Katy Perry has hit back at Beth Ditto after the Gossip star attempted to start a pop feud with her for "faking gay" in her music.
Homosexual singer Ditto slammed the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker for faking lesbianism in her songs and branded her "offensive to gay culture" for making it trendy.
And Perry was left fuming by the singer's "tacky" attempt to antagonise her and has urged Ditto not to slate other stars.
Perry says, "I heard that she said something about me. I don’t want to get into a slanging war with anybody, so I don’t want to say anything bad about her. But I’m not impressed.
"I’ve learnt in the past year that one artist should never ­insult another artist’s music - it’s tacky. And with me, it always comes back to bite me on the a**e!”
