“Everybody was holding their drinks in the air and dancing, and I thought, ‘We’re not in New York, we’re in Los Angeles! What about California? What about all the homies, the gin and juice, the swaying palm trees, the sun-kissed skin 24-7?’” Katy said. “I decided that we needed to make a response. I want people to want to book a ticket to California the first time they hear it!”
