Members of the #BritneyArmy who still haven’t forgiven Pop princess Katy Perry for shading Britney Spears during an interview by referencing that infamous 2007 breakdown will be none too pleased to learn oops…she’s done it again.
While the effort was much more subtle this time around, it still garnered no fewer side eyes from social media shade detectors. The details inside:
After Perry took to Instagram to share this excerpt from a Music Connection interview with famed Canadian songwriter/producer Greg Wells. Having worked with the Grammy-nominee on her ‘Witness’ album track, ‘By the Grace of God,’ the ‘Prism’ album track, ‘Choose Your Battles,’ and more over her storied career, Wells stated:
Britney fans immediately hopped to her defense. Slamming Perry and Wells along the way, the backlash gained so much traction the songwriter took to his Instagram page to clarify the comment.

Britney Spears is so good at what she does, and I never said anything meant to throw shade on Britney or her career. In my mind, Britney is a world class entertainer. Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston also didn’t write their own songs. Many iconic singers through the ages didn’t write their own material, from Frank Sinatra to Ariana Grande. I was simply pointing out the difference that Katy has always written her own songs and is her own creative director. That doesn’t mean one is better than the other. It means the approach is different. I stand by what I said in the Music Connection interview, which was that Britney doesn’t write her own songs and Katy Perry does….. am I wrong?
