California Gurls Lyrics

(feat. Snoop Dogg)

[Snoop Dogg:]
Greetings loved ones
Let's take a journey

I know a place
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet and wild
There must be something in the water
Sippin' gin and juice
Laying underneath the...

    I think this song is about how California girls are the best and all... Being a californian and a girl myself( also having been to la like a million times) I have not really traveled much so are california girls like the best or not? I know it was the best state back then but now is it about the girls?

    I wanted to record this song to have but my producer I wanted to do the same thing to make that music and so it’s about being single and have fun with some fun for this record.

    I think "California Gurls"is being sexist to women. It is describing how badly influenced young life is today. It's saying that all women are acting like slutty bad girls and just want to go topless at a beach and have sex with every guy they see. You can't just judge someone like that. But I personally feel that it is sexist and demeaning to women.

    shame she doesn't use her talent to inspire young women to better things, typical sexist flash your bits music video..are women in music that talentless they have to make up for it or is it the male dominated music industry bit or is it vanity/money just a bit of a shame can't think of anything else to do in their music videos.make the world a better place for women don't feed this sexist rubbish.

    Katy is saying that Cali is so much better than anyone from anywhere else is stupid. This song is also sexist to women.

    I think it's about celebrating girls from California, obviously (California Girls, we're unforgettable) (Sun kissed skin so hot we'll melt your Popsicle) (California Girls, we're undeniable, fine, fresh, fierce, we've got it unlocked) and sex (Sex on the beach) (We freak in my jeep) (Kiss her, touch her, squeeze her buns) (All that ass hanging out.)
