19:49 GMT, 19 March 2012
She rose to fame welcoming controversy with track I Kissed A Girl, showing off her wildside while shunning her good girl Christian upbringing.
But Katy Perry is clearly trying to avoid outrage at the moment as she purposefully changed the words to a song cover earlier today to ensure she didn't offend her fans.
The pop star sang a rendition of Jay-Z and Kanye West's song N**gas in Paris while recording a session on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Avoiding outrage: Katy Perry sang Jay-Z and Kanye West's song N**as in Paris during BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge earlier today with the altered lyrics
But instead of singing the track word for word, Katy ensured she changed the lyrics to 'Ninjas in Paris' for the mid-morning appearance.
As she geared up for the show, hosted by Fearne Cotton, the singer was clearly excited and warned her online devotees on Twitter she would be showing off a different side to herself.
She wrote: 'ISH is gonna get CRAY on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge starting @ 10am w/ @fearnecotton! Gonna show u a different side…I start singing @ 12!'
Stellar performance: The pop star has previously welcomed controversy but opted to use the word Ninjas throughout the track instead
But while she's usually altering her image to cause more attention and controversy, this time she opted for more of a good girl one.
And the 27-year-old enjoyed the session so much, she wrote to Fearne afterwards: 'That was so fun. Can we do it again soon #radio1livelounge #livinglive.'
But while she avoided uproar with her performance, Katy ensured her appearance caused a stir as she walked into the Radio 1 building earlier in the morning.

For her stage shows, Perry is known for putting on a fabulous performance – with her costumes and make-up all adding to the effect.
But the singer appeared to have decided to try out her stage look during the day, as she arrived for the interview with a full face of make-up which looked unsuitable for the daytime.
Katy appeared to have caked on heavy foundation and concealer, teamed with heavy eyeliner, eyeshadow and fake lashes as she arrived at the studios.

Katy has been working hard promoting her latest single Part Of Me throughout the world, and her visit to Radio 1 was just the latest.
Talking to Chris Moyles about her England trip, Katy said she stays grounded because she always had her friends to accompany her on trips abroad.
She said: 'I bring my friends with me
everywhere. That's my favourite luxury to have. They are so solid and
centred and don't give a c*** about the hubbub that goes on.
'I don't have fast friends. I don't
have a lot of those. I'm guarded for all the right reasons. People want
to be your mate, your chum, but they have to earn it with me.'
Katy also added that she loves her
British 'Katy Cats', saying: 'I love the people of England, they're so
lovely, they care, they mean well.
'Maybe they talk c*** behind your back, but they're so sweet to your face.'
Katy then stayed on to record her Live Lounge session.
While the pop star is doing her best to promote her solo material at the moment, it was recently reported that she is planning to team up with best friend Rihanna on a new track.
Rihanna was quoted as telling Theglobalgrind.com: 'We have been working on this for years. We still are trying to make a song together. She is one of my favorite musicians, as well as one of my favorite people in the industry.
'Katy is very uncalculated, very sure of herself, and that's something very rare in this industry to find. The song will probably come out in a while. I won't say that it's happening right now, but it's going to happen.'
