Katy Perry attends The 56th Annual CMA Awards at Bridgestone Arena on November 09, 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The apple cider vinegar community is blaming Katy Perry for Bragg‘s allegedly new watered-down formula. Customers have taken to social media to express their disappointment at this supposed “change” to Bragg’s product, as TikToker @tennesseejill uploaded a video in an aisle full of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, pointing out that some bottles were darker while others had a lighter hue. “A couple months ago, my friend told me that Bragg changed their potency. Probably because it’s helped so many people,” the TikTok alleged in the clip. The clip has over 1.4 million views, and 117,000 likes.

“I didn’t believe her, I thought this was a brand I could trust,” she added. She then showed the bottles from her December 18 visit. TikToker Jill described the situation in the caption as “heartbreaking.”

In the comments section, the hardcore apple cider vinegar (ACV) fanatics started throwing the singer’s name under the bus. One person wrote: “I heard Katy Perry just bought this company. Can’t trust it anymore.” Another said, “It’s diluted with Katy Perry.” One person added, “Company was bought out by Katy Perry. So of course they will cheapen the product,” to which Jill replied, “Agreed. People are telling me I’m being ridiculous, but I have never seen this of Bragg, then I hear KP owns it now, explains it all.” One person wondered, “just trying to understand what the hell Katy perry is doing owning ACV? Lol.”

Linda Boardman, chief executive officer at Bragg Live Food Products addressed this in a statement to Eater. She denied there had been any changes to the formula and added that any differences are down to it being organic. “Because Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar is a live, unpasteurized and unfiltered product, color variation is expected. This variation can be attributed to the type of apples used, the season or the particular harvest, and the age of the living product within.”

In 2019, Perry and her fiance Orlando Bloom acquired Bragg with three other investors, per the Independent. The Santa Barbara-based brand has become a well-known health food brand since its creation in 1912 by renowned health advocate Paul Bragg. Perry, who grew up in Santa Barbara, said her lifelong friendship with the Bragg family motivated her to become an investor. “Patricia has been part of my family forever, even giving me my first guitar,” Perry said of CEO Patricia Bragg in the release. “My mother introduced me to Bragg products, and it’s been a staple since my childhood in Santa Barbara and continues to be a wellness remedy in my professional vocal career.”

20 Pop Songs That Turn 10 in 2023

2013 was such a good year for pop music. Drake, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Lorde, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Britney Spears all had new albums that dominated the airwaves. We’re definitely still listening to a lot (okay, most) of these pop hits from 2013, which turn ten years old in 2023!

Take a look below at some of 2013’s biggest hits:

  • #thatPower - will.i.am ft. Justin Bieber

    Bieber lent his voice on this dance track off of will.i.am’s fourth studio album, #willpower.

  • All Of Me - John Legend

    This R&B hit is from Legend’s fourth studio album, Love in the Future. The album was executive produced by Legend, Kanye West and Dave Tozer, featuring guest appearances from Kimbra, Rick Ross, Stacy Barthe and Seal.

  • Applause - Lady Gaga

    “Applause” was Gaga’s lead single from her third studio album, Artpop. Gaga began planning the project in 2011, shortly after the launch of her second effort, Born This Way.

  • Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

    Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” became the subject of a legal dispute with the family of Marvin Gaye and Bridgeport Music, who argued the song infringed on copyrights to Gaye’s 1977 single “Got to Give It Up.” On top of that, model Emily Ratajkowski accused Thicke of sexually assaulting her on the music video set, alleging that he groped her bare breasts from behind during the filming.

  • Dark Horse - Katy Perry

    “Dark Horse” is from Perry’s fourth studio album, Prism, which was initially planned to be “darker” than her previous material. Prism ultimately became a prominently dance-inspired record.

  • Drunk In Love - Beyoncé ft. JAY Z

    Beyoncé’s self-titled fifth studio album gave us this awesome collab with husband Jay-Z as well as “Partition,” “Pretty Hurts,” “XO” and “Flawless.”

  • Get Lucky - Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers

    Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is from their fourth (and seemingly final) studio album, inspired by late ’70s and early ’80s American music from Los Angeles.

  • Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

    “Heart Attack” comes from Demi’s fourth studio album Demi, where she wanted to change her sound from her self-described “generic” third album Unbroken. Lovato wanted her fourth album to “have songs that excited her.”

  • Help Me Lose My Mind - Disclosure

    Disclosure’s Settle album is the electronic music duo’s best musical work by far, with “Help Me Lose My Mind” being the best of all.

  • Hold On, We’re Going Home - Drake ft. Majid Jordan

    Drake’s third studio album Nothing Was the Same gave us all his best hits with “Started From The Bottom,” “Worst Behavior,” and “All Me.”

  • Loyal - Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga

    Chris Brown had dudes all over singing “These girls ain’t loyal” all year long in 2013.

  • Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

    From Timberlake’s third studio album The 20/20 Experience, “Mirrors” is the far superior song choice to his collab with Jay-Z, “Suit & Tie.” Though the music video for “Suit & Tie” was great, the song is quite annoying. “Mirrors” is a song for the ages.

  • Royals - Lorde

    Lorde emerged on the music scene with Pure Heroine and gave us an amazing debut album. “Royals” made her a star pretty quickly.

  • Sweater Weather - The Neighbourhood

    Every time the weather gets below 70 degrees, this song is sure to come on.

  • The Way - Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller

    Mac Miller and Ariana Grande met in 2012 when the two covered “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” A year later, they collaborated again in “The Way,” from Grande’s debut studio album Yours Truly. The two didn’t start dating until August 2016 and ended the relationship in May 2018.

  • The Worst - Jhené Aiko

    “The Worst” is arguably the best song off of Aiko’s debut EP Sail Out. The album has notable features with Vince Staples, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Ab-Soul.

  • Work - Iggy Azalea

    We love how this song has made its comeback on TikTok with hilarious videos of people walking “a mile in these Louboutins.”

  • Work Bitch - Britney Spears

    This is the best song to work out to. Thank you, Britney Spears!

  • Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

    You could not escape this song in 2013 even if you tried. From the memes to the media fixation with Miley Cyrus during this era, “Wrecking Ball” will forever be a part of pop culture history.

  • Young And Beautiful - Lana Del Rey

    Sad girl Lana Del Rey walked so that girls like Phoebe Bridgers and Olivia Rodrigo could run.
