Hit Record Alert: Katy Did It!
A friend of mine with an unerring sense of what's going to top the charts swears that the next big thing—this summer's "Umbrella," as it were—will be "I Kissed a Girl" by 23-year-old Californian pop rocker Katy Perry. The song has Perry drunkenly smooching a babe and liking it, while hoping her boyfriend doesn't whoop her ass. It's a nice sentiment, certainly better than her last one, "Ur So Gay," which engaged in that awful trend popularized by Kelly Osbourne—the one where the g word is used as an epithet. So check out Perry's song and see it you feel blissfully kissed by her or if it's too gay and she should stick to penises.
