three fold morality

Katy Perry, an American pop singer, has a new hit song.
Lyric except:

I kissed a girl and I liked it
I kissed a girl just to try it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
I kissed a girl and I liked it

Katy explains and wrestles with:
Her intentions
– I got so brave
– never the way I planned
– not what I’m used to

Her curiosity
– caught my attention
– my experimental game
– want to try you

Her desires
– hard to resist
– so kissable
– I liked it

Her conscience
– felt so wrong
– felt so right
– head gets so confused

Her culture
– hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
– don’t mean I’m in love

Katy concludes:
– no big deal
– it’s innocent

Katy banks on:
1 – Desires being right
2 – Conscience being wrong
3 – Culture being accepting

My question is:
How can this three fold test bring any real confidence in deciding morality?

    What interests me more about I Kissed A Girl is not so much the content of the song but the story behind the song. How did a Contemporary Christian recording artist go from singing Gospel music to producing a gay anthem? Does this tell us anything about those producing CCM records? Is this a cry for attention? Is this a shrewd marketing move to grab the attention of a powerful niche market?

    Good point Joel A.
    Its weird to think that there would be a market for rebellious Christian songs!
    But that’s the world we live in
