Katy Perry recent quotes on fame to Teen Vogue’s May issue are receiving a little more backlash that she bargained for, especially from the women of The Talk. Opening up to the mag about her failed marriage to Russell Brand and being in the spotlight, she said,  “I’m tired of being famous already. But I’m not tired of creating."

The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne wasn't so sympathetic to the "Fireworks" singer, saying on Tuesday's program, “What are you doing you silly little girl?! ... You wanted it, you got it, now shut up!"

Julie Chen added, "Don't say it publicly. Get a therapist."

Co-host Sheryl Underwood chimed in that Katy need to learn how to "navigate" her popularity and that may not be by dating a famous European supermodel and sitting front row with him at Paris Fashion Week.

Katy responded to the recent backlash of her Vogue quotes, tweeting:

She later added: "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."

Katy's full Teen Vogue quote reads: 

“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. I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible — when I meet fans and they're crying, I'll say, 'Calm down, there's nothing to cry about. I'm not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. 'Let's just hang out and have a good time.' But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you'll only end up completely confused."
What do you think of Katy’s comments, were they taken out of context? Were the women of The Talk too hard on her? Sound off in the comments.

    Katy Perry is an HONEST PERSON...she speaks her mind & that is refreshing. Thank God she isn't another boring robotic censored celebrity! Perhaps instead of being so judgemental (Sharon), accept that each unique person has his/her own unique experience. I appreciate Katy's unapologetic candid remarks and bravery to stand out from the 'crowd' mentality.

    Saying "I'm tired of being famous" is HARDLY a big complaint. The woman just went through a very public divorce, of course she misses her privacy. I respect her for being honest about the double- edged sword that is fame, rather than pretending it's rainbows and butterflies all the time and trying to sell the image of perfection.

    PLLLEEAAASSEE! Katy sold her soul to be famous. Not a fan of Sharon but in this case she is right. Katy is acting like a silly child. She asked for it and got it and now she is complaining?? Oh brother! Katy puts herself out there in way more ways than her job requires - she loves the attention.

    i watched her e true hollywood story and for years she has struggled to become famous, now that she is she doesnt want part of it? wtf is her problem? And yes, this is stuff you tell a therapist, not someone who's giving you an interview for the fame you are tired of. I'm tired of her.

    I'm with Katy, the ladies on the talk are way harsh and are probably jealous of her looks and fame. She just probably didn't realize how hard celebrity life can be and how much people can and will be in her personal business. It makes perfect sense, if you are a creative person, you don't necessarily want to be in the spotlight, you want to create in peace. I don't see how anyone would know the extent of the media pressures without having gone through them. The ladies of The Talk are well seasoned and have forgotten where their true roots lie and how they got to where they are. Plus, why would they be trying to identify with statements made in a teen magazine? I'm 'Team Katy' all the way!! Woot, Woot!! :-)

    ... and you would think Sharon Osbourne would know that by now. Celebrities can name hundreds of times they personally have been misquoted or misunderstood, but never seem to realize that also applies to other celebrities.

    How would I know if her quotes were taken out of context unless someone reveals the full transcript of this part of the conversation? Magazines always cut, edit and rearrange whatever the person says. Even if the writers/editors are honest they may still misunderstand the point of a remark and by moving things around make it even more likely to be misunderstood.

    I agree with Sharron on this Katy went over the top wit h what she said. yeah fame is a bitch but if you can't handle the heat don't try to be in the industry in the first place
