This Britney Spears Song Has Been About Katy Perry The Whole Time
Here is something I learned today: There is a Britney Spears song about Katy Perry. No, this is not a “Bad Blood” situation. It is a “babely bod” situation. (It will all make sense in a second, I promise.) As HelloGiggles pointed out, singer/songwriter/pop genius Bonnie McKee recently tweeted that Perry is the subject of a Spears single. When a fan asked her about “Hold It Against Me” on Wednesday night on twitter, McKee said the 2011 tune, which she co-wrote with Max Martin and Dr. Luke, is about the “Bon Appétit” pop star. “The inspiration for @britneyspears 's song Hold it Against Me was @katyperry's babely bod,” tweeted McKee. “True story.”
Again, I had no idea. But now that this nugget of information is in my life, I will never let it go. I will hold it against me always and forever. No, not like that. Don’t be weird.
“‘Hold It Against Me’ was actually inspired by Katy because I was writing with her at the time and I went in the other room where I was working on Britney in between. She came into the room in some tight, sexy little dress and I jokingly said, ‘Damn, Katy if I told you you had a nice body would you hold it against me?’ I was like, ‘Bingo!’ and I wrote that song.”
One of the Femme Fatale songs happens to reference a conversation McKee had with Perry in between Teenage Dream writing sessions? "Hold It Against Me," you are a delectable parfait of pop music goodness.
Forever a jam.
Thanks for inspiring it, Perry!
