Katy Perry: Fan of Lady Gaga, Jesus Christ

Subtlety is not exactly Katy Perry's strong suit, as she evidenced when she told "Showbiz Tonight," "I'm the hugest Lady Gaga fan, but I'm also the hugest Jesus Christ fan!"

But with that statement, she may have put to rest all those rumors that she's in a nasty feud with Lady Gaga.

"Showbiz Tonight" was there in New York City's Times Square when Katy Perry, clad in a rubber dress, jumped off the stage after performing her new single "California Gurls," and of course we left no stone unturned in the interview.

You might remember that the so-called feud with Lady Gaga ignited when Perry tweeted remarks that appeared to attack Gaga and her "Alejandro" music video.

The video featured Gaga slipping rosary beads into her mouth and a crucifix painted on the crotch of her skin-tight wardrobe. Perry tweeted the same day the video premiered: "Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke."

Naturally, after that tweet, people thought it was an all-out war between the two pop stars. Are they in a knockdown, drag out fight like everyone is saying? "No, of course not," Perry told us. "I think people like to put girls into feuds to make them catfight, 'cause it's kinda hot to see two oiled girls go at it. I'm the hugest Lady Gaga fan but I'm also the hugest Jesus Christ fan!"

We got the feud rumors taken care of but we would've been remiss not to put Perry on the spot about her engagement to "Get Him To The Greek's" Russell Brand. Perry said that while they are preoccupied with their professional lives at the moment, wedding bells should ring sometime soon.

"I think we're gonna do it this year," she said. "It's just [that] there is a lot of planning going into it and....you'll hear when it happens."

Let's not forget that the "I Kissed A Girl" star has had a very big week outside of the "feud" and her wedding plans: She also debuted the new eye-popping music video for her hit song "California Gurls." If you've seen it, you probably have a lot of questions for the singer about where the idea for this "Candyland" meets Snoop Dogg video came from.

Perry said it's all from her. "I always like to put a twist on things whether it's a word or a visual. I think it's important to give it so many different dimensions. When you hear 'California Gurls' you think, okay, automatically it's gonna be a music video of girls that aren't wearing much, in a beach setting. And, ah-ah, not going there."

Well, if she was aiming for outside-of-the-box, whipped cream shooting out of her bikini top doesn't exactly scream 'ordinary.' "It's [really] fun. It's something I'm really proud of," Perry said. "It'll be hard to top! And if you have the munchies, you will love it!" (Noted.)

Perry's new album "Teen Dream" featuring "California Gurls" drops August 24th.

Everyday we watch the news and believe everything we hear or see. If you dont like it , you own it to toon out from the Media. No excuse.

    Lady GaGa is allowed to NOT be a Christian if she so chooses. Katy Perry is allowed to be religious. It's that simple.

    Katy is a hypocrite. I thought her songs used to be ironic and all, commenting on how shallow our society has become but pairing up with snoop dogg is an all time low. I don't like Lady Gaga's music, but i respect her for standing up for gay people. People need to deal with real issues, and forget prejudice just because of some book.

    I'm a Catholic and love Gaga too. She is a Catholic too, she's close to this religious imagery. I'll always be a Catholic and a Christian no matter what anyone says. What athiests say does not affect me at all, no-one is forcing them to believe anything nowadays. We're not Muslims, we're more enlightened now. People can please themselves. I'm by no means perfect either. People have a right to their own opinion about her video, but I must say that 'Alejandro' does not offend me at all. Gaga is great and so is God! I love them both!

    Katy Perry promoted a Gay-Lesbian act in one of her music videos,
    In which I have no problem with the gay community what-so-ever,
    BUT!!! however she (Katy Perry) sings (I kissed a Girl and I liked it)
    and claims to be a Christian, and then Bashes Lady Gaga for her video ....

    Guess what Katy...you are a hypocrite

    If you people would actually take the time to read about the Alejandro interpretation before you start commenting about gaga being an anti-christ you would realize that the video is actually showing her struggles with the catholic church, and with prejudice, as well as her struggles with her own demons. Swallowing the rosary was symbolism for her taking in the good and taking in christ despite the issues she is facing. If you watch her interviews she talks about her love for god, and her motivation is to create an equal world free of hate and prejudice where people are free to be themselves. Last time i checked this was a good thing. And I am so tired of people hating all of the time and worrying so much about what god would want of other people. LET GOD MAKE HIS OWN JUDGEMENTS and you just worry about yourselves!

      Right on! What is it with people and passing judgment these days – especially when they haven't done any research on the subject? People have lately taken their freedom of speech as a "license to be uneducated and so whatever the hell they want" ~ I don't think that was the original intention of the idea...

