Katy Perry Is Mad at the Media for Making It Seem Like She Had Beef With Britney

When Katy Perry tweeted her thoughts on product placement, Vulture — like many other outlets — assumed she was responding to Britney Spears's ad-friendly "Hold It Against Me" video. But KP says no, tweeting: "Dear tabloid media a.k.a. FILTH: please note I expressed an overall feeling about product placement, [its] role in videos and the art of them being compliment[ary] [sic] or sticking out ... Most, if not ALL, popsters welcome deals with products [to] offset costs of big-budget vids in these recessional music industry times. I'VE used them in MY vids before and am happy [to be] able [to] make a better vid because of [them]. Once AGAIN, stop pitting artist against artist for [your] sensational satisfaction ... and stick to what [you're] best [at]: lying, gossiping, exaggerating and overall lending a hand [to] the deterioration of a generation." Sorry, Katy Perry! [MTV]
