. . . and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
There's been points where I've been surprised to be embarrassed by this fact, don't get me wrong. Once, I was out for a drunken dinner with a bunch of gals and the subject came up . . . and it turned out that I was the only girl out of about the ten present who HADN'T at some point snogged another female. I almost shrunk in my chair to find this out.
One of my other friends, one of the most supremely confident girls you would ever meet, has told me she has kissed other girls on many occasion. It is always aimed to titilate men. She admits this freely.
Despite the fact I have never snogged another girl, I have no desire to.
Do you think I don't realise a ton of guys have just clicked back off my blog - having stumbled upon it by accident, i assume (did you type "girls snogging" into google.com by any chance??? - at these words? I don't particularly care. I don't GET the whole idea of why girls snogging turns guys on.
Why am I thinking about this? It's been on my mind for the last few days since I heard this song for the first time.
It just seems like such a blatant marketing ploy to me. Like Madonna and Britney's infamous snog at some award show several years back when Britney was still sane (perhaps THAT was the beginning of her downfall?) Or the russian underage lesbians T.A.T.U. who turned out to not be lesbians after all - now THERE was a surprise . . . not.
Let's look at the facts. The girl in question (who is undoubtedly hot - and I hope that doesn't make you think I want to kiss her - cos I don't) is dancing around in tiny little outfits with a bunch of other girls. But despite a lot of eyeing up, skimpy costumes, PILLOW FIGHTING (hmm - cliche or what?) and saucy lyrics, nothing much is happening. Hence the titilation occurs. Obviously music videos cannot provide full-on porn (or is there actually a music channel for that??? with my freeview all I get is The Hits and TMF so perhaps I'm uneducated . . .) but it seems to me they are just asking people to "use their imagination".
In addition, it seems pretty clear from youtube comments, wikipedia info etc that Katy Perry is in fact dating the dude from Gym Class Heroes. So she ain't THAT confused about her sexuality. In fact, did she even WRITE the song? Bear with me, just gonna try and find out . . .
Well apparently she HELPED with it, but it had quite a few other co-writers as well. Now THERE'S a surprise.
(That being said, I think she looks like the kind of girl who would be more than willing to experiment. But perhaps she's just good at putting on an act.)
What makes the whole thing even worse though???
I actually really like the song.
Grrr, I really annoy myself sometimes...
