Katy PerryÂ went thereÂ when she was asked about her friendship withÂ RihannaÂ in the latest issue of Elle UK magazine. The flirty pop star and preacherâ€™s kid expressed her love of some Rih-Rih, but doesnâ€™t seem too keen on those surrounding her. Poor dat.
â€œI love her [Rihanna] and every time I see her, Iâ€™m reminded of the light that she has. Thereâ€™s a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages â€” they are the root of their demise. Itâ€™s really unfortunate but you canâ€™t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.â€
That sounds like a subtle way of saying Rihannaâ€™s friend Melissa and the crew need to get on somewhere and quit enabling her to roll in the grass and party in the snow. Two points if you catch both references. Also, I should add the word â€œallegedly.â€ You know, to cover my ass.
â€œSourcesâ€ close to Rihanna â€” aka the guilty parties â€” have responded to the interviewby way of Hollywoodlife.com:
â€œRihanna doesnâ€™t need to be saved by anyone. The man upstairs is to whom she owes everything. Thatâ€™s who brought her here and thatâ€™s who sheâ€™s leaving with!â€
This is stupid and deflecting. Yes, the universe controls us, blah, blah, blah. At the same time, thereâ€™s a thing calledÂ accountability, which homegirl seems to lack. That is, given her penchant forÂ starting her shows lateÂ or not at all, plus that wholeÂ being carried out of concerts â€™cause sheâ€™s too drunkÂ thing we saw a few weeks ago.
But hey, Godâ€™s got it!
Anyway, the guilty parties continued:
â€œEverybody has an opinion about something. Riâ€™s grown and will walk through fire by herself if it means it will make her stronger. Rihanna knows how to cut ties and cut them so sharp that your teeth bleed! She knows how to get rid of toxic people in her life. Sheâ€™s not a baby and has everything she could ever want or need in life. Sheâ€™s happy and thankful.â€
Happy people arenâ€™t allegedly high all the time. Unless your name is Snoop Dogg or Wiz Khalifa.
Match goes to Katy Perry.
