Katy Perry Calls Record Label ‘Idiots’
She claims they were unhappy with her raunchy lyrics...
Katy Perry has slammed her record label for trying to convince her to make her music more family friendly.
The California Gurls singer claimed Capitol tried to persuade her against including certain tracks on the final tracklisting for her forthcoming album Teenage Dream, for fear they were too controversial.
Katy revealed that the record company weren’t impressed she’d recorded a song called Peacock. "They were all a bit worried about the word 'c**k' and it gave me deja vu because they 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'.
"I always try and make a lasting impression and I work very hard,” she explained. “My father has a saying, 'You can't be a flash in the pan'. This record is important to me because it will prove that my last album One Of The Boys wasn't just luck."
The 25-year-old has just put the finishing touches on her new album and discussed the effort she went to in order to ensure everything was perfect.
"I'm in the studio fighting with them to change the melody or I'm fighting for the best lyric at all times. I think we rewrote Teenage Dream five times for 10 days straight. On the last day, I was so happy to finally get somewhere that we all agreed on."
