, these places aren't new, but as far as I know, they're also not loathed. So why all the negativity surrounding her picks? Fess up L.A., are you just mad that Perry didn't actually kiss a girl in her "I Kissed a Girl" video?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I gave the list a thumbs-down because it seems that all these "celebs" you guys pick choose the same ol' trendy places. Do any of them venture out into downtown LA or the San Gabriel Valley? (Obviously not hip enough.) Their selections are always in Hollyweird or Silver Lake; same ol' same ol' wanna-be trendy people who just want to be seen. I guess I'm just disenchanted with these fools.
