One of the greatest mysteries of the 21st century may have just been solved. Miley Cyrus revealed that Katy Perry’s first hit, ‘I Kissed a Girl’, is about her! Wait; what? Watch Miley explain in this shocking clip!
To say this is a surprise is an understatement. We’ve all wondered at one point who Katy Perry, 32, was talking about in her infectious first hit, “I Kissed a Girl”. But did anyone peg the subject to be good friend Miley Cyrus? Miley revealed the big stunner in a May 16 interview with WKTU radio’s “Cubby and Carolina” show, saying that she found out the crazy news after hearing Katy say it in an interview! How that slipped under the radar is beyond us.
“Next year Katy Perry and I will be friends for 10 years,” Miley told WKTU. “That’s so long for an LA friendship. When she wrote ‘I Kissed A Girl’ I was on set for the Hannah Montana movie and she asked me to go to the VMAs with her. That’s when my whole VMA controversy started! My mom went into the limo with me and Katy Perry because she was nervous. That’s how we met and we just stayed friends.
“When she came out with ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio,” Cyrus recalled. “They said, ‘Who did you write that about?’ She said me! And I was on a four wheeler, actually — my dad had this four wheeler, this is how hillbilly we are, we had a radio attached to the four wheeler — and I heard it and I screamed, and started freaking out.”
Yeah, we would freak out, too! Katy was definitely being tongue in cheek about the subject of her debut 2008 song, considering Miley was 15 years old and the star of a Disney show at the time! Miley’s confession was after the hosts asked her which pop star she admired the most. She immediately said Katy. It’s not just because she’s her friend (and made that awesome dedication). She also admires her “because of her political work. She was like the first one to go campaign for Hillary [Clinton] and I followed that. She used her voice for pop culture and politics and I loved it.”
