Katy Perry is so excited about the prospect of a collaboration with BFF Rihanna, she may have put her foot in her mouth discussing the potential project.

Perry weighed in on the forthcoming song (which undoubtedly will be a catchy #1 hit with those two working together), with an apparent dig at Beyonce:

"We've collaborated on things, just not songs yet. It's one of those things that's got so much build-up that we have to deliver," she said on BBC Radio 1.

  • Beyonce in Concert

"I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song 'Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves,' not 'Beautiful Liar.' I definitely want to do something iconic."

Beyonce's 2007 track "Beautiful Liar," featuring Shakira, isn't her best song, but it did reach No. 1 on the iTunes best-seller list and U.S. Hot Singles Sales.

Perry doesn't have a reputation for starting beef with other celebs, so we're guessing she did not mean it as an insult ... even if it sort of reads that way.

Maybe Bey and Katy can collaborate next and bury the hatchet in this non-feud?

Katy Perry is straight up gangsta.

On her whirlwind UK media tour, the bubbly, blue-haired singer cranked out a rendition of ... the Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration, "N**gas in Paris."

Anyone see that one coming? No?

Katy Perry stopped by BBC Radio 1 in London for the performance, during which she substituted the word "ninjas" for the ... similar sounding titular word.

Watch and assess her performance below:

Private Perry, reporting for duty! Pop superstar Katy Perry debuted the teaser trailer for her ‘Part of Me’ music video today, and she's ready for combat!

Showing the Grammy Award-nominated singer preparing for battle in full army gear, the 25-second tease hints at an interesting final product to say the least.

The song, already a hit for Perry, features female-empowering lyrics that some say are a direct slap at ex Russell Brand, though Katy has denied this.

Will the video reveal a similar message, whatever that might be? We’ll find out when it fully premieres Wednesday, March 21. For now, the trailer ...

Despite some lyrics that make clear reference to a relationship falling apart and love gone wrong, Katy Perry insists "Part of Me" isn't about Russell Brand.

"I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current,'" the pop star, 27, told MTV News about her latest single.

The song is full of jabs - "You can keep the diamond ring/It don't mean nothing anyway" etc. - leading many to conclude that it was a dig at Russell.

Not the case, says Perry, whose split with Brand remains amicable.

Katy and Russell wed in October 2010 and split in December 2011.

"Some people that I work with were like, 'Just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago,'" she says. "I'm like, 'I'm not a d---, I'm going to tell the truth.'"

"I wrote it two years ago when I was writing and recording Teenage Dream, [but] it didn't feel right on the record. It's not about [Russell Brand]."

Still, Perry admits that the timing is eerie in a sense.

"Sometimes I'm like, 'Am I living in The Truman Show?' It just feels like sometimes I'm caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music!"

"It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything. I'm overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways."

In a change of pace, Katy Perry has ditched the blue hair, over the top wardrobe and heavy makeup in favor of pure, glamorous sexiness in Interview magazine.

A surprising and smoldering change of pace.

Wearing a bejeweled bra, chandelier earrings and black gloves, Katy was photographed by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer for the March issue.

Thursday marks the release of Interview's interview of Perry, conducted by Kristen Wiig, but her new look is already one of our favorite Katy Perry photos.

Dare to disagree? Take a look below:

Pop superstar Katy Perry will guest star on Raising Hope on the Tuesday, March 6 episode of the Fox sitcom, the network announced via press release this week.

She'll play a prison attendant who claims to be a former friend of Sabrina's.

The episode will find Sabrina arrested after participating in an Occupy Natesville protest. She ends up in jail, and Perry's Rikki (below) plays a key role there:

How did this come about? Executive producer Greg Garcia said:

“Shannon Woodward (Sabrina) told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, ‘Why not? Let's do your friend Katy a favor,’”

“Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious."

"And now, people are telling me that Katy Perry is also a singer. I sincerely hope her appearance on RH helps her get her career off the ground. It's a tough business.”

Nicely played. We're just sad she doesn't have a blue 'fro.

It's been just two months since Katy Perry and Russell Brand split, but rumor has it he's moved on already - with 25-year-old model and artist Oriela Medellin Amieiro.

"It was about 9:30 in the morning, and I saw them getting into a Range Rover," a witness dished to Life & Style, which made Katy's heartbreak its new cover story.

"She had obviously stayed over at his house because she was in evening clothes and high heels. She threw her head back and laughed - she was having a good time."

Not having a good time these days? KP.

Katy Perry: Stabbed in the Heart!

Katy Perry now wonders, according to a "lifelong pal," whether Russell really was the "changed man" he claimed to be when they married in October 2010.

"I'm such a fool," Katy recently confessed, allegedly. "I believed in him."

Sources say that Russell Brand has been "on a tear" recently, partying, clubbing, coming on to women all over LA, a harem of babes that apparently includes, but is not limited to, the Mexican-born Oriela Medellin Amieiro.

Featuring her new song "Part of Me," Katy Perry's Grammy performance contained what many felt was a thinly-veiled shot at Russell Brand Sunday night.

Rihanna and Coldplay joined forces in a performance of "Princess of China" that didn't generate as much controversy, but was still very well received.

Which of the two stars will perform better in a red carpet style showdown, though? That's the question of the hour. At least on The Hollywood Gossip.

Rihanna, as you can see, showed serious skin. Katy? Not so much in a blue gown that matched her hair (obviously). But she made up for that later.

Who will win this couture clash of the pop star BFFs?! Your votes will decide. Choose your favorite style star in our latest Grammy Awards Fashion Face-Off!

Their divorce is amicable and we don't normally like to read into things like this, but Katy Perry's new song, "Part of Me," sure sounds like a dig at Russell Brand.

The newly Katy started off her 2012 Grammy Awards performance singing her hit "E.T.", but then the music suddenly stopped and she burst into "Part of Me."

Aggressively, she sang lyrics like:

“You chewed me up and spit me out / Like I was poison in your mouth / You took my light, you drained me down / You ripped me off, your love was cheap.”

Easy to interpret it as bitterness toward Brand, no? Watch Perry perform in a ridiculously tight, form fitting rubber cat suit of sorts with her blue hair below:

Perhaps the strongest indication that this was aimed at Russell? The original song lyrics include, “You can keep the dog from me, I never liked him anyway.”

But last night, Perry sang: “Keep your diamond ring, in fact, you can keep everything – except for me.” Ouch. That's got to hurt, R ... amicable split or not.

Looks like Katy Perry and Russell Brand are a united front in their split.

The parties have "entered into a comprehensive written settlement of all issues, including, without limitation, with respect to property to be confirmed/assigned to each party," it proclaims in big block letters on Perry's response to Brand's divorce filing.

Considering the duo had no children, "issues" largely refers to money and their $6.5 million house in the Hollywood Hills. But even that's not contentious.

Perry also asked that any obligation to pay Brand spousal support be terminated, a key request considering, under California law, Brand was entitled to half of what his much higher-earning spouse made throughout their 14-month marriage.

Russell's not interested in her money, however.

It appears the couple, who have seemingly had nothing to do with each other since acknowledging their breakup, managed to cut an amicable post-nuptial deal.

The doc also includes a check next to the box: "Respondent's former name be restored to." It goes on to specify her full name, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson.

And that was all she wrote.
