American pop star Katy Perry has lashed out at the Australian press on Twitter after an ugly encounter with the paparazzi.
The singer says that multiple male photographers accosted her as she took a walk on the beach, taunting her, refusing to leave her alone, and saying they would only stop if she gave them a photo in a bathing suit.
She then shared photos of three of the men who had followed her.
Her fans responded with messages of support.
Perry is currently traveling across Australia on her Prismatic World Tour, playing 23 dates there through the middle of December.
