Katy Perry Gets High Schoolers Suspended

| Filed under: Katy Perry



Or at least getting kids suspended from school!

In Texas, two twirl team members were suspended from a couple of football games for dancing to I Kissed A Girl, the controversial girl-on-girl romp ballad that just won't go away.

The team performed the dance as part of a pep rally at the school. Teachers found the number inappropriate, but some parents and classmates think that the punishment is unnecessarily harsh. In a sign of solidarity worthy of a cheesy high school flick, the drumline has refused to perform without the twirlers.

Fight the power!

  9. 9

    …this happened in Texas? I'm shocked. I thought that Texas was so forward thinking and progressive? And isn't our 'cowboy' Presidenture from TX? Ding dang…and "Jambalaya".

    really? that's bullshit, we're not in 1950 people!!! who gives a flying fuck?! it's a song, a catchy fucking song.

  11. 11

    Re: wowimawesome – there are appropriate places for appropriate things. majority rules

  16. 16

    like they dont play songs about having sex at pep rallys? please.

  17. 17

    …or is it innapropriate because THE BIBLE says it is??

  18. 18

    Big deal. If they wanted to censor the dance music they should have asked to hear it beforehand. These girls weren't warned so why should they be punished now? Frankly though, it's ridiculous. I could understand if the song was "I ate out a girl and I liked it," but it's not. It shouldn't be considered any differently than dancing to "Kiss Kiss" by Chris Brown.

  19. 19

    cheerleaders at my school danced to it at a rally a couple weeks ago. no one cared. but i guess California isn't Texas

  20. 20

    i hope you fucks made a butload of money off this irrisponsible song. thanks for polluting the minds of little girls. fucking fame whores will do or say anything regardless of whose listening,,,, rot in hell queer fuckers

  21. 21

    Love her..Love the song, but now my 5 y/o Godson is singing it. The song needs to go away, but that punishment was way too harsh

  22. 22

    …next thing Perez will report is that they are going to build an air conditioned Ferris Wheel in Iraq to garner more tourists! LOLOLOL

  23. 23

    She annoys meeeee!I do like her songs though….

  24. 24

    They got expelled for dancing to I Kissed a Girl??

    Are you serious??

    That is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. o they get thrown out for that but kids that threaten teachers and classmates get to stay?

    Good to know! Thank God I've left school….Uni is much better :P

  25. 25

    I kissed where she pee's & she liked it!

  26. 26

    How dumb! Good for the drumline to stick up for such b.s. though

  27. Rovex says – reply to this


    Um, the song is HOMOPHOBIC.. Its using lipstick lesbianism to titillate straight boys. It mocks homosexuality, it doesn't promote it.

  28. 28

    That's why there are people called "advisors" who can avoid this kind of situation. They know that's not going to be an easy pill to swallow.

  29. 29

    i guess it depends on the area, cause here in California they played it at my school a couple of times and there wasn't any controversy. And its just a fucking song. The people listening to it should get that from the get-go. There isn't any subliminal message telling you to go lesbian! Its just a good catchy dance tune that shouldn't be examined any more than that.

    Re: KEEFER – right back at ya asshole

  31. 31

    This girl is so overrated!

  32. 32

    What is the big deal girl on girl action in high schools and colleges have been going on forever!! I know I went to both :)

  33. 33

    I LOVE KATY PERRY , she rocks =D

  34. 34

    When I was in high school a lesbian was suspended from school for wearing a t-shirt that said something about kissing a girl, it was a t-shirt made for men that boys at the school were allowed to wear, just not a lesbian. This kind of behavior is common, and it is about time that public schools stop trying to preach their private morality. These "twirl" girls dance to songs about getting it on in the club and partying, why not this song?

  35. 35

    Classic U.S. 'ethics': The only county that can propel the porn industry so far into the billions of $$ that it outgrosses Disney per annum, yet can still pretend to be prudish about a light-weight pop lyric! Maybe they should check the dictionary under "HYPOCRISY".

  36. DaLa says – reply to this


    Why do you waste space on this irrelevant creepy skank?

