WTF? Katy Perry Mocks Britney Spears’ Mental Illness at the Grammys… Twice

By  | 

Katy Perry experienced a lot of ups and downs last night. On the one hand, she was praised for her performance of her new single, “Chained to the Rhythm,” particularly for the political statement she made wearing a “PERSIST” arm band and standing in front of the U.S. Constitution at the end. On the other hand, some of the comments she made on the red carpet prior to the event were so problematic, they basically negate any positive remarks that were made about her act.

While speaking to Ryan Seacrest on the RC, the 32-year-old singer took a few jabs at Britney Spears. When Ryan called attention to Katy’s musical drought prior to “CttR,” the new-blonde explained, “That’s called taking care of your mental health. And I haven’t shaved my head yet.” If you remember, the now-35-year-old “Hold It Against Me” singer shaved her head in 2007 during a very-public mental breakdown.

But, wait, it didn’t stop there. When asked about her new hair hue, Katy said, “It’s like the last color in the spectrum that I can do. I’ve done all of them. The only thing left to do is, like, shave my head, which I’m really saving for a public breakdown.”

Needless to say, the Internet was not pleased:

The one good thing that came out of it is that Britney stans & Taylor Swift fans are joining forces:
