Jill Sobule: Katy Perry Comments Were In Jest

Jill Sobule is clarifying her comments about Katy Perry in an interview with Therumpus.net, which some reported a profanity laced tirade over Perry’s version of ‘I Kissed a Girl’, when she actually made the remarks in jest. Sobule writes:

It all started with an interview I did for one of my new favorite blog sites: Therumpus.net — a semi-obscure but hopefully growing arts and cultural website. It was one of the more interesting interviews I have ever done, as I was actually asked, engaging questions for a change. However, the interviewer had to ask the annoying yet inevitable “What did I think of the Katy Perry version of “I Kissed a Girl?”

I thought maybe this time I would have fun with it and goof on what many of my fans were hoping to hear over the last year. I prefaced my reply with a wink, and then rambled on with a string of over the top dumb-ass profanities, purposely out of character and completely in jest.

Jill Sobule Comments On Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed A Girl’

Jill Sobule spoke with EW.com about how Katy Perry is enjoying a hit right now with ‘I Kissed a Girl’, a song title that matches her 1995 hit. “I don’t feel precious about the title, but I’ve gotten tons of e-mails from annoyed fans,” she explained. “Some think it’s more of a Girls Gone Wild thing than anything shocking or empowering to true gay feelings.” Sobule added, “Katy Perry’s song is a kind of catchy party song, although I will admit that I do smile when a critique mentions my version in a more favorable light. Is that wrong?” Read more.
