A few days ago, Katy Perry heard 17-year-old Chicago rapper Chief Keef’s song “Hate Bein’ Sober” on the radio. She tweeted concern, saying, “I now have serious doubt for the world.” Keef, who wasn’t directly mentioned in the tweet, found out on Thursday evening and got pretty salty. “Dat bitch Katy Perry Can Suck Skin Off Of my Dick,” read one tweet. “Ill Smack The Shit out her,” read another. For some reason, Katy Perry decided an apology was owed. From her. To him.
Perry closed it out classily, saying, “Believe me, I’m a lover not a hater.” If she really felt the need to engage with this kinda puerile nonsense, she should have just said, “Believe me, I’m a firework,” spiked a microphone onto her computer, and never thought about Chief Keef again.
