As we reported yesterday, Lily Allen has been dissing Katy Perry, firstly, for imitating Lily’s style and secondly for her "I’m like a fatter version of Amy Winehouse and a skinner version of Lily Allen" comment. On British radio yesterday, Allen said she had no time for Perry as a musician, describing her lyrics as "crass."
Perry has now struck back, in the guise of an apology, she claims Allen needs to get a sense of humour. She admits making the skinny comment to usmagazine.com. "Yeah, I made a joke about [that] earlier this year." Perry continues, "I was just kind of joking and trying to be funny. I didn’t mean anything by it. Comedians are not necessarily to be taken super seriously." Round two Miss Perry. [NME]
