i remember back in the myspace days seeing IKAG on one of my friends' pages..and always thinking "damn that katy perry has some major guts!" haha cuz i figured that song was a bit controversial lol i personally thought it kicked a$$ haha but i knew some older people wouldnt care for it and it would get a lot of attention from the media,good and bad lol i knew it would be a song that would either jump start a career or have it go no where,SO glad it was bigger than ever though!haha
i also remember my first year of college (that same year,late 2008) i got into a friends car and she had some music playing,but i didnt recognize the song (it was WUIV)and i asked her who it was and she said it was katy as she handed me the OOTB album and i was like "ohhh!the girl who sings IKAG!"
haha and i remember that particular drive was a long one and we were stuck in traffic for quite some time and we most likely listened to the whole album or at least most of it lol back then i didnt automatically become a katy cat but i did like her songs
also,later that year in december..that same friend invited me and 2 other friends to go to jingle ball with her.back then jingle ball was a lot smaller of a thing,so there were a lot less acts then they have now and they were usually brand new or not very popular artists lol and katy was on the line up!and i was also just a couple rows from the front!it was a great show..funny thing is,those all 3 of those stories (and some others)completely disappeared from my memory until i became a katy cat!idk what it was,but after becoming a katycat,all these random and basically pointless memories(at the time),came rushing back..funny how things work out
