Katy Perry Doesn't Talk To Rihanna Anymore

Just in case you were wondering why Katy Perry and Rihanna are not bff anymore, it is not about Rihanna's drug use. It isn't about Rihanna's boozing or her freaky sexual appetite. Nope. None of those. It turns out that the two are no longer friends because Rihanna is back with Chris Brown and working with him and that is something that caused them to have several arguments and no longer speak. This is not the first time this story has made the rounds, but at least they used to actually speak. Now, it is turning into an active dislike and hate.

I dont blame Katy Perry. Imagine Rhianna did not go to her wedding to Russell Brand bc Brand didnt like Rihanna's constant drug partying. But at least Russell never hit Katy.

LottaColada said...

Another celebrity relationship bites the dust!

To think I wanted a Katy/Rihanna single.

Barton Fink said...

I imagine Perry is not really missing out on any truly advantageous conversation.

greenmountaingal said...

Good for Katy. Rihanna is annoying.

lostathome said...

I agree with her decision but isn't it kind of a pot calling the kettle black kind of thing? John Mayer isn't exactly anything special either.

phoenix said...

Either you're someone's friend or not. Apparently RiRi never was so I say Katy should watch the door as she moves on, as if Russell Brand and John Mayer were prizes.

All about Eve said...

Don't blame Katy, it's hard to understand someone who's basically volunteering for the abuse.

Enty what's the scoop on Eve saying Britney didn't really sing one of her songs?? Hmmm

MadLyb said...

If Rihanna dumps him, she'll probably dial up Katy. Women rarely listen to their friend's warnings about their crappy boyfriends until they completely break it off. I know I didn't. Then everything comes back to them and they know who to go to, to commiserate with.

Sherry said...

You break up with someone then sit around talking smack about that person with a good friend. Then, when you go back to the jerk you have a friend that you know hates your boyfriend.

This never ends well and I take Katy's side o this.

VIPblonde said...

I had to do the same thing to a friend about 10 years ago. I was there for her everytime she tried to leave her abusive live-in bf, giving her a place to stay, etc. Then I would inevitably wake up in the middle of the night to her calling her bf from my cell phone and asking him to pick her up. Couldn't do it anymore

Baka Neko said...

For people saying John mayor isn't a prize either, he isn't but he isn't an abuser.

parissucksliterally said...

If it is a true story, then good for Katy. She'll probably be there for Rhianna if he dumps her/she dumps him, but cannot support the relationship.

I get it. She is right.

TuesdayAdams said...

Katie needs to get off her high horse. Chris is a jackass but this nitpicking is getting really old. Everyone has moved on from the scandals of Charlie sheen, Mel Gibson, woody Allen, etc. They all have multiple offenses but wheres the outrage when they are allotted numerous opportunities? Everyone is so vocal about Chris brown but celebs are still breaking their necks to work with pedophiles, rapists, and abusers in hollyweird.

That Miranda lambert chick really grinds my gears with her hypocrisy. She has a problem with Chris at the Grammys but no problem being friends with glen Campbell.

Not a fan of Chris but I'm even less of a fan of hypocrites.

Trey said...

Katy Perry JUST gave a red carpet interview gushing about Rihanna. They're still friends. Enty, gotta research what you copy and paste a little better.

Alicia said...

@VIPBlonde - I've been there before as well. I had a friend who actually called me crying asking me to help rescue her from her abusive husband, had to deal with the abusive husband stalking me, showing up at my work to scream at me for helping her.. Only for her to go back within the week. It's heartbreaking when that happens but you just have to walk away. There's no way I could continue being part of such a chaotic cycle.

NomNom83 said...

1.) It's hard to watch a friend make the same mistakes over and over. The only bad guy here is Chris Brown. Fuck that guy.

2.) I hate the way the media casts relationships between female celebs as either BFFs or enemies. Friendships wax and wane for reasons good, bad and none at all. These are two successful adults with their own shit.

3.) Until I hear that Russell or John raised their hands to Katy, there is no comparison to CB. Douche =/= abuse

prolixe said...

Ah, there it is. Was waiting for the Chris Apologist.

Everyone has not moved on from the people you mentioned. Charlie Sheen is ridiculed constantly for his drug use and general sluttiness (though it's rumoured he's a nice guy who gives money when needed, he's still a drug abuser with problems). Mel Gibson can barely get a role any more - they wanted him for the Mike Tyson character in The Hangover and the cast said no f*in way would they work with him and they'd drop out if he came one. Woody Allen is a sick, twisted guy disgusted by anyone who thinks marrying your adopted daughter is sick and twisted.

So... no, CB doesn't get a pass. If you've ever lived with or been a victim of domestic violence, you'd understand why. It's NEVER a one-time thing.

Renoblondee said...

Mayer and Brand may be womanizers but they aren't women beaters. Big difference. And maybe Mayer actually makes her happy? Who knows!

Agent**It said...

Sherry, I agree.

Maximus said...

Wow, I never respected Katy Perry this much.

g.strathmore said...

