Why is Katy Perry picking on Britney Spears?

So Katy Perry and Britney Spears are fighting now. During a few red carpet interviews at the Grammys last night, Katy — who apparently is a big fan of the V now, above — took some shots at Britney’s head-shaving incident 10(!) years ago. Dammit now I feel old. From the New York Daily News:

When asked why she’s been on a break from recording Perry replied: “It’s called taking care of your mental health,” and then added, “I haven’t shaved my head yet.”

Perry made the same snide comment during an interview with CBS later when talking about her ever-changing hair color.

“It’s like the last color in the spectrum that I can do,” she said. “I’ve done all of them and the only thing left to do is shave my head, which I’m really saving for a public breakdown.”

This is terrible. Katy should be ashamed of herself . . . using the same joke in two different interviews? What was she thinking? There’s so much more material she could have used. For example, she could have made fun of Britney’s niece Maddie who almost died in an ATV accident last week. Hah! Or she could have made fun of Britney’s grandma Emma Jean who killed herself with a shotgun in 1966 at the grave of her infant son. LOL! Or maybe she could have poked fun at how Britney’s BFF and former choreographer Andre died suddenly when he was only 40. Hehe! Time to do some homework for your next interview, Katy. Show that chick with a serious mental illness who’s boss!
