Katy Perry
'Ni**as in Paris' on BBC Radio 1
Matthew Perpetua

Katy Perry stopped by BBC's Radio 1 studio this morning and took part in their tradition of having visiting artists perform covers by offering her own version of Jay-Z and Kanye West's hit "Ni**as in Paris." As you can imagine, Perry's version is significantly altered on a lyrical level, with all of the swears swapped out for softer phrases and the N-word replaced by "ninjas." Though she cannot come close to Ye and Hov's dizzying levels of swag, she does a pretty decent job with it, at least in the sense that it would be a jaw-dropping performance in a karaoke bar.
