Katy Perry, ‘N—-s in Paris’ Cover: Pop Star Takes on Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Hit
As reported by AOL Music, Katy Perry hit the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge stage to perform her version of rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘Watch the Throne’ hit ‘N—-s in Paris.’ Bold move, Katy, bold move.
The bubbly pop star rocked an off-kilter Yankees fitted, à la Jay, and prefaced the performance by saying, “This is about to get real embarrassing.” She replaced explicative-packed lyrics from the original club hit like, “That s–t cray” with, “That’s so cray,” and the ever-present “n—-s” with “ninjas.”
Katy’s makeover of the hip-hop anthem would not be complete if she didn’t throw Hova’s diamond up in the air — the rapper’s signature hand gesture.
At the end of the rapped/sung performance, the BBC Radio 1 host nicknamed Katy “K-Pez.” We’re not quite sure if that really has a ring to it, but check out Katy’s version of ‘N—-s in Paris’ and let us know what you think of the unlikely cover via Twitter @theboombox!
