Katy Perry Tries to Back Out of Lady Gaga Insult

Katy Perry made a bold Twitter statement shortly after the release of Lady Gaga‘s Alejandro video, decrying the use of “blasphemy as entertainment.” It seems pretty obvious that Perry’s tweet was inspired by Gaga’s Catholic S&M imagery — but when confronted about it this weekend, the “California Gurls” singer issued a (pretty unconvincing) denial. On a French radio show on Sunday (see clip below), Perry was asked, via a translator, “What’s your problem with Lady Gaga?” After clarifying that the comment wasn’t directed “completely towards her,” Perry, 25, began to hem and haw more than a senator in a sex scandal.
