Rihanna Explains Katy Perry & GaGa "Diss!"

rihanna-clarifies-about-her-recent-katy-perry-diss

We assumed it would only be a matter of time!

Rihanna is seriously clarifying some comments that she made during an interview on Radio One, during which she called Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, and Ke$ha's music "generic!"

She explains:

“Katy is my friend! I would never diss her. I don’t see her as my rival. My only rival is myself, because I always wanna get better and better. I meant all the producers, that give singers like Katy, GaGa or Ke$ha always the same kind of pop-songs. They think, for sure one of them will take it and make it a single. They don’t realize that everyone of us has their own style. I love Katy’s music! That’s why I wanna make a duet with her. We’re already working on it.”

We're still not sure why she said it the way that she did on air, instead of how she's explaining it now, but we'll give her the benefit of the doubt - especially because she and Katy ARE good friends, and we otherwise have no idea why she would be running her mouth like that!

What do U think?? Is Rihanna sincere or just seriously backpedaling??

    If you ladies would like some real balls in your mouth… call me.



  2. 2

    girl has the back pedal to the metal.



  3. 3

    has anyone noticed that comments appear right away now???



  4. 4

    there good friends for public face…thats it



  5. 5

    How can you even compare trashy, air-headed, and amazingly unique? I mean uhhh how can you compare Kesha, Katy and Lady Gaga? All their styles are SO different…..Pretty sure Gaga writes her own stuff.



  6. 6

    Both of them have the same music anyways.



  7. 7

    There was nothing really for Rihanna to clarify. She was speaking specifically to the cookie cutter mentality of the music scene today. Katy Perry’s California Gurls sounds exactly like Ke$ha’s Tik Tok. Both girls could have sung the other’s song and it would have made absolutely no difference. Everybody just plugs into the same formula. They run out and get the same producers to produce the same, yes, generic music that anyone of these girls could sing. So what exactly did Rihanna say that wasn’t true? Besides, if Katy Perry can dish it to Lady Gaga about her “blasphemous” music, she outta be able to take it when it’s dished back at her. Just sayin’.



  8. 8

    She's no more special than GaGa who is using super producers like Star Gate from Norway.



  9. 9

    well, she's still dissing GaGa. You know GaGa claims to write all her music, so Rihanna does kinda diss GaGa's style of music.

    I like Ke$ha… the others, not so much. Rihanna needs to tone it down a little, her voice is not the second coming of jezus, even though I'm sure she believes it is.



  11. 11

    Ha! Backpedaling forsure! In my opinion, Rhianna is so confused about herself and looks for other artist for inspiration such as Lady Gaga. Also producers dont give Lady Gaga songs..she writes her own shit.



  12. 12

    I don't like gaga but she writes her own stuff:) so it WAS a gaga diss



  13. 13

    All of them make terrible music.



  14. 14

    this is another phony beef, its makes you feel involved or part of something, most people have a team mentality and the industry knows it and plays off of it, the end result is they create diehard fans.



  15. 15

    take away her and the other girls team, producers writers, stylist, backup singers, dancers publicist etc and all you have is a talentless person that would not know what's up or down…



  16. 16

    Uhm, nice try at a save.



  17. 17

    Katy is naive. Rihanna is a total bitch, it seems. Katy is more relevant than her right now and being her friend is sure to keep her at the spotlight.

    Just my opinion.



  18. 18

    Wow is she delusional. Rihanna is a no talent hack that needs autotune to sound like she can sing. Both Lady GaGa and Perry have real talent and can actually sing in tune and sing well. Need proof? Go look at the videos of a young Rhianna singing before she was famous compared to vids of young Gaga and Perry before they were famous. Rihanna sings horribly out of tune and is tone deaf.

    Ke$ha is just a white trash skag.



  19. 19

    I want one of those 'lollipops' along with rihanna's nails :D



  20. 20

    gaga wrotes her own music so isnt that still an insult?



