Katy Perry Would Rewrite ‘I Kissed A Girl’ To Remove LGBT Stereotypes
Katy Perry has revealed she’d re-write her iconic track ‘I Kissed A Girl’ to remove some outdated “stereotypes” about LGBT people…
Katy Perry rose to stardom in 2008 with her hit song ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ but reflecting on the track a decade later, the pop star has said that she would change a few things about the song.
In an interview with Glamour, where she watches fans covering some of her biggest hits, Perry said that she’d make a few changes to the song, which was included on her debut album alongside another fairly problematic number entitled ‘Ur So Gay’.
“I think we’ve really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years. We’ve come a long way,” Perry said. “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.”
She added: “If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it… Lyrically, it has a couple stereotypes in it.”
