London: Her best friend Rihanna missed her wedding but pop star Katy Perry is not holding it against her.

The `I Kissed A Girl` hitmaker has defended the R&B star`s failure to attend, saying that it was "just one of those really unfortunate things", although she "was upset" that Rihanna couldn`t make it to the nuptials.

Perry had an October wedding with British funnyman Russell Brand in India this year and Rihanna, who organised Perry`s bachelorette party, was expected to be the maid of honor at the ceremony, Contactmusic reported.

The `Umbrella` hitmaker was unable to attend her friend`s big day because of her busy schedule. Perry explained that she completely understood why she was not present and claims they are "still the very best of friends".

"I was upset she couldn`t make it but let me promise you, there was no one more upset about it than her. When you have an album coming out you don`t have a spare second in the day and you`re answerable to the record company," said the 26 year-old singer.

"She felt really bad she couldn`t be there but we`re still the very best of friends. My girl organised the best bachelorette party ever and I`ll always love her to bits. It was just one of those really unfortunate things", she added.
