Rihanna Explains Katy Perry "Generic Pop" Comments
RiRi claims she was having a dig at songwriters & producers, not Katy...
The Ke$ha's records as "generic pop."
When speaking about her Loud album, RiRi previously said: "I didn't want the generic pop record that Ke$ha or Lady GaGa or Katy Perry would do. Every song is tailored to me."
Now, the 23-year old has dismissed reports that she had fallen out with Katy, explaining that she was talking about songwriters and producers, not artists like the Firework hitmaker.
The What's My Name star told Fabulous magazine: "I didn't say that. Did you see the interview? That's not what I said. OK, if anything it was a diss to songwriters and producers who can't make anything other than formula records."
"They'll make a song and give it to Rihanna. If she doesn't take it, they'll take it to Katy, and if Katy doesn't take it they'll give it to GaGa. That's not what we want."
She added: "We like songs that scream our individuality. We like records that speak for who we are as artists and that are tailored to us."
In the same interview, the Barbadian beauty also discussed her sex symbol status, claiming that despite being flattered, she sometimes finds the praise "uncomfortable."
