Pop music sensation Katy Perry recently did an interview with MTV, one that MTV had been trying pushing for months. Perry’s recent and rapid ascent to super stardom kept her schedule too busy to shoehorn in any extra sit-down time. But finally, last week, Perry met for a no-holds-barred interview about everything from people confusing her with actress Zoey Deschanel to her rumored relationship with Josh Groban to her friendship with singer Rihanna, who has herself been much in the headlines recently.
Steering away from the controversy surrounding Rihanna’s stormy relationship with Chris Brown, Perry said that the two are good friends, and hang out together like girlfriends do: for drinks, or dinner, or just to talk. Referring to Rihanna as a “cool chick,” Perry also expressed admiration for Rihanna’s character and sense of style.
And Perry also denies the rumors that she is in a relationship with Josh Groban, the tenor-ish concert singer famous for, among other things, singing at the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama in January.
Perry, 24, has recently expressed interest in appearing in films as an adjunct to her musical career.
