Unveiling the Layers: Katy Perry’s ‘Bon Appétit’ Dishes Out a Delectable Tapestry of Symbolism

Hey everyone, the highly anticipated team-up of Katy Perry and Migos has been released, and let me tell you, it’s hotter than a bowl of Texas chili.
The famous singer and the “Bad and Boujee” rappers have dropped “Bon Appétit,” which is Perry’s next single after the politically charged “Chained to the Rhythm.” Trust me, this one won’t be playing at any Hillary Clinton rallies anytime soon.

The singer has recently been exploring the world of cooking, from channeling Food Network host Guy Fieri to trying out unicorn frappuccinos and sharing recipes for the “ultimate cherry pie.” However, her latest track is not about food at all. The cherry pie in the song is actually a metaphor for something else entirely.

As the hip-hop group from Atlanta raps about “sweet potato pie” with abundance, Perry jokes about being as enticing as a buffet and having a penchant for seduction. This playful use of food-related puns and innuendos is scattered throughout the song like a sprinkle of sea salt. Sorry, Ina Garten, this one might not be for your taste buds.

In the song, Perry croons about a romantic candlelit dinner for two, where taking your time and even eating with your hands is completely fine as she plays the role of the delectable dish on the menu. The steamy lyrics leave little to the imagination.

Perry is set to bring this saucy track, “Bon Appétit,” which is the second single from her upcoming album, to life on the season finale of
Saturday Night Live
on May 20. Fans can also anticipate an accompanying music video that is sure to be as tantalizing as the song itself.
