We all love Beyonce and we're glad to see that even Queen Bey's fellow celebs know what's up. We know Kanye West loves Beyonce because...yeah, we all remember that. Now Katy Perry is singing her praises, too, and she didn't even have to interrupt anyone's acceptance speech to do it.

The pop star is featured on the cover of the March issue of Elle magazine (on stands February 17) and inside, she dished about prepping for her Super Bowl performance, her super stardom and on a related note, her fellow pop stars.

First, she was asked how she felt about Beyonce - which is kind of like asking someone how they feel about cake. If you don't like it, we simply can't be friends. End of discussion. Fortunately, we can be friends with Katy...

"Oh my God. I'm such a big Beyonce fan," she gushed. "Beyonce just put out a video! You've got to see this video!" she said, referencing the poignant 'Yours and Mine' video. "I was like, Finallllly. Finally I see you. I don't see some propaganda version of you. I see you. I relate to who you are."

She also dished about other singers like Adele, saying she's "so real and couldn't care less about the trappings of fame."

Speaking of fame, Katy says can really get to you. Like really, REALLY get to you. "It is a hundred times harder a dream than the dream that I dreamt when I was nine...You think you signed up for one thing, but you automatically sign up for a hundred others. And that is why you see people shaving their f**king heads."

Hey, hey, hey...is that a Britney Spears diss?! First of all, it grew back and second of all, our girl BritBrit is killing it right now!

As far as her role in the pop music world, Katy says the media seems to have a set "cast of characters" that they use. "Who is the sweetheart, who is the villain? You know. Taylor's the sweetheart. Kanye's the villain. That's the narrative," she explained.

Katy seems to be cool with Kanye, so it looks like she's saying him being the 'villain' is strictly a media portrayal, but does that mean she's saying Taylor's 'sweetheart' portrayal is wrong, too?

What do you guys think, did Katy just diss Taylor?
