Katy Perry has admitted the fact artists such as Olivia Rodrigo are referencing her music makes her feel old.
The California Gurls singer, 37, burst onto the scene over a decade ago with her smash hit I Kissed a Girl in 2008 and has produced tune after tune since.
But now the pop sensation has confessed that younger singers using her work on their own titles makes her feel old.
She did however tell Out Magazine she’s “grateful” of the references. Speaking about how it makes her feel, she said: “Honestly, old!
“And grateful that I survived it and grateful I’m not dead in a ditch somewhere. Wow, it’s coming all the way back around.”
She continued: “It feels like yesterday, especially when people are like, ‘Oh my gosh I used to listen to you when I was a kid’ and they’re like full-on adults with kids.”
But she’s glad that her music is still relatable to the younger generation and added: “It means that the music is still resonating. It means that the message still rings true for people. It’s fun! It’s wonderful to have that stamp.”
Teen superstar Olivia Rodrigo is the latest to showcase Katy’s previous lyrics in a song.
In her song titled Brutal, the 18-year-old sings: “Where’s my f***ing teenage dream,” in reference to Katy’s Teenage Dream hit.
Fletcher meanwhile also samples I Kissed a Girl on the tune titled Girls Girls Girls.
In October, mum-of-one Katy revealed that she is wanting to have more kids with partner Orlando Bloom.
The loved-up couple became parents to daughter Daisy Dove last year, a year on from getting engaged.
A source told Closer magazine: “Katy and Orlando have become even stronger since having Daisy and they’re loving life as a family unit, so they don’t want to waste any time before having another one.
Hollywood actor Orlando, 44, is also dad to son Flynn, 10, who he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, and they’re all a happy blended family.
