Under the unlikely-sounding headline "I’m no bland pop tart", Katy Perry tries to keep up flagging levels of interest in her letscallita career by telling the News Of The World's Fabulous magazine that - and you might want to sit down - she could be a tiny bit lesbianesque:
"I did have a girl crush on my best friend when I was 15 or 16. She was beautiful, like a ballerina, with porcelain skin and cherry lips and I was obsessed with her. And girls do smell much better then boys!
"My first kiss was with a boy and he tried to swallow my head. Maybe it would have been better if I had tried to kiss a girl."
Well, yes - you could then give interviews about how you really did kiss a girl, rather than how you might really have kissed a girl once.
Hang about, though, Katy - you have given interviews talking about how you really kissed a girl, haven't you?
In an interview with OK! magazine, Perry was asked if she really had kissed a girl.
She replied: “Of course. I think I was 19. I kissed a girl and it was great.”
Perhaps, you know, if there was more to Katy Perry, she wouldn't have to keep churning out slightly-contradictory statements about kissing girls. Just a thought.
