Katy Perry blasts record label

'California Gurls' singer Katy Perry has blasted her record company for being ''idiots'' and not wanting her to release any controversial songs as singles.
Great deals on musical instruments

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."
