Rihanna Dismisses Lady Gaga, Katy Perry as ‘Generic Pop’

After being dismissed as a lightweight by Taylor Momsen, Rihanna apparently feels that it’s time to talk some smack herself.

The “Rude Boy” singer got a little rude herself during an interview with BBC’s Radio 1, dismissing the work of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Ke$ha as nondescript fluff. Discussing her upcoming album Loud (out on November 12), Ri-Ri opined,

“[Loud is] just the perfect Rihanna album. Every song is tailored to me. I wanted songs on there that were all Rihanna songs, that nobody else could do. I didn’t want the generic pop record that Ke$ha or Lady Gaga or Katy Perry could do.”

Something tells us that a few people might have a thing or two to say about that.
