Katy Perry Manager Slams Selena Gomez Firing Report

Published: Sunday 29th Jun 2014 by David


Last week, fans of ‘Disney’ belle Selena Gomez turned a suspicious eye towards Katy Perry, when HITS Daily Double’ published a report claiming the latter had her fired from the management company they were both signed to.

This week, after catching wind of the story, Perry’s manager has issued a statement slamming the report, going to great lengths to explain why ‘HITS’ report was both “damaging” and “malicious.”

Read below…

‘HITS’ reports:

Direct Management’s Martin Kirkup has written in to take issue with our recent item regarding Selena Gomez and Katy Perry (see below). “Your story is false in all respects,” Kirkup asserts, “and since other outlets have repeated your story focusing on an allegation which is very damaging to Katy Perry—that she is responsible for another artist getting fired, which is categorically untrue—we believe HITS has a responsibility to disavow this malicious rumor as quickly as possible.” Kirkup further notes that “[Perry’s day-to-day manger] Bradford Cobb is a full and equal partner with Steve [Jensen] and me at Direct Management Group, and the three of us make major decisions together.” As for parting ways with Gomez, Kirkup writes, “a young woman looking for new management asked us to manage her six weeks ago. Our advice to her was to take some time off, travel abroad, think through what she wanted for her life and for her career—since she has a lot of options in music, film and television—and when she returned from this trip, we’d all talk. That’s exactly what happened. We found we really just didn’t have the same views or strategy about her career and agreed not to move forward together. As her lawyers can confirm, we never discussed or signed a contract, nor did we ever act on her behalf. I know it’s a lot more boring than the very colorfully offensive version you printed. Sorry for that!”

      Lmao the fact that your only attempt of shade is “she’s basic” though! Basic is not being able to break the top 40 on the lead single for your 3rd album that is allegedly “highly anticipated”. Basic is taking 4 weeks to sell over 200,000 copies of a $1.29 single. Basic is needing streaming points to crack the Billboard top40. Basic is dropping 20 spots in a week. Basic is a rapper who lip syncs. Basic is the horrible plastic surgery Nicki got because she’s insecure. Basic is having your second album being certified platinum even though it hasn’t reach 1 million two years later deep a massive hit. Basic is being the most charted woman in Billboard history yet not a single track has hit #1. That is basic. Poor Onkia 🙁

      • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

        Lmao @ no impact as every pop star decides to go natural in style after the first promo pics for the Prism era came out. Lmao @ no impact as every pop star adopts a campy style. Lmao @ no impact looking at the legacy I Kissed A Girl, Hot N Cold, California Girls, Firework, ET, and her other #1s had. Lmao @ can’t do anything even though she writes all her music and plays the guitar and slays every acoustic performance. Lmao @ basic sales when

    What’s this I read about Katy who is apparently gonna diss Mariah Carey
    In her new video?
    This better not be true I will write this b*tch off and make a bon fire with her albums that I bought

  8. Mark111 June 29, 2014

    I’m sorry, but Serena Mayonnaise isn’t a factor to Katy at any shape or from. He only have a few hits and I don’t count the Rihanna rihjects.

    • sleazy June 29, 2014

      All rihanna big hits are rejects Umbrella, We found love etc so bye

  9. Basic bxtches June 29, 2014

    Katy is a basic flop bxtch. She sees a younger girl and she gets all bxtchie. Tell me has her album surpassed 4 million copies yet? With two #1 singles, her basic album could not surpass 4mill. It was a real kiii for Lorde to win a Grammy be4 this hoee.

    • GaGa’s tampon June 29, 2014

      Her album is stalling at 1,1 Mill 🙁

      • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

        Prism passed 3 million worldwide last week and is at 1.4 million in the US. Not sure where this 1.1 million is coming from.

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

      How does two #1 US singles indicate your album should be pass 4 million in less then a year? Explain the math behind that. 3 million in 8 months with a touring that’s selling out like crazy. Continue to seethe.

  10. Basic bxtch June 29, 2014

    Kunty is a desperate flop basic bxtch. Flop flop flop

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

      If “basic” and “flop” are the best you can do then pleas log off your computer or whatever device you’re using and never use the internet again. Ironic for you to call Katy basic when “basic” and “flop” are the only words in your vocab. Yawn.

      • pu$$y juice lover June 29, 2014

        Basic flop screeching yodelling pathetic childish untalanted. I have more but dont have time for you ho.

      • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

        Since you stan for R******, none of those are authorized for you to use. Try again.

