Katy Perry Won't Change Lyrics to 'Peacock'
Katy Perry refused to bow to pressure from record label chiefs to change the risque lyrics of an upcoming album track - because her instinct has always proved right. The singer releases "Teenage Dream" later this month, and one song - "Peacock" - caused worry among bosses at her label, Capitol Records, over its smutty words.
But Perry was adamant she wouldn't alter the offending lyric - because the success of her hit track "I Kissed a Girl" in 2008 proved she should stand her ground against music executives. She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "They were all a bit worried about the word 'c**k' (in Peacock) and it gave me deja vu because I 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'."