  21. 21

    they alll sing the same type of music but its true they both have a different style of pop music or sound is more like. but its true though katy perry and kesha use the same producers and songwriters which is why you hould be careful not to use the same sound as another artist. now on rihanna and lady gaga they both have the same style on sound both sound style is exactly like britney spears many of rihanna songs where songs that was for britney spears album blackout where in rihannah album good girl gone bad and she still uses the same sound as britney and lady gaga uses the same sound from britney spears album circus. dont say rihanna or lady gaga dont copy from britney spears because according itunes britney spears realeas her album blackout and circus first than lady gaga album the fame and even rihanna used same sound from britney spears album blackout to bring that edge sound to her album rated R.



  22. 22

    No… she's not back pedaling, she out right lying! Rihanna seen to have a nick for lying. It maybe me but, I don't buy the crap about bf, they are in competition with one another. And if she was speaking of the similarity with those singers, my question is what do she call " The Only Girl , song and the video is jacked from Kelis, Rihanna has no originally….

  23. NDGuy says – reply to this


    23

    She sounds like an idiot. Producers don't give Gaga generic pop music. She writes her own stuff and that's why it is anything BUT generic. Rihanna, have you heard Only Girl? It is about the most generic pop song out right now. Nice try, moron.

  24. NDGuy says – reply to this

    Re: queen britney – That was perhaps the most incoherent babble that I have ever read. Brit is great, but she is a dancer/performer… not really an artist. Gaga at least writes and sings HER OWN music.



  25. 25

    Defending for Gaga here,wtf are you talking about Rihanna?!Giving the same kind of pop song to singers including Gaga?Gaga writes her stuff with other writers,and if you think all the music including yours is "so-so" then go on….prove it if you can come up with better material than anyone else without the help of professional songwriters?If you think something is broke,then fix it!



  26. 26

    She's a frenemy



  27. 27

    she is full of herself and full of shit



  28. 28

    rhianna cant sing live…every performance proves it. she is def full of shit.



  29. 29

    To be perfectly honest they're all completely fake. They all sound horrible live.



  30. 30

    I dont get why Rihanna is so famous…her songs are not the best..in fact i feel like she's gotten sympathy play after the chris brown thing…just my opinion



  31. 31

    Not surprised….Met Rihanna……..she was extremely rude and arrogant……Heard her in concert…she was off key and not very good……Thank God Chris Brown was at the concert….(even though I went for her)…. he was a fantastic performer, dancer and singer……PLUS he stopped, talked and posed for photos with my 11 year old daughter….While Rihanna was nasty to her…….She lost many fans that night with her behaviour…



  32. 32

    her argument does not make any sense cause katy writes all of her lyrics…unlike rihanna…she gets all the lyrics written & beats done before she even "touches" a song…btw: didn't she kinda critizised herself?! o.O



  33. 33

    LoL,this bitches are Ugly….I hate Rihanna,Katy,Gaga….who cares who disses who?? cheap art…… I would rather listen to Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera



  34. 34

    I don't get why Rhianna made these comments. IMHO you can stick Rhianna, Katy Perry, Kersha and Gaga in the same boat, because they're all the same. Does Rhianna think she's edgier than the others?? They're all exactly the same.



  35. 35

    funny as Rihianna has not fucking talent she cant sing for shite i went to her concert i got tickets for notting would not pay to her trying to sing and walked out, bad bad gaga is a Legand a bigger one that high forhead ever will and plus she writes her own stuff also unlike Ailen head, as for katy perry does not bother shes ok but Rihanna on the hand terrible!!!



  36. 36

    idiots… katy perry not only writes her own stuff, she writes for others also… at least 4 of the songs from the last kelly clarkson cd were written by katy perry…
    lady gaga does NOTHING but copy Madonna… it is getting tired… hasnt it been like 14 minutes and 55 seconds for her already?? Y A W N



  37. 37

    Oh please RiRi shut your mouth, Ke$ha,Katy and GaGa are completely different and Rihanna is just a sell-out.