@VIPblonde, I had to do the same thing. Hopefully, they are actually still friends and this is bad info, but if it's true, I'm definitely Team Katy on this one.

phoenix said...

I'm not a fan of Chris' music and don't like him personally, attitude wise, but if he's learned his lesson and doesn't strike a woman again, at some point people need to put it behind them. He's characterized as a serial woman abuser when in fact so far he made one mistake as a young man. I'm not defending that mistake, just stopping short of hysteria.

Baka Neko said...

He hasn't shown any signs of remorse of it though. It he showed any signs of remorse or got help then people would forgive him.

phoenix said...

I get what you're saying Baka, but in the end, actions speak loudest. People can and do learn from their mistakes. I believe in second chances and hope Chris has learned his lesson. All I'm saying is I'm not going to condemn him for life if it doesn't happen again.

scratchy kitty said...

Not a fan of Katy's, but shes right here. If you stay friends with an abused person and they keep going back to their abused, youre putting yourself in danger when the friend comes crying to you for help. The abuser can come after you, especially if you let the friend stay with you. I say let the social workers and psychologists handle Rihanna. Theres an old saying--dont borrow trouble.
I speak from experinece. When I was a lot younger one of my friends was in a bad relationship and kept going to me everytime they had one of their fights. Then she would always always go back to him and tgen the last time she was staying with me he came over and they started fighting in my apartment. I told them to please stop it and they both went off on me. That was it for me trying to play savior to battered women. You gotta take care of yourself.

Happened go me too.

To me

B. Profane said...

Chris Brown didn't just "raise his hand" to Rihanna, he beat the shit out of her with his fists. I have never hit a woman, but I have been in more than a few fistfights and there's a world of difference between that and slapping someone around. A big, fit guy can kill anyone with one barehanded punch.

Given how many blows she took, she's lucky he didn't kill her. And there's no apology for that. Suck-ass punk, punching out a woman like that--and I'd say that to his face. Pussy.

nevermindthat said...

Katy dont have the best taste in men herself. Russell Brand is/was an alcoholic and a druggie. Mayer strange bed habits like pissing on women. And I know people are saying at least they didn't abuse Katy but that still don't make their behavior ok.

phoenix said...

@B. Profane, I can't argue that. He's a punk for sure or it wouldn't have happened, and he did do number on her. There's nothing I find personally appealing about him and who knows what RiRi sees.

Alicia said...

Exactly @ B.Profane

Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to google the police report. It's so graphic and violent it turned my stomach inside out

Nellie said...

John Mayer may be a douche bag but he never beat Katy within an inch of her life. There is no comparison between the two. End of story.

Miz said...

I've also had to leave a friend when I realised she was addicted to the drama of it all. I got the full works, late night phone calls, she dumped her small kid on me, even asked me to threaten her boyfriend because he was 'scared' of me. I eventually went to court after he attacked her and went too far. She was hospitalised for 3 days. I set her up with an old boyfriend of mine, he is lovely and treats his ladies (girlfriends and girl friends ;p) like princesses. She put him through the wringer trying to push buttons he didn't have, and I lost him as a friend. One night I babysat her little girl while she went out to find a good time, and I packed up all the things I had there (basically living there at one point), when she got back I picked up my bags and didn't look back. Last I heard she was back with the old boyfriend. I feel for her little girl but I couldn't live in that toxic place anymore.

I SMDH whenever someone pops up and defends Brown, citing Sheen, Gibson, et al as men who've 'gotten away with it' - have they fuck. The majority of the free world consider them scum, a complete joke, or even criminals who SHOULD be in jail (I'm looking at you Polanski). They don't have anymore support (and in some cases less) than Brown does. He's scum who never said sorry, and will never need to because of his 'talent'. He's only ever bitched about how difficult it is for him. Fuck him. He should be thankful he's got the life he does, because he doesn't deserve it.

Guppy said...

I'm not so sure about this "it happened one time, he's learned his lesson"bs. As bad as he beat her, i find it hard to believe there wasnt some verbal abuse leading up to that beating in the past. He may have even put his hands on her in the past, and it was well hidden. If she and Katy were really good friends, maybe she's been hip to some past abuse that w don't know about, and feels like she can no longer support that relationship by tacit approval. I don't believe for one second that he just snapped that one night and will never do it again.I'm sure he knows if he tries that again, he has no more chances in the public eye. That doesn't mean he's learned a lesson about it being wrong to beat on someone. Judging by his chair throwing tantrums and fights, he obviously still is overly aggressive. It still boggles my mind how most of us can go through an adult life without throwing our fists up to solve a problem, and others always seem to have some lame excuse about why they've gotten into a fight. Or why they seem to always be present when it goes down, but they weren't involved.

astrogirl said...

Russell is a reformed heroin addict who hangs out and feeds homeless people, he seems like a really sincere person. John Mayer may like to use the bedroom as a toilet but seeing its with other adults and consensual, though not to my taste I don't have an issue what he does behind closed doors. Chris Brown is a hateful anger ridden misogynist with an escalating drug problem.

digal704 said...

