Ask Britney Spears what it means to fall from the public eye and rise again. The singer has been through major hell and has come back. But then there are some like Katy Perry who haven’t forgotten Spears’ dark days.
At the Grammys 2017 stage, Katy Perry won hearts with the performance on her new single “Chained to the Rhythm” but on the red carpet, it was another case altogether. Fans may have noticed that Perry has been MIA for some time.
Reason For Katy Perry’s Absence From Public Eye
When Ryan Seacrest from E! News asked her about her being missing from the spotlight, she said that she has been taking care of her mental health. Okay, we get it, everyone deserves a break and rightly should get one.

But what we didn’t understand is Katy Perry referencing on someone else’s struggle days to justify her own. She quips saying, “I haven’t shaved my head yet.” The statement makes no sense without any background to it. The premise to the statement was the unfortunate incident when Britney Spears shaved her head publicly following a meltdown in 2007.
Britney Spears struggle with Drug Abuse is a much publicized one. Her divorce from ex-husband Kevin Federline and losing the custody of her children was a big low in her life. But the Oops I did it Again singer has left behind her dark days and is now seeing the success of her new album.
Twitter Not Ready To Forgive Katy Perry Easily
Katy Perry is facing the wrath of Britney’s fans on Twitter. Perry had said in an interview, “It’s like the last color in the spectrum that I can do. I’ve done all of them, and the only thing left to do is shave my head, which I’m really saving for a public breakdown.”
Since the comments came on the public forum, Twitter fans started trending #KatyPerryIsOverParty. Many expressed their displeasure with the singer’s comments. Britney Spears may have felt the need to respond to the controversy. But her response doesn’t mention Katy Perry’s name directly. Her latest Instagram post caption reads “Her mouth speaks from that which fills her heart Luke 6:45” (A line from the Bible).
Katy Perry and Britney Spears feud seem to have become a conversation after the Grammys 2017. There has not been any comment from Katy Perry’s side yet. It will be interesting to see if her representatives put out any statement.
