Is Katy Perry now regretting what aired yesterday?
The pop star was tapped to sing the classic "Yesterday" on the CBS special The Beatles: The Night That Changed America—A Grammy Salute, and though she seemingly did the song justice, she rubbed some Fab Four fans the wrong way.
Well, for starters, there's a contingent out there that can't stand when an artist changes the line "suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be" to "I'm not half the girl I used to be"—a change-up that happens pretty much every time a woman covers the Lennon-McCartney classic.
"Seriously pissed off that Katy Perry changed the lyrics to Yesterday," tweeted @homozarry. "It's disrespectful to pay a tribute and change their lyrics."
