Katy Perry responds to Twitter follower who says her career is over

Pop singer keeps it classy when she addresses a negative tweet from a Britney fan

Katy Perry has responded in a classy fashion to a Twitter follower who said her career is over.

A user called @godneybjs – presumably a hardcore Britney Spears fan – tweeted at Perry: “Rise flopped and your career is over.”

‘Rise’, Perry’s first new track since her 2014 album ‘Prism’, peaked at Number 11 in the US and Number 25 in the UK, making it one of the singer’s less successful singles.


Addressing the negative tweet, Perry replied with a kiss emoji and the comment: “see you at my show 2K17”.

Perry has yet to announce any kind of 2017 tour, but she is presumably planning to play live in support of her upcoming fifth album, which doesn’t have a title or release date yet.

She gave fans an update on the album last month (August), saying during a radio interview: “I’m growing as an artist – I’m working with different producers that maybe people wouldn’t imagine me to work with, or different co-writers or things like that.”


“I am right in the thick of it, doing a lot of experimenting and definitely taking some chances this record,” she added.

‘Prism’ dropped in October 2013 and spawned the hit singles ‘Roar’, ‘Dark Horse’, ‘Birthday’, ‘This Is How We Do’ and ‘Unconditionally’.
