Katy Perry’s “Rise” Video Is Right On Time Because The Rio Olympic Struggle Is Reportedly Too Real.

Olympic determination has taken on a whole new meaning given the problems that have plagued Rio 2016 so far. From robberies to murdering the Olympic mascot, to the death of two people when the Olympic bike path fell into the ocean, to swimming in dead bodies and human feces. Yep you read that right. Oh and let’s not forget the Zika virus.

So thank you Katy for giving Olympians “Rise”. A song that might give them the extra oomph they need right now to finish a race….if that doesn’t do it, maybe these photos of her paddle-boarding with a nude Orlando Bloom will do the trick.

Insert obligatory “Rise” joke here.

Are You Excited For The Olympics?

Because I’m pretty excited for the Olympics. Parker here & I can’t help it, any event where nations are competing brings out my inner patriot. But overall, it’s just amazing what these athletes are able to do after years and years of practice and sacrifice and dedication.

A few Slacker artists are helping with the festivities this year – you probably already know about Katy Perry‘s contribution.

IF THAT DID NOT GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS, YOU MIGHT BE A ROBOT. I’M JUST SAYING.

Fifth Harmony are ready to cheer on the US Women’s Gymnastics team, too, retweeting a preview of the team’s theme.

YESSSSSSSSSSS! USA! USA!

I’ll be watching the Opening Ceremonies and tweeting Friday night – watch with me and talk back by following @parkeronslacker!

Get psyched up between now and then by listening to Party Hits on Slacker!