  37. 37

    I am from Texas and not all of Texas is "conservative" and would get offended by a song. It was probably some close minded bible thumping freak town

    My sister got supspended for wearing a speghetti strap, a full length one that covered her tatas and everything.. so this really doesn't suprise me.. Censorship is fucking lame, but I can understand how some parents may feel to watch two young girls dancing to "I Kissed A Girl" at a pep rally.. You guys can bitch and say this is unfair all you want to, but there is a time and place for everything, personally I don't think a song like this is appropriate at a school function, just as I wouldn't had it been "I Kissed A Boy".. Some parents are very protective of their children and what they are exposed too.. my mom flipped shit when it was number 1 on the radio- I can imagine she would be even more upset had she gone to a school where you hope they are somewhat protecting your children from the garbage and watching them dance to it at a pep rally.. Anyone saying they don't get it obviously isn't taking into consideration that some parents DON'T want their kids exposed to mindless fucking garbage, which is exactly what this song is as much as I liked it before it was overplayed to death.. To not only promote your daughter to make out with other chicks but to also not even know their name while doing so just for fun isn't exactly what people want their daughters dancing around to during a school affair, I totally get it.. It sucks but yeah I get it.

  40. 40

    i wanna kiss katy perry.

  41. 41

    P.S. I don't agree with the expelling, but I understand why it was something that got them in trouble.

  42. 42

    Well, that song is HORRIBLE and ANNOYING as fuck, and anyone listening to it should be punished severely. Suspension is not enough, force them to listen to the song for 24 hours, that should set them straight.

  43. 43


  44. 44

    Can you please stop writing about her?
    She's soooo boring.
    And trys soooo hard to be sexy that she just looks awkward. (IKAG Music video + MTV music awards)

  45. 45

    That's really stupid. When I was in high school they used to make us have a teacher approve the music we used for pep rallies like a week before the rally so that kind of thing didn't happen. I don't understand why they got suspended, that's dumb. I could understand them getting a warning but suspended? Are you serious?

  46. 46

    I am not lezbo at all, but I gotta say her ass looks cute in this pic, not too big not too small, just cute and perfect =) the damn song is annoying, thanks god my 11 yr old daughter is not into this pop crap, but she is into classic rock =)

  47. 47

    I dont even know what to say….what is wrong with people?

  48. 48


  49. 49

    OH MY GOD that is so homophobic!!!!!!!! What's wrong with those teachers? There are songs out there about things like stalking and adultery but no one seems to care until someone starts singing about being a lesbian. It's unbelievable!

  50. 50

    "I kissed a girl and I liked it." There is absolutely nothing offensive about that, unless you are homophobic!!!!!!!

  51. 51

    Re: KEEFER – your hate will give you a first class ticket to hell! come rot with me then! you sound like someone who is dying to come out of closet! hahaha

  52. 52

    What bigotry in the USA…Texas!

  53. 53

    Re: Rovex

    That s right! And this makes it even MORE bigoted….i think it s actually an anti-lesbian song!

  54. 54

    Re: Everett
    That s exactly what baffles me for many years! The most disgusting extreme porn websites are hosted (no, NOT in Europe!!) in the USA and the most ridiculously inflated silicone boobs are placed in artificial womens bodies in the USA!!!! And then USA FAINTS and gets hysterical everytime there s a slip of nipple somewhere!??? It s really LAUGHABLE and sort of schizophrenic to the rest of the world!
    What SICK and bigoted and hypocritical brains the US people must have….

  55. 55

    LAME… they shouldn't have gotten suspended

  56. 56

    Re: sababbott – EVERYONE wants to kiss Katy Perry

  57. 57

    Well, you know, I was totally straight until this song came out….so yeah. Not. Maybe not appropriate for a school function, but not that big a deal.

  58. 58

    Ahhh, Judeo-Facism at it's worst. What's next? Expending girls for friendly hugging? Christian people annoy me!!!!!!!!

  59. DALE says – reply to this


    Dr.luke writes her a hit, now all she does is ride it's coat tails.

  60. 60

    Who cares, they should be suspended for having their heads up their asses and liking that lame ass fucking song :)

  61. 61

    these morons crack me up; do they really think something as essential and profound as sexual orientation is going to be influenced by a pop song? I do like the bit about the drum line not performing without the twirlers, however. It's just so…gay.

  62. LAWA says – reply to this


    Lol are texas people living in the dark ages lol here in england no one really gives a fuck bout the song bein affensive my mum thinks its reli crap song but she dont care if i listen to it i cant beleive those girls got suspended the school should be closed down. Btw katy Perry looks well pritty here :)

  63. 63

    mini van driving big hair texas women. I bet this was in Dallas.

