She was quoted as saying, "I didn't want the generic pop record that Ke$ha or Lady Gaga or Katy Perry would do. Every song is tailored to me."
Rihanna's comments were alleged to have sparked a pop rivalry among the stars - but Ke$ha has paid little attention to the rumours and she's confident the media is responsible for turning it into a big deal.
She tells Complex magazine, "I haven't even read that. I'm so used to the media flipping my words around that I'm sure she meant absolutely no offence to me or Katy or Gaga - Rihanna and me are totally cool, we were just on tour together, and I know that she and Katy are good friends. I don't take any offence because I'm sure it's bulls**t anyway."
