What's all this about, girl?!

We can't tell you how thrilled we were when we heard that Robyn was going to tour with Katy Perry this summer. Two amazing ladies + One stage = Yesssss!

Since she's gearing up for the tour and she's got some killer music out right now, Robyn's been doing a bit of press to promote herself. In one recent interview she was asked about the upcoming tour and working with Katy. Here's how the conversation went:

You’re opening for Katy Perry this summer—how did that happen?
I was asked by her to do it and thought it was a good way of getting to know her audience. It’s bigger than mine. [Laughs]

And are you a fan of hers?
You know what? I have to go now. [Giggles]

Really?
Yeah! I do. But it’s nice to talk to you.

Whaaaaaat? What's with the quick getaway, bb? Something you're not telling us?! Or were you just playing coy??? Fess up!

    Leave Robyn alone and stop trying to make something out of nothing.



  2. 2

    Robyn obviously knows Katy is boring. She has great taste and instincts. Bet she also knows Perez is a big fat mean ass bully who needs to GO AWAY



  3. 3

    atleast Robyn really isnt denying that its nothing more then business.
    you dont have to like everyone you work with.



  4. 4

    So odd, someone invites you to open for them and you should have good mannesr and be cordial. Robyn was also lippy about opening for Madonna's tour. Its fine if you dont like someone but bitting the hand that helps you is not very smart and somewhat of a turnoff considering its their fan base.

    There's no animosity here — talk about making something out of nothing. Robyn said nothing that was disrespectful — please, don't try to turn her into a villain.

    She don't have to like the bitch if she don't want to Perez.. get over it everyone has a different opinion and taste :P

    Re: Zephyrinthesky

    I agree Zephyr. That was an odd (and transparent) thing for Robyn to do, especially since her American fan base isn't very big…



  9. 9

    Robyn hasn't been relevant since 1997…

    Robyn is so much better than Katy Perry. She performs for thousands of people, and then suddenly she is back to being the opening act for some artist with terrible lyrics and extremely commercial songs.. It must feel like she never moves forward.

    Robyn is queen, DON´T FUCKING TELL HER WHAT TO DO!

    i think its just disrespectful of the interviewer to keep talking bout katy perry when it should have been about robyn. i think she walked out cause of that not because of katy

    Re: Zephyrinthesky
    She wasn't being lippy about Madonna. She basically said she could never deal with the pressure of being as big as Madonna.



  13. 13

    Who's Robyn?? Somebody's jealous!



  14. 14

    KATY SHOULD BE OPENING FOR ROBYN



  15. 15

    Robyn and Katy Perry's music is so much different and their approach in marketing their music. So yeah, I can see why Robyn may not like her music or perhaps even image. In the States, mainstream pop music like Katy Perry does exceptionally well, sex appeal helps sell a lot of music, but I think Robyn opening for Katy Perry will open a lot of people's eyes about music in general and what really matters, which is producing magnificent songs, not so much strutting your ass around in latex singing about shit that doesn't even matter.



  16. 16

    Katy's is performing because shes passionate about her music and fans while Robyn who doesn't like her music agrees to open for her just for gain $$. Thats why Katy's fan base will always be bigger then Robyn's.



  17. 17

    What is there to be a fan of exactly?

    If Katy Perry is dead set on introducing a more obscure singer to her American audience, why not choose someone who actually could USE it, and would be GRATEFUL? Cheryl Cole?



  19. 19

    I have to say just because Katy Perry is famous it doesn't mean she has any talent.Her voice is just too painful to listen live,she sounds like a goat in heat.



  20. 20

    That's not throwing shade. They asked her a question and she answered, well sorta. Not everybody has to be a Katy fan and not every one is *raises hand*



  21. 21

    Robyn needs to be a big girl and show a little class. Someone huge asks you to open for them and you behave with no class or humility. Kind of like the jealous plain younger sister of a pretty popular girl…..

    Perfect answer for such stupid and malicious question. There are too many morons thinking they are journalist.
    By the way, Robin is way more talented than Katy Perry, so no need to create tension between them, Katty will learn a lot from Robyn while touring together.



  23. 23

    Uh probably because Katy is a talentless HACK and Robyn is a real musical artist. Maybe that's why fat ass…



  24. 24

    I don't like Katy Perry either but who the hell is "Robyn" and what makes her think she is above the person she is opening for… I mean a little respect isn't out of the question. How hard is it to be like "Her musically isn't really my style but she's cool."



  25. 25

    OR - she really had to go. Did someone consider that? You don't know the whole story behind the answer and you probably never will.



  26. 26

    Considering that Robyn (robynkonichiwa) tweeted this at Katy Perry yesterday, I really don't think there will be a problem:
    "@katyperry GIRL, I´m gonna get the crowd hot and ready for you like Cup-a-Noodles!"



  27. 27

    Oh, and Robyn (robynkonichiwa) also tweeted this:
    @ITSJEREMYSCOTT @katyperry we gon make u some chaka chaka double rainbow noodles with extra hot sauce and a cherry on top. Katy Robyn style.



  28. 28

    Dumb move on Robyn's part. I suspect some of that Katy Perry audience she wants a piece of might not react too friendly towards her on tour. I like Robyn's music better then Katy's, but there are times when being honest is not the best thing to do. TACKY.

    robyns nice she only had good things to say about the women on MTV ..
