Katy Perry threw some shade at Kanye West's latest music video while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday.

Perry attended the talk show with boyfriend John Mayer as the two were promoting their new duet "Who You Love." In the video for the new single the singers are featured singing to each other as several couples ride on mechanical bulls.

Asked if the couple's clip "was a response" to West's "Bound 2" video, which features a topless Kim Kardashian riding on motorcycle as Wests raps, Perry said theirs was a more authentic version.

"Yes. I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though," she said mocking a scene in which Kardashian's hair is somehow blowing in the same direction the motorcycle is supposed to be moving in the clip.

"This is why I don't need to talk at home," Mayer added as the audience laughed. "This is why voice messages are just fine. I get these chestnuts."

West's "Bound 2" clip has received a lot of attention and criticms over its cheesy and unrealistic scenes. While explaining the video to Power 105, West disclosed he simply wanted to "take white trash and make it into a video."

"I wanted it to look as phony as possible, he said. "I wanted the clouds to go in one direction, the mountains to go in another, the horses to go over there, I wanted to show that this is the 'Hunger Games,' this is the type of imagery that's being presented to all of us, the only difference is there's a black dude in the middle of it."
