Katy Perry recently talked with Radio 1 about an upcoming collaboration with BFF, Rihanna. Last week, Rihanna said that a duet between the two was inevitable, but it all came down to timing and the right song. Perry echos the same sentiment, explaining, “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet. It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver.”
Perry goes on to that say she would prefer the song be an epic mash-up as opposed to “Beautiful Liar,” by Superstar Beyonce and Latin sensation Shakira, which failed to impress.
“I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,’ not like ‘Beautiful Liar.’ I definitely want to do something that is so iconic.”
Perry continues, “Rihanna’s kind of busy too. We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.”
Hey Katy girl. Prepare your mentions on twitter for a brutal beating. Soon they will look like Justin Bieber on the cover of Complex. Let us pray.
