In a recent interview with MTV News, here’s what Perry had to say about her friendship with Rihanna being exaggerated, following the Chris Brown assault, “I don’t think I really, like, reached out to her. We’re friends and we’re both kind of on this crazy roller coaster, and … it’s nice to have good girlfriends. I pride myself on having cool chicks in my life, and she’s a cool chick,” Perry said. “We’ve hung out a couple times.
One rumor not exaggerated, says Perry, is that the two are in deed buddies, “Of course I consider her a friend, but it’s not like ‘I’m there,’ making a big deal of it, because I feel weird about that type of stuff. I’m trying to always be there for my friends,” she said. “She’s a really cool chick. I love her style. … She’s one of those unaffected people.”
Perry later went on to say,”Um, you know, we’re just buddies. We’ve had dinner, and that’s about it,” she said. “Her personal life has probably already been blown, I don’t really have to go into that. I’m sure she probably wants a break.”
