Katy Perry Rides Again With Her “Bullet” Demo

Idolator Staff / January 2, 2012

While divorceé Katy Perry probably isn’t starting 2012 quite the we she’d hoped, her fans may be excited to finally hear her vocal on the twangy “Bullet”, the song she co-wrote for country pop upstart Jessie James. (We assume she did insist it be spun at her cowgirl-themed birthday party, but other than that, this is the first time it’s been heard). While there’s zero dispute that the song is James’, you have to stroke your chin about how divorce papers can be followed so closely by a leaked Katy Perry demo with the lyrics: “I’m a bullet and I’m headed straight for your heart / It’s gonna leave a mark.” Listen below.

Should Perry have kept this one for herself? (Or is she better off surpassing Michael Jackson’s record with that “The One That Got Away” remix? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.
