Is Katy Perry Trying to Back Out of Lady Gaga Insult?

Plus: See Katy Perry's brand new "California Gurls" video!

Katy Perry tickled fans at the MTV Movie Awards with her blue-coiffed performance of "California Gurls" and now, MTV has premiered the sticky-sweet new video for the single (featuring Snoop Dogg). Check it out here:

Meanwhile, the singer 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 Catholicism-meets-S&M imagery in the provocative Alejandro clip -- but when confronted about it this weekend, Perry issued a (pretty unconvincing) denial. On a French radio show on Sunday, 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. Here's what she said:

"Lately I've just been seeing, like, some things that are kind of like, I don't know, in my own personal feelings, a little bit like, not something I would do, I guess? Like, you know when... umm... Madonna was on a cross? And sometimes my boyfriend will say things that are a little bit...? And it's hard for me to say that because sometimes I'm a very hypocritical person."

Uhh, thanks for clearing that up, Katy! The famous pastor's daughter did eventually manage to make a coherent statement on the subject, explaining that she believes "sexuality and spirituality are two different things," and she doesn't necessarily think they should be combined. Sexuality and dessert, on the other hand? Bring it on, California Gurl!
