Let's just put it out there. Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" is a bit problematic even under the catchy disguise of Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco production. Thankfully, the pop star understands that her smash hit doesn't particularly fit into the current landscape as it includes several stereotypes that just come off tone-deaf.
As the cover girl for Glamour's March issue, the pop titan took a trip down memory lane to revisit the 2008 hit, which is slowly approaching its 10-year anniversary in April. "We've really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years," the American Idol judge 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. Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it."
Perry went on to admit that truth for anyone can change within time, saying, "Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What's true for you can evolve."
