News: Katy Perry in hot water over “Ni**as In Paris” performance on BBC

Katy Perry was a guest on BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge earlier this morning, and the controversial pop star may have stepped one toe too far over the line. Perry performed a cover of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as in Paris,” changing the racial slur to “Ninjas” for the broadcast. Even though she technically averted the word, should a kitschy substitute be considered appropriate enough to air? Watch the video below.