  64. 64

    omg, that is so unneccisary !
    btw, i love that dress

  65. 65

    Where in Texas? I'm from Texas and its not conservative where I'm from. Fuckin A we have Mardi Gras here LOL
    Theres a time and place for all but the punishment is way too harsh.

  66. 66

    funny. My little 8 year old neighbor and her friend are belting the song out right now. Hey when I was their age I was between "like a virgin" and "push it". So cute.

  67. Ammie says – reply to this


    I've lived in Texas for 12 years and I've never seen such stupidity. I guess I've been sheltered.

  68. 68

    I've kissed a few girls and I know I like it too

  69. 69

    Kissing other girls is hot

  70. 70

    OK, first of all, that's so stupid! And second, twirl girls?? Do you mean color guard? Cause we do NOT twirl, we spin. And good on the drumline for supporting their guard!

  71. 71

    Well that's just plain ridiculous.

  72. 72

    Getting suspended form football games for IKAG? That's ridiculous. Yep IKAG will never go away! :) The music video for her newest single "Hot N Cold" comes out tomorrow!!

    Lets spread that shit like the black plague.

  73. 73

    STFU stupid people.
    Its just a song. She not singing a song called "GO kiss a girls" so don't trip.
    Its not like her song can make people kiss girls, fkjghslkdfghj

    and if you don't like her then go away,

    shes amazing.

  74. 74

    I think the scary part is that there are twirl girls out there in the world…

  75. 75

    There is nothing irresposible about this song! It's just MUSIC!! God get over yourself…you sad people! Katy Perry is amazing and so is her song! If you don't like it don't listen to it…simple as! DUH!

  76. 76

    Being a fake lesbian is soooo 1995-HELLOOO!!! Jill Sobulels song "I kissed a girl" is MUCH better than this crap.

  77. 77

    People are so weird, it's just a freakin' song get over it!

  78. 78

    This is ridiculous. The school should pay a fine to apologize to the two girls for expelling them without no reason. Freedom to speech, guys.

  79. 79

    I cant wait till her 15 minutes of fame is up. I remember a song bout one girl kissing a girl from the late 90's which is better than this.

  80. 80

    Well HEEEE HAWWWW!!!!!!!! What do you expect? Its Texas!! Yeah, also where men are men, and sheep are scared.

  81. 81

    wow katy perry, i've never seen you wear an outfit like that before… oh wait, yes i have. because you have no OTHER STYLE.

  82. 82

    Hmph! A homophobic high school who takes things too seriously: sounds just like MY school!

    "In a sign of solidarity worthy of a cheesy high school flick, the drumline has refused to perform without the twirlers."

    Hell yeah!!!

  83. 83

    Is anyone really surprised by this? I mean if you didn't see that coming than you may be mentally challenged.

  84. 84

    Re: peZZer – Yeah i feel you that song from the '90s was wwaaaaayy better

  85. 85

    First, to the comment that its a "homophobic" song because its aimed at exciting young boys - WHAT AN INTERP..how the hell do you know? IM SO SICK of seeing that accusation I could BARF.

    Homophobia is a FEAR to a ridicuous degree, of homosexuals; you know, the degree where they beat one up or kill one! DONT ABUSE the word, we need to remember what a real homophobe IS as they ARE dangerous..or can be. And what they do IS WRONG.

    But that song? Its a cute as hell song with a catchy beat. And Im with whoever said if the song was "bad", the girls should have been told from the get-go they couldn't use it. RIDICULOUS punishment to apease the parental complaints. TOO LATE. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TEXAS SCHOOL TEACHER/s, PRINCIPAL…YOU didn't stop them when you should have.

    IT*HAS*NO*POWERS*TO*TURN*GIRLS*THAT ARENT*LESBIAN.* PERIOD. Youthful experimentation has gone on for years, as someone else said, that doesnt mean all are actually gay, some are, some aren't.

    DON'T DO THE GUILT thing for gods sakes. That does more damage than any song could.

    School should immediately reinstate those girls and take responsibility for allowing the song use and not hold the girls responsible. Period.

    PERRY DIDNT GET THE HIGH SCHOOLERS SUSPENDED…the school did..shame on them for allowing them to go forward then not stand up to a little heat. Tell the groaners to grow up.

  86. 86

    It's just a song. Honey.
