Katy Perry - Katy Perry Receives Tv Apology From Barbara Walters

Katy Perry has received a formal apology from veteran U.S. broadcaster Barbara Walters after the pop star was scolded for showing up late to a special Tv interview in 2011.

The I Kissed a Girl hitmaker recently revealed she had risked the wrath of the revered reporter after running behind schedule for the meeting, which occurred just weeks before her then-husband Russell Brand filed for divorce to end their one-year marriage.

She told Billboard magazine, "When I got there, I apologised immediately, but then she said to me, 'You know, I've only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?'

"I was like, 'Oh, snap! Yes, b**ch!' I think it's the coolest thing that Barbara Walters shaded (trashed) me."

Perry, who had kept her relationship woes a secret during the media chat, went on to admit that she should have pulled out of the Top 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 interview altogether because she was facing such a tough time in her private life.

Her confessions have now prompted Walters to reach out to Perry to express her sympathies as she had no idea how much pressure the pop star had been under.

Addressing the singer's comments on her U.S. talk show The View on Monday (30Sep13), Walters said, "Katy, if I made you feel at all unhappy, during a time when you were obviously unhappy, and I didn't know, I'm sorry, but you can't always know!"
