Katy Perry wants you to know that she has no problems what-so-ever with Lady Gaga.
The Pop singer caused a stir last week shortly after Lady Gaga’s new “Alejandro” music video premiered when she tweeted: “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” And though Perry, the daughter of church ministers, never mentioned Gaga’s name, the timing of her tweet and the fact that she didn’t respond to the assumptions pretty much confirmed that she was talking about the “Alejandro” video.
But now, Katy is speaking about her comment on Twitter and insists that even though she disagrees with her use of religious imagery (rosary beads, the latex nun outfit, etc.) she respect’s Lady Gaga’s point of view:
“Lately, I’ve just been seeing some things that are kind of… not something I would do, I guess. Like, you know, when Madonna was on the cross (on her most recent world tour).”
The “California Gurls” singer also name dropped her soon-to-be husband Russell Brand and Pop queen Madonna spoke out against people who say she’s being a hypocrite (Her debut single was about kissing a girl and liking it):
“(People say) I’m a very hypocritical person, ‘How do you say that and (sing), I Kissed a Girl? Spirituality and sexuality are two separate things. When you decide to put it into the same subject, it gets interesting for some people. Everyone knows… I’ve said 100 times on my Twitter: ‘I’m one of the biggest Lady GaGa and Madonna and Russell Brand fans.’ Some people have different view points.”