  11. Kim Kardashian Stan June 29, 2014

    I love how people call katy basic yet she’s slaying all your favs

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

      Lmao exactly why “basic” is the only shade they have. Or should I say it because it’s probably the same person recycling screen names.

  12. Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

    You queens need to find some fresh shade. Nothing is more basic then saying “she’s basic and a flop” every single post. Basic was cute several months ago but its not anymore. Not at all surprised that you queens believed Hits Double Daily’s story. They had no receipts and most TGJ readers don’t have receipts and just make sh*t up and run with it. No matter how big an artist is, they don’t have that kind of power. Selena is not on Katy’s radar, not even slightly. Stars Dance took half a year to outsell Prism’s first week sales. She’s never seen a #1 single or platinum album and took 4 albums to finally break the top 10. One of the Boys alone has outsold her entire career. But continue on with your “flop” and “basic” claims without any receipts to back them up while Katy continues to scalp your fav on all three fronts: singles, albums, and touring.

    • pu$$y juice lover June 29, 2014

      No1 has time for your dike ass novels ho. But lemme tell ya one thing. Your ho is a childish, basic, screeching , pathetic, talrntless payola using ho. Have a blessed day.

      • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

        Chile, I don’t have the time to decipher what you’re trying to say. Have a seat

    This story is such a non factor. Neuxx 1 curr. »»»»

  14. Bathroom party (walmart queen) June 29, 2014

    I’m dying over this stan think just because this chick is topping makes her some extraordinary artist anyone can do that his days lol newsflash she’s basic as hell she’s never gonna be come no type her music is forgettable no impact whatsoever no creativity her music is cheesy as hell she can’t dance can’t sing can’t perform so what there’s no it factor on her lol all the other pop stars at least had something either they dance they have a voice or are creative katy basic perry has nothing and you’re gonna have to deal.

  15. Skyfall June 29, 2014

    Why does this b**** Basic Perry Stan always providing false receipts and fabrications. Prismatic tour is not selling out FACT. On the last Katy post that was on the 26th I could still purchase tickets to her show on the 27th and every date afterwards. So it’s NOT selling out. Why has Teenage Dream been outsold by Loud, Born This Way, 21, and Born To Die, even after 5 #1 and a rerelease. Why has Prism been outsold by Midnight Memories, Beyoncé and Marshall Mathers LP. Even tho her albums came out before them all and had more #1 singles.

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 29, 2014

      Lol bandwagoning b**** you’ve been calling the Prismatic World Tour a flop with NO RECEIPTS AT ALL so let us not. Katy’s UK leg sold out so fast that they had to add extra dates. She sold out the O2 Arena 4 times in a row. If it didn’t sell out the first time, why would they add 3 more dates? Even Forbes predicted it will be the highest grossing pop tour of the year. I can provide receipts, you’ve yet to find any proving the Prismatic World Tour is a flop. Teenage Dream has sold 6 million copies worldwide. That’s about the same as Loud & Plagiarize This Way. That’s over 1 million more then Born To Die. How many times must you try that drag, claiming Teenage Dream is barely past 5 million? WITH NO RECEIPTS TO PROVE IT? The fact that you’re even comparing the most successful rapper ever to Katy PROVES she is the Queen. Prism has sold 3 million in 8 months. Its been outselling Beyonce’s front loaded on a weekly basis for a month now. There is only a 300k gap between them. Prism has been steady at 20k+ worldwide while Bey has been declining every week and selling less then 8k. Prism will outsell her. Last I checked, One Direction outsold your favs latest releases too. And no, I don’t mean Adele, the one you bandwagon for. B**** give up. You will never win.

      • GaGa’s Tampon June 29, 2014

        Gurrrrl no no no
        Don’t even think that you got away with that nasty live Katy didn’t sell out the o2
        Or any of her other uk venues like you claim that she has Wikipedia proves that
        Oh don’t worry I managed to look at the sources from billboard box office which were very and since me might wanna bring in something that’s related to gaga she has outsold all of her shows so far so what was that about her career dying?

      • Skyfall June 29, 2014

        Girl bye, One Direction tour will outgross Katy’s tour, because unlike her their actually selling OUT STADIUMS with a average of 55k and is predicted to join the list of the best selling tours of all time FACT. Teenage Dream has only sold 5.7 million albums world wide. Still doesn’t explain why Loud, Born This Way & 21 has outsold it, with less #1s and a rerelease. I Amit I was wrong about Born To Die but it’s still a kii that it’s less than 1million away without a major hit in a year. You claim she sold out the O2 4 times. Then why does billboard have it at 53871/63574, oh because she didn’t sell it out. Also her tour is at an 85.7% sellout rate. So again quit saying she’s selling out shows.
