'I'm preparing myself for having a family': Single Katy Perry says she wants kids in 'near future' but first has to first deal with 'childhood trauma'

Katy Perry is letting go of 'childhood trauma'

"I Kissed a Girl" officially launched Katy Perry's career into the pop stratosphere, but almost 10 years after her breakout hit the singer says she would make some changes to the lyrics. "We've come a long way", she notes.

The 33-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Katheryn Hudson, has sold more than 40 million albums in the last decade and is the first female ever to have five songs from a single album reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, according to Glamour. When she released "I Kissed A Girl", bisexuality was not as widely talked about then as it is now. Now, Perry herself is admitting the song has "a couple of stereotypes". Your mind changes so much in ten years, and you grow so much. Perry also listened to Ramona Rox's acoustic rendition of "I Kissed A Girl", and that was when she commented about the song's lyrics. "What's true for you can evolve". In an interview on 103.5KTU's Cubby and Carolina in the Morning, Cyrus claimed she was the cherry chapstick-wearing subject of the track.

Katy Perry has admitted that she'd rewrite one of her biggest hits if she had the chance.

The sales of that record were underwhelming compared to the highs Perry has previously scaled, and her record label boss Steve Barnett said: "Personally I've learned more from our mistakes than our successes and I believe our artists are in the same category as that".

"My New Year's resolution was to turn my phone off one day a week", she told interviewer and friend Cleo Wade. "The kind of behavior you get from some privileged people - 'oh, I don't realize.' Perhaps she doesn't know any gay people who have suffered verbal or physical abuse", said Czyzselska. Last March, she said that the song was a reflection of a youth spent in "pro-conversion camps". "I heard it and started screaming and freaking out".