Smh

MrWolf said...

Honestly, I don't even get all the Russell Brand hate.

He's funny, not too fucking stupid, tall and in shape, and has a British accent.

Realistically, that's what pretty much all of my female friends want in the guy.

And as far as him being in recovery, he takes it seriously and you never here stories about him drinking or doing drugs.

He's just a dirty hipster, other than that, he seems like pretty much the coolest guy Katy's ever going to get.

Cee Kay said...

I agree that KP really has no room to talk when it comes to bad taste in men.

That was only about John Mayer. Russell Brand is beyond awesome and hey, look at that! she never appreciated him.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

If we had never heard any more Chris Brown violence stories since the Rihanna thing, it would be a lot easier to give him a second chance. He was very young, and maybe change is possible.

BUT.... Since then, he's fought with Frank Ocean, pouted at the Grammys over it, and ripped a phone out of a woman's hand. These are not the actions of a person who has turned away from violence.

And no, I don't give Mel Gibson or Charlie Sheen a pass, either.

Jessica said...

I have to agree with Katie on this. My friend, who was my best friend at the time, was in an abusive relationship for a while. She would call crying about him hitting her and shoving her around but refused to leave him--it was incredibly frustrating and hurtful to watch my friend, someone I loved, allow herself to be abused. Eventually, the guy almost killed her and she ended up in the hospital. If she ever went back to him I would probably never speak to her again.

Ivs said...

@MrWolf - preach!


I really dig Russell. Did you guys see the interview he did with those assholes in the Westboro Church? I never had anything against him before but my jaw literally dropped when I realized how insightful and intelligent that guy is, not to mention eloquent. He seems really, really cool and Katy definitely missed out.



We don't know how much Katy supported Rhianna. Rhi probably came running to her every time there was some Chris-related crisis - that's the only reason I can think of as to why Katy would put her foot down this way. After a while you've got to choose you know? Either you keep protecting and helping this person who willingly keeps putting herself in awful situations, or you start to realize how much of your empathy and energy is wasted on someone who clearly doesn't care about your loyalty, time or deep concern.

Katy's own choice of men has nothing to do with anything - you can still date guys who maybe aren't all that great without it being a big deal. Maybe she's more level-headed and can talk about her problems with a friend without being an emotional parasite. Maybe she understands that a true friendship is built on you giving as much as you receive.

Rhianna doesn't want help, and she probably never really did. She just wanted someone to hold her and shower her with sympathy and attention, and Katy was probably there for her every time. It sucks when it turns out that your friend is self-centered, selfish and immature, and as frustrating and sad as that is, you still have got to realize at some point that you can't fix them. It's not about turning your back on a friend - it's about knowing that you deserve a real friendship without disappointments and sorrow, and then choosing to leave before the other person gets another chance to take advantage of you. It's an incredibly hard and sad decision, and the only thing worse than that is the feeling of loving someone who doesn't love herself.



As rumors go, this might very well be true because even though they're not friends anymore Katy might still love her so I don't really think that Katy speaking warmly of Rihanna proves anything. Ask me about my ex-best friend and I'll gladly tell you hundreds of things I still love about her.


This put me in a really pensive mood, so sorry for the long post. Anyway, if true, this speaks volumes of Katy's character. Good for her.

PugsterMom said...

Let's not forget how Chris tore apart a dressing room after he didn't like the questions he was asked ob a morning news show. I think it was the Today Show. He's a thug and alwaya wil be. I refuse to listen to his music.

I love Russell Brand. I think he wasn't the party animal Katy was hoping for. He's smart and eloquent. His tribute to Amy Winehouse was beautifully written.

Alicia, I wish I had not seen that. The repetition of the violent assault astounded me.

g.strathmore said...

The crazy thing for me is that when Chris Brown first came out, he seemed like the boy next door, sweet face, no tattoos, singing about love. I thought, "What a nice young man." Boy did I not have the radar on that one!

dragon said...

I agree with Russell Brand. I like him.

Jazzy said...

They are all annoying, insecure asses. Yeah, Mayer may not be violent, but how he treats women is despicable. After everyone saw him with Allison Williams, there's Katy cuddled up with her at the Grammys. Katy and Rihanna both need help with self esteem.

Mango said...

Now, it is turning into an active dislike and hate.

Not sure if I believe this.

I could see Katy steering clear of Rihanna to avoid any possible bad press or fallout that might result from rubbing elbows with CB but actively hating Rihanna? That doesn't make sense.

Rhianna hates herself enough for everyone. Katy is young, and doesn't understand all is not black and white.
Battered women need our support, even when they return to their abusers.
I did the same and pulled my support of a battered woman. I was wrong, and it ended in death and permanent disabling injuries on my baby niece.
Never, will I let go of the guilt, that if I had not been so moralistic, maybe I could have prevented some of the tragedy.
Life is a hard lesson, sometimes.
