Rihanna has confirmed rumours  she will record a collaboration with Katy Perry.

Rihanna told Access Hollywood she and Katy Perry have wanted to work together for years, but now - finally - plans are starting to take place. She said "the song will probably come out in a while. I can't say it's happening right now, but it's going to happen."

Meanwhile, Rihanna had a lot of praise for Katy Perry, gushing: "she is one of my favourite musicians as well as one of my favourite people in the industry. She's very uncalculated, very sure of herself, and that's something that's very rare in this industry to find. We connected really quickly."

We are very excited by the thought of this collaboration. Fingers crossed it will happen soon!
