After Britney Spears debuted her new video for Hold It Against Me, Katy Perry took to her Twitter account to call BS on people who use too many product placements in music videos. She said, “do it w/style & grace… Not so in ur face like some. U hv to get creative w/it. Some artists don’t care tho, &u can tell.”
It was an obvious jab at Britney, who made a whopping $500,000 off of the product placements in her new video. But Katy decided to address the matter on Twitter again!
She said, “Dear tabloid media aka FILTH: pls note I expressed an overall feeling bout product placement, their roles in vids & the art of them being…complimenting or sticking out. Most, if not ALL popsters welcome deals w/products 2 offset costs of big budget vids in these recessional…music industry times. I’VE used them in MY vids before & am happy 2b able 2 make a better vid because of. Once AGAIN, stop pitting artists..against artist for ur sensational satisfaction & stick to what ur best @: lying, gossiping, exaggerating & overall lending a hand 2 the……deterioration of a generation.”
I still think it was obvious that she was slamming Britney for it. What do you think?
