Katy Perry's first hit song was "I Kissed a Girl," but until now, she's denied that any girl-on-girl action actually ever took place.
At the time the song came out, Perry — who'd previously been a Christian pop singer — initially denied the song was based on anything that'd happened in real life.
But on Saturday, Perry accepted the National Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign at a gala dinner in Los Angeles and revealed the song was just the tip of the sexuality iceberg for her.
"I speak my truths, and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-size pop songs. For instance, 'I kissed a girl and I liked it.' Truth be told, I did more than that," she told the audience.
"How was I going to reconcile that with a gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro-conversion camps? What I did know was I was curious, and even then I knew sexuality wasn't ... black and white."
Perry previously angered many in the gay community when she released her follow-up to "I Kissed a Girl," the song "Ur So Gay" in 2008.
She credits her music career with helping her break out of her "bubble."
