Katy Perry’s back and ‘representing’ the West Coast

It’s a great chilled out summer tune, but unfortunately, doesn’t really live up to the epic pop-ness of ‘I Kissed A Girl’ and ‘Hot n Cold’.

Apparently, it’s about representing Caliornia girls (or gurls), and is some sort of response to Jay-Z’s ‘Empire State of Mind’. Perry said in an interview:

“It’s so great that ‘Empire State of Mind’ is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f**k? What about LA? What about California?. It’s been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl’s perspective”
