Katy Perry is catapulting to another level of superstardom with Prism, but it all started with a sweet little diddy about bisexuality.
Can you believe it's been FIVE years since Katy's vocals smashed the airwaves with I Kissed A Girl??!
In a sit down with W Magazine, the pop princess reflected:
"It was a bit radical to sing about bisexuality, but it was a topic that was on the tip of everybody’s tongue. And even though it was 'I kissed a girl, and I liked it, and that’s what I like to do sometimes,' I sang it with a wink. It may be a fun little pop song, but sometimes fun little pop songs most clearly express the zeitgeist."
But who was the girl she went bi-curious for??
"[S]he was that friend, the one that you idolize and maybe even have a weird obsession-slash-crush on. We were standing on her bed, wearing her clothes — because her clothes were cooler — and she put on 'Killer Queen.' My world froze. It was a very cinematic feeling, and it opened up this lyrical world."
Oooohhh sounds so spontaneous and seXXXy, just like our gurl!
After all, what is the point of diving into the pool of fame if you aren't going to make a splash??!
