Rihanna Calls Katy Perry’s Music Generic, Then Says She’d Love To Duet With Her

In a recent BBC Radio 1 interview to promote new single “Only Girl (In The World),” Rihanna somehow managed to slam her BFF Katy Perry (not to mention Lady Gaga and Ke$ha) for making “generic” music, only to turn around and say she would “love to” record a duet with the “Firework” songstress. Listen to RiRi’s faux pas below.

During her somewhat lengthy chat with UK radio personality Scott Mills, Rihanna discussed her in-the-works movie Battleship, her forthcoming “Only Girl” music video and what a great couple Katy Perry and Russell Brand make. Naturally she also sang the praises of her upcoming fifth LP Loud.

“I’ve never been as excited about anything I’ve done creatively,” Rihanna said about a minute-and-a-half into the sitdown. “It’s just the perfect Rihanna album.” [Uh oh—she’s already started referring to herself in the third person here.]

The glam, bookish diva continued: “Every song is tailored to me. I wanted songs on there that were all Rihanna songs, that nobody else could do. I didn’t want the generic pop record that Ke$ha or Lady Gaga or Katy Perry could just do, you know?”

Ouch! Keep in mind, she means the same Katy Perry whose Cirque Du Soleil-themed bachelorette party Rihanna threw together last month!

But either way, expect this to be the last time you see Ke$ha, Rihanna and Katy Perry in a photo together. [Via Misformusic.com]
