Katy Perry has denied reports that Beach Boys' record label is set to take legal action over her song California Gurls.
"Just to be clear... no one is suing anyone," she tweeted. "The press just loves to once again fabricate and exaggerate stories to get hits or sell papers."
Perry retaliated amidst reports that the Beach Boys' label, Rondor Records, had threatened to take legal action against Perry's label, Capitol Records.
At the end of Perry's number, rapper Snoop Dogg says: I really wish you all could be California gurls.
The controversy began because the line recalls a Beach Boys song.A spokesperson for Beach Boys' label told Billboard magazine, "There is no lawsuit against the writers or publishers of California Gurls. It is up to the six writers and various publishers of California Gurls to decide whether they honour the claim or not."
