Katy Perry says she would probably rewrite the lyrics of her first hit song if it came out now.
Branded as LGBTQ friendly when released in 2008, the 33-year-old singer told Glamour that things have changed in the past decade.
“We’ve really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years,” she told the magazine. “We’ve come a long way. Bisexuality wasn’t as talked about back then, or any type of fluidity. If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it,” Perry continued, “lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes on it. Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What’s true for you can evolve.”
The singer who covers the magazine’s March issue also opened up about her next big thing — focusing on her personal life.
“I’m preparing to do a big soul overhaul very soon that I’m nervous about,” she revealed. “I want to emotionally elevate myself. I’m about to go heavy into that emotional process, and I’m nervous, but I don’t think I have a choice anymore.”
Perhaps “I Kissed a Girl” 10-year anniversary in April will serve as an opportunity for Perry to rerecord the song with the revised lyrics.
