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.
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.
