Katy Perry 'not impressed' by Beth Ditto

The feud between Katy Perry and Beth Ditto has escalated after the 'I Kissed A Girl' singer responded to comments made by the Gossip frontwoman.

Ditto, who is gay, accused Perry of offending gay and lesbian culture in her lyrics. The Gossip singer branded 'I Kissed A Girl' a "boner dyke anthem for straight girls who like to turn guys on by making out or, like, faking gay," and accused Perry of "riding on the backs of our culture, without having to pay any of the dues and not being actually lesbian or anything at all."

Perry, however, hit back in an interview with the London Paper: "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." The 25-year-old continued: "I've learned in the past year that one artist should never insult another artist's music — it’s tacky."
