It was over 30 years ago that Carole Pope's band, Rough Trade, openly sang about lesbian attraction in their hit "High School Confidential" -- a song that was pretty groundbreaking and unusual for its day. So what did Carole think when she heard Katy Perry's hit, "I Kissed a Girl?" And what are the major differences between the two songs? In this clip, Carole offers, well, a pretty honest opinion.
Carole Pope is in the red chair tonight along with actor Enrico Colantoni.
Quotes from this clip:
"I was like, 'Oh, that's okay.' And then I saw Katy Perry sing live on TV and I was like, 'Uh oh. Wah wah."
"I'm putting this out there, and people will get it or they won't get it. I think that was the beauty of Rough Trade -- the way people interpreted our music, or got angry about it, or stalked me, or dressed like me....there were so many reactions to what we were doing because nobody else was doing it."
