Turns out that Katy Perry’s hit 2008 I Kissed A Girl wasn’t so fictional.
‘Truth be told, I did more than that,’ Perry said Saturday (18 March) at the Human Rights Campaign’s gala dinner in Los Angeles.
While accepting HRC’s National Equality Award Perry told the crowd: ‘I’m just a singer-songwriter honestly. I speak my truth and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-sized pop songs.
‘In 2008 when that song came out I knew that I started a conversation that a lot of the world has been curious enough to sing along to.’
‘How was I going to reconcile that with a gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro conversion camps?
‘What I did know was that I was curious and even then I knew sexuality wasn’t as black and white as this dress.’
