Katty Perry denies competition with Lily AllenAugust 11th, 2008 - 1:52 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 11 (IANS) British singer Lily Allen seems to be so intimidated by upcoming US crooner Katty Perry’s popularity that she has shelved her new album release. But Perry played down the comparisons with Allen and the reported battle.
Thesun.co.uk reports her as saying: “I think I sound different to her. She’s (Allen) in a league of her own.”
Both Allen and Perry’s new albums, “Stuck On The Naughty Step” and “One Of The Boys” respectively, were set to be released in Britain soon.
Perry shot to fame with her song “I Kissed a Girl”. The lyrics include, “I kissed a girl and I liked it… the taste of her cherry chapstick”. Some fans approached Perry taking the lyrics literally.
She said: “The problem is girls now keep asking for a kiss. After every gig on my tour, I stay behind to do an autograph signing. But about a dozen women will want a snog. I just sweetly say, ‘No, thank you’. If I kissed everybody who asked, I’d probably go away with something I don’t really want!”
She added: “I’m not a lesbian, I love men. As for kissing a girl, I’m holding out for Megan Fox.”
