Katy Perry - Katy Perry: 'Sick Of Fame Remark Meant In Jest'

Katy Perry has come under fire for complaining she is sick of fame in a recent interview, but she is adamant her comments were meant as a joke.
The I Kissed A Girl hitmaker was subjected to a harsh backlash after she told the May (12) issue of Teen Vogue she was "tired of being famous".
She was quoted as telling the magazine, "I'm tired of being famous already, but I'm not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do."
Critics accused the pop star of taking her stellar career for granted, but now she has moved swiftly to clear up her remarks.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, Perry writes, "O (sic) the joy of something verbally said being taking out of complete context in print. This is why there's a continuous (love/hate) for the media world.
"You see, the fame quote was spoken in jest (which is typical of me) but it's not really about that. The fact is: my success, & you my fans have afforded me the most incredible luxury: to grow as an artist & a human. That, I could not be more grateful for."
