Katy Perry covers Watch the Throne song

Katy Perry covers Watch the Throne song

Katy Perry could be one of the fans with Watch the Throne tickets for the Jay-Z and Kanye West gigs in the UK and Ireland this year, as she recently showed her support for the act by covering one of their songs.

The I Kissed A Girl singer performed her version of the track N---as in Paris on BBC Radio One 1.

Jay-Z and Kanye West released the song as part of their Watch the Throne album last year, which they are now promoting with an international tour.

For her rendition, Katy Perry replaced the word N---as with 'ninjas' and changed the swearing in the song to less offensive lyrics.

The 27-year-old seemed to know covering the hit was quite a leap for her popstar image, telling the audience: "This is about to get real embarrassing."

Jay-Z and Kanye West are bringing the Watch the Throne tour to London's O2 Arena for five dates in May, before returning in June to play in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham and Sheffield.
