When news came out that Katy Perry would be starting her own record label, people had very strong feelings about it, both positive and negative.
This morning, we played a little fill-in-the-blank and asked Twitter:
Katy Perry is launching her own record label. Fill in the blank: This makes me feel ____ about the music industry.

Reader reactions pretty much covered the spectrum, ranging from despondent:
@HuffPostEnt so, so sad

@HuffPostEnt kinda delighted. She may be silly or frivolous, but she is a woman, who isn't afraid to take risks. I say good luck to her.

@HuffPostEnt Makes me feel the flux of the music industry. No one promotes singers anymore, when they get enough $$ they promote themselves

"Boobies" “@HuffPostEnt: Katy Perry is launching her own record label. Fill in the blank: This makes me feel ____ about the music industry.”

Regardless of whether you consider it a boon to the music industry or a plague on the music industry, one of the remaining questions we're intrigued by is what she'll call the new label. Obviously, this is Katy Perry we're talking about -- a woman who has donned cupcake bras and a carousel dress -- so it's unlikely to be boring. We opened up the question to you guys yesterday on Twitter, and (in between Twitter blackouts) got back a lot of whimsical, sarcastic and occasionally boob-centric suggestions. Check out the slideshow below of reader ideas for a record label name and see what you think.
