Footage has popped up of Katy Perry doing a cover of the Watch The Throne track in the UK for BBC Radio 1.

With a Yankees cap perched on her blue hair, Perry and her band bop through an acoustic version of the song, which fans might recall contains many words that she just can’t say on television (and some that she probably can’t get away with saying as a white woman).

So have a look at the bowdlerised ‘[Ninjas] In Paris’ and try to spot all of the replacements. That “so” cray.
