Katy Perry: I kissed a girl and I liked it

By now, you’ve most likely heard of Katy Perry or for some, already have her in your iPod (yikes!). Her recently released single, “I kissed a girl” continues to be one of the top downloaded songs on iTunes. While the song does offer a great beat and a catchy tune, the lyrics – on the other hand – are simply messed up! Here’s a sample of the chorus:

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Perry is being touted as “The next big thing” by Blender Magazine and “One to watch” by Teen People. But it’s interesting to note that she grew up as a pastor’s daughter, and even released a self titled gospel album just seven years ago.

What are your thoughts regarding her newly released single, “I kissed a girl?” Or even about Perry’s overall “eye candy” image she is currently promoting?
