Earlier this week we reported that Katy Perry was interested in doing a collaboration that was “So iconic” with Rihanna. She was quoted as saying, “I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves”, not like [Shakira and Beyonce Knowles‘] “Beautiful Liar””. Immediately, the Internet lit up with stories of the Katy Perry vs. Beyonce beef — but Katy Perry denies the existence of any such conflict. With a biting tone, Katy Tweeted the following in response to the media’s rush to brand her comments as part of some larger animosity:
We think Katy’s anger at the media’s reaction is somewhat justified. She never attacked Bey or Shakira as artists, but rather made a fairly non-emotive, un-embellished comment on their duet, which, in honesty, wasn’t the run away hit it probably should have been. Whatever — it’s clear Katy didn’t mean to stir up as much controversy as she did, and we’re hoping Momma B isn’t too perturbed. We’d hate to have to rule out a Bey-Perry collaboration!
