Jeff Bezos delivered Lil Nas X and Katy Perry to an Amazon party in Seattle

Alexa, aren’t there better ways to treat Amazon staff?

August 21, 2019

Lil Nas X and Katy Perry were guests of Jeff Bezos as Amazon staff celebrated a post-Prime Day party in Seattle on Tuesday night. "Old Town Road" star Lil Nas X posted a picture of himself alongside Bezos and Perry with the caption: "I am the now the new owner of Amazon and I stole Katy Parry's dog."

The party in Seattle followed Amazon's annual Prime Day, the annual shopping holiday exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers. This year's event was notable for two things: Amazon hosting a concert in New York with headlined by Taylor Swift and some staff members striking in protest at poor working conditions and inadequate pay.

Earlier this week Lil Nas X's 19-week reign at No.1 ended when "Old Town Road" was knocked off the top spot by Billie Eilish and "Bad Guy." Katy Perry, meanwhile, recently dropped new song "Small Talk" and lost a multi-million dollar copyright lawsuit to Christian rapper Flame.
