It’s only a matter of time before we hear Sykes, Belling, and many other conservatives simply loose their cool over the newest hit in music – – a song about a girl wanting to kiss…a GIRL!

“I Kissed A Girl,” by Katy Perry, is jumping up to #1 in the Billboard US Charts. UK newspaper The Guardian has the scoop:

Pop stars reinventing themselves is not a new phenomenon. David Bowie relaunched himself as Ziggy Stardust and then became the Thin White Duke. Kylie Minogue was the girl next door who suddenly acquired a taste for black basques. But few transformations have been as total as the one that has taken Katy Perry to the top of the US singles charts.

Perry, 23, began her career with a collection of Christian gospel songs. Her parents are both Protestant pastors, so many of her former fans are astonished to find her topping the charts now with a single celebrating the pleasures of a lesbian kiss.

‘I Kissed a Girl’ is poised to be the hit of the American summer and is the 1,000th number one since Bill Haley and His Comets’ shocked the music business with ‘Rock Around the Clock’ in 1955. The lyrics are mild enough: ‘I kissed a girl/and 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.’

Perry says her parents, who once banned rock music from the home, are now supportive of her despite the new musical direction. ‘Well, I’m not strung out on crack and doing centrefolds,’ she said last week. This is not the singer’s first foray into edgy areas of sexuality. Perry’s last single, ‘Ur So Gay’, poured scorn on effeminate metrosexual males and, in particular, on Perry’s ex-boyfriend who ‘wore more make-up’ than she did. ‘I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf,’ was one of the more memorable lines.

Perry’s background has led to consternation from the Evangelical Christian community. ‘What a sad picture of a lost child who has been swept away by the carnal pleasures of the world,’ reads one entry on the Christian website Planetwisdom.com. ‘We need to be lifting this gal up in prayer. While we’re at it, let’s toss up a prayer for her parents, too. Not to mention the countless young girls who will buy into this lesbian chic message.’

Talk about being a rebel in the family…an Envangelical Christian promoting lesbian behavior, and then saying after kissing the girl, “It felt so right.” I’m sure her parents are “pleased” but boiling in secret. No need to panic, for anyone that’s concerned about the theme will soon have Rush, Mark, Charlie, and the rest of talk radio scorning any parent who let’s their child listen to the tune.

    I’m just the tiniest bit huffy on behalf of Jill Sobule, myself. 😉

    I’ve heard the song, and sure, it’s a little bit edgy, but it’s not as bad as some of the stuff I’ve heard from Britney Spears and her ilk.

  3. Keith Schmitz says:

    Didn’t Belling’s date once say that after kissing him?

  4. I really like the song 🙂 Keith- I can confirm that…. Belling hit on one of my friends at Victor’s one night and despite the cold shoulder and multiple attempts to shake him he still tried to follow her home.

  5. Michael J. Cheaney says:

    Wow are you behind the curve on this one. Sykes was actually talking about this in the middle of June.

    And he really didn’t have anything negative to say about the song, other than to say he really didn’t care one way or the other about the song.

    I must say that my 10 year old nephew really likes the song though.

  6. Greg says:

    Aw, shucks!

    Goes to show how much I listen to Sykes…how embarrassing!

    Well, I’m glad to see some conservation going on here.

  7. Zachary says:

    I try not to listen to conservative talk radio, because I have to listen to bullshit all day at my job; I don’t want to listen to it on the radio too.

  8. John Carlson says:

    Didn’t Keith Schmitz’s boyfriend say this after Keith lip-locked him?

  9. John Carlson says:

    ZACHARY does not listen to conservative radio because there are no liberal stations with anything to say!

  10. Zach W says:

    John, that made no sense.
