Rumors of a Perry-Gaga feud began last Tuesday when Perry tweeted that “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” The comment was widely assumed to be an attack on Gaga’s “Alejandro” video which uses religious iconography. In fact, according to Perry, the tweet was “more of a non-specific, general thing. But everybody made it out to be a cat fight. I think people love cat fights. It’s a turn on for people.”
Perry, who was raised as a Christian, also said that she has a problem with what she regards as blasphemous behavior regardless of whether the perpetrator happens to be Gaga, or her own boyfriend, Russell Brand. “The other day he was yelling out the window,” recalled the singer, who is currently riding high with her “California Gurls” track. “He said something a bit off color, kind of blasphemous about the Lord Jesus Christ, and I smacked him for it. It’s just kind of deeply rooted inside of me, and hard to get away from. But everybody knows I am a massive Lady Gaga fan. If you look through my tweets, there will be about ten of them that say that I am obsessed with her.”
Are you happy that Ms. Perry has cleared that up? Disappointed that she and Lady G are not cat fighting? And what do you think of the “Alejandro” video?
