Katy Perry Says She Would Rewrite 'I Kissed A Girl'
Katy Perry says she would change some of the lyrics to her breakout hit “I Kissed a Girl” to get rid of “a couple of stereotypes.”
The song, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in April, was written by Perry with Max Martin, Dr. Luke and Cathy Dennis.
Among its lyrics: “It’s not what good girls do / Not how they should behave” and “I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it / It felt so wrong.”
In a new interview with Glamour, Perry admitted: “If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it. Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it.
“We've really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years. We’ve come a long way. Bisexuality wasn't as talked about back then, or any type of fluidity. Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What's true for you can evolve.”
