Katy Perry said recent media reports, casting her as Rihanna's shoulder to cry on since the fallout from the Barbadian beauty's Feb. 8 altercation involving Chris Brown, have been severely exaggerated.
"I don't think I really, like, reached out to her," Perry told MTV News Thursday. "I pride myself on having cool chicks in my life, and she's a cool chick. We've hung out a couple times. Of course I consider her a friend, but it's not like 'I'm there,' making a big deal of it, because I feel weird about that type of stuff."
The 24-year-old said that her friendship with the fellow pop princess is built on the common bond they share taking a "crazy roller coaster" ride of fast fame in their respective careers.
The California-born cutie proved she doesn't run hot and cold in her friendships, as she remained mum when asked about how Rihanna is doing these days.
"I think she's doing fine. I don't know," Perry said. "You should ask her." (Photo: PR Photos)
