Alright guys, Katy Perry is one hell of a personality. She is literally everywhere on the music scene and has been going strong for more than a decade. She has had a crazy journey in the music industry, even though I don’t exactly know what has happened to her but only judging from the way she used to change her look and support short hair.
Anyway, Katy was having fun with her girl friends in a castle located in the Hollywood Hills which was mainly used for shooting horror films and p*rnos. She just realized that she kissed a girl and she liked it. She was kind of confused if she would like it or not but it seems like it was something that she wanted to try out anyway.
Katy spoke about the fact that there was a girl that she was interested in but she never kissed her though she probably wanted to.
The song was inspired by a friendship I had with a girl when I was 15, but I didn’t kiss her. I was totally obsessed with her. She was beautiful-porcelain skin, perfect lips – and I still talk to her, but I’ve never told her the song is about her.Katy Perry
Her boyfriend at the time was Travie McCoy who seemed to be cool with her trying out different stuff.
When she was recording her record she’d send me songs, and when we were making our record I’d send her songs. So she sent me a demo of ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ and we were on tour, and I was playing it during our changeover, just watching the kids react. So she came out to one of our shows, and the song came out and she flipped out, like, ‘What are you doing playing that?’ and I took her to the side of the stage so she could watch the crowd react. And now, well, she’s huge.Travie McCoy
Also, Kesha did appear in the video. This was about the time that Kesha wasn’t really famous. In fact, even Katy Perry was gaining popularity and I believe she wasn’t in her peak of stardom yet.
The song was partially inspired by Scarlett Johansson. She had this to say when she was informed about it.
That’s flattering, but my lips are kind of taken.
I had no idea. I should get a cut!Scarlett Johansson
Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus claimed that she was the subject of the song in a 2017 interview of 103.5 KTU’s Cubby and Carolina in the Morning.
Katy Perry, she’s been a friend of mine for a really long time. We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we’ll have been friends for 10 years. I think that’s my friend that I’ve known the longest, which is really, really weird.
When she came out with ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio, they said, ‘Who’d you write that about?’ And she said me.Miley Cyrus
Katy Perry even won the National Equality Award conferred to her by the Human Rights Commission in 2017 a decade after she released the song.
I’m just a singer-songwriter, honestly. I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-sized pop songs. For instance, ‘I kissed a girl and I liked it.’ Truth be told, I did more than that. How was I going to reconcile that with a gospel singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro-conversion camps? What I did know was I was curious, and even then I knew sexuality wasn’t as black and white as this dress. And honestly, I haven’t always gotten it right, but in 2008 when that song came out I knew that I started a conversation and a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along, too.Katy Perry’s acceptance speech
Well yeah all of this happened after Katy decided to finally get the song off despite the fact that most record labels probably didn’t want to release it because of its bise*ual orientation.
I really like Katy Perry’s songs. I feel like they are catchy, rhythmic and really nice to listen to. I kissed a girl is the kind of song that can make men actually want to sing like Katy. But that is besides the point. Amazing song. Hope you guys liked it. Let me know in the comments what you think about it.
