As allegations about the behind-the-scenes world of Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show continue to mount, some in Hollywood have made public statements about their own uncomfortable dealings with DeGeneres, and many others appear to be laying low about the matter–but not Katy Perry. The pop star came strongly to Degeneres’s defense in a pair of tweets posted around midnight.

Perry has been a frequent guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, dropping by 13 times since since 2008. Many on Twitter quickly responded to Perry’s messages by pointing out that it is possible that the experience of a high-profile celebrity guest of a talk show might be different than that of the staff that produces that show.

DeGeneres doesn’t have many outspoken supporters at this point, but Perry isn’t totally alone. Diane Keaton and comedian Kevin Hart have also made statements on behalf of the controversial host.
