An absurd new report claims Katy Perry is a cannibal who attends private dinner parties in Hollywood where the guests dine on “human meat.” Despite how preposterous that sounds, Gossip Cop fact-checks even the silliest of fake news stories, and we can exclusively set the record straight.
According to the repeatedly discredited YourNewsWire, which often claims there’s a dark underworld of sinister celebrities, the singer opened up about her cannibalism in a recent interview. The untrustworthy outlet doesn’t mention when or where this alleged interview took place, but vaguely asserts she made the comments “on French radio.” The site quotes Perry as having said, “So many people in Hollywood tell you that human meat is the best meat in the world,” but it’s “gotten a bad rap” due to “squeamish Christians and their hypocritical virtues and morals.”
After supposedly touting the health benefits of human flesh, Perry is further quoted as revealing, “There is a group of old Hollywood guys who have an annual dinner party where the main dish is human… Each year a new host is selected for the following year by drawing straws.” The outlet claims she added, “It is the new host’s responsibility to provide the main course, and it has to be human. If he can’t find a suitable person to serve as the meal… the host will be eaten instead!” After suggesting that Perry is open to the idea of murdering and eating someone, the outlet then notes she typically just feeds on dead bodies. “It tastes like pork,” the singer allegedly said.
Naturally, this nonexistent interview can’t be find anywhere on the Internet. Still, Gossip Cop notified Perry’s rep, and we’re exclusively assured all the quotes attributed to her were fabricated. It’s possible this phony article was concocted because Perry’s music video for “Bon Appetit” features her getting cooked and served like a piece of meat. At one point in the footage, she prepares to eat a cherry pie stuffed with body parts. The singer has explained that the imagery is a metaphor for her sexual liberation, despite the fake news site YourNewsWire seemingly interpreting it as a celebration of cannibalism. Regardless, the outlet’s story is simply ludicrous.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
