I listen to Katy Perry and I like it

It's ironic how I used to think Katy Perry will be a one-hit wonder and disappear into oblivion. And now I just can't stop admiring her spunk. 
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson or Katy Perry is a lovely woman. Not only is she endowed with stunning looks and a peaches-and-cream complexion but her music is inspiring and strikes the right cord with the listeners and fans every time. Only she can get away with something like 'I kissed a girl' and make it sound legitimate without undertones of  lesbianism.

"I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed a girl to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it"

If you think about the situation without any sense of humor then it will feel odd. (in which case there's something seriously wrong with you) So just let it go and think like a normal human being devoid of any prejudices or staunch ideals for once.

"It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight"

Before the official release of the track, it was feared it would create a huge controversy but ultimately it proved to be a ticket to uncharted stardom for Katy. It's the general tone of the song and the lyrics which make it easier for people to identify with it.

'Hot N Cold' was another song which stayed at the top of the charts for quite a while. Sample this :-

"You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes
Yeah, you PMS like a bitch
I would know"

A 'lol' maybe the appropriate reaction to these words. But this song is totally hip and any pop-lover will be addicted to it in no time.

"'Cause you're hot then you're cold
  You're yes then you're no
  You're in then you're out
  You're up and you're down
  You're wrong when it's right 
  It's black and it's white
  We fight, we break up
  We kiss, we make up"

Have a troubled relationship with someone? Yes? Then this is the song for you.
Actually all relationships are somewhat similar. At times they feel right, at times wrong. Without conflicting feelings a relationship cannot be real. And Katy Perry once again hits the right note with this foot-tapping number.

"Someone, call the doctor
Got a case of love bipolar
Stuck on a rollercoaster
Can't get off this ride"

Just the right words to illustrate the pangs of a relationship where one can't let go. Nothing unnecessary or emotionally burgeoning.

Another epic song will be 'You're so gay'. I remember the very first time I came across this song on Youtube, the title cracked me up instantly. Sample the lyrics:-

"I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf
While jacking off listening to Mozart
You bitch and moan about LA
Wishing you were in the rain reading Hemingway
You don’t eat meat
And drive electrical cars
You’re so indie rock it’s almost an art
You need SPF 45 just to stay alive"

Ideal way to curse an ex boyfriend. That is only if he had been a jerk to you :-P

Now before you begin stereotyping Katy as someone who bitches about bad boyfriends and relationships to wanting to kiss girls don't write her off just as yet.

Listen to her 'Who am I living for?' track from 'Teenage Dream'.

"I can feel a phoenix inside of me
As I march alone to a different beat
Slowly swallowing down my fear, yeah yeah

I am ready for the road less traveled
Suiting up for my crowning battle
This test is my own cross to bare
But I will get there

At times her voice sounds a bit coarse and rough around the edges when she is going for the higher notes but somehow it doesn't sound too off. Not everyone can be like Celine Dion or Whitney Houston right?
Other Katy Perry songs which are worth listening to -'Firework', 'California gurls', 'Teenage dream', 'E.T', 'One of the boys' and many more.

So go get yourself a dose of Katy Perry if you haven't already. And this applies to the men too. C'mon it's International Women's Day after all.

P.S: Don't overdose on her. She is married to Russell Brand who pretty much looks and acts like a psycho.
