Katy Perry accused by fans of 'an arrestable offence' after 'awkward' lyric

Katy Perry’s coronation performance certainly had fans talking, but quite a few were caught up on an ‘awkward’ lyric that they insist should have been changed for the special event.

The California Girls singer took to the stage on Sunday, May 7, in front of 20,000 members of the public and invited guests filling out the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla, she joined Take That,  Olly Murs, Nicole Scherzinger and Lionel Richie for the Coronation Concert, and gave us all a night to remember.

Having sent us all into hysterics the night before over a few Coronation blunders, losing both her seat and her footing, the 38-year-old had the eyes of the world on her, and she didn’t disappoint.

Apart from one lyric – which some fans weren’t keen on.

Belting out Firework, Katy sung: ‘You just got to ignite the light., and let it shine. Just own the night. Like the Fourth of July.’

Across the pond, Americans celebrate Independence Day, marking the country gaining freedom from the British in 1776.

In the UK we don’t typically celebrate July 4, since it’s obviously the day the US decided to leave the Empire, which is why plenty of viewers took to social media to complain about Katy’s lyrics.

One person wrote: ‘Katy Perry singing about 4th July to the British King is surely an arrestable offence.’

Another penned: ‘Awkward of Katy Perry singing the lyrics “4th of July” at the British King’s Coronation.’

She told the crowd she got to ‘stay in Windsor Castle’ – before joking: ‘No big deal.’
