Katy Perry Don’t Want None; Singer Shuts Down Beyonce ‘Diss’ Rumors

March 22, 2012  |  

Katy Perry wants the media to stop startin’ ish—although her actual words were much harsher. Yesterday, a few sites were abuzz because Katy seemed to be throwing a little shade at Beyonce when she talked about her upcoming collaboration with Rihanna on a BBC Radio show.

When Katy talked about the duet, which is barely in the works yet, she said this:

“I was telling her, you know that Eurythmics song with Aretha Franklin, Annie Lennox, ‘Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves’? That’s like the kind of song that I’d want to do instead of, like, ‘Hips Don’t Lie,’ which was still a great song by Shakira and Beyonce. I mean, not ‘Hips Don’t Lie,’ what’s that duet? ‘Beautiful Liar.’ ”

She added, “I loved it, but I definitely want to do something that is just kind of like, so iconic.”

Immediately people took their Beyonce loyalty to a new level and told Katy, essentially, don’t start nothin’ won’t be nothin,’ to which she responded:

“F*** all y’all . . . dat thinks I dissed anyone, puhlez,” she tweeted. “Get a life, cuz it’s not mine! #hoodratcominout. If ya ears are filled with wax it’s time to get a cleanse boo. Anywayz . . . (steps off box).”

I think I’m more concerned with her “hood rat” language than any potential shade, but I don’t think Katy was really trying to diss Beyonce. She just meant she wants a song that’s more classic and less cheesy, although word to the wise, Beyonce stans don’t play that.

What do you think about what Katy said? Was she trying to diss Bey?

    If that’s all of what she said, I don’t see the big deal.   It just sounds like other people trying to start mess between them.


    Um when you compare “beautiful liar” to the songs of Aretha Franklin then yea it is kinda weak but i dont think that is what Katy was saying. I think Beyonce stans need to sit the fkuc down and the shut the fkuc up until Beyonce start paying your bills cuz this “loyalty” is pathetic, immature, and a little disturbing!

    First this is such a childish topic and conversation.  Even if she were “dissin” Beyonce, that would be her business.

  • Pivyque

    No diss. People are tripping. Beautiful liar wasn’t that good. I just like Shakira lol

  • Rachael

    I didn’t see the diss. She said “Beautiful Liar” was still a great song but she wanted to do something stronger and iconic. People are reachin’. LOL@ the “#hoodratcominout” comment.

    I thought it was a diss. She called the beautiful liars song weak which it definitely was. It got blown outta proportion especially since what she said was true.

  • say what?

    that shouldn’t have even been put in proportion, let alone, blown out of… when i read her remark, i thought: “where’s the diss?” oh that’s right, there wasn’t one. stans need to sit down on this one.
