''It’s about drunken curiosity, not as some have interpreted it, a call to change sexual orientation. I’m talking about the way girls are really touchy feely and sisterly. Especially when we’re growing up. We’re holding hands, we’re having sleepovers, we’re doing choreographed dance moves in our pajamas, we’re painting each other’s nails and practicing kissing on our arms or maybe practicing kissing on one another. It wasn’t something that we were doing for the sake of anybody else because we were scared of boys.'' - Katy Perry
''My first kiss was with a boy, and he almost swallowed me alive. I wish I had kissed that girl I had the crush on when I was growing up. I would have been much more prepared for my dating life, I think.'' - Katy Perry
''This song is all about exploration and female bonding. There’s just a magical beauty that women hold that can definitely slay men of all kinds. If Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman or Gisele Bündchen walked into the room, everybody would watch.'' - Katy Perry
