One teen's take on kissing Katy Perry.

Jenna Buhmann is enjoying her 15 minutes of fame.

The 16-year-old got the surprise of her life when, during the Katy Perry concert on the Washington leg of the Warped Tour, she got smooched by Katy herself.

Over the past few months, the 23-year-old pop star has stirred controversy among religious groups with her song "I Kissed a Girl," but Buhmann, a self-proclaimed lesbian, didn't mind one bit.

We dished with Jenna about the kiss heard 'round the world.

ML: You must have been shocked when Katy kissed you--how did it happen?

JB: I was just standing in the crowd and she suddenly looked at me for maybe 15 seconds. We shared a long and intense moment and then she let go of her bodyguard and grabbed my arm. The crowd started pushing me toward her and she puckered her lips. I grabbed the back of her head and we kissed. The kiss only lasted for about four seconds--no tongue, unfortunately!

ML: What do you and your friends think about all the controversy surrounding the song?

JB: I don't think it's a big deal because I've been openly gay since I was in seventh grade. However, lots of religious groups don't like the message she is spreading. But in this day and age, girls can kiss each other and it doesn't necessarily mean they're gay. Women are just more affectionate with each other than men are.

ML: Katy's mother has allegedly gone on record saying she hates her daughter's song because it promotes homosexuality and sends a 'disgusting' message. What does your own mom think?

JB: My mom thinks it's awesome! She says everyone has his or her 15 minutes of fame and this is mine. She doesn't have any problem with homosexuality. However, I think Katy's mom's dislike of the song is just a media scam. I'm a member of the Katy Perry forum and everyone believes her mom is supportive. The entire backlash is just for publicity.

ML: You're underage! Should Katy have asked for your I.D. before kissing you?

JB: No way! I would have kissed her no matter what. And I'm glad I did--I like typing my name in the Google search engine and seeing the results. I don't think my fame will last long, but it's fun in the meantime!

ML: OK, we gotta ask--was Katy wearing red cherry Chapstick?

JB: No--but I was! It was a total coincidence. I'm obsessed with lip balm and had just bought a new tube of cherry red Chapstick and had put it on right before the kiss.

Tell us--would you be upset if your daughter kissed a girl?

next: Merci Beau Cocktail

I would not be upset if my daughter kissed a girl and I certainly would not be upset if she liked it! I think it’s very important for young adults to experiment to figure out who they are and what they prefer before they just deal with the first mate they have whether they’re happy or not. Then they feel forced to make things work with that person based on what our “christian society” thinks. Sexuality is very important and it’s best to find out at a younger age than to be “confused” and promiscuous later in life.

I would be very upset if she was a minor kissed by an ADULT.

Not if she was lesbian .. the issue for me would be adult on a minor.

i just dont see how yo ucan think people being gay is going against morals…..most of the time it isn’t even their choice
let them like who they like

just sayin' for crying out loud July 17, 2009, 7:12 PM

If she is gay, lesbian or whatever, let her be because God made her that way, it’s not that im destroying God’s image, but if its God’s plan for her, then let her be and let her go.

Omg, Lisa M. Get your head out of your A**! I firmly believe god makes people how they are. So how can it be wrong or immoral for people to be homosexual? It’s “christians” like Lisa who are destroying our society by hate-mongering and fostering closed-mindedness. Being homosexual is just as normal as being heterosexual. We need to start focusing on bringing ALL people together, not pushing everyone apart over minor differences!
