You probably heard about poor Spencer, the guy who was catfished into thinking he was dating Katy Perry for six years. Well, Perry heard about him too, and she discussed the situation briefly during an interview on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up Show. Here’s how it went down:
The Morning Mash Up Show: Did you hear about this poor guy who got catfished into thinking he was having an online relationship with you? For like six years? Did you hear about it?
Katy Perry: Yeah, someone sent me a link and I didn’t actually read through it because I just think it’s really unfortunate and very sad.
The Morning Mash Up Show: It’s terrible! Apparently he wasn’t wide awake.
Perry: Oh yeah, well, not everyone can be, but I think that — my heart goes out to him actually because anybody that’s been fooled like that — people have dreams and people live in different parts of the world where not everything is so accessible. We live on the coasts and we get stuff in a way that other people don’t get and I feel bad for him. So I didn’t really like to indulge in that because my heart would die.
The Morning Mash Up Show: Us too. That was terrible!
Pop stars — they’re just like us. This whole thing was really hard to watch, and the person that baited poor Spencer for six years might be a sociopath. Listen to the interview below.
