Pop singer Katy Perry put on for Jay-Z and Kanye West over the weekend as new footage showing the recently divorced diva rapping "N*ggas In Paris" has emerged online.
In the footage, Perry is shown rocking a Jay-like Yankee fitted cap and spitting both Hov and Ye's lyrics.
Katy Perry made a bold choice by covering Jay-Z and Kanye West's hit "N*ggas in Paris" during her appearance on BBC Radio 1Xtra's "Live Lounge." Sporting teal hair and a Yankees cap, the pop princess rapped along to the explicit single off Watch the Throne. "This is about to get real embarrassing," she said before diving into the performance.

The 27 year-old recently made headlines for separating from actor/comedian Russell Brand late last year.
Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry ... TMZ has learned. In the docs, filed in L.A., Brand cites "irreconcilable differences." The two were married Oct. 23, 2010 in India. They have no kids. The divorce docs say there are "community property assets" -- it's a sign there might not be a prenup, or if there is one it doesn't cover all of the earnings and other assets they accumulated. The docs do not give a date the couple separated. (TMZ)
After the news became public, Brand issued a statement confirming their separation.
In recent weeks however, celebrity media reported that their marriage was in trouble. They spent the Christmas holidays apart, with Brand being photographed in England, and Perry spotted in Hawaii -- both without their wedding rings."Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I'll always adore her and I know we'll remain friends," Brand said in a statement on Friday, after filing divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior Court. No separation date was given. Perry's representatives did not return calls for comment on Friday. (Reuters)
Last fall, Grand Hustle rapper T.I. remixed "Paris" hit record.
A while back the Grand Hustle general mentioned that he might be on Jay-Z and Kanye West's "N*ggas in Paris (Remix)." When asked about the status of that record, T.I. said, "Well, I officially have recorded my verse. And I haven't spoken to 'Ye. I let 'Ye hear it . I think 'Ye let Jay hear it as well. I don't think a determination has been made on whether or not it is going to be official. But if it's not official, it will be unofficial. It will be heard one way or another. I will assure you that." But that's not all. T.I. wants to add his vocals to more songs. "I'm looking for some more records to jump on," he said. "That's what I'm doin' right now. I'm commandeering hit records right now. I'm hijacking hit records. If you got a hit I'm on it." (XXL Mag)