  38. 38

    I'm not sure where the confusion is coming from. I didn't think she was dissing Katy or Gaga when she made that first comment. I understood exactly waht she was saying. I didn't think she was calling either lady generic at all.



  39. 39

    some people kinda freak out at interviews and day things they dont mean. everyone shouldve known rihanna would not go againt katy. they are well known friends



  40. 40

    Ummm Rihanna has that awful new song out and it's soooo bad. She hasn't had a good hit a LONG time. She's jealous. LOL. If you want a good laugh, watch her new song on youtube. It's her "trying" to be Lady Gaga but she fails bad



  41. 41

    She's not dissing anyone really…She's just saying that the trendy producers like RedOne, Dr. Luke and Max Martin all produce similar sounding songs. She's dissing the whole trend of dance right now…."Like A G6" is a perfect example of that formula…Ke$ha probably turned that song down and they probably offered it to Rihanna too…Not really a diss but insight from one who would know…RIhanna probably gets songs offered to her all the time that shepasses on and then they go and offer it to someone else.



  42. 42

    Well, at least Gaga can writte all of her songs and play the piano and sing live very well.I think her music is very unique.



  43. 43

    Re: rayrayrayray
    Gaga WRITES, COMPOSES, & CO-PRODUCES her own music. Not to mention that she DESIGNS, CREATIVELY DIRECTS her stage shows.

    Do your research you dim-wit



  44. 44

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind
    um no. Rihanna has EVERYTHING done for her. Her music is written for her, composed for her, produced for. She has ABSOLUTELY NO KNOWLEDGE of music composition. Not to mention that she's a TERRIBLE live singer.

    Gaga is a great singer, and is in control of her music and her stage shows. Not to mention that this bitch is degrading someone who was ACCEPTED TO JULLIARD SCHOOL, and was ONE OF 20 PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO BE ACCEPTED TO TISH SCHOOL OF THE ARTS, which she attended.

    Gaga has incredible knowledge of music, art, history, etc. She knows what she's doing, contrary to these industry puppets.

    ummm what she really meas is Katy Perry , Kesha and lady gaga write all their own music and I have other people write my music and i just make the selection of what I think should be my style …. she really needs to STFU she doesnt have as ense of anything she started copying lady gaga styles…. she got lucky with picking the right single w/ umbrella before that she was singing pretty genetric even bad pop/ r&b she only recently started trying to look
    "rock" in order to stand out but she tries to hard… she is not unique , she can hardly sing… she proved that at the grammy's she can carry a tune big deal. she feels the need to compare heserf and diss other artist who can sing and or at least write music and melodies unlike her.



  46. 46

    Pfft.



  47. 47

    Most of you guys sound like complete idiots. Who cares who write the music and who doesnt. Do you guys know that producers only make the beats? Song writers write the song? There are composers to compose the song, which gives the song the melody. Man for all I am concerned, Lady Gaga should stop making music and being the music industry clown!



  48. 48

    She was right. Music sounds the same no thanks to producers pushing them with songs they think are single worthy. I bet they all want to write their own songs once in a while.



  49. 49

    uhh. Last time I checked Gaga writes EVERY SINGLE one of her songs, so get over yourself Rihanna. You clearly made a boo boo and tried to climb your way out of the hole you are in. You just made yourself look more of an asshole, discrediting Gaga like that. ew.



  50. 50

    Rihanna cannot talk about GENERIC music. She makes music with the most generic people. Kanye, Jay-Z, and now Katy Perry. She needs to practice what she preaches. How can you say that about Gaga when she clearly writes her own music. Jealous much? Stay out of Gaga's vagina, she is an amazing musician. I doubt any of these so-called-artists can even play a musical instrument, let alone write a really deep, and meaningful song or put on a spectacular performance like Gaga.. So I would like to tell Rihanna SHUT UP, please.
