Pop star Katy Perry has moved her attention from Drake’s kindness and publicly reacted to fellow rap heavyweight Eminem showing his softer side with the new “Headlights” music video. #PerryAlert
Perry acknowledged the Spike Lee-directed visual early Monday (May 12).
“The new Eminem video, so many feels tho ???? http://youtu.be/7bDLIV96LD4,” Katy Perry tweeted May 12. (Katy Perry’s Twitter)
Em’s “Headlights” music video premiered across media outlets on Mother’s Day.
Directed by Spike Lee, who hasn’t shot a music video since Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” in 2009, the majority of the clip is shot from the first-person perspective of Eminem’s mother, interspersed with video clips and photo album pictures from Eminem’s youth. The video climaxes with the rapper and his mother meeting on his driveway for a heartwarming embrace. (Huffington Post)
Calling into New York radio station Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” Perry recently joked about Drake being a softie.
“I’ve worked with a lot of people that have done little pieces on songs and not that they have egos, but Juicy’s the kindest. He’s like the most kindest, empathetic, sweet, I don’t want to make him out to be softer than Drake. [laughs] I love Drake. He’s like my secret diary. … Can I go back to Drake? I really love Drake, so get off my D. No, listen, I just don’t understand why he ‘doesn’t’ stay at the Intercontinental.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Despite the speculation and buzz Perry sparked, Juicy J came forward and assured fans there were no issues amongst them.
“I think everybody loves everybody, I think everything is cool,” the Memphis rapper explained. “I think a lot of people take comments and they try to switch them all up in certain kind of ways, but Katy, she loves Drake, Drake is a cool guy. Everybody’s cool man.” (REVOLT TV)
