Harris to work with Perry?

Scottish DJ Calvin Harris is planning a summer collaboration with Katy Perry - after the 'I Kissed a Girl' singer begged him to be her Phil Spector.

Perry is a huge fan of the dance music star and sent him a long email asking him to work with her on her next album.

But the message took a dark twist when Perry suggested Harris reminded her of Wall of Sound producer Spector, who is currently on trial for the 2003 death of actress Lana Clarkson.

Harris told the BBC: "There are some murmurings about (working with) Katy Perry. But you can never tell with Americans whether it'll happen or not.

"She sent me a big long email comparing me to Phil Spector, which I found incredible - but you've got to laugh haven't you?

"We're possibly doing something. There are a bunch of people that I could be doing stuff with - to be honest probably half of it won't work out because I'm on the road for most of the year now.

"But I'm a massive fan of Katy Perry. She wants to do, like, a fun album, like a dance album but obviously still pop. I kind of fit that bill so I guess that's why she thought of me."
