You Decide: Did Katy Perry Insult Beyonce?


Katy Perry is no stranger to speaking her mind, but with tact. However, in a recent interview, the singer may have taken things a bit far.

While discussing her upcoming duet with her BFF Rihanna, Katy referenced a great duet & one that was a bit underwhelming, stating that she wanted her collaboration with Riri to be  great.

Specifically, Perry said she knows just what she doesn’t want the song to sound like. “I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,'” she said of a classic female empowerment tune from 1985. “Not ‘Beautiful Liar.'”

“Beautiful Liar” would be Beyonce’s smash 2007 collaboration with Shakira, which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

She continued: “How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.”

Do you think Katy Perry intended to make a subtle dig at Beyonce & Shakira?

    Although I don't care for Beautiful Liar, her comments were unnecessary. She should just do her collab with Rihanna & sit down.
