I Kissed a Girl

American classic rock songs are often known for having hidden meanings behind their lyrics. This has become a special attraction with the trend of becoming less popular in the new music era. Like when fans discovered the meaning behind Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”. Some of them were taken aback while others saw it coming due to the singer’s premature attitude.

The surprising hidden meaning of Cherry Chapstick in Katy Perry‘s I Kissed a Girl is finally reveals

“I Kissed a Girl” is one of the songs from Katy Perry’s 2008 album. The song and the One of the Boys Lagu are one of her favorite hits. However, cherry chapstick does mean lip balm in the song.

Why do fans think ‘Cherry ChapStick’ in the song I Kissed a Girl has a different meaning?

Well, because in the popular game “Just Dance”, the song “I Kissed a Girl” is included in the featured song category. But strangely, the line “Cherry ChapStick” sounded.

So, it makes people start to think why the developers are censoring a harmless phrase like lip balm.

At first, the term ‘Cherry Chapstick’ was thought to be a reference to Katy Perry kissing another girl and tasting the cherry chapstick she was about to wear before. However, according to a report from Joyscribe, the term refers to the genitals of other girls.

The lyrics of the song seem to bring listeners to the experience of the singer herself. She told about her experience while partying with friends at night with an unusual meeting. Katy Perry refers to “boyfriend” in the song, which hints at her dominant heterosexual preference. However, she then carries on by saying that she kissed a girl and that she liked her. She repeated it more than once throughout the three-minute song.

I kissed a girl  ( Lyrics )   –  Katy Perry

This was never the way I planned

Not my intention

I got so brave, drink in hand

Lost my discretion

It’s not what I’m used to

Just wanna try you on

I’m curious for you

Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it

The taste of her cherry chapstick

I kissed a girl just to try it

I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong

It felt so right

Don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it

I liked it

No, I don’t even know your name

It doesn’t matter

You’re my experimental game

Just human nature

It’s not what, good girls do

Not how they should behave

My head gets so confused

Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it

The taste of her cherry chapstick

I kissed a girl just to try it

I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong

It felt so right

Don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it

I liked it

Us girls we are so magical

Soft skin, red lips, so kissable

Hard to resist so touchable

Too good to deny it

Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

I kissed a girl and I liked it

The taste of her cherry chapstick

I kissed a girl just to try it

I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong

It felt so right

Don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it

I liked it

How did fans find out what it meant so many years after the song was released?

The song was once performed on a show called ‘Just Dance’. According to US media reports, when the song is played the lyric “cherry chapstick” sounds, but the rest of the song’s lyrics are left untouched. Because of this, fans began to suspect another part of the hidden meaning and develop an interpretation.

36-year-old Katy Perry was known for her courageous and outspoken way of writing songs. She is often also described as a singer who was ahead of her time.

Has Katy Perry ever raised her voice about what it means?

It’s difficult to imagine Perry writing the same song he did 10 years ago.

Perry did once talk about the meaning of the song in an interview with Glamor. She expressed regret about the song.

She told the magazine, “If I had to write that song again, I would probably edit it. Lyrically, it has some stereotypes in it. Your mind has changed so much in 10 years.”

Apart from the success of the song, it proved controversial. Singer Beth Ditto called it “offensive to gay culture”.
