Ke$ha is concerned One Direction fans want to beat her up after she was rumoured to be dating Harry Styles.

The 'Die Young' hitmaker is worried the group's supporters - who are known as Directioners - will give her abuse on the street after she recently revealed she has been texting the 19-year-old hunk and admitted to having a crush on him.

She told LOOK magazine: "I hope they don't want to beat me up, I'm just a fan too."

Despite the speculation, the 26-year-old singer insists the pair are just good friends and their messages don't have any sexual connotations.

She explained: "He and I area just friends. Actually we started texting a long time ago and we're just friendly, it's not sexy."

As well as her crush on Harry, Ke$ha thinks Beyonce has a "perfect" look.

She added: "I think she might actually be perfect. I show my flaws - they're real. I don't have a perfect body. It's important for girls to see that you don't have to be perfect."
