June 8, 2017: Assassination of Character
In an interview with NME, Katy tried to explain why she brought up the feud at all with James Corden. "Well, [Late Late Show host] James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe," she said. "No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth." She went on: "I mean, I'm not Buddha — things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans]. That's so messed up!"
