Katy Perry in Katy Perry was high when she recorded "California Gurls."

The singer was overcome by the weed smoked by her collaborator Snoop Dogg [currently going by the name Snoopzilla], when they recorded a rap in the middle section of the song, for her last album Teenage Dream.

"It was really cool. He came by the studio, played the song and rolled a J. Everybody was contact [passively] high. But he was super-cool and he's been around forever. It's really amazing if you meet someone that's been around for 20 to 25 years and they're still cool, because sometimes they aren't," Katy is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying.

The first song Katy wrote for her latest album, Prism, was "By the Grace of God," which has a much darker tone, as it was inspired by Katy's breakup with ex-husband Russell Brand, and she admits she was in a bad way when she wrote it.

Elton John and Lindsay LohanElton John says Lindsay Lohan inspired one of his new songs.

The "Candle in the Wind" hitmaker admits the title track of his new album, The Diving Board, which deals with the subject of success at a young age and the perils of fame, was written with the troubled Mean Girls star - who recently completed 90 days of court-ordered rehab - in mind.

"It could be a summation of my career because it's about young people becoming successful and diving off into the unknown. What's going to happen? Are they going to survive it? Are they going to become victims of their own success? Are other people going to prey on them and destroy them? You could actually say it's about me, but I was thinking about Lindsay Lohan when I was writing it."

When asked if she'd collaborate with Eminem by AccessHollywood.com, she replied, "I'd love to." The vocalist - famed for her ballads - also talked about getting the seal of approval from her son Rene-Charles, 12, after he found out she'd worked with Sia Furler - who has penned hits including "Titanium" with David Guetta and "Diamonds" for Rihanna - on her new album. "When I told [Rene] I was getting ready to do another album and that there's a new song called 'Loved Me Back to Life' and it was Sia who actually wrote it for me, he said, 'No way.' He couldn't believe it because I'm not cool, and I'm not Rihanna," she explained.

Chris BrownChris Brown appears to have revoked his intention to retire.

The "Beautiful People" singer said he was quitting music last month claiming people were too caught up with his private life to pay attention to his tracks, but the lure of the studio seems to have proved too great to keep him away for long. "One thing you can't do is make more songs than me. I'ma robot in da booth. Limiting your self is the worst thing u can do. #BEGREAT" he wrote on Twitter. "The party don't ever stop so the show must continue!"

Chris, 24, then retweeted a link to a new single he features on, "Show Me" by Los Angeles rapper Kid Ink.

The positive outlook comes a month after Chris said he was "tired of being famous" and wants to stop after his upcoming album X because he's fed up of still hitting the headlines for the domestic violence altercation he had with ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
