The Gay Man's Katy Perry — "I Kissed a Boy"


Towleroad reader Landon Bryce whipped up this parody of Katy Perry's hot single "I Kissed a Girl". Of course, Bryce wrote and sang this one for the boys. Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP (not adult, but utilizes vintage gay adult film footage possibly NSFW)...

And for your reference, here's Katy Perry's version:

  1. And unlike empty controversialist Katy Perry (whose song I do, nonetheless, really like listening to...), he actually DOES kiss a boy in the video! So hilarious. Love the progression, too.

  2. Great idea, but bad follow though, where is Jackie Beat when you need her, lol...

  3. I'm disappointed you would give exposure to Katy Perry, whose song tells us that being gay is "wrong" and "not what good girls do." Also, she has a song called "Ur So Gay" in which she uses the word 'gay' as a synonym for stupid. I wish people would stop promoting her asshole-ish, homophobic ways.

  4. Regarding Katy Perry, am I the only one completely turned off by 'shock' homosexuality?

    Ur So Gay
    I Kissed A Girl
    'One of the Boys'

    Its a tired schtick if you ask me.

  5. That's my fave porn video! All American something or other.

  6. Isn't there already a song called "I Kissed a Girl" by Jill Sobule? Can't we just enjoy the songs we already have?

  7. Any song that pisses off the "Concerned Women of America" is fine with me.

  8. Interesting idea (and I know it's a parody so I'll excuse the voice), but did he have to use a cheesy, bad 90s porn (I know, that's redundant) as footage? There were no hot scenes in that entire film (yes I've seen it) and I'd garner that most of the actors were Gay-For-Pay, as evidenced in that tongueless, cold-as-a-witches-tit kiss he did use.

  9. Um, it felt so wrong, it felt so right...she is talking about experimenting. Who cares? Pull the sticks out of your asses and enjoy that it's a fun song to listen to. Not everyone who kisses a girl has to marry one. Get over it.

  10. Um, I don't know Katy's music--not my generation--but Jill Sobule did a brilliant song called "I Kissed a Girl" (and a brilliant album with gender-bending songs like "Karen by Night") which I highly recommend for those unfamiliar with her. Pretty sure GLAAD gave her, and the song, awards...

    And leave those cheesy 90s boys alone! LOL. Those are my peeps! I had blow-dried hair just like that! Ah, the memories...

  11. Oh god.

    It's not even the homophobia anymore, it's the overexposure.

    Just please stop shoving this awful woman down my throat, internet.

  12. The one guy looks a lot like Eric Bana.

  13. Her boyfriend is GAY. He like to make out with boys and he like it.

  14. NIO- She doesn't use the term 'gay' as as synonym for stupid in the song "Ur so Gay". She uses it to describe an ex who happens to portray stereotypical homosexual interests and characteristics. As is he acts like he's gay, but claims he's not. It's a very, very common type of guy. How is that homophobic? Why be so sensitive and look for hate? And not to be an asshole, but by commenting aren't you adding to her exposure?

  15. In the last 12 years, why have there been two songs called I Kissed A Girl by women singers but none called I Kissed A Boy by male singers? What's going on in America? It seems your entertainment industry has a double standard. Why is male-male being shunned by the mainstream in America?

    Maybe it's because gay and bi men have failed to challenge the mainstream's double standard. You've also failed to challenge this phony acceptance (of female-female) based on titillation (of sleazy straight guys).

  16. At least the Weird Al parody should be good :) Also I bet the Gay Pimp will have to out do this.

  17. The issue in the song "Ur So Gay" isn't that she's being directly homophobic, but the fact that it's a blatant reinforcement of wicked values.
    The fact that she says, "You're so gay and you don't even like boys," is essentially hinting at the idea that there's a definitive model of gayness and that in order to be gay you also have to wear "make up" and an "H&M scarf," etc. And the reason that's wrong is because there IS no model for gayness, and the song also perpetuates models of traditional masculinity saying that these actions or items cannot be consistent with a heterosexual lifestyle. The line, "I wish you would just be real with me" is essentially stating, "I wish you'd drop all that gay shit and act like a man."
    If there are any "Concerned Women of America" (as MIKE B. stated)getting offended or angered by this song, they ought to sit back and actually listen, because it's just reaffirming their values.

    I don't even want to get into how the song "I Kissed a Girl" promotes lesbianism-for-the-pleasure-of-men and every other issue it has. The point is, the only really surprising thing about Miss Perry is that she states American values completely explicitly rather than the typical layers of images we find that do it through cultivation. She's popular because even though it would seem like she's going against the mainstream, it's really just a convoluted facade for the fact that she's really only reinforcing it.

  18. Franz Ferdinand has a song Michael about a couple of guys doing what they shouldn't (well shouldn't because they have gfs). As mainstream as it gets. Just not Americans.

  19. Thanks, Andy, for the link, and thanks to anybody who checked out the silly little video.
