Katy Perry: It’s all about Beyoncé

Katy Perry has praised Beyoncé Knowles for her super-successful surprise album.

The pop diva amazed her fans when she released an unannounced album in the early hours of Friday morning.

Her self-titled surprise offering caused iTunes to crash as eager fans tried to get their hands on a copy and other A-listers have reacted to the exciting news.

"B done broke the internet. #stanning," Katy tweeted in amazement.

"Don't talk to me today unless it's about @Beyonce THANX (sic)."

Among the 14 tracks are collaborations with her husband Jay Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Frank Ocean.

Her daughter Blue Ivy also features on a track and Perez Hilton weighed in on the talented star's ability to juggle so many balls at once.

"If @Beyonce can go on a world tour, record a new album, film 17 music videos, be a mom and a wife - then I can wake up and #BeLikeBeyonce!!! (sic)," the gossip blogger tweeted.

Chloë Grace Moretz also seems taken with Beyoncé's latest record.

"I'm in love with @Beyonce she has reinvented music and the industry. Sexiest album. (sic)," she said, praising the 32-year-old.

Snoop Dogg added: "my girl @beyonce just changed d game !! (sic)"

Most artists spend a lot of time doing promotional interviews and pushing their work on social networking sites.

The singer revealed in a statement why she wanted to go back to basics.

"I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that," she stated. "I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”
