OK! Magazine tweeted a very public apology to the pop star for blatantly lying about Perry's private life, and for spying on a personal event at her home.
In the March 2, 2015 print edition of OK! Magazine, we wrongly stated that Katy Perry was pregnant, and that she was planning a wedding.— OK! Magazine USA (@OKMagazine) March 30, 2015
We acknowledge that Ms. Perry is not pregnant, and she is not planning a wedding. We regret the mistake and sincerely apologize to Ms. Perry— OK! Magazine USA (@OKMagazine) March 30, 2015
for publishing the error. We also apologize for including paparazzi photos of Ms. Perry that had been taken with a long lens while— OK! Magazine USA (@OKMagazine) March 30, 2015
she was having a private function at her home.— OK! Magazine USA (@OKMagazine) March 30, 2015
The story in question, which has since been removed from their website, alleged that Perry was two months pregnant and that she would be marrying so-called baby daddy John Mayer in April.
The definitely not pregnant pop star retweeted OK!'s apology and added her own forceful reminder to fans.
REMEMBER these magazines are fiction designed for entertainment. NO ONE speaks for me. Instead let the previous tweets speak for themselves.— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) March 30, 2015
What's interesting about this particular situation is that certain tabloids completely fabricate stories about celebrities all the time, yet they rarely are forced to retract anything. What's different about this case? The singer must have been incensed enough about the content of the article, the photos or both to have gotten her legal team involved — and we say good for her!