    Katy Perry's only back peddling to avoid further backlash. I don't care for Gaga at all but for her to make veiled comments to any artist about "blasphemy" when she herself has admitted to writing songs to shock her pastor parents is both hypocritical and stupid. You're either rebelling against your upbringing or you're standing by it but you can't do both Katy. This is why it's important for people to keep their religions to themselves.

    I am glad to hear that Katy Perry still loves Jesus. As for Lady Gaga, she is resorting to shock over talent mighty early in her career... she needs to pace herself if she is going to have any staying power.

    I find what Katy Perry said was very truthful. There is nothing wrong with giving her opinion. I think it is awful that people make fun of other people's beleifs. Just because you may not beleive in Jesus, Budah, or other religions God's doesn't give you the right to be disrespecful to others. I live and breathe my life as a Christian. I am not anywhere near perfect but praying and reading my Bible gives me my stregth in how I should live my life. People who have beleif in a higher power use it as medication to their soul. It gives them hope and strength. Being rediculed isn't fun either. If everyone keeps on harping about peace and harmony with one another then we should also show respect to others in what they beleive in by being more sensitive in our actions.

    I find lady Caca to be unoriginal. She sings dance music and puts on outrageous outfits to try to surprise people. I find her completely disgusting and a copy cat. I saw right through her when she first came out. She used to have brown hair and never dressed anything like what she dresses now. She had to go and create some crazy wild image so people would even look at her. She uses the outfits also as a disguise to cover her ugly face. She has the face of a pit bull.

    Lady Gaga is possibly one of the most amazing and original artists out there right now! No one even comes close to doing what she is for music and art. Katy Perry has nice songs but I find her videos cheap looking. Lady Gaga puts so much effort into everything she does and is truly changing the music industry.

      Virtually ALL music these days is not "music" Songs, beats and riffs of yesterday are "sampled" since the "artists" who sing them have no actual talent. I would like to think that Miss Hudson as well as Miss Germanotta are decent human beings but sadly, are not artists in the sense of Etta James, Sinatra, Nat King Cole or others

    • Ahem..

      Lady Gag is not the first on to don the gun Bra. Have you ever heard of Tank Girl... Lady Gaga is also a big mash up of Madonna and Marylin Manson... soo back to the point i signed on to make. Lady Gaga is indoctrinating her fans with luciferian aka Satanic imagery, and has sold her soul to the Devil. I don't know where Ms. Perry's true allegences lie but if you havve to pick a side, and you do, Team Jesus is the one to be on. Becareful watching all those demonic videos with their sacreligous imagery, that don't seem to line up with the words in the songs. Otherwise you'll think all those upside down crosses are benign and those goats head images are meaningless. Read your bible, and tak a stand.. Your either on Team Jesus or you are playing for the opposition..

      By saying she is a 'Jesus Christ fan', she is not 'standing up for Christianity' by any means. Jesus didn't ask for people to be His fan, He called people to follow Him. At one point in time Katy Perry was Katy Hudson, a Christian pop singer. I'm not judging her life, but don't think her saying she is a fan is any type of testimony to who Jesus is or what He may have done in her life. Our lives as believers are called to line up with Scripture, and I would like to hear how she thinks her life is pointing to Jesus or pointing others to Jesus.

    Its hard to respect anyone who has any respect for "Lady Gaga." I mean, I understand tween pop music is tween pop music, but there's SO many adults now listening to kiddie pop, its unbelievable. I've actually met people over the age of 12 who listen to Gaga, which is extremely hard to believe. I'm not being sarcastic, I'm completely serious.

      How on earth can you justify letting a 12 year old listen to GaGa? I love the Lady but there's not way I'd ever let any of my children (if I had them) listen to her – the lyrics are less than wholesome for a young person with an impressionable mind. The trouble with people like you is that you generalize the type of interests certain groups are supposed to adhere to. I'm a 23 year old college graduate/ working professional who listens to Terri Clark/ Lady GaGa/ Katy Perry/ Brad Paisley/ and pieces from Lully, Rameau, Couperin and Mozart all in one day. My interests range from weightlifting, to WWII history, to fashion and politics and fishing – Why am I only supposed to like a few of these and not others?! Why is that not normal? What is normal; a dull completely defined set of interests and tastes as prescribed by you? I was baptized a Lutheran and converted to Catholicism b/c of the hypocrisy of the Americanized version of Protestant Christianity. I am tired of people generalizing what we are supposed to like and do. The world is full of difference, which makes it interesting. Where do you get the license to make any comments about what people should like. Disrespect me from your bubble, but keep your nose out of mine.
