Singer Ditto, who is lesbian, had accused Perry of using lyrics that are offensive to gay culture.
“I don’t want to get into a slanging war with anybody so I don’t want to say anything bad about her,” Perry told The London Paper. “But I’m not impressed.”
Ditto had described ‘I Kissed A Girl’ as a, “Boner dyke anthem for straight girls who like to turn guys on by making out or, like, faking gay,” adding that, “She’s [Perry] just 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 added: “I’ve learned in the past year that one artist should never insult another artist’s music — it’s tacky.”
