Katy Perry will always be "provocative".
The 'I Kissed A Girl' singer has slammed suggestions she is controversial solely to attract attention, and insists her lyrics are racy because she is a naturally sexual person.
She said: "Some people are dying to be offended by anything. To me, it's not anything besides tongue-in-cheek. But I don't always want to be controversial. I'll always be provocative, but that's different.
"I don't have a censor - my brain and mouth work simultaneously. It may not always be politically correct or agreeable, but I say what I think. And it has served me well so far."
The 24-year-old singer also dismissed claims she is promoting homosexuality, and insists people just need to have fun with pop music and not take it so seriously.
She said: "My songs are just a snapshot of everything I'm going through. Maybe they're a little exaggerated for the sake of telling a really good story. It's not an agenda - I'm not turning the whole world bisexual."
