Katy Perry Won't Change Lyrics to 'Peacock'

August 14, 2010 (3:42 am) GMT
She experienced a deja vu when her record label's executives wanted her to exclude the song from 'Teenage Dream' due to its smutty lyrics.

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 "" 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'."
