Honestly, it was kind of ridiculous to think that they would. The guys know this business well enough to know what's up.
Earlier today, rumors were flying that The Beach Boys were suing Katy Perry over her widely successful song California Gurls.
Obviously, you can see why there was some hullaballoo, but Mike Love of the Boys released a statement to clear up the whole mess. Mike explains:
"The Beach Boys are definitely not suing Katy Perry. In fact, we are flattered that her fantastically successful song is bringing to mind to millions of people our 1965 recording of the Beach Boys' 'California Girls.' We think her song is great and wish her all the success in the world."
See that? The man said flattered! No harm, no foul!!
Someone should do a mashup of their two songs in celebration of them NOT hating each other!!!!
