Katy Perry Denies Benji Madden Hook-up

Katy Perry used her blog (who needs a press agent?) to deny that she and Benji Madden are an item.

Recent reports alleged that Perry, 24, and Paris Hilton’s ex Madden were seen cozying up to each other after Perry’s Valentine’s Day gig at the Wasted Space club at the Hard Rock Casino is Vegas over the weekend.

Not quite, says the “I Kissed A Girl” singer, who recently danced amidst fruit at the Grammys.

“oh kittens! It’s two pseudo famous people sitting next to each other… doesn’t mean we were bumping uglies!” Perry writes. “You know I don’t just do that with anyone! That’s just how the media works, as you can tell. I was there celebrating a really fun show and a boozy valentines with all my good friends. We were like a group of 25! Benji is a nice young fellow, but my heart really belongs to kitty purry/markus molinari.”

Can we assume that’s her cat?

Perry broke up with Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes in January, and although denying she’s with Madden—she is in the market for a boyfriend. At least according to her blog.
