In an interview with the Rumpus, Sobule spoke frankly about her thoughts on the song, citing specifically that while Perry claims she came up with it in a dream, that it was actually conceived of by a crack team of professional writers. And that Perry was signed by the same guy that signed Sobule in 1995.
"When Katy Perry's version came out I started getting tons of inquiries about what I thought," Sobule said. "Some folks (and protective friends) were angry, and wondered why she took my title and made it into this kind of 'Girls Gone Wild' thing. Others, including my mother, were excited because they thought I would somehow make some money out of it. Unfortunately you can't copyright a title ... bummer."
But Sobule sets the record straight in a rare unfiltered moment, speaking honestly about her feelings regarding what went down. After all, Perry is now flooded with fame and fortune while Sobule's career dictates that she needs to find new, interesting ways to forge her career path. "If I really think about it, there were a few jealous and pissed off moments," she said. "So here goes, for the first time in an interview: f--- you Katy Perry, you f---ing stupid, maybe 'not good for the gays,' title thieving, haven't heard much else, so not quite sure if you're talented, f---ing little slut. God that felt good."
We bet it did, Jill.
