Katy Perry is on the cover of Vanity Fair's June issue, and in the accompanying cover story, she says "I Kissed A Girl," the single which sparked her career, was fact, not fiction.
According to Perry, when the song was released, she avoided discussing it because a few "sleazy journalists" made her uncomfortable.
"I said no, I hadn’t experienced it, even though I had," she says, "because I didn’t like where the guys were taking the interviews.”
And unlike Lady Gaga, for example, Perry had no bigger vision in mind when she made the tune.
"Finally someone was singing about something that existed," she says. "But it really was [meant to be] fun; there was no agenda.”
