Singer Ida Maria has blasted U.S. pop star Katy Perry, insisting her anthem I KISSED A GIRL is "painful" to listen to.
The I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked star has hit out at 23-year-old Perry, who is enjoying worldwide success with her sexy hit, branding her a fake "product" of commercialism.
She says, "I just think Katy Perry is wasting her time. I Kissed A Girl is not a very sexy song.
"She sounds like Avril Lavigne, a product. Good for her on getting to number one but the song is painful to listen to.
"Katy says the music business needs more females with opinions, but she falls on her own argument because she has been constructed by guys. I don't think it's real."
