The Beatles held the number one spot for seven weeks with their smash hit "I Want to Hold Your Hand." Forty four years later Katy Perry matched their success with her single “I Kissed a Girl.”
Katy swears that she has never actually gone there. She told Rolling Stone magazine that if she had locked lips with anyone, it probably would have been a certain ballerina.
"When I was growing up, I was enamored with this one friend. She had the most beautiful complexion and skin, and strawberrylike lips."
In the latest issue of Steppin’ Out magazine she claims that the song was written with one of Hollywood’s It girls in mind.
"'I Kissed a Girl' was inspired when I opened up a magazine and I saw a picture of Scarlett Johansson. I was with my boyfriend at the time, and I said to him, 'I’m not going to lie: If Scarlett Johansson walked into the room and wanted to make out with me, I would make out with her. I hope you’re okay with that?'"
If he is like most of the men that I know, he is completely fine with that arrangement however Katy’s parents definitely do not think that is a good idea.
Her mom, Mary Hudson, told the Daily Mail that she hates her daughter's hit for endorsing sinful girl on cherry ChapStick wearing girl action.
"It clearly promotes homosexuality and its message is shameful and disgusting," Mary, an evangelical Christian preacher, says. "Katy knows how I feel. We are a very outspoken family and she knows how disappointed her father and I are. I can't even listen to that song. The first time I heard it I was in total shock. When it comes on the radio I bow my head and pray."
With that kind of praying I'm surprised there is time left to turn on the radio.
