Speculation of a rift developed after select comments were highlighted following a Perry interview earlier this week.
When speaking to Fearne Cotton of BBC Radio 1 this week, the pop star talked about a possible collaboration with her friend Rihanna: "I was telling her, you know that Eurythmics song with Aretha Franklin, Annie Lennox, 'Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves'? That's like the kind of song that I'd want to do instead of, like, 'Hips Don't Lie,' which was still a great song by Shakira and Beyonce. I mean, not 'Hips Don't Lie,' what's that duet? 'Beautiful Liar.' " She continued, "I loved it, but I definitely want to do something that is just kind of like, so iconic." (Washington Post)
