Katy Perry Says Quotes About Fame Taken Out of Context

Lester Cohen/WireImageKaty Perry uses Twitter to connect with her fans, but she also uses it to set the record straight when she feels she's been misrepresented or misquoted.  Case in point: her recent interview with Teen Vogue magazine.

There were reports that Katy told 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. It's quite a delicate creature -- it's a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you."  But then Katy took to Twitter to clarify those comments, which to some may make her sound ungrateful.

"O the joy of something verbally said being taking out of complete context in PRINT," Katy tweeted. "This is why there's a continuous [love/hate] for the media world."

She went on to explain, "U 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, & u my fans have afforded me the most incredible luxury: to grow as an artist & a human. THAT, I could not be more grateful for."

In the past, Katy has taken to Twitter to deny that she'd dissed a song by Beyonce, deny that she'd criticized both Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, and to denounce anyone commenting on her divorce from Russell Brand other than herself.
