Katy Perry blasts record label
Katy Perry thinks the people working for her record label are "idiots".
The 'California Gurls' singer - who shot to fame after scoring a worldwide number one hit with 'I Kissed A Girl' - revealed her record company didn't take kindly to a track on her new album 'Teenage Dream' entitled 'Peacock'.
She explained: "They were all a bit worried about the word 'c**k' and it gave me deja vu because they did the exact same thing with 'I Kissed A Girl'. They said, 'We don't see it as a single; we don't want it on the album'. And I was like, 'You guys are idiots'.
"I always try and make a lasting impression and I work very hard. My father has a saying, 'You can't be a flash in the pan'. This record is important to me because it will prove that my last album 'One Of The Boys' wasn't just luck."
The outspoken singer - who got engaged to British comedian Russell Brand in December following a three-month whirlwind romance - also explained one song on the new album entitled 'Firework' was inspired by her fiance.
She told Glamour magazine: "He showed me a passage from 'On The Road' by Jack Kerouac and he said that this is what I am. It was something like, 'I want to be around people that are buzzing and fizzing and never say a commonplace thing and shoot across the sky and make everybody go ah'. So that's become my life statement."Posted on 14 Aug 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
