We all know from her 2008 smash hit that Katy Perry kissed a girl and like it, but
apparently she “did more than that”.
The 32 year old singer was being honored at the Human Rights Campaign Gala
Dinner in Los Angeles this Saturday night and while accepting her award, she
talked about her sexuality referring her #1 song I Kissed a Girl.
“Truth be told, I did more than that,” Katy told the audience during the
acceptance speech for her National Quality Award, which she received about her
work for the LGBTQ community and for being an advocate for their rights.
The ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ singer confessed to the audience at the Gala that
back then she knew she was “curious” and that sexuality is not as black and
white as this dress (referring the dress she was wearing).
“…But in 2008, when that song came out, I knew that I started a conversation,
and a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along, too”, She continued.
Perry then talked about her religious family that also wanted her to be religious,
so she spent much of adolescence trying to “pray the gay away” at Jesus camp.
She dedicated the award to her manager Bradford Cobb and teared up while
doing so. The 32 year old pop star ended the speech by asking “equality and
justice for all”.
