Pop superstar Katy Perry visited “The Breakfast Club” recently and spoke about her “Dark Horse” collaborator, Memphis, Tenn. rapper-producer Juicy J. Perry had nothing but kind words for the Three 6 Mafia founder, but when speaking about why she loved working with Juicy, the songstress threw a backhanded diss toward Young Money rapper Drake.
“He’s such a sweet, genuine guy. [He’s] an amazing hard worker,” Katy Perry said regarding Juicy J. “I’ve worked with a lot of people that I’ve done little pieces on songs and not that they’ve got ego, but Juicy’s the kindest. He’s like the kindest, sympathetic, sweet — I don’t wanna make him out like to be softer than Drake … I love Drake. He’s like my secret diary.”
That “softer than Drake” line is sure to get the attention of the Toronto-born YMCMB superstar.
Nonetheless, Perry went on to say that she’s enjoyed the fact that her single has gotten love outside of the mainstream pop crowd and admitted that she’s even surprised that she’s still as popular as she has been over the past several years.
“Yeah, I’m really surprised to both,” she said. “And I’m actually really surprised in general that I’m even still here. I’m like ‘What’s going on? You guys still believe me? Am I manipulating everyone?’ I mean, I don’t know. But honestly, we never really planned on ‘Dark Horse’ being a single and it just became a literal dark horse.”
