Katy Perry: Not Impressed.

Katy Perry: Not Impressed.

Oh dear, it seems as though Katy Perry has annoyed yet another one of her fellow musicians after an American singer/songwriter has gone on a foul-mouthed rant over the star’s hit single, I Kissed A Girl.

Jill Sobule is more than a little cross that saucy Miss Perry has nabbed the title of Jill’s 1995 single and used it for her own personal gain in the global music charts… eek!

Jill’s single did have the same title of Katy’s hit, but unfortunately for her, it featured completely different music and lyrics… and although the song was released a year ago, Jill has now decided to make a song and dance about it and is convinced that it can't be coincidence that they were both signed by the same music executive.

Speaking to the Sun Jill blasted: "As a musician I have always refrained from criticizing another artist. I was, 'Well, good for her.’ It did bug me a little bit, however, when she said she came up with the idea for the title in a dream.

"In truth, she wrote it with a team of professional writers and was signed by the very same guy that signed me in 1995. I have not mentioned that in interviews as I don't want to sound bitter or petty, because that's not me. Okay, maybe, if I really think about it, there were a few jealous and p***ed off moments.

"So here goes, for the first time in an interview... F*** you Katy Perry, you f***ing stupid, maybe 'not good for the gays', title thieving, haven't heard much else, so not quite sure if you're talented, f***ing little slut."

Speaking about watching Katy's I Kissed A Girl top charts around the world, she told TheRumpus: "When her version came out I started getting tons of inquiries about what I thought. Some folks were angry and wondered why she took my title and made it into this kind of 'girls gone wild' thing. Others, including my mother, were excited because they thought I would somehow make some money out of it. Unfortunately you can't copyright a title... bummer."
